375ml can brought over by my friend Bjorn! Nose is grainy, a grape note, and slightly sweet, kinda like Coors if I remmeber from having that available at my nephews. Clear gold, huge white head; flavor is grain and an ACTUAL bit of hop bitterness! Unusual in a pale lager. Looks like I am one of a very few (or only) US raters to try this! Wouldn’t be bad if I was working when it was 35 C outside and it was ice cold (what we in the US call a lawnmower beer)

This is the only lager in my village, if all the bottles are gone then I suffer a pint of this rancid tipple

trapped (1658) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 22, 2015
Can. Pours pale yellow with medium sized foamy white head, high carbonation, yeasty aroma, thin body, very little hops taste, abrupt finish. Not sure how it’s different from the regular Beck’s.

Oh dear. Beer for people who find beer challenging. Pat Boone’s version of "Tutti Frutti" springs to mind. Pale, sickly, too weak to defend itself. Why did I drink it? ’Cos it was there AFTER A PARTY This will not do, I need to prune my friends.

Sigmund (5989) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 On tap at The Last Post, Guernsey (in August 2014). ABV is 4%. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Some grassy notes in the aroma. Fairly bland flavour, but crisp and dry and unoffensive. A little hops in the finish.

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Can from Tesco. Clear Yellow, small 1 finger head. Slightly Skunky, with generic lager taste, faint grassy hops with touches of pine. Not great, not bad.
