ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - NOV 10, 2012
330ml bottle Pours a clear light gold, with a small and rapidly fading white head, which leaves little lace. The aroma has some white bread and a rather off metallic note. Artificial lemon hops and some spice up front lead into a fairly uninteristing grainy body. A pretty dull lager.

Boutip (5856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
Draft: Poured a clear golden color lager with a nice pure white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light adjunct notes with some light cereal notes and residual sugar notes is OK. Taste is also a mix of adjunct and residual sugar notes with light cereal notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Typical pale lager with more residual sugar then I would care for.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Half pint with tapas meal. Served very cold. Pale straw colour and very fizzy. Aroma bland with some treacly malt, some grainy flavour but overall very watery. Fine with a meal but nothing special.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2016 Klar gyllen farge. Skummet forsvinner fort. Lite kullsyre. Forholdsvis forfriskende.

mikske79 (1462) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - APR 6, 2016
Een mooie schuimkraag als je het uitschenkt. Een mooie heldere kleur. De geur is zoals het moet zijn, niets meer, niets minder. De smaak valt ook heel goed mee, meer smaak dan een doordeweekse pint. Een meevaller

Fresh & malty on the nose, pours with a good head. Smooth in the mouth, with a malty flavour that is neither bad not particularly "especial". In summary an ok lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
