Green 12 oz bottles. A little skunky and very pale, this brew is overcarbonated. Head disappears. Malt flavors are limited to non-descript sweet. The hops are a little flowery, a one distinction for a very ordinary lager. The bubbles make it a real belly-filler so its drinkability with food is pretty compromised. Overall, I get a negative impression...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a pint glass. ABV of 5.0%.

Appearance: Nice sized off-white head. Clear yellow body. Looks to be par for the course.

Smell: More of a hop presence than I was expecting. Grassy and clean.

Taste: Really good taste for a simple Euro lager. Everything is present and in balance. Very simple, yet well constructed.

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

Appearance: yellow. Sturdy, good looking head that stayed well.
Smell: faint malt/hops. Pleasant.
Taste: Average pilsner taste in every way exept one. It had a nice nutty/malty aftertaste that I really enjoyed.
Mouthfeel: smooth, appropriate carbonation.
Drinkability: nice warm weather guzzler, won't seek it out, but good price and pleasant taste make for a good pool/party beer.

A- Light gold color, around 1 finger head diminishes to very faint lacing, eventually disappears

S- Somewhat floral hops, sweet

T- Light pilsner taste, slight malt/metallic aftertaste that lingers

M- slight carbonation bite that lasts throughout but still remains relatively smooth

D - average drinkability, the combination of the carbonation and malt aftertaste hinder it slightly but still comes off as a pleasant beer on a warm day

11.9 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Light golden in color, pretty translucent, less than a fingers worth of head that disappears very quickly. No lacing.

S: I'm not getting a lot.... Just a touch of hops and sweet corn.

T: A little on the boring side.... touch of hops but mainly sweet corniness.

M: Light to mid bodied with slight carbonation, pretty smooth with little aftertaste.

D: Pretty average beer, nothing really stands out and could easily be a Bud. Nothing different here, nothing to run out and get.

Brown 11.2 FL OzBottle, Label reads Bear Beer 5% ABV.
A clear golden color with two fingers of white frothy head that goes away fast,lots of carbonation. Aroma of slightly skunky citrus hops and a lightly roasted malt . Flavor is lightly bitter,a bit of skunk,a splash of lemon ,some hay, a bit of malt for balance,by far not the best Lager I've ever had,but it's crisp,clean and refreshing, a fun try .

11.2oz brown bottle
HAR8262 printed on the back label

Pours a a pale yellow color with some clarity issues and a small white head, a couple of tiny bubbles lazily make their way to the top in support of the head. Smells of grainy adjunct sweetness and musty malt. Average in flavor, it tastes like a pale European lager nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected here. Light in body, very drinkable. Would order over a Stella if given the option im sure.

appearance - bright straw

smell -- it's got that classic export lager sweet-metal smell, what the heck is that anyway? also it was a bit skunked, a little hay and fresh straw in the nose too.

taste -- coffee like bitters, cover the whole tongue, with a slightly husky/honeyed malt finish -- bitters stay at sides of the tongue.

overall -- not so hot, i'd rather have a Carlsberg.
