A pleasant and refreshing lager that's easy to drink. It has a crisp taste that would also be enhanced with a slice of lemon or lime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty aroma. Darker golden colour with very poor head. Malty honey flavor with honey aftertaste. Medium body with low carbonation.

Actually a pleasant sweet malt aroma of this ’budget’ beer. Light clean taste, relatively inoffensive bitterness, little hop presence. Light mouth-feel and poor head retention. An easy drinker.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a thin white head, aroma is light malt with some grass, taste is sweet with citrus fruit with a dry finish.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 Actually thought it was European at first. I was played a fool. Very sweet and easy. Smells a bit strange and leaves quite bad after taste in your mouth after way to many. Cheap, but better than the alternatives at the price.

The head is medium, body blond. It smells watery, bit malty, stale. The taste is watery, bit malty, stale, metal. Crap

For a cheapy a more aromatic nose, but quite soapy on the palate. Hints of flavour, but more being able to chop quantity than delivering quality.

330 ml bottle pours yellow not much aroma bitter taste. Aftertaste is bitter and long lasting. Easy drinking summer beer

A turd, but a slightly polished one, in that it has all the usual macro-wank corny, grainy, slightly grassy and sweet aromas and tastes but in *slightly* larger quantities. Funny how all the shit beers claim to be ’finest quality’. A dozen of these will have you talking the finest shit with your mates as you fry your cheap imported steaks to death on the barby. Maaate!
