Large 660ml bottle, brown

The first time I tried this I was a bit drunk, the second it was 8 months out of date, but this review is based on several bottles after that.

The beer pours with a light amber colour, smelling of hops and malt.

The taste is of a more complex lager, with more taste than that of becks or heiniken.

Overall, a pleasant lager

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Bottle: very ordinary 330mL macro bottle. Doesn't inspire confidence.

Appearance: fairly clear straw colour. 1.5 finger frothy head with limited lacing.

Aroma: touch of wheat and malt. Possibly something floral, but certainly very sedate.

Taste: quite sweet at first. Malts are up-front, backed up by some bitter hop flavours.

Aftertaste: similar, with added floral hops (very light though).

Mouth feel: light body, medium-to-high carbonation. So basically, a lager.

Overall: lager wheat and metallic lagery-ness, not a bad beer really. If you want a standard lager, this is one. Reasonable price, reasonable beer. Definitely an option if you are after a cheap and plentiful sessional beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Attractive bottle pours an unattractive beer. Golden clear color with short-lasting head and a lot of pearling (which afterwards turns to result in seriously unpleasant bloating feel).
Smell is correct: hops, yeast and barley - all in faint amounts.
Tastes dull. Nothing to point out, and nothing to heavily complain of. Leaves sparky and watery aftertaste.
Gave me a bloat feeling throughout whole night. Not satisfying at all.
