Shared 330ml can with Mat (cheers minutemat) on 7th Sep 2016. Had this on tap in Malta a few times (many years ago), so half knew what to expect: a semi-decent Med Lager. Golden, clean and clear, short lived white head. Fairly sweet throughout, grainy/corny and not unpleasant. Hot weather beer. Scored objectively.

330ml can @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Sep 16, courtesy of myself. Bought from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Sweetcorn aroma. Taste is highly oxidised with tired malts, sweetcorn, dank cardboard. Not great, but it is a Malta tick.

Typical eurolager but without noticeable disadventages. Everyone in Malta drink that stuff.

TedE (985) - 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.

dnicolaescu (1977) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 12, 2016
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 (69) - 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 (155) - 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
