4.8%, brewed by Oettinger in Gotha
Ooh... this was one of the first beers I’ve had during the very beginning of my ticker faze, in Spain. Well... we got a Lidl here recently, and I got to try it again, and write a better review. It’s pretty much exactly as I wrote... poured a nice yellow going gold colour, with a medium sized white heap of bubbles that disappeared quickly. Very fizzy, but it calms down soon enough. Smells remarkably nice... a fresh malty smell. The taste is very watery, dull, not all that interesting, maybe hoppy, a touch lemony, but not pleasant... The fact that it’s watery is a boon actually... if it had a more pronounced taste, it’d rate even lower. Thankfully no aftertaste. Below average industrial lager. +1 aroma, -1 palate.... and I’m being quite generous.
An underaverage, boring pils, watery and bland. Seen it only in 0.33 cans. That was too much, I bought two, and both survived almost untouched the night before we left Spain. That, and half of a bottle of some Spanish n/a someone bought by accident.
Canned. Yellow golden, big white head. Bittersweet aroma (in a horrible way). Malty taste with hops in the finish. Wellbalanced, but could do with more carbonation. gunnfryd (15484) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2006
Can. Golden colour with a white head. Light malty aroma. Light malt flavour with a watery finish. NosirIwont (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2006
Plastic bottle. 5.2%. Pours pale yellow-golden with a small, fast-disappearing white head. Sourish hoppy, cereal aroma. Sweetish cereal flavour. Dryish, bitter finish. 06-10-06. OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2006
Can. Frothy short-lasting white head. Pale yellow/golden color. Grainy aroma with a touch of grassy hops. Neutral, sweet-flavored taste. Sourish finish. Forgettable.

Bought from Lidl in a can. Pretty bog standard stuff. Weak in every area. Weak aroma, weak taste and absolutely no chance of me ever buying it again. Probably not as bad as Fosters/Carling but it just has a nastiness to the flavour that I just can’t put my finger on. Stefano (2046) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2007
Golden colour with a white head. Light malty aroma. Weak metallic hoppy taste, and an unpleasant bitter yet sour astringency in the finish. lithilorn (291) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - FEB 7, 2008

50cl can from Lidl. Pale straw with a billowing white head; grassy, floral aroma; soapy body with a lttile hoppy bitterness; cardboard finish. Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - JUL 20, 2008
Clear golden colour with a white head. Light malty aroma. The flavour is a bit malty with bitter aftertaste. Watery, thin-bodied beer.
