Pours with a two-fingered white head that hang around and leaves a good lace. A light golden color. Nose is non-existant as if stale (it isn't) but the carbonation is quite good. Starts different - sweet but hoppy and has a crisp finish. Light bodied. $1.99 for 500ml. There is nothing on the bottle about this being light.

This was refreshing to say the least. At the worst something to wash out the palate between heavier beers. Very light, but very thirst quenching.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Reasonable but thin, light yellow and watery, but with some elements of a good pils; smooth yet biting, more malt needed.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2003
The prototypical lager pour, a translucent gold, bright white head that is impressive in size, frothy in texture and a nice sheet of lace is left after the head erodes. Nose is the quintessential lager, all malt, crisp and clean and a tad sweet with the start malt laden, somewhat sweet, the top middling in its feel. Finish is moderately carbonated, the hops present but understated, dry and long lasting aftertaste, an average lager, nothing that “Trips My Trigger”.

For those out there that live to trash American light beers, you should try this first. Most American light beers are phenomenal compared to this beer. Its pale, bland, thin... bad, just plain bad.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 7, 2003
Useless and forgettable lager: yellowish color, fast dying head, thin body, sweetish palate... The beer for those who doesn't like beer.

Naother meaningless international standard lager. Could be useful in a desperate situation...

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Pale golden. Sour aroma. Some cereal flavor here but nevertheless a meaningless standard lager.

robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Clean tasting beer. Thick white head. Not much in the way of hoppiness to it. Very slight aftertaste reminicent of Budweiser or Miller. Nice straw color. Overall a refreshing beer.

Dorwart (2590) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Big thick head that is slightly creamy. Little carbonation but good lacing down the glass. Aroma has a slight wheat/yeast overtone. Just malt otherwise. Color is a light/pale gold. Flavor is pretty watered down but still not that bad. Mainly malts. Finish is smooth and crisp with very little aftertaste and a minimal hop bitterness. Much better than the typical american "lite" beers.
