adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Clear pale yellow appearance with a larger white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweet pale malty aroma thatís not that pleasing. Sweet pale malty flavor thatís bitter, a bit skunky, and not that easy to swallow.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Half liter bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of raw grain, floral hops. The taste is sweet malts, corn, a tart grape-like note, green banana. Thin bodied. A little different, at least.

Rune (9075) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2012
500ml flip-top bottle, as Zelta Premium 5.2% abv., beer gift from Helga. Crystal clear, golden body. Fragile lacing from a airy, chalk white head. Plain grainy malts to the nose. Taste of sweet, bready malts. Dry, sweet fruity end. Minimal hops. Soft carbonated. Standard for the style (shared with Frau Eva, 20.03.2012).

crossovert (8853) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
500ml pull-top clear bottle. It pours exactly how it looks in the bottle, a pale gold with a big foamy bright white head. It actually is a nice looking beer, but that doesnít mean you should use the clear bottle, especially for export bottles. The smell has some honey, paper, graham, and a hint of grassy hops. Not skunked thank heavens, gotta grab it from the back of the shelf. The taste is very similar to the smell, there is a big hit of grain and cooked veggies that make the flavor just average EPL crap. It will end up with a nice rating on here, but it is average at best for the style and not really worth drinking. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-28-2010 01:16:48

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2007
Bottled. A still looking orangey green colourd lager. The aroma is ice and water - no more. The taste is thin and watery; in fact there is no taste except a tiny lagerish alcohol bite. Wick, wick, wack.

3fourths (8497) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2007
More country whoring. 500ml bottle, clear bright yellow with white head, typical performance, builds a bit then settles quickly. Nose is typical, taste is typical, itís a little bit of a malt liquor fuesal smell and taste, lightly sweet and moderately sharp or bitter. I mean címon itís really the same as almost every other international generic lager.

DocLock (8386) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with white head and aromas of slight hopcit, some honey and pale malts. Tastes bready malty, with some caro syrup and subdued hopcitrus. Thereís nothing particularly wrong with this one, but nothing that really stands out either. Not too shabby.
