Pours light golden with a small white head. Medium carbonation, slightly spicy and bread aroma. Light spice start, light to medium barley flavor. A clean finish with a light bite.

Can (500 ml). Courtesy of mathieuc, thanks! Clear pale yellow with a small disappearing white head and little lacing. Aroma is hard to find... but when you get it there’s some grains, very light herbalness, hints of citrus and a huge presence of... nothing. Taste is quite bland too with very light citrus, grains and fainted herbal notes. Light body. Watery. Soft carbonation. A finish? Didn’t notice. There’s not much difference between taste and aftertaste so I can’t really say if it’s a long lasting aftertaste of if I was just unable to find the taste in the first place. You have to give it to this beer, the alcohol is super well hidden... probably playing hide & seek with flavor and aroma. If there’s really 5,2% abv in that beer, that’s a really cheap way to get drunk without any pain. Super easily drinkable. The epitome of blandness.

SarkyNorthener (1941) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Can from Deya, burton. Golden beer no head. Aroma is faint malt. Taste is pale malt, metallic and an unpleasant herbal taste. Bad beer.

alex_alkis (286) - SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Boring beer that barely tastes anything. The bitterness is a bit metallic wich is not especially 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.

Vells (669) - LATVIA - JUN 9, 2014
Long time ago, it was quite decent drinkable, now its more like water with taste of beer. Not disaster, but.. Some grainy maltiness, corn, some low hops. Watery, but drinkable if you are thirsty.

BlackHaddock (3760) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Clear 500ml bottle with a ring-pull cap: BBD 11th June 2014, shared with my father on 25th May 2014 during an afternoon of lager/pilsner comparing. The bottle was obtained from an Eastern European store in Boston, Lincolnshire. Basic and cheap feel to this bright golden brew. No aroma, very little actual taste, just a refreshing drink with some alcohol hanging around the edges. The worst beer of the five tried during the little session. No redeeming attributes, glad it was fairly cheap to buy.

mandaritto (60) - LATVIA - MAY 9, 2014
Cheap, pure golden colour, economic beer. Classic pale lager from Baltic Grainy, malty taste. Drinkable, but nothing special at all.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée à la SAQ du Complexe Desjardins. Dégustée le 4 mars 2010 (dimpled bug), date de production 18 juillet 2009. Bière blonde limpide pâle. Mousse beaucoup, col crémeux épais et persistant. Peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur qui rappelle le ginger ale. Goût de grain de maïs (fait penser à de l’eau dans laquelle on a fait tremper des grains), ainsi que de citron en finale. Désaltérante malgré qu’elle soit assez sucrée. Manque de corps, de caractère, ensemble un peu terne.

Vighals (1149) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2014
Lys brun klar med tynt hvitt skum. Malt, syrlig sitrus og kornlukt. Smaker vann med kullsyre som det har ligget noen sitronbåter i.
