The only good thing I can say about this is that it was marginally better than the last beer. Even so, much like the Cantina, 80% of it went straight down the drain. Another country tick, there is really no good reason to choose this. Even the macros give you more bang for your buck.

Aroma / Appearance - This body has some life but the result looks like fizzy ginger ale instead of beer. A stark white head is far too excitable for the quality of the beer beneath. Wet leaves, grain, and soured lemons are as bland as it gets. Imagine any Eastern European pale lager and it could fit the bill.

Flavor / Palate - Lemon and grain are as bland and forgettable as it comes. Just a second after taking a sip it fades away. There aren’t any glaring flaws (like skunk, popcorn, or other off flavors). There is just nothing. This is like a black hole of good taste in the way it turns every sip into mediocrity.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle (country tick). Pours with a pale yellow body with hardly any white head (vanishes quick). Aromas of wet and slightly burnt dog hair. Grainy, sweet adjunct, uric acid. Even a slight ester. All sorts of mistakes. Flavors are sweet, rotten fruit, corn, and then the magically fade to some oxidized paper and nothingness. Light metal as well. Very thin with medium to low carbonation. Characterless.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Niksicko Pivo I have no idea if this is the proper spelling for this, but what the hell. Pours golden as opposed to straw with a deeper yellow. Two fingered white head that went away immediately. Strong odor of rice adjunct, with a pale German like yeast note. Bananas gone bad? Flavor is super thin and watery with almost no aftertaste to speak of. A little bid of cardboard? This is not really beer is it? I think I got duped into purchasing seltzer with yellow food coloring. Possibly the most boring and least offensive beer I have ever had.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Straw-golden with a frothy and quite durable head. Sourish malty aroma. Watery taste, a bit malty, less hoppy, low on bitterness but quite pleasant.

Koelschtrinker (16417) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Herber und etwas unpassend hopfiger Antrunk der etwas beißend wirkt. Herber Cornflakes-Mittelteil, mild, ebenso im Abgang wobei dieser zusätzlich wässrig wirkt. Zum Ende plörriger. Zum runterspülen von schlechter Nahrung gerade noch geeignet. Test vom 14.8.2008, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 6,7,6,4,8,5 - 5,55

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Gold with chill haze and a filmy, bleached-white head. Beery nose with a hint of butter; possibly diacetyl, but it faded fast. Very mild carbonation; watery mouthfeel; creamed up slightly as it warmed. Fruity (apples, pears and white grapes) and sweet (sugar water and aspartame). Mild bitterness merged with a thin smoky edge. Nip of white wine-like alcohol. Stale aftertaste. Overall, it had some hints of decency, but for the most part I found it to be vapid and lifeless.

Pretty decent lager, well hopped, not much malt evident to balance it but drinkable and pleasant.

500ml can from Serbia. Now it ’s only 5% alcohol and 11,4% extract! Nice pils (hoppy, malty) but a little watery, quick-drinking, light bodied. Foam is also OK, long lasting. Taste is nut and cheese a bit for me.
