ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, - 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.

adamnowek (255) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
A bit orange tinted in colour. Relatively malty. It doesn't smell or taste very special but it gets the job done.

MarkoNm (752) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 20, 2014
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.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
5th beer in a Lager tasting session with my son on 15th Sep 2014. 330ml bottle: BBD 14th Apr 2015. Poured your regular Lager look, golden, bright and clean, with a full white crown. Sweet and malty but otherwise odourless and tasteless. Nowhere near as good as I expected, but still better than some we shared during the evening.

Watery, tasteless. Good colour and foam though. Just to drink when there is nothing else around.

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
@Spanje, blikje, 33cl, 5.4%, schenkt gouden met witte kraag, te weinig koolzuur om de kraag te voeden. aroma is moutig, nou niet echt bijzonder eigenlijk; eerder wat onaangename kenmerken. smaak is metalig(moutig), zwak bitter, iets onaangenaams, licht zoet, glad, néé ben er niet weg van, ook iets van nat gras, lichte body, lage co2.

allmyvinyl (4221) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2014
330ml bottle courtesy Ashton McCobb. Pours clean pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of honey malt and light lemon. Taste is more of the same. Astringent bitter finish. OK.

Light to medium body. Golden color with intense and balanced carbonation. Sweet aroma, herbaceous with notes of malt. Malt flavor and a hoppy bitterness.
