tbonde (194) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
33bottle and draught@Blue Lagune, Iceland@appox 5 degrees C. Pours golden yellow with white head. Aroma is light, of bread and malt. Standard lager a little on the sweet and malty side, but not without taste and a crisp bitterness from the hops at the end. Not very interesting, but a good thirstqencher. A well balanced lager without any off tastes or other vices.

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 (1543) - 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.
