Rich honey and toffee nose. Hazy amber, fine floaties, medium head with poor retention. Toffee on the front, more of a sweet grassy hay on the back. Obvious quality British malts. I found this bottle in my car. How it got there is a bit of a mystery to me. It must have been there for months. I expected this to be awful, but I thoroughly enjoed it. Excellent!

Pershing (508) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours hazy gold from a 14.9 oz. can. Small white head that sticks around for a while. Sweet malt and a little hop aroma. Slightly bitter with lemon on the first drink but mellows out thereafter. Smooth lingering finish. This would make a decent session beer.

5.0% hazy gold colour with a thin head, low in aroma, unlager like fruity taste.

I got a can of this in Tokyo. Not my finest day. Sort of overly malty and oxidized. Smells gross. Don’t drink this in Tokyo.

14.9 oz can purchased at Royal in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a mostly clear golden with a slight tangerine orange to it. Egg white head is lasting, coats the glass with nice lace. The aroma is mildly sweet malt grains, a hint of toast and faint grass in the back. The taste is straight forward lightly sweet cereal grain, along with a drying grass to the finish. As it warms, a touch of herbal is added to the sweetness. The palate is light to medium bodied, active carbonation, and the dry finish. Simple, though clean and fresh tasting. Easy drinking beer.

reebtogi (5395) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
440ml can pours a pale straw color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is predominantly hay and grass with a hint of cereal grains. Taste is a grassy bitterness with a mild malty sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Only a slight bit better than your typical macro lager.

Fair lager, feels a little flat but still contains lots of taste with a yeast hop aroma.

thegreenrooster (3848) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pour is a dark gold with a large white head. Aroma is a decent maltyness. Flavor is lager malts and a little watery. Nothing really bad about this, lager bland is about it . You could drink a lot of this and not get tired of it.

Not a terrible export lager, has a very pleasant malty flavor that is a nice change of pace from what I’ve had lately. Toasty caramal notes amidst the slightly earthy tones. Overall pleasant, like that it comes in a slightly taller can at 14.9 fl oz.

Bottle - average size foamy head, medium straw color, pretty standard Euro lager aroma and flavor - corn, malt, very mild hops - pretty basic here
