good cheapish beer. If drinking more than 'just a couple' then this could be worthwhile.

kamanova_boy (161) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2017
On tap at Mood for Food, Bucharest. Low white head, corn and malt in aroma, low on bitterness, uneventful but ok lager, best to drink along with food.

From a 341ml bottle. Skunk, hops and corn. Pretty commercial, boring but still drinkable.

Grisza77 (710) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 18, 2017
Słomkowe, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, ktra pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat i smak nikły, lekko słodowy. Goryczka niska. Oglnie typowy koncerniak bez smaku, aromatu i goryczki, ale też bez wad, pijalny niczym woda gazowana.

Franckg (1540) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
Bouteille. Robe jaune translucide et surmonte dun lger col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Armes de mas, feuille de laurier, moufette, levures basses, miel. En bouche, malt cre, houblons herbacs, pain mouill, moufette emptre dans miel. Texture huileuse et corps mince moyen. Une bonne lager commerciale.

had to try it, a classic beer that is sadly not as savorous as the small crafts. Too many good beers, so little time.

radassace (214) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2017
440ml can. Has to be from a can and not a skunky green bottle ( which I would rate 2.5). Pours a light golden amber with a small lasting white head. Nose is light bready malt, lemon, yeasty and a whiff of hops. Medium carbonation, bready, cereal grain and lemon in the taste. Slight hop tickle on the finish. This is one of the better Macro Lagers out there. Yeah its by no means brilliant but drinks like a semi-decent Pilsner.

Bottle. Head does not stay long, disappears without any trace. Aroma is empty, with malt, corn, skunky. Slight bitterness. Terribly boring.

Wypite jakiś czas temu, ocena w ramach uzupełnienia profilu. Najciekawsza w tym piwie jest niestety butelka.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Pale yellow. Small head. Aroma is weak. Grainy and skunky. Taste is bready, grainy, a little bit of hops and some malts. Almost no bitterness and a dry, bready aftertaste. Strong carbonation. Gets its job done though when consumed ice cold in the summer heat of a Dutch Heavy Metal Open Air...

330 ml (11.2 oz) bottle. The brewery has changed from the 12 oz bottle for the US market to the international 330 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden color with a white head and lively carbonation. The packaging says "premium quality two hop recipe". These days, that does not mean much, but it got my attention. The aroma is of barley malt and quite clean. The flavor is a lot fuller than the Grolsch that I remember with a much thicker and better mouthfeel. The hop bitterness has also been increased, but the thing that stands out the most is that I am not picking up on those characteristic Dutch esters which you used to get in Grolsch and still get in Heineken. This is a much better version of the beer and worth retasting if you have not had one in some time. The brewerys website calls this "Premium Pilsner" although the label on the bottle still reads "Premium Lager". A very nice commercial Pils which in my opinion is far better than most across the border in Germany which have original gravities which are so low that you no longer get any body/mouthfeel from them. This Grolsch "feels" more like a Pilsner Urquell without the burnt caramel flavor.
