Clear yellow color with an amazing white head, like a craft beer. Weak malty aroma, somce cereal and corn notes. Flavor is malty as well. ordinary lager beer. mouthfeel is quite sweet.

Pours a clear golden with a white head. Very sweet malt aroma with hints of corn. Taste is sweet but not too thin in the mouth.

Terrible. This is purely a gimmick. Tastes like rust, not in the fun stab-your-neighbour-in-the-eye sort either. Rather more like being forcefed buckets of liquid rust. Grab a bottle of the Trooper Ale instead of you want a gimmick which delivers.

19.21oz can. Sweet nose is malty and floral, lightly grainy, touch corn. Pours deep but clear golden with some darker amber and orange hues, strong carbonation, oily look, dense off-white head. Taste is dry and a little scratchy, earthy, good harvest-time grain character, only light floral and candyish notes on the edges, finish also dry. light bitterness picks up to medium by the end, a little corn flavor here and there, medium-full body. At this point, I’d call it something of a success, but it lacks definition and doesn’t taste clean at all, which becomes a problem in the long aftertaste. [2015.11.22: 1.8]

585ml can for 1€ and some cents. this made me think about the worst cheap canned lager, but i’d found a really enjoyable beer, with a kind of floral aroma of hops and taste of crispy malt. definitely a valuable beer for daily use!

Pours a pale yellow with a white head. Grass, floral and grain aroma. Floral, grass, light hop and cracker flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Slightly sweet. Grass and grain finish.

bhensonb (12962) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Can from Malt and Vine. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Mild, mild grassy/spicy aroma. Near med body. Flavor is pale malt with mild Saaz hop, I’m guessing. It’s actually pretty good for a pale lager, and probably is great for swilling down with heavy German provender.

19.2oz can pours with a clear pure pale gold body that supports a fluffy near white head of foam. Tossed in the freezer for a while to help out the flavor and aroma profile. All rockers do this, trust me. The frigid aroma offers up soft and subtle pear and apple like fruity ester notes to go along with a faint mineral sort of hoppiness (maybe). The taste begins nice and cold as it ushers in classic honey sweetened apple and pear notes leading into a decent degree of earthy spicy Noble like hoppiness. Toward the finish it gets faintly grainy and bready with malts. The after taste yields a nice bit of spicy and floral like hoppiness. All in all decent indeed. This is certainly one of the better Pale Lagers I’ve had. Maybe the frigid temperature helped with that assessment.

Pours a light beer colour. Has a metallic and chemical taste. Leave a lingering funkiness on the tongue

kafarion (220) - POLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Aromat słodowy, są estry owocowe i to tyle. Piwo klarowne, kolor słomkowy, piana niska, ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak słodowy, goryczka znikoma, wodniste. Dobrze wysycone, całkiem pijalne, lekkie. Ogólnie no piwo, niczego nie urywa, ale wad nie ma, mogłoby smakować smakoszom koncerniaków.

1 pint 3.2 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear gold color aith a white head of foam. The aroma has mild dough, some corn, and a bit of grassy nuance. Lightly sweet throughout, but manages to finish out in a crisp, grassy bitterness. Refreshing and thirst quenching. Light to medium in body and medium to higher carbonation. Not bad, really.
