Koskela (401) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 10, 2015
A almost fruity and grainy aroma come from this clear pale yellow brew with tiny white bubbles forming around the glass. A sweetish fruity taste that has to come from the yeast at first. Then the crisp and grainy flavor with a slight bitter and fruity aftertaste. Weird Pilsner.

Bottle. Pale yellow colour with very thin white foam. Aroma: corn, malts, some hops. Taste: watery and thin, some hoppy notes, sweet malts. Bad.

njnut (352) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2015
Poured and drain poured in and out of a pint glass. Color of pale gold with the quickest lasting head Iíve seen in a bit. Aroma and taste of grain, corn, and green glass skunk. After taste was slightly metallic, horrible.

TizzleJizzle (731) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2015
11.2 oz beer. Skunky aroma thanks to the green bottle. Poured an ugly clear piss yellow color with a thin white top with awful head retention. Taste of grain, corn, hay, and cardboard. Lively carbonation, light body, watery texture. Blah.

TedE (494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Standard euro slight hop nose, not bad for a green bottle. Pale amber with thin white head. Little carbonation. Quite sweet, oily texture. Finish is abrupt with tiny cardboard bitterness then a little bubblegum. Iíve had much much worse.

bdunhill (251) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2015
This is your typical generic lager that every country has. Little flavour lingering or on the tongue. Nothing different for a new countries beer!

Saeglopur (1044) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 5, 2014
330 ml bottle, from a friend who travelled to Asia. Thanks!
Pale golden, clear body, with a small, white head, that dissipates quickly.
Aroma of corn, sweet malts, some grass.
Watery taste with about the same aromas.
Thin mouthfeel, with a low carbonation and a light, malty finish..

Thin and dull, a typical pale lager for the masses, that has more in common with soda water than with beer.

Cimbasso (328) - - OCT 21, 2014
Sampled in a 33cl bottle at Beirut Street Food, an outdoor restaurant in the trendy district of Shoreditch High Street, Londob. A pale lager. Perfectly pleasant, but not much to distinguish this from many similar brews. Maize is used in the brewing, which might contribute to the blandness of this beer. Not much bitterness, but no unpleasant tastes either. Quite acceptable as a hot climate beer to drink with spicy food.
