Green bottle, obviously if you don’t want it so smell and taste like donkey piss get it fresh, even then it sucks pretty hard.

Dec. '16. A 0.5 l bottle, thanks Marko for sharing! It poured a pale yellow body with medium sized head. Wet hay - grainy and dusty aroma. Flavor was pretty light, neutral, if I have to choose I'd say sourish to sweetish honey to egg grainy, with fine herbal note. Medium body. Finished long, dusty and even earthy herbal, where that hoppy note saved it from a disaster and made it actually quite fine for what it is.

Serin koku. Çok rahatsız etmeyen malt tadı. Soğuk içildiğinde tadı güzel oluyor. Alkol tadı alınıyor.

Had an apha bottle beer at many different occassions in Greece. Aroma of malt and weak hoppy notes and flavour mainly bitter. Medium carbonation. Was a much better beer before Heineken bought this greek alpha brewery... ;-)

heman (1267) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 21, 2017
Aromat i smak totalnie nijaki, zbliżony do wody. Uboga słodowość, wyskie wysycenie, goryczka niska.

Cybuch (622) - Muszyna, POLAND - SEP 19, 2017
W aromacie nic się nie dzieje, lekko owocowy. Barwa złota, klarowne, piany brak, kiepsko nalene z kega. W smaku wodniste, słodowe, wysoko wysycone. Wytrawne. Przypomina mi Tyskie. Goryczki brak. Typowy eurolager.
