Bottle into stemware goblet in me friend's gaff in Berlin, Germany. Acquired at REWE stores, northern Berlin. Reviewed live.

A: Two finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and average retention. Dark yellow colour. Average appeal.

Sm: Crystal hops. No cream. Almost a biscuity scent. Not really pleasant, but it generates a curiosity to find out what that biscuity note is.

T: Slight cream lurks beneath the barley body, which is complemented somewhat nicely by generic crystal hops. Has that awful American macro lager curtail on the end, an upshot of nastiness to solidify negative opinions if there was any lingering doubt. The biscuity note is a sort of stale hop tone that partially combines with the lurking cream to generate a neutral effect neither bad nor good but I suppose welcome for its addition to the beer's complexity. This beer is poorly built for the style, but it's fairly balanced all things considered.

Mf: Smooth until the climax, on which it coarsens, which is par for the style, but not done well in this case. Wet throughout, but aversive of refreshment.

Dr: This is a budget beer through and through. As a beer intended to get you bollocksed for no money, it's a success. As a beer to be tasted for enjoyment, it's a dire failure. Leave this one where it belongs, lads: on the shelf.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is nil.
The taste has a bit of metallic bitterness with some grain sweetness.
The texture is fairly crisp.
Not great.

Pale golden color with one finger head with low retention.
Predominant aroma of grassy hops and a hint of vanilla.
Refreshing taste with a spicy feeling. Mild grainy malt with crisp grassy hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with low to medium carbonation.
Classic recipe for a pilsner, being a session beer, I haven’t seen any differentiator’s highlights or flaws (maybe a bit too thin or watery). Decent not extraordinary. Not worthy with the price sold in Brazil.

Got a sixer of this for $11.50 AUD at a BWS in Cairns. From notes.

A - Very light gold, two finger fluffy white head. Bright. Strong carbonation, no lace, minimal film of retention.

S - Honey, sweet grain, sugar, inoffensive.

T - Lot's of sweet grain, honey.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, lingering off-honey finish.

O/D - Not something I'd revisit, but definitely not one of the worst lagers I've had. No corny adjunct component in the flavour and the price in Australia is pretty good. Not something you'd brag about drinking, but you certainly don't have to feel guilty about it.

Very cheap import, $30 a carton.
Pours a pale golden yellow, haze-free. Not much discernable bubbling, but one can work a reasonably light fluffy white head.
Aromas of pilsener malt, grain husk, slightly grassy, and slightly sulfurous.
Fairly stratightforward flavour.... as it smells, plus some spicy hops & green herbs.
Medium bitterness, and quite crisp if not dry.
Good value.

This was an average but enjoyable beer on all counts.
More malty sweet than I would expect from a pils and lacked the saaz tartness.
For reasons unknown this is selling very cheaply by the slab at Liquorland and is a reasonable quaffing option for the budget conscious

A - Two fingers of fluffy head crown the crystal clear body of pale golden amber. A few slops of lacing.

S - Sweet malt, crackers, dash of lemon juice.

T - Subtle grassy hops, crackers, lemon.

M - Light bodied, decent carbonation.

O - An OK session beer and cheap, but certainly dont make it a priority buy.
