Well this is the stereotypical Euro-macro-lager, and IMHO probably the least enjoyable of the Becks/ Stella Artois/ Peroni/ Sagres pale lager variety. Aroma was strawish or grassy with some sweetness, but mostly bland. Average pale gold color with some head and lacing. The taste struck me as artificially sweet with just maybe a hint of hops. It did have something of a bitter finish that was refreshing, but then left behind an unpleasant straw aftertaste. I usually am more open to European macros over American macros, but there isn’t much that makes drinking this beer worthwhile. But if you’re relying on brand name instead of taste - as the late Freddie Heineken once said "life is all about advertising" - what can you expect from such a beer?

Odour: weak, malt. Taste: In the beginning a little bit sweet, but then goes into citric acidity and a light dry bitterness. Aftertaste: short, slightly bitter. A pleasant hop bitterness, but a little too much with the carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear golden, small white head. Hoppy with a slight bitterness. If I want a pale lager this is one of my go-tos.

bellco33 (511) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Fackin’ lagahs! Drank from a can in a golf cart. I’m assuming it is golden yellow in color with an overcarbonated white head. Aroma of corn, cracker malts, and sugar. Taste is surprisingly not skunk asshole, but is sweet corn and malt with no hop presence. Not offensive, not good.

Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nose is grainy. Aromas of cereals and grassy hops with a soapy hint. Average carbonation, light body. Medium sweet and slightly bitter finish. No surprise here.
