look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured from a can into a pokal glass.

Brass to light brown hued but mostly a dark gold body. Fine white head but dissolves quickly to a simple collar.

Aroma stinks. This is from a can but nearly smells skunky somehow. Burnt grain a bit, with a papery cheap malt quality, and very wet.

Palate is just lousy. Wet bodied with nearly no malt quality at all. Mouthfeel is somewhere between paper and cardboard feeling. Gluey like texture strangely. Burnt cracker flavor and just watery flavor.

Who the heck in Europe drinks this.

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.
