2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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?

The aroma is malty and it has slightly sweet malt flavor. Hop bitterness has notes of flower and is suitable for the beer. Not much of good, but certainly not bad. It is an all-round lager on par with the other giants like Carlsberg, Kronenbourg, Budweiser, etc.

Bottle at a wedding in Berbertown Castle. No surprises with this. Looks and tastes just how you would expect. An average bland lager.

I have tried to like this, but it’s just too sweet and uninteresting. Tasts like the over-proof beer Fax10. Never tried it on tap...I don’t really get

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amarelo claro, espuma de média formação e pouquissima persistência. Aroma bastante herbal/gramínea, levemente ácido. Paladar de amargor leve/médio, sem dulçor, retomando herbal do aroma. Corpo leve e aguado, média carbonatação. Aftertaste prevalece o amargor, desbalanceado do restante da cerveja. Desce só bem gelada, como a maioria das brasileiras, mas ainda assim melhor que Brahma, Skol, etc.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
0.33 l bottle. Aroma: Slightly bitter, light grassy. Appearence: Golden beer, small, white, short-lived head. Taste: Light bitter, no other taste. Palate: thin, very watery. Overall: very good marketing division, no good brewery division.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I suppose I must have drunk this beer about a thousand times over the years. It is a standard eurolager. I tried it the other day on draught at a bar at La Cote Saint Andre at the Berlioz Festival. It is quite poor stuff. Very thin and slightly metallic tasting. Sweet malts (hints of corn?) and very bland hops. Very boring, but not bad when served cold on a hot day.

Pours clear golden, with quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of grains. Taste is watered down, with a poor finish. Not a favorite.

Muy simple, sencilla, ligera, falta de ingredientes. Muy poco sabor. Casi parece que bebas agua. Cerveza 100 comercial

Mało intensywny aromat. W smaku woda, ale ku mojemu zaskoczeniu wybija się nuta alkoholowa. Goryczka niska.
