Decent mass produced brew. Think Budweiser, only cheaper.

Countbeer (4423) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle: Found some old notes that I had tasted these in the States many years ago. To be honest I canít remember that much of these beers, but next to the beers name I wrote a little bit of info. So these notes are for me, to ensure and complete my list and to use this database as mine too. If you want to consider this as a tick, do so. It is for my own record, that I know I had tasted it once. Nice bitter but a bit watery.

Old rate from about 7 years ago.Golden color,corn and cerealish aroma with a teasing of hops.Tastes pretty weak with the grains and corn being the predominant flavor with just a slight more hops then the previous brews from these people.Ehhh.

Very similar to most other American beers, ie.. Bud and Miller. It is cheaper and has more flavor.
