500 ml can, $1.99 plus deposit at a BC Liquor Store.

When I was in university, one of my friends dated a German guy, studied German, and drank mainly German beer. I think this was the beer she drank the most. I had it a few times back then, but I haven't had it since.

A: Straw yellow, clear, some carbonation.

S: Lightly grassy, a bit metallic.

T: I was expecting a fairly generic lager taste. While this isn't awful, that generic lager taste would be an improvement. It's drinkable, but I'd never get it again. It's kind of watery, and there's something about it that reminds me a little of apple juice.

F: A bit watery, but the carbonation gives it a pleasant crispness at least.

O: I suppose there's a reason it was only $1.99.
