TheDog (558) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Can. Clear pale golden colour with white head. Aroma and taste of grainy malt, sour metallic hops and grassy finish. Metallic and dry mouthfeel. Medium appearance but boring lager.

tom10101 (3704) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Thanks to czar! Clear bright yellow with a medium quickly vanishing white head, no lacing. Aroma is of grain, corn, herbal notes and slight citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with grain, corn and grassy notes. Mouthfeel is watery. Body is thin. Unimpressive, even for a generic beer.

Lowenbrau (2522) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2013
500ml bottle. Malty, some skunky aromas. Pours bright gold, clear, with vanishing white head. Average carbonation. light body, crispy texture. Taste is sweet, malty. Standard lager, nothing remarkable.

GregClow (2961) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear and bright golden body with lots of carbonation and a large angel-white head. Aroma and flavour are both bang on what I expected - sweetish grainy malt, moderate level of hops, decently balanced with a quick, grassy finish. A decent and inoffensive middle-of-the-road Eurolager that earns a bit of respect for at least being all malt.

Senka (862) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 50cl bottle. Faint aroma of washing water from beer kettle. Looks extremely pale, more green that yellow, empty, frothy head and minimum carbonation. Does not have much taste - take any premium lager from Mikkeller, dilute it 1:10 with water and you will have this one. And they dare to charge €1 per bottle for that. I am extremely disappointed. I used to be loyal to Tartu brewery (from the Estonian ones) - 10 years ago quality was much higher. The biggest disappointing, is that A. Le Coq head brewer named this beer its favourite (I secretly hoped it will be Porter or Tõmmu Hiid). I hope they will switch to higher quality ingredients - after all,they do have knowledge, history and technology. Updated from 1.4 to 2.1 based on aluminium bottle, limited edition. Nice touch for a macro lager. Smoother beer than the bottles in the same pack.

blankboy (6460) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size frothy diminishing white head. Some light lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, honey, grain and pale malt along with a hint of vegetal notes. Slightly watery flavour’s the same, with grassy hops, grain, honey and pale malt along with some corn. Average bodied. Meh, it’s as mediocre as it gets but -- at least it’s not foul or offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tide (2110) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Can from super market. Golden color, white head. Malty taste with citrus, grass, a bit of sweetness and toast. Quite thin body. Malty finish with grass. Ok lager, pretty basic though.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2012
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur jaune et claire. Nez Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de maïs sucré et de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé, traces de foin) avec des petites notes de légumes bouillis sucrés. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et légèrement croustillant ainsi qu’une texture aux notes aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des traces de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute de petites notes de maïs sucré ainsi que de faibles traces de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume aux notes asséchantes de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé, léger de foin). Post-goût court-moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.
