KeefOz (1171) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2015
Tasted 29/3/15. Draught at cafe Bandolero, Cordoba, Spain. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma of malt and grain but no obvious hops. Taste of sweet malt followed by a slight bitterness. Smooth, crisp, soft, refreshing with a lingering slight bitterness fading to slightly metallic.

Senka (951) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2015
From the archives: decent pale lager. Quite artificial and characterless. A bit of plastic and cardboard. You can drink it if there is nothing else.

A bit orange tinted in colour. Relatively malty. It doesn't smell or taste very special but it gets the job done.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with medium sized white frothy head. Badic malty aroma, some grainy notes. Taste is sweet, malty with mild bitterness in the finish. A tad metallic in the aftertaste. Average, drinkable lager.
