me gusta por el efecto, al margen de toda consideración por el amargor, es su cabezón efecto lo que me deja marcando ocupado a los minutos. Ninguna otra chela lo provoca, Awesome ˇˇˇˇ I love it ˇˇˇˇ

Not the worst mass Lager. There is bitterness and hops. Not good, but not disgusting

El color bastante bien, para su graduación alcohólica el dulzor no debiese ser problema, pero, en este caso se sentía falso. La cerveza promete algo que no entrega.

Can as Holland Import. It’s okay. Basically a rougher version of Heineken. Corn, malt and alcohol. Bitter with some raw alcohol.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2015 Pours a golden color. Very clear. About two fingers head. Some lacing retention.

Aroma is hops. Not really picking up any malt. Doesn’t smell overly sweet.

Taste is heavy on grassy hops. It’s not overly hoppy, but certainly a pilsener. Bitter, but I look for a little something on the finish to balance it out. It’s a little metallic. It might also be a tiny bit sweet in there too.

Mouthfeel is very crisp and clean. It’s pretty dry. There’s something about it that makes me want a drink of water after each sip. I’ve never experienced that before when drinking a beer.

Overall, I like it. It’s worth it for the price. I read some of the reviews and it’s not like Heineken. When you factor in the price, this is a lot better than Heineken. It’s pretty cheap, and it’s pretty good. So I would certainly buy this again.

Drinkable... nice golden color in the glass. Grassy hoppy note with a hint of malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Same grassy hops not in the aroma. Overall, a drinkable brew, nothing exciting but not offensive.

500 ml can. A decent smell for a Pilsener. Grass and sweet malts over everything. Clear golden color with white head (dizzy head). Actually tastes like beer, a strong very processed one, but beer in the end. It feels like there are hops and malt there somewhere. Too much inclined to the alcohol for my taste, but decent. Would buy again for it’s price.

This is clearly an economy version of Heineken. The aroma is very thin and mostly grassy. The appearance is a good yellow, akin to Carlsberg and the carbonation is light. The body is light with nothing remarkable flavor wise and there is a hint of hop on the finish but not enough to qualify this beer as a pilsener. It is clean and free of flaws but unexceptional and forgettable.

This is basically fake Heineken and I am OK w/ that. It is a pale lager in the same style as a can of carbonated water. There is maybe a little bit of malt or grain but overall this is very mild, medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation. This is fairly well forgettable but it is at least not foul.
