UffyBeerReview (10) - miami, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013
One of those highly commercialized euro macro lagers, which is why itís obviously popular. Pours light yellow. Nothing spectacular on the aroma, bland. Tastes...skunked perhaps, probably because of the green glass on the bottles. Besides a harsh taste overall, the brew redeems itself by some sweet malt, which makes it easier to drink. Overall, this isnít a beer Iím ever going to buy, but if itís free at a gathering, I would have no problem drinking this beer, but itís definitely a low end beer, especially by European standards, but compared to most American macro lagers, such as Bud, Miller, or Coors itís much better.

Bottle pours a highly carbonated almost Pepsi-like style white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Smells of barley, grassy. Crisp mouth feel tastes of light hops, grassy. The aftertaste is similar to that of poor quality water.

0.4l bottle. King of euro-lagers :). Malty aroma. Pale yellow colour with medium white head. Malty taste, bitter and sour. Watery body with high carbonation and grassy and bittery finish. Not a totaly bad beer, but far, far away from a good.

Znane, nawet niezle piwko. Smakiem porownywalne z lidlowym piwem tylko nie traci gazu tak szybko. Zimne polecam.

Demens (163) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 14, 2016
0,5l can. Clear very pale yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: grassy, skunky, booze. Taste: Terrible. Very watery and has an artifical string medicine like tone. Very light body with medium carbonation. Short medicine like finish. Worst beer...

Classic lager will known around the world. Cheap as chips in Thailand. Fruity taste which does get sickly after a few, served classically with a large head.
