Another Bavaria made beer with a number on it's name, strangely half of the 8.6 series. Anyway, 500 ml can, (and I think is available only in cans) poured into a shaker type glass. Two fingers of whote head, thick for the first seconds, slowly becoming really froathy and going away. leaving heavy lacing around the glass. Average amount of bubbles rising to the top, and lots more of them stuck on the glass's walls. The colour of the beer itself is golden yellow, typical of a euro pale lager.
Not much on the aroma, just malts and some old bread smell.
Taste is kind of weird, maltiness but also kind of sour milk/old bread. Not as bad as I maybe made it sound. Aftertaste is rather sweet too. I see now on the ingredients list that contains wheat too, so that's where the weird smell and taste are coming from.
Watery mouthfeel, and nothing else to report on this front.
Overall and taking the low price into account, this would do in a very hot day as its tolerable taste and watery mouthfeel make it a very good thirst quencher, but in the Netherlands we rarely, if ever, get very hot days. Maybe something to cook with.

Sent over by mail in a care package from a friend in Holland this is a decent light tasting lager that has a fresh hop nose and a pleasant hoppy taste. The finish is dry and doesn't hang around too long but at 4.3% ABV you could drink a few of these at a BBQ or party and feel ok. I liked it better than Alfa and less than Grolsch but I would rather see this in BC than the overproof 8% lager mostly found here.
