0,5l blik, dit pils smaakt niet verkeerd voor een eigenmerk van een supermarkt. Albert Hein kan hier bijvoorbeeld nog wat van leren. Pluspunt is dat het is gebrouwen volgens reinheitsgebot. In de geur en smaak graan en hooi, redelijke body

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can, 500 ml at home. Bought at a local Spar supermarket. ABV 4.7%. Poired into a lager glass.
Clear body with lots of activity in it. Colour is very pale golden yellow, piss-like. One finger of white,soapy head,with low retention and no lacing left on the glass.
Aroma typical of a cheap lager, lots of malts, hay, grass. Not that bad though.
Taste is not that bad either, light sweetness at first, turns quickly into a moderate bitterness, with a medium long finish. Apart from grass, I can’t tell any other flavour, there is something else but I can’t put my finger on it.
Thin body but not watery, average carbonation. Only a bit of dryness on the palate.
Overall not that bad for a supermarket brand, good for long, mindless drinking evenings I guess.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
The flavour of this pilsener isn’t bad at all, the first taste is fresh, zesty , maybe slightly lemony, but all in al a wellrounded main flavour..it has a very distinct hop aftertaste,BUT there seems to be something gravely wring with the gas production of this particular label.
No other beer produces such nasty amount of burps.
Amste;, Bavaria, Pirlsner Urquell , Grolsch, are similar of taste or quality in one way or another, and do not make one so gassy... That is why after some sampling I will abstain from this very label.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drinking straight from the can cause not at home. Nice level of bitterness at first, tiniest hoppy touch but not too much flavour beyond that. Bit weak but living in China i’d say it’s better than most of the local lagers here, but they’re mostly below 4% and never much bitterness. A beer I’d probably enjoy by the case rather than sip slowly for enjoyment.
