FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2007
Keg (Victory, Riga) Light orange, thin head. Decent potent light malt aroma, but a little sour funk spoils that. Does have a little body, but is disappointing. Better than many a pale lager though.

Bottle from case and keg. pours a light yellow. White hea. Corn, corn corn and a tiny touch of hops. Flavor is very fizzy and malty. Tons of grain in the flavor...dman this wasnt that good.

maeib (8391) - 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.

NielsenRatings (8273) - 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 (7940) - 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.

3fourths (7797) - 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 (7481) - 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.

(Bottle at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2008)

Clear straw color, small white head. Sweet, lime and vegetable scent. Sweet but dry taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Rune (7348) - 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).

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Crisp pale yellow, respectable white head and some half decent lacing. Verys light bit of grassy/grainy hops in very muted aroma. Palate and flavour palate are very light, with just a slight bitterness. Boring but inoffensive and fairly quaffable.
