500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts fairly well, but does not leave much lace. Grassy hops are the most prominent aroma, backed by sweet, grainy malt. Uncomplicated grass hops up front give way to white bread and some grainy malt. The finish is quite watery. An uninspiring but fairly inoffensive lager.

Malty brew, some citrussy but to watery. A bit like some heineken with extra water it seems. Not my thing... Refreshing and easy drinking in het sun by 35 degrees...

Considering the climate, both in weather and culture, this beer is made under, it is a wonder it even exist, and is drinkable at that. Pretty much a middle of the road, typical warm weather lager, a bit sweet, but with an ok bitterness, I’m sure it suits the tourists sweltering in the heat just fine.

From a country that invented beer 5000 years ago one could expect something better. Ice cold from the fridge it is drinkable but tastes like a tin can and also very watery. Is there any hop used? I don’t think so. Only advisable if you’re lost in the desert and close to die from thirst.

Nische (714) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013
Golden color with white head. Sweet, water, metal taste. Some hay and grass in aroma and taste. Not too bad but nothing memorable.

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2013
Thanks to Erzengel! Pours a clear medium yellow with barely any head. Smell is sweet light malt and grain. Taste is the same as smell along with artificial sweetener taste - it ends a bit dry with a touch of metallic flavor. Active carbonation which is a bit course with light body. Not a very good beer.

50cl-can. Thanks to Frank!! The beer is pale in taste, watery. A bit malty in the mainpart leaves this beer a pale, malty-watery aftertaste. Not as good as the Stella Lager from the same brewery. Not as round. Probably due to the can. But ok! 7/12/6/6
