4.6% abv--Got this in the discount aisle at the local Auchan grocery store for about $.40

A-Clear golden yellow w/thick white foam. Slightly better retention than I expected, and a generous rim of foam remained.

S-White bread and Pilsen malt. It has a clean aroma, but I'm not picking up any of the hops.

T&M-Grainy husk w/bits of light malt. I would go beyond calling it light-bodied...it is watery. But it is clean, even and balanced well-enough. I start to pick up more hops in the finish, and there is a dry aftertaste that is quite nice, w/faint metallic and floral notes.

D-Money for value, you really can't go wrong. It's not great beer, but there's nothing wrong w/it either.

50cl can: Picked this up in a local food store in France. This one pours a clear, golden yellow color with a white head. Fairly typical for this type. The aroma is lighter with a whiff of malts, and some floral hops. Definitely a lighter body, with a mild malt taste and a hint of bitterness in the finish. More an American style commercial lager than a Pils, but Miller calls themselves a pils also. Unoffensive and OK for a cheap beer.

Golden yellow color, not really clean. Average head, better at a second pouring.
Nothing exceptional in the smell, a maybe not really fresh hop, and malt.
At the taste iis quite bitter, and very dry.
Short aftertaste, quite dry again.
A honest macro pils.
