Definitely don’t like this one. Yellow color with white head, aroma is malty. In the taste, there is something I really don’t like, but I can’t define clearly what it is. Something boggy.

kaser (2697) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured from bottle at Bucaneros in Panama. Golden and pretty bubbly glass. Standard lager aroma. Had to drink half before rating. Initial thought was gross but I thought it would grow on me and it did. Nothing great but second half went down easy - not bad for what it is

0.5l can right from Greece. Aroma steady, not hopy. Not bitter, some hopiness on tongue in the aftertaste.

Quite an amber coloured lager. Little head and little carbonation. Some sweetness. Fairly enjoyable for a lager.

arsol (550) - NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
Lys brun/gul farge med tynt hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. En helt ordinær lager. aroma: noe malt... medium med kullsyre. Ellers ikke noe å berette om denne.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle 500ml (Athens)
Clear golden color, small white head. Harsh malty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Harsh, sweet malty, some citric (tart) notes. Not much hops to talk about.

Niksko (336) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours a light golden with a thin white head. Nose is very slight citrus and a bit of a lactic tang. Taste is citrus and cardboard. Not great, but actually not horrendous.

Byrovios (1) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 26, 2013 does not count
Πολυ καλη !!! Το άρωμα της δεν σου μένει τόσο καθώς μιλάμε για μια λαγκερ αλλα η γεύση της ειναι υπεροχή !!! Γιαυτο κιόλας Heineken kai Amstel ειναι πια χαμηλά στις προτιμήσ&# των ελλήνων !

djoeye (1485) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2013
330ml can from a superfriend Rune ratebeer Tromsø. Quite tall head, "deutschhh", pale straw body. Foam fades and leaves some dots inside the mug. Some hay and cardboard scents. Tastes lots of grains and alcoholic malts. Some bitterness in the mouthfeel, so I guess there is some hops. Faint malts at the end, and a bitter twist of hops too. Not too bad, but I would look further.
