TedE (899) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2016
Sydney’s suburbs are a great source of random country beers....Malta! 330ml bottle into schooner glass. Slightly hazy pale amber beer with two finger white head. Medium carbonation, tiny bubbles. Soft aroma of cardboard and honey. Sharp bitter taste, bitter finish with earthy hops and nettles. A little sweetness sits right at the end of a lingering finish. Certainly is astringent! Maybe too much.

SAMPLE at a tasting. Clear yellow golden, white head. sweet malts and bread, grassy, solid herbal bitterness. No industrial harshness. A top-notch macro-lager.

sunstoneale (60) - MOLDOVA - JUL 10, 2016
Amazingly clear appearance. Aroma of cardboard and some dank hops. Tastes like wet grains, has some muddy white bread and dank hop bitterness. A nice beach lager when consumed cool on a hot day.

Maersk (130) - MOLDOVA - JUL 10, 2016
Medium fuzzy head. Clear golden. Smells wort, malts, no hops. More grains in the taste, some hoppy bittetness. So-so. Not refreshing

0,5l can shared with wiosna, brought by her father from Malta. Pretty ordinary lager but nothing wrong with it. Thanks!

WingmanWillis (130) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle from Circular Quay in Sydney. Pours clear yellow gold with a decent white head. Grass and malt dominate the nose. Taste is fairly bland with it being malty with a little grass. Not much doing really.

Bov (11768) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 6, 2016
@Il-Gzira, Malta - pale and clear yellow beer with a modest head retention; paperboard and grains hit the nose; medium-bodied, a bit tart and bitter; short papery finish - cheap stuff

heavy (2665) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 1, 2016
Jul. ’15. A 0.33 l can, thanks Marko! Clear golden colored with a small head. Hay grainy aroma with a touch of hops. Flavor was lightly bitter, lightly sour herbal and also grainy. Medium body with shorter paper finish finish. An average pale lager, could be much worse.
