3.25/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: golden yellow, thin white head with average carbonation.

Smell is average for lager,on hops and grains,weak smell.

Taste is surprisingly good,bit watery,with low bitterness,but very drinkable.

Didn't expect much from this beer,but it goes very easy,good to drink it when it's sunny outside.

Brought a can of this home from a trip to Budapest...the beer poured a clear yellow with initially foaming head that is dissipating quickly. The head is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is slightly acidic with grassy notes. The taste carries some tin twang with slight bready hints. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall its kind of a standard euro trash beer.

2.81/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Golden colour, foamy head which very quickly dissipates, no lacing. Aroma is malty with slight caramel feel and mild hops in the background.

Taste is grassy bittery, weak hints of grapefruit, but feels flat and watery. No aftertaste at all.

There is not much of carbonation, the beer is too thin and light, it could go very good with food, but is not worth drinking alone.

The colour is straw yellow; the large white compact foam slowly sinks down to a three finger high head while making a fizzing sound. There is some lacing.

The smell is quite fresh and malty with citric bitter notes and a hint of green apples.

The taste is not the heaviest that I have come across… The malt got some sweetness and hints of white loaf. The bitterness is medium strong, as the body. The hops are rather anonymous and a bit chemical. The aftertaste got a quickly passing citric-bitter note; it is replaced by a neutral bread-like flavour.

The carbonation is a little bit milder than the average Eurolager; small refreshing bubbles.

A very typical Hungarian lager: Neutral, not too bitter or carbonated, making it highly gulpable and a perfect companion to a glass of Unikum bitter dram and a plate of pickled paprika.

Some might label this one as an Czech Pils, but I do not: It is not bitter nor clean enough.
