UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 It was very light, too lager, but it has a nice flavor. Good in a hot day. Light and clear, very nice coloured.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Picked this beauty up at a friends house. Skunk aromas pours out of the bottle as quickly as the liquid into the glass. Light malt barely sneaks by the skunk. I’ve smelled skunkier beers so it can get worse. Therefore I won’t give it a 1 in aroma. Pours a pale yellow with a white head that has some decent retention. Relatively inoffensive taste because it virtually has none except for a light sweet Euro-lager flavor in the finish. Not a lot of carbonation. Very watery. If not the most flavorless beer I’ve ever had, very close.

A mid golden lager that has enough traces of malt and hops to keep you interested. Same brewer as the shite Bavaria Premium/Pilsner. Marginally better than that, but only just. If it was 40degress outside and this is all I had to drink, I’d put up with it. My sample was in Australia, and came in a narrow 330ml green bottle.

Not much better than its American counterparts. Same nasty chemical taste. Yuk.

At $8 a 12 pack, it’s hard to beat this deal. I only drank from the bottle, but the flavor was crisp, slightly bitter. Definitely better when cold.

Golden color, middle head. Hoppy bitter aroma. Bitter flat taste. Boring...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Tasted from the bottle, this wasn’t as bad as many of the reviews below suggest, and I am not that much of a Euro’ lager fan. Aroma was hoppy, grassy and a little sour, with a little bit of sweet malt. The aroma, though, faded quickly. In a Pils’ glass, the head formed, short and foamy, but died back quickly to leave a little lace down the glass. In the mouth, the beer was slightly gummy and soapy, leafy, with only a tad of sweetness. Light bodied and floral in the back, followed by a short, lightly bitter aftertaste. Minimal malt flavours, though, make this a little one dimensional, and mar what could otherwise be a decent lager.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Maybe it was a bad batch but mine had an industrial chemical taste. The bad bitterness was not friendly at all and that’s about it for flavor, save a light sweetness. The only positive for this beer is that it had a nice hop smell.

12 oz bottle. Really unsure as to whether this is as bad or worse than Heineken. They are both Hollish macro type beers. Meager offering.
