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)

YantarCoast (941) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 28, 2016
Pint on tap at the Kings Arms in Cookham. Pours pale yellow with a small but lasting white head. Aroma is grain and skunk. Taste is light sweet, water, corn. Not great.

ben4321 (5685) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Draft at Hotel bar, Marriott, London. Clear gold with a really nice, creamy, lasting head. Pale malts and grass, finishes fairly bitter. Not much going on here, but it is crisp and clean. Good for a hot day chugger.

Grumbo (1340) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Historic rating, draft at Fat Cat, Ipswich. Pours light gold with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of light hop. Light bitterness and sweetness. Crisp, light body. Prefer this to regular Beck’s.

Towey1989 (1804) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Keg at Poundpub, Leek. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, cereal, subtle banana and a hint of grassy hops. Taste of grain, cereal, subtle banana, a little metal and very subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, grainy bitterness in the finish. Not a bad lager, just really boring. Surprisingly smooth though.

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

trapped (2231) - 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.
