hens (534) - Tallinn, Estonia, - APR 25, 2013
0,5L can. No considerable aroma. Stained watery taste. Sour and little hops coming. Probably not quality. Watery stuff. No way.

Jorn69 (1167) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2014
@ Sandy Bay, Cyprus. Can (330 ml) from local supermarket (€ 0.75). Sweet and malty with notes of grass and straw, light body with a watery texture. The finish is dry and bitter with malty notes.

Douberd (2617) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Took me a while to find it as it says Phoenix Brewery Holland on the label but now I added the barcode so the next generations can find it easier. Can 330 m, bought at a kiosk in Thessaloniki and brought home, in order to pour it in a lager glass and drink it on its proper temperature. The ABV is 5% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, with a small and thin white head, average retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Stale aroma like it has stayed an eternity in the can but it’s only 6 months since made. Lots of malts and some old hay. Quite sweet, again lots of malts, dirty hay, metal notes, a bit of wet cornflakes. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Not the best out there, I wonder who brings this swill in Greece when we are capable of making our own.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Can. Tried in Cyprus September 2013. Quite refreshing in the intensive and wonderful heat of Cyprus. Worth trying again-I mean Cyprus not the beer.

Wanja (673) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2013
0.5 l can at Rambla Bay, Gozo... Standard clear golden color, average head... Drinkable and refreshing hop aroma... Average lager taste... Average ending...

bkurtz (866) - PERU - MAY 28, 2013
Pours your typical pale golden with a smallish, quickly dissipating head. Some cereal in the nose, but overall nothing there. Not offensive is all I can say about this.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2012
330ml tin in Cyprus, polishing off the last few pages of ’Cannery Row’. Dark yellow with a fast-shrinking uneven foam lining the glass. Lemon sherbet, slight thistle, mildly phosphoric aroma. Buttered cracker, almond, raw cabbage and coriander seed impressions on the palate. Relatively clean, un-metallic, unsullied by glue...as compared to the majority of kitten-beating island offerings. Hint of nougat. Actually drinkable: not a quality that can be assumed in any pale lager stumbled upon in the eastern Mediterranean.

visionthing (2988) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2012
Can at Hole in the Wall, Sliema, Malta. Pours golden with a small white head. Another standard industrial pale lager. Sweet and malty as most of them. Hint of cooked vegetable, but fairly decent. Sweet and lightly malty with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but very boring. (2012-09-22)

FatPhil (9646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2012
500ml can (Maxima, Tallinn)
"Why do they all smell the fucking same?!?!" i.e. fairly bland sweet lagery aroma. Taste initially not so good, some metallic and rubbering twists. You get used to them, and don’t notice after 100ml or so. It quenches your thirst, I guess. BLand finish, just some hint of extracty hops. Not good, but just keeping out of the nasty zone.
