Pale gold as they come with no lasting head. Smell is of watery honey like malt. Very simple and lightly sweet. Taste is sweet with a hint of balancing bitterness. Very watery like a light beer. Simple no frills pale lager. Drinkable, but definitely unremarkable. At least it wasn’t skunked and contained no "off " flavors.

Appearance: pale yellow color. Little head. Aroma: malty. Slight sourness and metallic note from hops. Flavor: pale malts, some citric, some metallic and light to medium dryness. Palate: light body and watery texture. Medium carbonated. Some insipid and without character.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 14, 2007
Bottled(330ml). -from Utobeer, Southwark, London.
Pale yellow coloured, almost no head, bready nose, low carbonation. Mild malty and hoppy with notes of of corn. If we consider from which country does this beer come from, it’s quite good.

yngwie (14764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. (thx yespr, for sharing) Clear, yellow-golden body with a white head. Grainy and slightly fruity aroma and flavor, with a wee hoppy note in the aroma. Thin body. Not much of a finish. An utterly boring beer, but there’s nothing wrong with it. Quite quaffable. (071005)

mmmbeer (1287) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2007
From 11.2 oz bottle- poured standard transparent golden-yellow, fizzy head that disappears after a few minutes, aroma nonexistant. Hits the mouth with a pale thin body, hops ever so slightly noticeable on the finish. Better than most US macrobrews, but still not something to kill for.

Palidor19 (3036) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
tastes like a substandard attempt at a plae lager, with corn adjuncts and low malts. The rest is mild slickly sweet.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
The aroma is corn malt and strange hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s about what you would expect.
