A very nice lager with a defined but balanced taste.
This was a ’passage of rites’ drink and was much more popular when I was a teenager.
It’s a shame it doesn’t seem to be so popular in the UK now.
On the plus side this also keeps the price down.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle bought at an international food store in Eastbourne, Seaside Road ( luckily it was available there as a single and not as a fourpack like at Tesco’’s). Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of mild hops, grains, bread, grass, citrus and basement. Boring and unexciting finish. Refreshing and drinkable though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought in a shop in Eastbourne and shared with McTapps. Compared with the german Holsten this one is quite dull and sweetish missing that classic bitter Holstern aftertaste. Some corn mixed up with a bit of malt and easy going finish. Not bad at all.

Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, light corn, and faint spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from can. Clean gold with thin white head. Aroma is cheap. Lots of hay and coin jar. Mild carbonation. Taste is cardboard (but the nicer type) and general malt. If you focus, you can make out some hops. Ever so slightly bitter. Drinkable.

I have drank this from both bottle and tin over the years. It is fizzy and has a coiny sweetness with a bit of malt and graassy hop in there. Not particularly nice but I can drink it!

440ml can from Scotmid. Pours clear yellow with a decent enough white head. Aromas of corn, cereal, dusty. Taste has an unpleasant industrial mouth-coating astringency. Watery and thin. Pretty bad.
