Acquired in REWE stores, northern Berlin. Cost was .40 Euro scent. Reviewed live. Poured into a stemware goblet in me friend's gaff in Berlin, on June 3rd, 2011.

A: Two finger pathetic, thin abysmal head, devoid of cream and of laughable fourteen second retention. Clear dark yellow off-urine colour. This is looking like a cooking beer already.

Sm: A bit like creamed urine. I try not to laugh in front my German friend, but she joins in when she sees what I'm drinking.

T: I swallow me pride and go for the sip in the name of beer advocacy... It's not awful, but it's no Heineken (sarcasm). Balance is extremely awkward, with a sad attempt at cream in the middle, a watery open, and a climax consisting merely of plain barley and a sprinkling of pilsener hops. All of the "flavour" is tucked into the latter quarter. I don't often encounter such wretchedly bad balance; usually bad beers are simple crap barley throughout. Built very poorly for the style.

Mf: Watery garbage. Smooth but thankfully fairly carbonated.

Dr: Very affordable at .40 Euro. In fact the affordability made me debate a D- instead of an F, and then I took another sip. Yeah, that's an F, lads. Berliners joke about how laughably bad this beer is, referring to it as "sterny" in a manner akin to the Irish calling Buckfast "bucky" or the Yanks MD 20/20 "mad dog". This is widely known in Berlin as the drink of the homeless. Has value as a joke on friends. Test their objectivity by having a friend declare this their favourite beer and talk about how amazing it is.

A: Pours clear golden with some small bubbles in the liquid. The large white head starts off thick but turns soapy after a little while. Dissipation takes it's time but leaves fantastic lacings.

S: Grainy with bitter hops. Sadly enough not much else going on.

T: A little better compared to the taste. Malt, only a bit grainy. Bitter hops. Kind of bready.

M: Smooth medium body with moderate carbonation. Aftertaste is creamy bitter.

O: Well, this is a cheap beer and if you are on a budget; why not!
