500ml can. A pale clear golden body, medium white head with poor retention, no lacing at all. Aroma of cereal, hay, rice, touch of grass. Tastes a little better, cereal sweetness, touch of herbal hop bitterness. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish.

Medium-gold with a continual stream of bubbles rising towards the paper-thin head. Aromas and flavours work in unison, offering a solid dose of malt and confectionery sugar. The round malt flavour even holds out on the medium-length finish. Quite nice.

MarkoNm (531) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with average white head that soon disappears. Mild malty aroma plus some grainy aroma as well. Slightly skunky. Malty and light taste, slightly watery, weak bitterness in the end. Drinkable, but nothing else.

Botella 500 Ml. No es tan mala como parece, pero se puede hacer larga de tomar (por lo menos la botella de medio litro)

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2007
500ml bottle, 5.2% Generously carbonated, golden colour, with a thick creamy looking white head. The nose is of grains, malt, and unfortunatly a little urine. Tastes much the same, a little too malty for my tastes, with a somewhat complex and spicy aftertaste which is easily the beers highlight.

hens (527) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2013
0.5L bottle. Strong bread, hop aroma. Taste is sweet an light lemon flavor. Hops goming out in the end again and this takes normal tasteful finish. Drinkable sometimes

Golden with lively head. Notes of yeast, cardboard, little friuit and caramel. Sweet flavour and no finish.

Not very exciting. not very sweet and the flavor is not very bold at all. Kind of a funny, metallic aftertaste though.

Clear Yellow, Big Head, Decent Lacing. Funky Aroma, not exactly skunk, but something along those lines. Would not be surprising since it came in a white bottle... Malt, corn, buttery, alcohol shines at the end... Gone bad or plain no good beer. Either way, nothing good or interesting here. Drinkable, but one was plenty for me... Pass it...

Batch 10072128, if that means anything to anyone. No date on the bottle, though. I'm guessing mine is quite different from some of the others listed. While this is far from excellent, IMO, it's not bad at all, and certainly not as bad as I was expecting. Pours a *really* pale yellow, as in almost white color with a tinge of yellow. Decent head that did okay and there was some decent lacing left down the glass. Smell isn't very strong, but malt with a touch of hops. Taste is also very mild. Definately has malt going on but it's not exactly complex. A bit of a malt aftertaste, albeit a small bit. Mouthfeel is quite full and thick, much more than I was expecting. Drinkability is definately good as I may grab a few more of these next time I'm at the store. I know I have a good source (for the time being), but after reading the other scores, I think if a future bottle had any dust on it I might skip it.
