Douberd (1709) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle, 500 ml at Parga, greece. Into a lager glass. ABV 5% Very deep golden yellow colour on the body, two fingers of white, soapy head with good retention. No lacing left on my glass. It smells quite good, or at least better than the other available lagers here. Hints of fruits, red apples in particular. Very nice taste too, not too sweet, with the same red apples on the flavour as well and also notable on the aftertaste. Thin body, good carbonation, as much as it’s needed. Overall a pretty good beer, better than anything else available here in my opinion. Makes sense that it’s gaining in popularity.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle: Served in an Ikea taster (?): Medium sized, thick but lively and quickly changing into a thicker lacing, creamy white foamy head on top of an almost clear yellow colored beer. Aromas of malts, herbs, honey, light toast, bread and slight hints of caramel and leaves. Flavours of pils malts, herbs, hops, grains, bitters, some barleys, light floral, crisp... Not much but what it has of taste is pretty decent. Aftertaste is grassy, floral, malts and hips, light bitter. Medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, lightly medium bodied and a creamy texture. Nice, specially with this warm weather...

Slightly sweet, light larger. Pretty drinkable when cold but hardly bursting with interest.

MichaelAwesome (2993) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2013
Simple one with with high drinkability, some corn and malt in the aroma. Looks how it tastes without giving us anything special. The perfect piwo to kill your thirst maybe as it has a slight bittersweet finish. Alright.

McTapps (2997) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2013
Can. Clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of light malt and hops. Taste of ripe bitter hops, straw, cloves and malt. Easy to drink but just nothing special.

lagerette (30) - - JUN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours clear very light golden colour, no lacing very little head that does not keep. Strong carbonation, maybe needed in order to counterbalance the lightness in aromas and taste. Very little hops, a light lager. I can see why they serve it in Greece in frozen (!) glasses! The only way to drink this beer... I will not drink it again

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2013
Flaska. Guldfärgad med vitt skum som snart lägger sig. Doftar framför allt maltsötma, men också har den en örtighet och gräsighet. Det som lyfter smaken är honungen. Ger också en mjuk munkänsla, som gör den här ölen till något mer än en standardlager.

ofey (66) - Doncaster, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle source, pours yellowish with a relatively foamy head. Aroma is hoppy fruity and smells nicely malted. Very light on the palette and not much carbonation for a lager. Easy on taste. Good for the BBQ.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - sourced from Oddbins London Bridge. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold with a slight, foamy white head. Simple biscuits and cereal on the nose, dough, straw. Medium sweet flavor, very low bitterness, cereal, dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, further biscuits and cereal and straw. Classic, straight-ahead pale lager. Without difficulty I could polish off a few of these suckers.
