In Ireland for 12 days and nights. Handful of Euro notes to spend before next days departure. Just enough to buy 3 of these that cost 1 Euro apiece.
This pours a crystal clear uninviting pale gold. It does pour a head of foam. It is the fastest disappearing head of foam I have ever seen. No side glass lace period. Looks like a sample you drop off at the lab for your own personal lab values
Aroma: A very little bit of grass.
Taste: Is this really beer?
The only reason why this beer gets more than the bare minimum 1.00 is that there was nothing offensive in the odor.

Appearance: Poured from can into (non-real) pint glass in low altitude Galway, Ireland on September 18th, 2010. Pours a clear yellow with an abominable, thin head that quickly reduces to nothing. A pathetic appearance that looks a bit like urine - can't wait.

Smell: A nasty aroma of stale hops and overcarbonation. This isn't looking good.

Taste: Barely one note of light hops bleeding into a sharp finish. There's very little to say about this beer's taste. It's a bit like water with a beer flavour; in fact the main note is water. This beer is bland, uninspired, unambitious, and poorly built, even for the price.

Mouthfeel: Wet and fizzy throughout. Unrefreshing. Neither smooth nor coarse, but discernably awful.

Drinkability: At least it's a bit better than most American macro lagers. At this price range, if you're just looking to get intoxicated, you're better off going with Steel Reserve. This beer might taste better on the way up. If I weren't a broke student I wouldn't be having another.

I am not sure, but think this beer can be bought only in Ireland, where is quite popular in discount stores.

Pours golden with arge head that slowly fades, scarce patchy lacing. Aroma is very light malty. Taste is light lemony hops with some sweetish malt, nothing complex. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Overall, it is below average supermarket lager.
