Kosmokrator (493) - - JUL 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Giallo paglierino pallido con un velo poco persistente di schiuma bianca. Aroma molto classico con sentori luppolati e una dolciastra reminescenza di malto; gusto mediamente amaro e delicato, semplice ma con una buona persistenza. Corpo molto lieve e struttura acquosa, effervescente al punto giusto, finale non "appiccicoso". Una lager rinfrescante, niente di più.

VDuquerroux (312) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear yeallow pale beer with a medium white head ; poor retention head. Aroma of hay, light caramel, herb. Medium refreshing bitter, light sweet. Light body, thin texture, soft mouth but high carbonation, short bitter finish. Overall, refreshing, light, a bit dry.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. Czech version. A: Pours a golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled fluffy white head. Medium retention and some spotty lacings left S: Sweet and grainy followed by Lager yeasts and Saaz hops T: Follows the nose. Sweet grains upfront. Sweet malts, corn, adjunct malts, Lager yeasts and a considerable citrus bitter end. In overall, a dry taste which is also very grainy. Hop bitterness reminds Saaz and is not bad M: Light body. Smooth texture. Good carbonation. Grainy and bitter aftertaste O: Refreshing with an average drinkability, after all. At the same time, the taste of adjunct malts is a little bit overwhelming [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]

Weak carbonation, tastes bland yet metallic. Medium sweet, not bitter though weak in flavor.

RafeAU (154) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Chinese made under license. Very different to the japanese asahi these really should be separate beer ratings. anyway this one was okay, decent lager malt flavours but pretty unexciting.

Drank it in Australia. Quite good. Nothing to call home about. Would drink it again if offered. Not sure if I’d buy it
