Brewed in Germany, so must adhere to the purity law one would imagine.

I thought this stuff would be terrible as it is obviously a gimmick, however I was pleasantly surpisred. The beer is okay with half decent flavour, nothing to write home about though.

The packaging states that the beer is a Lagerbier Hell, which would suggest it is a Munich Helles style beer.

330ml Can from a Prague Mini-Market (59CZK):
Clear, light amber with a large, foamy head that is bone-white and holds okay initially before holding at 0.5cm.

Grassy hops & some skunk on the nose initially. There was a very light & faint citrus aroma coming through with more water than I would have expected or liked, there was some bitterness too.

Basic and fairly cheap (despite the cost) pale lager with some light malts and grassy hops with some earthy tones and a hint of biscuit. There wasn't a lot going on really.

Light to thin bodied with a watery, quite bland feel but it still felt like a lager at least, albeit a light one. There was a faint citrus tang & a dry, moderately bitter finish as well.

Not all that enjoyable & purely a gimmick, not up to the standard of the much cheaper, & better Czech lagers that were for sale in the same shops as this one. The beer was thin & bland with nothing going for it really.

A 330ml can with a BB of March 2014. ABV is stated as 4.7%. Given to me as a gift a little while back (from Switzerland). It's Duff - how can I resist trying it?

Poured into a pilsner glass. A clear golden colour with faint sediment and medium carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before disappearing. Some lacing. A subtle aroma of light, grainy malt with mild hints of stewed leaves and DMS. Slightly sweet and seriously bland.

Tastes of ultra-light malt with a crisp, dry finish. Notes of weak grain, mild stewed leaves and a twinge of cardboard in the background. Pretty clean, with a delicate bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and a watery body. A very subtle aftertaste of light malt and stewed leaves/veg.

Not too much going on here, which I guess was to be expected. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are exceptionally bland and watery. Average body for a mass-produced lager. At least it's clean and inoffensive. Nothing technically wrong with it, but the lack of character makes for a dull drinking experience. No need to hunt it down.
