A plain regular basic lager with not much to say than it is a good refreshment in summer.

Thin, watery, slight metallic taste, slightly unpleasant on the palate, I suppose this is meant to be drunk straight from the bottle, but I don’t see how this is a "premium beer"

Corny but relatively clean tasting lager with a sweet finish. Just about bearable if hardly worthy of its premium marketing tag.

0,33l bottle not bad light hoppy aroma, why is caled gold if it is yellow pale...frothy, white foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, a bit sharp bitterness, not very smooth, medium body, average carbonation, I dont know, strange flavour, nothing exiting

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2011
Clear, light golden straw colour with a two-finger sized, bubbly white head that quickly halves in size and finally settles as a thin, soapy lacing.
Almost no noticeable aroma from this one other than a slight hint of corn and a background skunky bitterness.
There is a little corn that matches the nose and what initially comes across as citrus quickly turns out to be a skunky, bitter finish. I’m not too impressed with this one, although to be fair I wasn’t expecting much.
Thin & light bodied but not quite watery, there is a slight tang to the beer as well with a dry finish.

This one is a pretty basic, mass-produced pale lager that I would rate as about average for the style. It doesn’t have much of a smell or taste really although it’s not quite as bland as some others I have tried & it is drinkable if not enjoyable. Skunky at the end though.

Bottled version. Pale gold with a thickish big bubbled white head. Stale aroma, someone mentioned cardboard, it’s there! Medium bodied with a hint of malt and some citrus hops in there somewhere. Had worse, thats about the best I can say, maybe with a BBQ on a hot day.....dont think I’ll buy again.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
On tap. Sparkly, but that feeling goes away too quickly. A bit rounder than many other pale lagers, but in general too much influenced by the characteristics of industrial beers.

Awful piss water that is so bad it has to be served nearly frozen to be able to drink it.

emartell (289) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2012
Aroma casi nulo con ligeros toques florales. En cuanto a la apariencia, color amarillo pálido, corona de espuma ligera pero de larga retención, carbonatación alta. En cuanto a boca, las primeras notas identificadas son ligeramente amargas y refrescantes. Al paladar lo refrescante se hace notar. Al principio destacan ligeros sabores amargos, mismos que posteriomente dejan sabores dulces al paso por la garganta. El final es ligero y frutal. En general una cerveza refrescante y diferente, aun que para nada de las mejores Pale lager que existen.

300ml bottle. Pretty standard mas market offering but I have tasted worse. A bit too smooth but quite tasty for the genre.
