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. I have not much to say regarding this beer. Aroma bit grainy, otherwise completely empty and generic beer. Thatís all.

The standard go to beer when there is nothing else to drink. Not a beer enthusiastís choice, but a good stepping stone for moving onto better beers.

colui72 (254) - HONG KONG - JUL 27, 2015
Hadnít had it for ages and I couldnít finish a 20cl glass. Terrible experience. Pale golden with artificial soapy head, aroma of dead malts and a sweet taste of corn malts. Low bitterness and high carbonation. Going downhill. Iíd rather drink water.

Bottle at some pre-football party in ÷rebro Clear white head. Aroma of can and hops Taste bread, some sweetness some bitterness. Typical lager that provides alcohol at parties and warm summer days.

660ml bottle, from the local offy. Syrupy corn. Has some bitterness. Privet leaf and the like. Taste is syrupy. It is what it is. Thereís decent drinkability here.

This is it. The beer we love to hate, the beer we try to avoid, unless. Nothing to like here, but an essential part of a beer geekís education. Try one for yourself, but know beer is much more than that.

nazbion (109) - TŁbingen, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2015
Pours clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma is light pine and skunk, at least it has a hop-ish aroma. Taste is light bitter. Light body, easy drinking. Not much to say, but itís a decent macro for me.

Estebanik (201) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Piana znika bardzo szybko. Aromat dosc czysty, mineralny, leciutko slodowy. W smaku jest bardzo rzesko, wodniscie. Goryczki brak. Jak na koncerniaka jest calkiem bezbolesnie.

Pilsener met een bittere droge smaak. Perfect voor feestjes want na 20 stuks ben je nog niet dronken.
