Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a thin head on a clear light straw body. The aroma is dry grains and honey. The taste has a slight metallic bitterness, a touch of honey and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Fine.

ferrinche (72) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - APR 10, 2016
Una lager muy simplona, muy plana, no hay nada que haga que no te olvides de ella a los dos minutos. Le falta cuerpo, espuma inexistente, un regusto artificial. No destaca nada con respecto a sus competidoras lager mediterráneas.

First visit to this site (and what a find this site is) so I hope my rating is good enough to get people to try this beer. I am in Cyprus and want a localish beer. Cold, crisp, but with flavour I want more of, I think this is the best beer of Greece or Cyprus I have experienced. Well done chaps!

tmrmwel (1699) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Can. Pours clear light golden, with a small, and quickly receding head. Aroma is light bitter zesty hops, and sweet malty notes of grain, toffee and honey. Average body, with medium carbonation. Flavour is zesty hops with citrusy notes, as well as some light roasted malts with grain, toffee and honey. Nice and drinkable, and a rather decent pale lager actually.

Lager com boa quantidade de lúpulo, corpo médio porém espuma não consistente. O conjunto é fraco, esperava mais.

midovark (437) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2016
0.33 bottle. Nice golden color with a thin head after pouring, but nothing special is aroma. A bit sweetness in the taste. Totally regular lager.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle - Clear yellow colour, small white head disappears quickly. Weak grainy aromas with low hop scent. Taste is malty sweetness, some hay, cornflakes, low hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, a bit watery finish. Not good.

Pours clear golden with very thin white head that quickly disapears. Bose is sweet malts. Aromas are sweet malts, caramel. Rather low carbonation, low body. Very short finish. Watery and flat, not really pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
