2.3/5  rDev -31.1%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

500ml bottle into Guinness pint glass in North Berlin, Germany. Bottle acquired in REWE stores, Berlin. Reviewed live.

A: Half finger thin embarrassingly bad head. No cream. Abysmal retention - maybe six seconds? Transparent clear yellow head. Bleh. Very unappealing.

Sm: Cream and some pleasant barley. A pretty light scent. It's difficult to detect individual notes with me broken nose.

T: Cream and barley. That's it. Even the finish is uninspired and pretty crap. I wanted a better beer. It's quite simple and brewed without care for anything besides profit margins. A sadly disappointing beer. Unbalanced and garbage.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but there is a sharp coarseness to tame the smoothness that feels artificial, unwelcome, and contradictory to the style. Very poorly executed.

Dr: Why did I buy this? The ABV isn't high enough for the beer to even be considered a crap beer. It's just downright not worth it. The price is especially low, but still doesn't justify the poor quality. This is one for ye lads to avoid like the fecking hiv. (Too far?)

2.95/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A:
Pours crystal clear watery straw color with a surprisingly big white head that eventually settles to a fat film and then a middling one. Decent retention; barely any lacing.

S:
Funky (in the sense of 'weird') and grassy. Oats, green apple, grass. Meh.

T:
Level, smooth drinking. Cereals, stanky European hops, bit of acetaldehyde (I feel), 'mineraliness'.

M:
Light bodied with ample carbonation and a quick dry finish. Very easy drinking. Fine for what it is.

O:
Okay 'cheap' beer.
Drinks easy and quenches your thirst. It is by no means anything special, pretty, or delicious, but it is good after working in the sun. Not the best, mot the worst. Your best option is probably getting it real cold and drinking it from the can with a coozy if you've got one.

Poured into a pilsner a clear dull light to medium golden with a pretty well defined white head that left a few broken chunks of lace as it settled pretty quickly.Sweeter aromas with a mild crispness,more like a sweet cereal aroma more than anything.The sweet cereal grain notes are what you get mainly on the palate with just a light drying leafy hop note in the finish.Eh, pretty average but it goes well with food and is pretty drinkable in an average kind of way.

This beer is amazing in its ability to be neither great, nor bad. It's middle of the road, to the extreme. Imagine German Bud Light. Except with more mild/bitter hops, maybe saaz? Better dollar for dollar than BMC. apparently abv is 4.9, but seems lower as I just finished a sixxer and am not too buzzed.
