Bought under the name of Krait Prestige champagne lager at a decently hefty price. Tasted like over carbonated miller to me. Just a sad, sad beer.

Light clear gold color with frothy white foam. Aromas, generaly malty with notes of sweetcorn, paper, carboard and ight lemon. Although romas are very weak. Palate, medium body with thin-ish texture and high carbonation leaving boozy finish. Taste, is sweet and alcoholic of light malt, with tones of sweetcorn, paper and light grass. Overall, it is okay, not amazing.

From Carrefour Camas. In Teku glass. Zapping HD films (Vida de Adele, Invencion Hugo, Norte y Sur) Better than average pilsner. Neutral in nose. Medium carbonation and body. Herbal balanced taste. Alcohol not much bothering. Big head that dissipates quickly

Strut1066 (8) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016 does not count
Pale yellow, hazy, quite gassy which makes the head not last long. Grass and hops on the bouquet , initially sweet on the palate but follows with a nice tangy bite to it and a nice mouthfeel,similar to some Belgians or German helles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 750ml. Slomiany kolor z biala obfita kremowa piana. Zapach zdominowany przez chmiel cytrusy i lekko ryzowy finisz. Smak polslodki chmielowy ale z lekko wyczuwalnymi drozdzami.Nie jest zle .orzezwiajace. lecz rozczarowuje brakiem glebi zapachu i smaku.

Pinball (11939) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2015
75 cl bottle from palma clear yellow small. White head. Very mild aroma. Lager. Flavor is boozy malts with some yellow fruits and some hops. Carbonation is agressive . Tastes like a Belgian blonde pilsner if that existed.

Pours a clear glden color, topped with an avergae sized white head, quickly settling. Aroma is malty, a bit grassy with wet paper notes (though not too strong). Taste is sweet, malty, some presence of alcohol can be felt, mild bitterness. Not unpleasant, though, to be fair, nothing extra.

750ml. Drank from a Tulip. I would like to marry this with a Vindaloo or a very hot Phaal curry - either one would be a palate fuck I am speculating . This strong Cobra equivalent (to the usual Cobra lager drank with curry @ most UK Indian restaurants ) is tight ! There is nothing flashy here - a boozy ,malty and easy to chug honest hight boot Lager. It is cleaner than some typical strong potent lagers . A bit of bready notes , toffee , maybe floral red apple . This ain’t that bad you snobs.

Towey1989 (1891) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear straw colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lots of grassy hops, lemon, some wheat, slight yeast, cereal and sweet grain. Taste of sweet grain, cereal, some lemon, a hint of grapefruit, wheat and grassy hops. Light bodied and a fizzy carbonation. A dry, chalky finish with subtle grassy hop bitterness. Slightly more flavourful than a standard lager but the finish and aftertaste aren’t nice. Taste of chalk and cardboard on the palate too. Not worth the Ł3.99.
