3.43/5 rDev +15.1%
Pours with a light yellow body, creamy white head, nice retention and lots of lacing
Smell, quite fresh, no skunky aromas, herby, a nice sweetness coming off
Taste, dry and crisp, nice level of hop bitterness, slight sweetness, quite well balanced
This really suprised me, a cheap can of no name pils turned out to be a fairly decent session beer in disguise

2.13/5 rDev -28.5%
500 ml can, bought at LIDL Norway. ABV here is 4.7%, to comply with our 4.75% upper limit for beers sold in grocery stores. Pale golden colour, fluffy large to moderate head, collapsing. Moderate aromatic hops with some slight sweet and flowery notes, hints of hay. Low carbonation, thin and watery mouthfeel. Onedimensional flavour where a not very pleasant bitterness of inferior hops dominate. Not good.

N.B.: This is the version sold by Lidl in Sweden; the abv is 3.5%.
The colour is clear yellow; the two-finger thick foam is compact and white.
The mild small consists of some rather anonymous malt and hops with a shade of bitterness.
The carbonation is quite strong, but not sharp. OK.
The taste got a distinct tone of bread (rye bread?) and a subtle sweet tone. The tight, fresh bitterness develops into a balanced aftertaste, surprisingly long with that touch of rye bread.
A good low-budget beer.

3.33/5 rDev +11.7%
Also bought from Lidl, this time in darkest Glasgow.
Standard uninspiring straw colour and a rather fluffy head on this one. Smells very metallic with just a very faint hint of tomato skunkiness. Oddly this starts sweetly and with the type of hop backing I expect from a rather average pilsner it mixes in my mind to remind me of a superior ginger beer. The hops aren't bold enough for me to really like this but it is a lot better than most of the ubiquitous unit shifting tinned lagers here.
File under better than I was expecting given the price.

2.83/5 rDev -5%
500ml can, purchased at the LIDL supermarket. Served chilled in pint glass.
A: pale golden with mild streams of fizziness, coming with a rather tight layer of white froth that dissipates slowly to a thin cap.
S: a thin-bodied, bitter-sweet corn-ish maltiness goes hand in hand with a mildly doughy and lemony note; very simplistic.
T: light-bodied, straw lager malts with a faint grainy touch upfront lead towards very light plastic tinge of malts... slowly but surely, dryish hops and a slightly thin bitterness of hop extracts develop and take over, until hitting a clean finish where a faint aroma of malts lingers.
M&D: fizzy and thin-bodied without being too watery. This is not the worst German pilsener I've tried, but below average overall.
