A very watery beer, misses the typical bitterness, which belongs to beer and thus making it quite well liked among younger people who don’t drink beer for the taste but for the alcohol (I can tell as I am within that age as but I really like the taste of beer)

There is nothing wrong with this beer and it’s cheap! The ingredients are as they should be: water, malted barely and hops. Pours golden yellow and clear with medium small white head. It smells like bread. It taste like bread and corn with a light bitterness. Very slight hop flavour that is citrusy and spicy. It’s a bit watery but very refreshing as well.

sudomorph (853) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
500ml can. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a one finger head that thins to a thick film. Aroma has notes of sweet grains, traditional earthy/spicy/floral hops, and lager esters. Taste is balanced. Slightly toasted grains, touch of caramel, traditional hops, and a short ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a frothy carbonation and mildly dry finish. Overall not a bad brew. Clean and refreshing with classic flavours and an easy drinking mouth feel.

Iconic bottle with the swing top lid anyone of a certain age at some point had grolsch bottle tops in there suede shoes circa 1990, the drink itself is smooth and malty OK for a lager

Resheph (2) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015 does not count
One of the best big-brand pilsners around. Full body experience with a slightly bitter hoppy taste make this an excellent go-to beer.

AlfredoGarcia (104) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 13, 2015
330 ml can. Golden color with low carbonation and white head. Sweet malt smell with wheat, citric, peach, honey and cereal notes. Sweet ceral taste with balanced aftertaste. Surprising beer! Great for it’s value and something you wouldn’t expect from such a huge company. The owners tried something different in terms of taste and they succeded. For a supermarket lager this one is good.

Podane/Served: Lager, 9°C Partia/Batch: EXP:29042015, 0,5l Puszka/Can
Aromat/Aroma: Suchy słodowy; zbożowy; estrowy; chemiczny. / Dry malty; grainy; ester; chemical.
Wygląd/Appearance: Bladożółta klarowna barwa. Piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, równa. Opada do mało estetycznych plam. / Pale yellow clear colour. Vivid, even head; medium particles. Comes down to little estetic spots.
Smak/Taste: Słodki, karmelowy; słomiany. / Sweet, caramel; straw.
Odczucie/Palate: Na granicy wodnistego. Średnie wysycenie. Nieco szorstkie. / On the edge of watery. Medium carbonation. Slightly sharp.
Ogólnie/Overall: Kiepskie, chyba zielonobutelkowy skunks nadaje charakter temu piwu, bo z puszki smakuje jak brzeczka na nieświeżym słodzie. / Poor, maybe green bottle skunk gives this beer its character, because from can tastes like wort on unfresh malt.

Skunk. It's hard to find a good, fresh supply of this. I'm dying to find this on draft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
