Keg at BST Festival, Hyde Park. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is dry grainy and lightly grassy with notes of straw and starch. Taste is also dry crispy and lightly sweet with some starch, grass and straw. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

Tap. Jasnozlote piana biala mala. Wodniste o niklym chmielowym aromacie. Kiepskie. Z puszki smakuje jeszcze gorzej

This was one of my go-to beers back in the days when I knew next to nothing about beers. Next time I see it I will give it a try for old time’s sake, and update this rating.

midovark (438) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - FEB 12, 2016
Drank straight from the 0.5 l can. Medium bodied, average carbonated. Bitter in taste. Average, but I was fine with it.

davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Tap. Pour is gold with a thin head, little discernible aroma. Taste is sightly sweet but watery, thin and of nothing in particular. You can drink this, but it basically tastes like nothing

thanatosti (1435) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2016
50 cl. can @ home, gift from Rick. Drank from the can but undoubtedly a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Grainy cardboard aroma. Watery taste and finish. Just another macro lager.
