This is a sleeper . . . really nice on the palate and not too watery for a macro brew. Has some nice mild sweetness to it - low-average carbonation - goes down smooth and easy. Nice session beer and nice to have a 12p on hand at all times. Way better than most macro beers but its not a big flavor or aroma bomb. Better than most in the inexpensive lager cat. Worth the price

Iznogud (1980) - CROATIA - MAY 22, 2016
Canned from some off license in London. Yellow, white head. Bit stinky. Sweet, malty, corny. Watery, light bodied. Basically all comes down to the fact that two of us were barely able to drink half of can. This stuff is very bad.

Rask0lnikov (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 21, 2016
Golden yellow colour. Medium head. Some sweetness, medal, malts, hints of honey in the aroma. Slight synthetic grassiness, sweetness, hints of caramel. Watery in the middle. Slight bitterness in the end. Drinkable but not a good beer.

First of all, to be honest.. This is a country tick beer. Pours clear light golden with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma; Artificial floral notes, grass and some malt. Taste; The same as the aroma with artificial floral notes, some grass and malt. But most of all watery like a ocean.

nybol (1130) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Med bange anelser sætter jeg munden til glasset. Forventer meget i retningen af de andre "tynde" øl fra mexico, japan osv. Den har god noget mere smag, lidt over i noget sødlig malt. Men dog ikke det store sus.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur dorée claire, mousse très éphémère, niveau du goût : pas exceptionnel, dans les standards des bières du même style, reste néanmoins très rafraichissante

DraftDodger (886) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Copenhagen 16/4 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Classic design with the red diagonal stripe on white background printed directly on the bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. The head disappears immediately. Not much of an aroma. A little malty sweetness and a little sourness. Quite strong prickly carbonation and watery palate. Not much taste either. A little sweetness, little sourness and a little saltiness. Almost no aftertaste. Quite bland to be honest. But I suspect that it is just what the doctor ordered if you are in a tropical climate. And the bottle is a little design masterpiece in itself.

From the bottle. It’s clean, crisp, dull, and pretty much what a pale lager should be. The malt taste is actually kinda good. No major nasty tastes or flaws, which is about as good as it gets for mass produced lager.

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
Bottlette, bb Oct 2016 (BL sampler 1). Green-inflected gold. Nose of cooked corn, rice doused with lemon. Some almond in flavour, lemonade garnished with a spritz of lemon peel. Gentle, not to say mild carbonmation. Slightly sticky with cooked banana and corn syurp slickness, yet manages to remain refreshing like lemonade. Love that stubby bottle.
