nakedwhendrunk (2135) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 2, 2013
From the twist off bottle into my pilsener, it pours really light. The one inch super foamy white head stays around for a good two minutes. There is fast rising carbonation. Some light lacing is left. The smell has corn and rice adjuncts up front. The taste is sweet with the corn and rice adjuncts up front, some hops are very faint in the background. The palate is extremely light and there isn’t any harshness on the tongue. Overall, this is good for its style but only decent to me.

Jultsu (166) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
0.44l pullo. Vaalea lager, olematon vaahto. Ei tuoksua, pikkuisen vaahtoava suutuntuma, lievä metallisuus ja terävyys. Kuiva jälkimaku. En keksi juuri positiivista. Keskivertoa.

Bork (178) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Watery and almost flavorless beer with a dry character all the way through. Crisp and clean but awfully light.

Let’s be honest: you only drink this at a sushi restaurant, and why would you? It tastes like the can it came in.

Tsekouratos (217) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - SEP 8, 2014
Light yellow color, white head. Aromas of tin metal and grains. Horrible taste of tin can, dirt, skunky as hell. Light body with medium carbonation.

Sparf (120) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Mycket svag doft av bröd och hö/gräs. Gyllene lager med ett varaktigt men storbubbligt skum. Menlös lager med svag maltton och nästan obefintlig beska. Har också en lätt obehaglig citrussyra. Duger att skölja ned en curry med men inte så mycket mer. Blaskig.

einherjar (33) - CROATIA - SEP 3, 2014
0,5 bottle made in Czech Republic. Light golden color with white head. Malty aroma, taste sweet, then sour and metallic.

A couple of pintsvof this go down well, but it gets annoying after that. Not a session beer, but distinctive.

jann3 (103) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Pours clear golden with a big frothy head, that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweetish with malty and grainy notes, combined with some mild herbal/floral notes. Taste is mild and malty/grainy with some moderate hoppiness. Slightly dryish finish. Lively CO2, but quite watery mouthfeel. Very basic but refreshing lager. (44 cl bottle, best before 24 Jun 2015, produced by Baltika Breweries in Russia)

nicocanta (25) - - AUG 28, 2014
Bière japonaise dorée, brassée avec du riz, en grande Bretagne pour ce qui est du marché européen... Une pils comme il en existe mille. Pas la plus insipide mais qu’on oubliera tout de même aussi sec. Bon... Vais me boire une Eku moi...

YantarCoast (88) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 25, 2014
Poured from 500ml bottle into lager glass. Transparent pale yellow colour with small and brief head. Aroma of grains and rice, taste is similar. Simple and refreshing. UK version doesn’t differ much in taste compared to Japan-brewed version.
