MrBlueSky93 (400) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours Golden, pale in colour, very clear, lots of bubbles and a nice single finger head. Aroma of Honey, Grass, Grain. Initial taste of Honey, (standard for Eastern European/Russian Lagers) then some wheat, grain, grass and some herbs, maybe lemongrass, maybe fennel...a nice crisp yet slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

ClubGonzo (4548) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2015
Can. Pours a light golden body with a small white head. Nose is mild banana, grains, straw and hints of dusty hops and maize. Taste is grains, red berries, straw, pale malts and hints of grass and honey. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Although this might actually display some "brewing flaws" regarding style (a bit too estery for a pale lager, for example) I’d say it lifts the beer considerably, from a regular boring pale lager to a rather tasty pale lager. Still, it’s a pale lager. They only go so far.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Botle 50 cl) Very pale, slightly hazy beer. Looks almost like a Belgian witbier. Creamy, stable head leaving laces on my glass. If this really is a lager, it’s really rather unusual because of it’s odd wheaty touch. Slightly sourish and quite fresh. According to the Aldaris website this is a lager made pale with some barley-starch. But all in all surprisingly nice. 160104

Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with an average, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (husky grain, hay, straw), average hops (grass), average yeast (earth, leaves) with notes of apple, pear, and vegetable. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

rauchbier (3651) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Bottle (5%), from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Low sweet grainy malt and herbal hoppiness in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth with some malty sweetness and a pleasant tingle of hop bitterness which lingers into the finish, some estery notes develop with time.

Mild hop aroma. Light on the tongue but slightly sticky. Hazy honey color. Lots of head that doesn’t last. Light flavor, somewhat sweet hoppy finish.

thedm (5034) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 16, 2008
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy with a frothy top bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was floral and malty. crisp . The flavor contained notes of malt hops and grassy. An OK brew just nothing special.

wlajwl (4419) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Aroma is grains and tea-like but not quite. The flavor is heavy on the grains, along with fruit and a flavoring to the grains that I can’t quite place. Different and decent enough pale lager.
