Found it in Supervalu, it was cheap and I was in an experimental mood. first impression was the stale aroma it produced...which was followed by an intense taste that initially made me wonder if I had properly cleaned the beer glass...as it tasted dirty, slightly mouldy. Only redeeming quality is that it’s 5% ABV so the warmth of it’s intensity masks other less than redeeming qualities such as it’s watery consistency and color. I have had much worse beers, but this settles towards the bottom of the other amazingly bland and forgettable ventures.

Can sampled at the cottage in Astee, Ireland - purchased from the local Super Valu. Pours a clear yellow body with light foamy head. Aroma is disgustingly offensive - pure skunk. Mouthfeel is thin with awful notes of pils and skunk. Reminds me of heineken.

[2154-20090515] 500mL can. Sharp flower hops aroma has an unpleasant puky note. Clear, light yellow brown body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Flavour is of dirt and weird flower hops and sweetness. Light-medium body. Poor.
(from Centra, Dublin, Ireland; w/ jerc)

2009-05-15. Crisp yellow body with a small foamy white head. Odd grainy aroma, touch of alcohol. Sweet grains, and odd fruity touches. Flavour is sweet and grainy with sweet cidery touches. Average palate is fuller than expected. Pretty poor, but apparently popular amongst Dublin’s littering community as we did see it quite often around town, which is what prompted us to notice it on the shelf in the first place. Can from Molloy’s Liquor, Dublin

Can. Not much aroma and taste. Slightly grainy, bitter enough finish. A fairly easy drinking lager.

Very tasty in the beginning but lacks a bit depth in the end. But considering the price its worth to try.

KimJohansen (10423) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2008
Sweet aroma with mild yeasty and caramel notes. Sweet fruity flavor with toasted malt, caramel and mild hoppy notes leading it to a bitter finish.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2008
Can bought in Dublin. Malty beer, not unpleasant, but it lacks some hoppy zest. Not very balanced. All right.

larsga (7310) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2008
Medium white shiny coarseish head. Yellow body with carbonation. No real aroma. Dryish sweet corn and grain taste with fruity cardboard notes. Aftertaste is much the same, and quite long. Not bad, but not good, either. (0.5l can, Spar, Dublin.)
