Clean, smooth and crisp refreshing Lager, This stuff is cheap where I'm from but taste great ! Taste similar to Heiniken without the usual pleasant malty after taste, so not as 'heavy'

Can only recommend it when you fancy buying something different for yourself and to share.

I had four of these in St. Martin and Sint Maarten. In the Caribbean, there aren't a lot of beer choices, so this was available and it turned out to be refreshing.

It is a typically light yellow affair, with biggish bubbles. The aroma is a sweeter version of the style - not very hoppy.

The taste is inoffensive but boring. It's sweet-ish and not hoppy enough.

We got two of these (in cans) and a Cuban cigar for three bucks just off the boardwalk on the Dutch side (on the French side they were more like $4 each in a fancy restaurant on Orient Beach). Good value in the can (and I think it was tastier), and the cigar wasn't at all bad either (a Monte Cristo).

A light lemon/mineral water taste, nicely rounded with saaz hops and an apparently endless amount of streaming bubbles make for an enjoyable pilsener. Got this pint can for $1.00. Very refreshing and sessionable.

Nice maltier pils. Good full flavor, must be the mineral water.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a high white head that films out in a minute. Film lasts though. Clear medium gold color.

S- Nice yeast and malt. Very European

T- Like a crappy Heineken really. Not much else to say

M- Crisp and dry like a Heineken

O- A Heineken clone. Ok at best

Food Pairing

This ok beer goes well with....... Pretzels!

Enjoy

This was a crisp beer with a subtle, hard to identify aftertaste. It wasn't anything special but I enjoyed it.
