30-09-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Budapest, Hungary).
The beer looks rather simple, even for a Pale Lager. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. It is quite a pale beer. It is also crystal clear. On top of the beer some rough, white, fast collapsing foam is formed. After a shirt while only a minimal drape is left. The bottle is very nice though.
The smell of the beer is not the best. It isn't bad, but far from good. I smell some cheap and simple sweet malts, together with some simple touches of fruity hops. it is very simple, and the malts smell somehow cheap.
The taste is the same, but weaker. Simple malty sweets, a hoppy bitterness and some alcohol. It is drinkable, but there are a lot better Pale Lagers on the market. The beer is a bit off balance. It misses some harmony.
The palate is simple. Light body, a bit sticky and high carbonation. The finish is extremely short and simple. Just a touch of bitter hops and alcohol and than nothing. All in all a very simple beer, below average. But a nice bottle. And maybe there are people that do like this kind of beer. Who am I to judge. danlo (3178) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2017

Bier ohne Geschmack aber dafür guter Drinkability. Hauch von undefinierbaren grasigen (?) getreidigen (?) süßen Noten. Bier für den Flaschensammler, nicht für den Gourmet. thegreenrooster (4512) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Pour is a pale yellow with a small head. Aroma is skunk with some sulfur in there. Smells like a fireworks factory. Cool bottle bad beer

crisp, dry and subtle lager that is perfect with asian food (no doubt why they sell it for £££££ in wagamama). overtones of grassy, straw flavours but with the usual eastern restraint in these matters. serve ice cold. keep the bottle and spray it gold! haha jfb (6573) - GERMANY - AUG 20, 2017
(bottle) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of light-struck skunk and corn, with a very light touch of caramel and some straw. flavour is mostly cardboardy pale malts and cheerios, rather empty, with a very light sweetness and a slightly skunky finish. light- to medium-bodied with average carbonation. not so bad if you’re used to lightstruck beers.
