MarkoNm (403) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head. There is slight skunk right after opening, later some malty aroma. A slightly sweet start, balanced body, some bitterness in the finish. Metallic feel in the aftertaste. Drinkable and not that bad at all.

tom10101 (2614) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). My 2nd Flag Speciale after the one from Ivory Coast. Clear golden with a small persistent white head and some lacing. Aroma is grainy with sweetness, metallic notes and vegetables. Taste is moderately sweet with grains, vegetables, metallic notes and mild floral notes. Weak body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky finish. I don’t remember much about the one from Ivory Coast, but my rating is similar so they are quite consistent wherever they produce this one. Not very good, even for a Pale Lager and/or a country tick.

vipinvelp (2048) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Clear yellow with decent lasting white foam head. Looks bit carbonated. Aroma is barley, so is taste. Bit sweet. Not the best beer, but I guess when you drink it in contry it is much better. (Paris 201402)

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - DEC 28, 2013
Bière blonde très pâle presque transparente. Rien au nez, pas grand chose en bouche, en cherchant bien on y décelle un peu d’amertume et de malt. De l’eau coupée à la bière ...

Bottle from Foxo - ta. Looks great. Golden. Head. Not too much flavour. I’ve had worse I suppose. Almost refreshing.

rosenbergh (6480) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. BL/C. BB 01/02/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Malt, metal and sweetness in a very boring aroma. The flavour is malt, sugar, mild stale hops and paper. No good.

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Country #83. Bottle by mail order from saveur-biere.com. Pours very well - nice thick head on this pale lager. Smells decent for the style - simple yeast aroma, no nasty skunkiness. So far, so good... Taste is creamy nothing, like a Worthington. Yes, it’s water with a nice head.

Appearance: Clear golden color with a fine frothy white head. Ok lacing on a plastic glass.
Aroma: Mild malty and mild fruity and some cabbage.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild round malty, mild fruity and some cabbage in the back.
Overall impression: Far better than expected. A fine saturday with Visionthing at Olaf Ryes Plass park in Oslo.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Easy going lager with a skunky background. Some malt, hints of rice and even some flowers. Simple, bit strange but drinkable.
