exeter (362) - calgary, Alberta, - MAR 13, 2014
Light in flavour. Sweet and slightly malty. Too thin to be very enjoyable. Icelandic Rolling Rock? bland

AgentAle (793) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Aroma is basic sweet malts, honey and light caramel. Medium sulphur. Taste is light basic sweet malts with slight bland bitterness on finish. Slight honey presence on finish but not overly complex. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a clear yellowish gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet pale malts, fruity esthers and very little earthy hop aroma. Taste is sweet pale malts light bitterness and some fruity esthers... Typical lager but definitely you can notice a higher craft quality.

tom10101 (3103) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Can (500 ml). From Andrew, thanks! Clear golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of grains, herbal notes, light sweetness and apples. Taste is also of grains, light sweetness and green apple. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Bland. A tad too sweet and off green apples presence.

JulienHuxley (3480) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2014
Can at Tom’s. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, light dusty hop, honey, smells kind of sweet and sticky, light apple. Taste is sweet, light green apple, honey, grainy, with lingering husky lightly astringent finish. Palate is light, light carbonation. Not very good, even for an industrial lager.

vadie (804) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Jaune pâle avec un tęte du taille moyenne qui rétréci rapidement. L’arôme des céréales et un peu d’houblon florale (mais trčs peu). Le goűt des céréales avec une finition fraîche. Super inoffensif. Pas vraiment mauvais ni bonne mais si j’avais besoin de choisir je dirais plutôt bonne. Facile ŕ boire. Une bonne bičre ’session’ d’été.

Can to pint glass Lets do this right. It was a gift, but I think I’m getting a coutry tick, so why not. I KNOW what I’m getting here. Smells like apple juice and wheat. Looks great...clear yellow with a huge creamy white head. Taste is crap. Or closer, urine. I’m sure glad its cold. I get a bit of the apple juice, a lot of wheat and hay. This sucks. But if I were on the lash on the way to a football match, then sure, I’d drink this. It isn’t really any worse than any other ’premium’ lagers I’ve had from Macros.

Senap (390) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Enligt etiketten är den mĺngfaldigt prisbelönt. Svĺrt att skilja frĺn andra internationella lagets. Helt enkelt lite trist.

Nisse666 (4504) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle at en Öl och Whiskeymässa 2014, 2014-04-11 Göteborg AR: citrus, caramel, bread AP: clear golden, no head F: fizzy, cardboard box, wee warming feeling (probably rated this one to high?)

ljthiessen (516) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Can. Pale yellow pour, slightly cloudy with a white head. Grainy aroma. Flavour is grainy malt with a lightly crisp hop edge. Average mouthfeel for a lager. Not the worst lager I've had, but I wouldn't drink it again.

Can, on the plane en route to Iceland aboard IcelandAir. Medium gold colour, short lived head. Sweet grainy and featureless.
