330ml bottle

Pours with a thin yellow body, little head, little retention and a slight lacing on the glass

Smell, malty, slight skunky finish on it also

Taste, dry and quite crisp, a little sickening though, pretty bland

A pretty dull euro lager overall it seems (274 characters)

Had the non lite version out in Amsterdam. Pours a light amber with amazing clarity, almost no head retention to it. Aroma was spritzy carbonation.

Taste, light, easy to drink, slight Saaz hop feel to it, not discernably different than the light version we get in the states. Uplifting, refreshing, just enough caramel to it. Overall, pricy, but one of the more enjoyable beers in the style. Have no idea why it isn't available in the states. Nothing groundbreaking, but sometimes we're in the mood for an easy drinking, lightly hopped beer. (542 characters)

I had this beer on 100 cl presentation...
It pours a pale yellow beer with a somehow good white head, that lasts a little bit and forms good lacing.
Smell is like hoppy with some bread.
The taste is bready, with a refreshing aftertaste... bitter and hoppy.

Not a big fan of pale lagers, but i guess under a mexican beach sun... you can drink a lot of this beer...
Cheers! (372 characters)

Pours with a reddish tinge to its yellow. A little white head. Taste is corny, a tad of carmel. Mostly astringent to me, very thin mouthfeel, and a couple of ounces is too much.Very light carbonation. Smell is neutral.Thanks for bringing Mr. Russev.Not too good. (262 characters)
