500ml aluminum can acquired at Tesco supermarket in Bratislava for under 1 euro and served into a kitchen glass in me friend's gaff in Bratislava. Reviewed live. Expectations are low given the ownership of this brewery. Served cold and side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

4.0% ABV confirmed.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 1.5 fingers wide. Off-white colour. Okay thickness, creaminess, and consistency. Leaves light lacing. Retention is average - about 2 minutes.

BODY: Clear fizzy light yellow of below average vibrance. Translucent. Seems overcarbonated. Clean; no yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible. Far from unique or special looking.

AROMA: Stale barley, generic pilsner malts, and possibly corn adjunct. Some cream, maybe? A poor aroma of average strength.

No yeast, alcohol, hop character, or off-character is detectable.

TASTE: Clean barley, generic pilsner malts, a hint of cream, and helles malts. That's it. Painfully simple, with no redeeming characteristics. At least it's not watery.

No yeast character, overt hop character, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable. This is difficult to like, but hard to hate.

Poor depth of flavour. Average duration and intensity of flavour.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, light-bodied, overcarbonated, unrefreshing, a biteen stale, and a bit hefty on the palate for the lack of flavour. Doesn't suit the style particularly well. Overall presence on the palate is poor.

OVERALL: As forgettable a budget lager as you'll find in Eastern Europe. Even at its reasonable price point, I wouldn't bother with it again. Not worth trying. Quite mundane. On the low side of average. It's drinkable, at least, and hides its low ABV decently.

A "light beer" that gives a nod to the Czech Pilsener tradition.

Usual pale golden lager color. The head pours like a waterfall with great fine textured carbonation. Probably the best feature of this beer. It does have some hoppy flavors. Bitter tang lasts in the aftertaste and is not unpleasant. Heineken is the distributor.

Really not a bad gulp for a watery low-alcohol beer. We'd probably think it was a great leap forward if it was made in the U.S. and branded "Miller Svetlé Pivo."
