Serving type: can, severly chilled (1-2 degrees Celsius)

Despite not being able to rank this any higher than a 1.0, I kind of... respect this beer, funny as it may sound. It's basically fizzy yellow water with a little malt and hops in the background, and its only real purpose is to get bums drunk. It does that perfectly: being very watery and virtually tasteless, it's also very refreshing on a hot day like today and you could easily chug gallons of the stuff while getting tanked in the process.

Let's cut the crap and face facts: except for the occasional curious beer taster, nobody's going to pick this from the shelves at 39 eurocents a can except for alcoholics. In fact, I saw one purchasing a 24-pack as I bought mine in the local supermarket today. As a beer for alcoholics, it does its job with splendor.

The only real gripes I have with this beer (since I clearly had no real expectations of it), is that it went completely flat after 5 minutes. I'd also never drink more than one because of its highly chemical content.

Since it wasn't disgusting enough to pour down the drain, I had to chug it back quickly before its slightly more rancid taste profiles (malt/yeast/metal stink) came to the forefront too much when heating up at room temperature.

3.53/5  rDev +52.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Golden yellow color. Very clear. Poured with one finger of dense head, which left on about a minute, leaving just a bit of lacing.

Smell: Grassy, a little hops aroma.

Taste: Sharp hops bite right up front. After the bitterness eases off, there is a little flavor from those hops. Not much contribution from the malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. About the right amount of carbonation. Crisp, dry finish.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised, tasting this after having read the previous review. This seems like a good example of the style. I would drink it again.

Many artificial flavors in this beer that tastes unmistakably water. Note, however, a slight bitterness in the finish, although very few interesting and easy to drink with his gentleness and especially its insignificance. Unsavory, she deserves to come back at a price almost cheaper than water.
