VsXsV (3922) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2012
500 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, pale yellow/light gold liquid with small to medium, dense white head. Aroma of cereal malt, fruity yeast esters, noble/floral/light earthy hops and bread. Taste is dry, light to medium bitter with notes of cereal malt and noble hops. Really crisp and refreshing. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation and small bubbles. Quite enjoyed this one, simple and well made. Not "in your face" at all.

Bottle, pours clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is mild with malts, some citrus. Taste is like aroma. A bit better than an ordingary eurolager but not much

Golden colour. Dense head. Aroma is marshmallows, fresh leaves and grass. Flavour starts off sweet and malty then turns dry and chalky. Tastes like an avarage lager.

seritomi (358) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 5, 2012
Alap sárga, snassz habbal. Illata a tipikus száraz német stílusú komlóval, komlózással. Íze se lep meg olyan, mint a többi. Enyhe furmintos aroma malátával. Savanykás közép végén tartós keserűség és élesztős lezárás. Olyan nyári germán sör. Én elfelejtem.

Ingen stor doft. Smaken är söt malt och inte så mycket mer. Trevlig frisk till mat och funkar helt klart som en lätt förfriskning. Men nån stor smak har den inte ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale with nice head. Aroma hops. Taste hops. Light or no body. Nothing special like most lager. Aroma and taste diminish after a while and leaves the drinker something more watery. Only drink to get drunk.
