Oh, that bottle. Nothing particularly special here. It's an average lager lacking anything further in complexity than that. I would not go out of my way to pick up another.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a very clear amber color which reminds me of Ginger Ale. It pours with a very nice head that slowly fades to nothing. Fairly fine bubbles give a lightness to the mouthfeel. This beer is somewhat sweet with hints of some fruit, perhaps its apple I taste. It also has a slight maltiness as well, with a different and interesting hp flavor on the finish. Overall, I'm surprised by the disguised sweet flavors, and a little impressed with this beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden, small fizzy head. Malty and skunky aroma. (don't use green bottles, suckers!). Metallic flavour with some malt in a very thin body.

cool swingtop bottles--big selling point, i'm sure. strong malty hoppy aroma and a thin, weak, white head. rather uncomplex body; i really expected more from a lager. a little bitterness, but overall not bad.

This beer is either great or horrible depending on the time that you get it. I have had both so it's hard to rate it. If skunked it is swill, if not it is quite good, but not great. Slight bitter aftertaste. So so.

Cool bottle is probably the strongest part of this beer. Not horrible swill by any means, but its just a better than average lager (which isnt saying much as lagers are weak).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have to start by saying that the best thing about this beer is the bottle. Golden-yellow with moderate white head that left good lacing. Typical lager aroma, slightly skunky. Bold malts with piney hops and tart, bitter finish. Medium-light body, nice carbonation and easy drinking.

Hoppy? Malty? Oh, skunky. Another green bottle european beer that you don't need to waste your time with. For what it's worth, it's every bit as good as Heineken. Maybe even better!

It's good for a middle-of-the-road lager, with a slight bitterness and a clean finish, but there are better beers.
