shoestring (436) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Bready aroma. Esters and cheap sweets like cola cubes on nose. Not the worst when ice cold. From small bottle from mixed box. Many memories of this from youth and can't believe if not rated it. Serve cold.

Beer that tastes of fucking beer, it doesn't taste of pancakes, maple caramel or honey. It tastes of fucking beer and it's good at doing that.

TavernRogue (36) - Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Can from 4-pack. Purchased at local shop. After drinking all the craft beer in this hot as hell weather, I had to resort to heading down to my local. It has some real ales (unfortunately all the Brewdog has discontinued) but they aren’t refrigerated anymore. My usual go-to’s in this sort of level of stifling heat are Becks and San Miguel (nothing like it tastes in Spain but oh well) but unfortunately neither of those were in the fridge! Holster for a mass-produced lager is actually not bad. It’s by no means a Pilsener but it does have that placebo of being back in Germany as it has quite a distinct taste compared to the Carlings and Heinekens of this world. Nothing to cry home about, though. So in summary, if the weather is really hot and you’ve run out of beer, if no craft beer is available this will at least cool you down.

Smells of gas, moderately sweet lager with not a lot to write home about. Not as bad as some but never a drink of choice.

2.5
jjsint (3606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
275ml bottle from the Med, Cambridge. Light yellow with a little white head. Ammonia and lemon on the aroma with a fair bit of grain. There’s an off saccharin taste at first, followed by a genuinely tasty citrus flavour, then more of the saccharin. Long gluey finish. Sickly. Below average.

2.3
BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Can, pours golden with an amber tint, light sweetcorn and dry grass nose, soft bitterness over sweet malt, slightly watery texture, not actually *bad*, just rather meh - and certainly totally unworthy of being labelled Pils.

1.8
peponi (2103) - Strzelce Wielkie, POLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Aroma: corn, malty and herbs. Appearance: clear golden color and white head. Taste: very low bitterness, thin malty backbone, DMS, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Really poor pils.
