Had this beer at the Hong Kong airport of all places. Very light and tasted good after a 15 hour flight.

I recommend this beer to anyone who doesn't like the taste of beer.

The beer is refreshing... light and no bitter after taste. I didn't notice any strong smell like other beers. I think it has a pleasant smell and goes down rather smooth. Wish it was available in the US.

A 330ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Nov 2012, so it's a little out of date. Picked up cheap from a local off-licence the other day . The label mentions that it was brewed in Lithuania. My impression is that this is designed to compete with other recent arrivals on the shelves such as Carling Chrome or San Miguel Fresca.

Poured into a straight pint glass. An ultra-pale straw colour, like weak piss. Good carbonation. A hard pour results in a large head of frothy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of super-light malt with hints of corn, stewed veg and a faint whiff of green apples and solvent. Slightly sweet.

Tastes of faint, watery malt with a dry finish. Notes of mild corn/rice, stewed grain, hints of overcooked veg and a subtle sweetness. Dry and attenuated, with no bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, with tingly carbonation and virtually no body. Aftertaste of wet grain and stewed veggies - yuck.

Ultra-light and ultra bland. One of the palest lagers I've ever seen, and it's appearance reflects it's depth of character. Flavourless and insipid, with faint off-notes that detract from the experience. Weak sauce. I suppose you could call it refreshing, but then again so is water. Not recommended.

28th June 2012: clear 33cl bottle, best before 24th Nov 2012, poured into an ‘Augustijn’ chalice.

Very, very pale urine look to it: the full head looked good, but soon fell away to a thin wisp.

Crisp, tangy and citrusy are the plus points in the flavours but it lacks ‘umph’ and depth: a classic lawn mower beer, refreshing yet not really a beer I could recommend to anybody.

2.78/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance: Very pale and clear, carbonation evident. Pours a foamy white two finger head.

Aroma: Fairly fresh and refreshing aroma, with some citrus and fruit; strangely reminds of some ciders.

Taste: Quite bland, easy drinking, but no depth whatsoever. Some of the citrus aroma carries on into the taste as well, but there's not much to it.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, uninteresting.

Overall: On the lighter side, basic lager. There's something a little bit different about it with the citrus, and I can see how a bottle might be ok on a hot day.
