Smooth is right. So low alcohol, can't taste the beer in here. Creamy, yet goes down easy. A real thirst quencher ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

midovark (802) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2017
Can. Pours hazy brown with thin but long lasting head. It has the usual biscuity bitter notes in aroma and taste but is painfully, terribly watery and thin. Meh.

T: malt, caramel, nice grassy/floral bitterness, roasted tones, touch of dark bread, medium body, medium carbonation, not bad for me as well, 0,5l can from Farsons Direct shop in Malta.

Banksiz (127) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Light malty nose, with light piney notes from the hops. No yeast or fruity notes. Medium light body, some sweetness, moderate bitterness. No real noble hop flavor. Bitter finish with no harshness. Pleasant everyday ale but nothing special. Tastes a bit thin. Unfiltered draught product might be better if available.

If this is the only "beer" on the bar, then it will have to be cider.
