Yet another "international lager" with absolutely no personality, or taste for that matgter. Watery, pale with diminishing head. The aroma there is contains hints of cardboard and...well overcooked veggies.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 "The beer is light golden in colour with a nice amount of foam on top just after pouring it into the glass. The taste is standard lager with some sweetness and barely any bitterness. It has a watery aftertaste and ends up kind of boring. Not bad though all things considered." - beersoftheworldproject.wordpress.com

Sehr ordentliches Lager mit typischem Mix aus Wasser und überraschend viel Getreidearomen. So hat dieses Lager sogar fast richtig Geschmack und eine gute Trinkbarkeit.

Pours clear pale gold with a white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste is corn, grains, metallic notes.

Zlotta (4142) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2017
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle from 'Getr�nketempel', bottled in June 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly grassy and a little skunky aroma of grains and some straw. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, grassy taste of grains and straw, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly grassy and a little metallic finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay.

This is a commercial beer that unfortunately comes nowhere close to micro brewery levels and should not rated alongside them

Bottle @ THT. Weird country lager tick checklist. Typical lager look, clear golden, firm white head on top. Aroma of cardboard, skunk and grassy hops. Flavor is a bit skunked, light sweet and nothing new here. Just that...

2.8
jjsint (3604) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle from a corner shop in Highfields, Leicester. Golden yellow, clear with a bit of white head. Lemon aroma without the normal cardboardy hit in a macro lager. Bittersweet taste with a sour tang and more dryness near the finish. Reminds me of what I remember Budweiser tasting like: boring but surprisingly not terrible.
