500ml Bottle - Golden in colour. Malty aroma with grain and a hint of honey. Clean tasting with malt and a light hoppy element.

bytemesis (6723) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Light aroma of grain, perhaps carboard. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy. Light bitter finish. Surprisingly rich mouthfeel.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Riga. ABV is 4.5%. Pale golden colour, large and lasting white head. Pleasant fruity and flowery aroma. Relatively sweet pale lager flavour, light bodied and thin, hints of fruit and honey, low bitterness. Far from exciting, but not offensive either.

KnutAlbert (6705) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 3, 2008
Light lager, but very well hopped, making it very refreshing. Quite similar to a North German pils like Jever. For once the commercial description describes the actual beer and not something the marketing detp has cooked up!

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2014
500ml can. Very pale yellow color. No head. Malty, corny aroma. Weak aroma. Malty, hop extract, corn in taste. Another typical macrolager.

The_Osprey (6324) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
568ml can from an offie in New Malden, 5%, 75 year edition. This was part of a ’buy 6 for Ł5’ deal. How anyone in the supply chain made any profit is beyond me. Anyway… this is golden yellow, clear, pretty much still, small foamy white head with nice lacing. Aroma is lemon juice, jif, estery bubblegum. Wasn’t expecting the frutiness. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is gummy bears, soft malts, simple sugars, biscuit, a little citrus, touch of spice towards the finish. A bit weird and estery for the style. Almost has some saison character. Pretty interesting.

Boks 0,568l fra Dagligvarebutikk i Riga. Lys gylden med litt gulskjćr. Hřyt kritthvitt skum som varer. Litt lacing. Metallisk aroma. Smaken er sřt malt med antydning til frukt. Svakt syrlig avslutning.

Patrickctenchi (6024) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Slightly hazy, old gold....creamy off-white head. Malt grain aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, a little corn, malt. Creamy and soft. Not a bad beer.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
50cl bottle, ABV 5.0% from a Polish shop on Oxford Road, Reading. Straw with a ring of white head and light carbonation; the aroma is light and floral to start with some deeper herbal notes; the taste is similarly light and floral with a ceral body; and a soft, gently bitter finish. Not at all what I was expecting, a refreshing refined lager, rather than a brash Eastern European one.
