Brewed by Heineken Switzerland
Style: Pale Lager
Tell is cheap supermarket fare from Coop, the large retail chain that one can see all over Switzerland. Sometimes when you live in a country where prices can be high when shopping it can be vital to get your hands on shit cheap beer, that’s important!
I guess it is called after that great Swiss folk hero William Tell, you know, the guy who shot the apple off his son’s head. Either way it is produced by Heineken Switzerland, make of that what you want!
Review: 50cl Can of Tell Lager: ABV: 4.8%
Think it came in at about 50 to 60 cents a can, as far as I can remember, but way cheaper than more established brands.
On pour I got a golden colour with a large frothy head appearing,
Looks like there is a bit of sediment hanging around resulting in a darkish, not clear,golden colour. (perhaps I got a bad batch?)
There is a good bit of carbonation going on, the beer has a decent sized head that surprisingly stuck around and has some decent lacing.
Had a nice lagery smell and was grainy, which was faint but ok.
Onto the taste, it was light enough but did manage to get some nice big mouthfuls
Tastes ok, smooth and easy enough to quench, albeit had a slight sour bitter note to it.
Has the expected lagery taste, with light pale malts and grains, slightly metallic.
Overall not too bad, considering the price of it. For a cheap beer it can do the business, just about I might add!
