Pours a translucent pale yellow with a one finger foamy white head. Nose is bready, mildly sweet, lager feel, hay, bit old. Flavor is musty, bready, wet hay. Meh.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Pretty much as expected - just another pale lager like thousands of other examples around the world. Probably does the trick to quench a thirst on a hot day on home turf. Some boiled vegetable. Otherwise dull but relatively inoffensive.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can shared at RSRIZZO’s winter gathering. Pours pale yellow with a small, fizzy white head, some retention with little lacing. Aroma is malty sweet with adjuncts and paper; DMS, diacetyl, corn, and rice notes. Flavor is bitter hop and grainy malt with corn and rice. Light bodied, medium carbonation, finish starts slick but goes dry.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2oz can (2009) into a plastic hotel glass. You know, my brother said he got this for $1.99 a six-pack, and it could be worse. Pours a creepy fake yellow with a small off-white head with not much aroma - typical pale lager stuff. The flavor tastes distinctly German lager to me, same malts and hops probably... or at least along those lines. Really could be worse for the price!

Can 33 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with some floating impurities and a white head. Sweet aroma of brewing cereal. Medium body, a little malt and a surprisingly decent hoppiness. 161209

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned. Thanks Anza! Clear golden colour with frothy white head. Pale malty aroma. Moussy mouthfeel, pretty malty with little hops noticed, and they’re kind of flavourful and outspoken for a pale lager. Not the average pale lager here, with elegant flavouring hops, and the same goes for the bittering, giving a solid but not overly bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250 ml bottle. From Malta. HHOK blind tasting. Thanks Jukka.
Clear golden colour with frothy average white head. Fruity malty aroma with some hoppiness but also some wet cardboard. Maltiness and bitterness in flavour. Bitterish aftertaste. Not bad for a Lager.

[Bottle] Pours a clear yellow color with a decent looking white head and good lacing. Some corn and light grains in the aroma. Not a lot going on in the taste as well. Somewhat dry and grainy with a musty finish. High carbonation level. Light bodied. Ehh... about what I expected.
