Along with Carlsberg and Budweiser, this is one of the worlds most famous and sold pilsner/lagers. Its the best out of the three, and the most clean tasting, reminiscent of northern german pilsener. Id probably still go for Tuborg Green instead, but its a decent drink and a good thirsquencher on a summer day. Draught version preferable. Fun note: When me and my friends started drinking beer at age 14 (yeah, that IS the norm in Denmark) or so, we all thought this was the greatest drink in the world, and thought it was all exotic. Turned out we were just ignorant

Barwa jasno zlota, klarowna, piana niewielka, szybko opada, na powierzchni pozostaje noewielki pier?cie?, zapach czuc na odleglosc, intensywny, chyba slodowy, w smaku slodycz, slod chyba jakis, w skladzie "ekstrakt z chmielu".

La bire de base, encore plus nulle quune kro... Pas de nez, un gout a peine malt et acidul, aucune amertume, ininterressante.... juste pour boire

Pershing (548) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Clear gold with a fair amount of carbonation. Grainy aroma with some hay. Light body with a decent hop balance of the malt. Not much here, but then again a pale lager doesnt have much anyway. This was the beer to drink back in the mid 80s in the states. Visited Pairs in 89 and this was all I saw on the sidewalk cafes. Finishes slightly dry. Not bad to have during a Texas summer.

Color dorado claro. Espuma blanca igualada. Aroma - cereales.Sabor-muy suave, aguado,con una nota de amargor, algo dulce.Bien equilibrado todo, pero no tiene cuerpo.Todo estandar. Tomar muuuy fria.

Lager industrial que entra bien para el calor, bastante refrescante, pero no es ms que eso. Color pajizo plido, espuma de poca retencin. Carbinatacion media. En cuanto al sabor, cereales ausentes, apenas un toque de Malta y seguramente un poco de maz. Lo que la hace perder mucho sabor, y parecer casi aguada.

Pils gedronken bij Escape Tales, samen met Roelzie1986. Het is een pilsner, niet bijzonder, beetje een ijzerachtige nasmaak.

Ratebeer-ed this for fun and it is here! 4000 ratings and a score of 4. Still selling millions says a lot about how the world works... Tastes watery.. Maybe good if you want to drink lots of bottles under the 40C sun with something close to water

geolgau (62) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAR 4, 2017
On can, in Romania. Smells like wet stale hay, pale malts and not much more. Boring taste, cornish and grainy. Will quench your thirst on a hot summers day.

Acaro (69) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2017
Aroma: Some soft hay notes. Appearance: Light toasted amber color with clear liquid and a minimal white head. Taste: Bitter Palate: Light body with oily tesxture and an average carbonation. Bitter deep long finish. Overall: Not a great beer but I have been told that it depends A LOT the country where you have it, so keep in mind that my opinnion is for Spain.

Paid $2 for a 24floz can with "BBD Dec-2017" stamped on the bottom. Heres to mediocrity! It isnt a bad thing, since Heineken in a can (emphasis in a can) is consistently an okay beer. You get golden straw lager with that characteristic wet hay aroma. Euro mass produced lager with a bit more flavor than low calorie beers, but with a similar poundem back character. Must be had cold, otherwise its grainy flavor becomes putrid.
