Very smooth & drinkable for the average beer guy, could see this being a session beer, this nothing to write home about, pretty bland but better than American light beers

MarkoNm (1510) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 20, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent white frothy head, slowly settling down. Malty aroma, slight sweet grains. Taste sweet, light (a bit watery) with some minimal bitterness and a slight metallic feel in the aftertaste. Exactly what you expect from a macro. Not unpleasant, though.

trapped (1377) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with white foamya head, yeast and malt aroma, slightly metallic taste, medium carbonation, weak watery body, abrupt finish. Generic lager, not too bad though.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Beautiful foamy lager with good aroma of hops. The taste is rich of pilsner malt and has a small tang of fresh grass, which certainly appears from the hops. Very typical European lager in its lager style. By that I mean that this beer is like most European mainstream lagers, all brewed to satisfy the average beer drinker and therefore leaves no room for challenges, for example malt fullness or experimental hopping. It is very clean in taste, but in no way a lager that will be recalled in the future.

InPivoVeritas (404) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with small head. Grainy aroma with some corn. Taste is light sweet with low bitterness. High carbonation. Standard eurolager.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Extraordinariamente pálida. Sin burbuja y minimamente turbia. Un dedo de espuma. Aroma plano. Sabor malteado, con final ligeramente dulzón. Muy floja de cuerpo y aguada.

Jimthechap (2057) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2015
To be fair I wasn’t expecting much and it seems my expectations were justified. It appears much the same as many Eurolagers - pale, frothy, lots of bubbles. It smells the same as Eurolager - grainy, indistinct. It tastes the same as many Eurolagers - bland, innoffensive, grainy. It finishes the same as Eurolager as well - innocuous, anonymous, indifferent.

AdiBeer (2117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Aroma: grain and bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: lively carbonation, malty, grain and bread. Overall: boring Lager, but quite quaffable. Can from corner shop, Kubinka.

MrBlueSky93 (500) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle at the Bottle of Sack, Sutton Coldfield. Pours pale golden, single finger white head. Aroma of light malts, grass, grain, touch of honey sweetness. Taste of initial grass, then grain, then the honey sweetness. Light bitterness, simple brew but nice!

Yellow color beer with a big, frothy and lasting white head. Aroma is malty with grain, straw and slight toasted notes. Flavor is sweet with some lower bitterness. Body is watery and carbonation is low. The ned is dry and sticky.

DrGD (108) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Golden colour with white foam. Aromas of malts, some hoppy and yeasty notes. Taste is a bit metallic and watery, malts, hint of hops, to the sweet side. Boring.
