Reviewed from notes taken Summer 2014.

700 HUF for a .5L draught pour at a restaurant in Budapest.

Expectations were below average going in.

HEAD: 2 fingers worth of head. White colour. Okay thickness, creaminess, and complexion. Pretty good (~5-6 minute) retention. Light lacing adheres to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

BODY: Clear translucent yellow of above average vibrance. No yeast/sediment is visible within.

Generally appealing, appearing well-carbonated. Far from unique or special.

AROMA: Pilsner malts, faint sweetness, clean barley, a kiss of floral hop character. It's a decent aroma for a macrobrew, sure. Clean and pleasant, with no overt yeasty notes, booze, or off-notes.

Below average in terms of aromatic intensity.

TASTE: Clean barley, refreshing full pilsner malts, some light sweetness, and balancing floral hop flavours.

I find no off flavours, overt yeasty notes, or booze.

Pleasant and enjoyable, and balanced nicely for what it is. I do like it, but it's a biteen buttery. Above average depth of flavour. Average flavour duration and intensity.

Not the most complex or subtly executed beer out there, but it's cohesive enough.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, crisp, clean, refreshing. Well-executed for the style. Light-bodied. Suits the taste generally well, with a nice presence on the palate.

OVERALL: Very drinkable and fairly priced. I wish American macro lagers were as tasty as this. Well worth trying and a good table beer for pairing with food.

C+ (3.11) / ABOVE AVERAGE

Pours clean golden color with fast disappearing foam and minimal lacing. Smell is mostly neutral with the rather faint sweet scent. Taste in typical mass lager with the hints of bread, bitter aftertaste, and a bit watery feel.
All in all nothing to write home about but not too bad either.

I don't like this beer. In Italy is very poor of flawors and have a little bad bitter taste. A classic cheap industrial stuff...
