KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 Bottle. Poured a pale to medium yellow with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was that of light grain malts, a flowery hop and a horse blanket yeast. It tasted a little bitter at first and finished with a mild bitter hoppy flavor that was quite crisp. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice crisp refreshing brew, just right for the style.

Drank many since being introduced to Heineken during high school by SN exchange student from the Netherlands 40 years ago. Good when compared to basic BMC’s, it is just another so-so pale lager.

Clear yellow collor beer wih a small white head, medium carbonation. Taste is watery, a small bitter and a little sweet. Not a nice beer

A standard Euro lager. Very clean, more bitterness than American lagers with a hint of citrus, and a very dry finish.

OOKPIKABLE (105) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
Pours like a pale lager. Little aroma to speak of. Tastes of butter, banana and nail polish remover: much better than expected thoug, in the scheme of things, nothing special.

Superb design work, the bottle is appealing, the e is jus tilted enough but the taste is really not there. Also I prefer if I have to too to drink it from the bottle.

500ml can the ultimate euro lager is a mild blend of malt & hops bit bland but always goes down well

PALATE: light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: yet another bulk pale lager a bit watery...

Rotin (61) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle 0,4l. Brewed by Soprony brewery, Hungaria. Low intensity aroma, insipid malty flavor, watery, some unpleasant salty and plastic tones. On the other hand, it could be worse.

Ascelja (61) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle 0,4l, brewed in Hungary. Clear gold body, small white head. Aroma of malt, hop, yeast. Light sweet taste, nothing distinct in it. Note of bitterness and some strange behind dominate "taste of sweet nothing". Without aftertaste. Light and watery body, medium carbonation.
Well, it’s not good, but I awaited something terrible, so... nice surprise? Drinkable, refreshing, without bad chemical bitterness.
