Pale! I don't think I've seen a beer this pale before. Yellow and fizzy looking. Strong white head during the pour that lasted about three seconds once pouring was over.

Smells like corn syrup. Perhaps a bit of sweet grain. Not much here.

The taste is as close to water as I've had from a beer. Faint sweetness, not sure it is corn but that's what it makes me think of. At least what taste is there isn't offensive.

The mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Actually isn't bad here, the taste is more watery than the mouthfeel.

Drink it cold and drink it fast, because really this is just a thirst quencher. No thinking required.

Very pale beer, with a weak seetish smell and almost no taste. There's no use to discuss start and finish, nose or tails - Meister is actually tasteless. Faint bitterness here and there, small malty-grainy notes, but not enough of that to make a taste. Not a disgusting brew, but very disappointing one. You better order soda pop...

Purchased and sampled in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, this brew came in a green 1/2 liter bottle with a bulge neck and green, gold and white label featuring a couple of medals above the name. Everything is in English: "Premium Quality," "Lager Beer" and "Brewed to the Original Recipe." The ingredients list conforms with the purity law. Best before 08/06, I sampled it on Christmas Eve 2005.

Pours a clear watery light gold under a one finger white head that fades quickly to collar, managing nevertheless to generate a couple spots of lace. There's not much nose at all - really. The mouth is light and mildly carbonated. The taste is watery - very little malt, just a touch of sweet grain like white bread. Also just a shadow of tinny hop bitterness well after the finish. This brew is not objectionable per se, but is nothing to be proud of.
