2.4/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

I got this beer from a colleague, who bought it in Germany for an introduction price of 8 euro cents... I immediately noticed the beautiful bright yellow color in the bottle. Couldn't wait to see it in my glass. I poured the beer into my Mort Subite glass. The beer pours a bright clear yellow color with an one finger thick bright white head, that disappeared fast.

Smell: Very weak. Some fruits (lemon?), wheat, cabbage, dry grass and hints of burnt paper

Taste: Slightly sour-bitter, some malts, again hints of wheat, with a dry, very short watery finish with some wheat again.

Mouthfeel: thin and watery (or slim-bodied, which sounds more positive), medium-low carbonation (too low for the style). Very easy to drink

Overall, very easy to drink beer. Nothing special. Compares best to a fresh, light pilsner with some hints of fruits and wheat. Nice to drink several on a hot summer day, but so incredibly boring...

Got this beer from the same colleague as rvdoorn and as mentioned he bought it for 8 cents per bottle...

A: Bright yellow with a medium head that didn't last too long.

S: A hay/grass smell already when I opened the bottle. Lemon is there as well and some hops.

T: Is this a alcohol free beer??? Let's check.. ok, it isn't. Very close to tap water. This beer tastes like a Heineken diluted 1:1 with water, maybe even more...

M: Low carbonation and fast oxidation.

D: Even if they give it away for free: NO WAY!!!
