Eurolager thatís best when fresh. When you can find it on tap itís freaking good.

Nothing special about this one. Had it in the states and in Europe. Tasted watery and metallic both times. Aroma is incredibly skunky.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pale amber with a medium-thick white head with large bubbles that fade quickly. Smellys barely skunky. Has a very dry and earthy taste at first. Slightly rotten hops even?! It has an overlying citrusy taste as well. The palate is to my disliking, as it dries my tounge out considerably. Not a "Premium" lager, in my opinion.

Slightly bland in terms of flavour for someone who is determined to find their perfect beer. But this lager does no harm if you arenít paying too much attention. I have tried and trusted this beer to get me through hours of watching cricket in the sun and it has never let me down. Would I trust it to impress if I served it with a meal? No. This beer has a time and a place.

Very pale yellow, sweet sour aroma (not in a good way). Flavor much of the same. Watery thin body. Not good at all. Even a PBR would be better than this sutff.

Should have known from the green bottle what was in store. Much lighter than I anticipated, a bit bitter, but not overly, Would I buy again? Probably not, but Iíve had much worse.

This had a real skunky smell. Quite terrible actually. Flavour was quite bland with a touch of sweet malt if anything. Light to medium bodied, but in saying that if it was any stronger it would probably have me gagging. Quite gassy too. I knew the French werenít good at anything...

Tried this in a smoky, crowded pub and could not distinguish it from Fosters. There is a difference, I know, but.....

A nice fresh hop aroma of good quality hops. A golden yellow lager, not complex, but smooth, not really sweet, more a dry/roast character. I like the hops, very crisp and refeshing but smooth. No bad aftertaste. Not as thin as some pils.
