exeter (438) - calgary, Alberta, - MAR 13, 2014
Light in flavour. Sweet and slightly malty. Too thin to be very enjoyable. Icelandic Rolling Rock? bland

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with carbonation. Faint mealy aroma. Dryish mealy taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy fruity aftertaste with faint buttery notes. Very low on flavour, but generally OK. (0.5l draft at Krua Siam, Akureyri.)

Travlr (14471) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Saga lounge beer in Reykjavik. Clear golden color, white coca cola head. Aroma of paper and cardboard. Taste is bitter paper and lemon. My 50th Iceland rate.

BeerandBlues2 (10447) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is sweet grain malt, light spicy hops and clean. Flavor is sweet grain malt, light spicy hops and bitterness with a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

AgentAle (921) - 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 (1427) - 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 (3383) - 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 (3807) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - 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 (909) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Jaune pâle avec un tête du taille moyenne qui rétréci rapidement. L’arôme des céréales et un peu d’houblon florale (mais très peu). Le goût 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 à boire. Une bonne bière ’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 (410) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Enligt etiketten är den mångfaldigt prisbelönt. Svårt att skilja från andra internationella lagets. Helt enkelt lite trist.
