UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 (bottle). A clear golden complexion with dissipating head. Mild malt aroma. Flavor is watery with mild malt. Not very distinctive. A Dutch PBR. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pityu (622) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle - Clean golden colour, medium white head, poor retention. Malty aromas with some grassy hops. Light malty sweetness with some bread and wet hay, low grassy and flowery hops. Light body, average carbonation, watery mouthfeel, dry finish. Standard european lager, drinkable.

Maersk (137) - MOLDOVA - AUG 10, 2016
Clear golden, small head, carbonation. Smells malts, a little bit of wet grains and some honey. Crisp, tastes sweet malts with light bitter finish. Not bad.

holdleder (318) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2016
45 cl. flaske med patent-låg. 5,0 %. Knaldgrøn flaske. Lys pilsner. Lidt speciel lugt fra øllen. Ikke noget specielt, men dejligt læskende.

lokis333 (375) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 29, 2016
Clear golden color with large but weaker foam. Aromas of crisp light grassy hops with hint of lemon zest and light herbs (Still very much like ordinary pale lager with but more pronounced aromas without off aromas). Palate, mediumbody leaning towards fuller body with smooth texture and leaving short light bit watery hoppy finish. Taste, light bitter of hops, herbs, bitter grass with hints of hay and light malt. Overall, surprisingly not bad and not pee water? As much as not a fan of pale lagers this one out of large comertial lagers was best thus far.

Zlotta (1913) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2016
0.3 l bottle from local AH, best before January 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, quite grassy aroma of straw, sweet malts and some spicy hops. Sweetish, slightly bitter and quite grassy taste of straw, sweet malts and grains, followed by a short, slightly bitter and moderately grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay!

GoddamnNoise (42) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUL 24, 2016
Aroma: very light aromas of something i can’t identify, maybe a very very light aroma of hops, sweet malts. Appearance: light golden color, average white thickness on the head. Head made of medium sized and big bubbles. Clear Beer. Very low persistence. No lacing. Taste: almost no taste of beer, it’s like soda with a bit of sweet flavor. I can’t even tell what the flavor is: a hint of sweet malt and no much more. Medium Sweetness, very light bitterness, no sourness. Palate: very light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, very light and short sweet finish. Overall: Bad beer, i wouldn’t call name this as a beer. The only thing i’ll remember is the nice bottle.

wojownik17 (233) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Zielona, charakterystyczna butelka 450 ml, z oplombowanym zamknięciem swing-top. Jeden z flagowych przedstawicieli gatunku lager jasne, właściwie podchodzi pod pilsnera - piwo premium. Dobrze smakuje schłodzone, orzeźwia, przyjemne goryczka - dobitniej czuć ją w smaku niż aromacie. Niewielkie nachmielenie, duże nasycenie CO2. Godne polecenia!

Faktiskt är jag lite förtjust i denna. Trots att det är en ljus lager så är det rätt bra bett.

Can. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Grassy and earthy hoppy aroma. Malty and grainy flavor. Light hoppy.
