EithCubes (5197) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Review No. 300. Beautiful green ornamental bottle. Rich golden pour, lively carbonation evident, soapy/airy white head. Smells of sweet malt with a hint of grass, surprisingly not skunked. Watery but good bitterness, clean, grassy, slightly malty. Harsh with large gulps, not so with sips. A little boring, Iíll concede, but this particular bottle was by no means bad.

artyom (629) - Osijek, CROATIA - MAY 5, 2015
0.5l bottle. Golden color with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is malty, honey and herbal. Taste is sweet. Overall itís smooth and easy drinable lager, but itís pretty boring.

ordybill (535) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
The look of it is really nice, you have that nice carbonation. A yellow color. The smell of it is not really that strong. Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Malt and grain Appearance- Pours a clear golden color with a small white head Taste- Heavy grain flavor, not bad Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- Not bad, i was surprised that it wasnít skunky. Most Euro green bottles have that aroma and flavor. this was clean

bavarian81 (75) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Pours a clear deep gold color. Aroma is mostly light malt. It certainly has a pleasantly crisp mouthfeel, but thereís not much going on in the flavor. I mostly get the faint taste of light bread and a little bit of hoppiness in the finish. Which I guess is okay for a pale lager, but it leaves a bit to be desired.

blackflag321 (554) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2015
Poured from bottle. Clean, light gold. Light, sweet, hint of bitterness. Hint of malt. Like many pale lagers, just hints of flavor. Pun aside, itís an okay lager.

Tyche (5) - seoul, SOUTH KOREA - APR 22, 2015 does not count
Pours a clear golden color with a white head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of hay, grass. It is light in both sweetness and bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Itís exactly typical lager.

AleRider78 (131) - - APR 19, 2015
Poured an average size head which leaves quickly enough. Lots of carbonation, ok lacing. Very light golden appearance. Aromas of wheats, grains and light hops. Lightly malted flavours, not much hops present in taste. Light watery mouthfeel. Minimal aftertaste. Not bad.

mariuszek (343) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 11, 2015
From the can. Clear golden, white head and good lacing. Aroma and taste of malt and a bit of grassy hops. Bitter finish, medium carbonation. Good lager.

Jabah (166) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This is often sold along with the domestice beers, but it is better. I wouldnít say it is a premium beer, but for cheap $6 a six-pack stuff, itís not bad at all. I used to like it a lot better than I do now (mainly since Iíve been introduced to microbrews and premium imports). The classic pop-top bottle is fully "old skool" as well. Has a golden-yellow appearance, with decent carbonation and medium white head. Sort of a cross between a lager and a pils.

Holmen2 (1600) - NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Shared 1,5 liter bottle at Vaaland Bryghus 10.04.15. Clear, pale straw colour. Off-white head and lacing. Aroma of continental hops and grass. Similar taste. Perhaps a bit sweet, but otherwise OK. Good drinkability.

Vestlake (192) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle pour. Aroma and taste are basic pale lager. Something unpleasant in the taste though.
