MiP (15028) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2016
Can, 4.2%. Weak dusty aroma. Clear yellow colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is watery and bready with a mild, floral, aromatic hop note. Clean enough but with a slightly unpleasant bitterness.

BlackBeerPG (242) - Darien, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Taste: Mild, citrus, grainy, thin, with a mellow nose. Pale gold semi clear with large foamy head. Lite body with a bit salty notes. Not a real robust lager

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 26, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, clear palish yellow color, aroma of malt and sawed wood with just a spicy hint, sweet fruity flavor with just a hint of sourness and a very light bitterness. Not too good, too sweet.

Clear yellow, white foam head. Typical aroma and taste, just a pale lager, but from a new country to me. (Sliema 201604)

Can pour, thanks Andrew for sharing this awesome beer from your dad, this was brought back from its original country. Golden crisp pour thin soft white head, malty aroma, tast is a little flat, but still has some bit on the tongue. this beer is not old at all even though it is 5 years past the sale by date, amazing how this has held up so well to what it was back in the day, hasn’t lost a ounce of tast, and that being said this beer is absolut shit!

12 Oz can poured, as part of my bringing beers out of hiatus series. Huge thanks to my Dad for thinking of me while in Malta. Even though it was 5 years ago. This is clearly past it’s prime, and then some. All natural though! This Ottawa be good. Pours a less than healthy piss golden color with an amount of carb and foam head that surprised the hell out of me. Plastic grain aroma. Typical international lager, a little flat, but not much. Plastic linger. Fun tick. Glad I get to share this gem!

Very light and soft carbonated golden lager. Good for sunny days. Nothing special.
