Bottle. It poured a clear sparkling yellow with a light golden hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished almost completely but did have some retention throughout thus producing some fair lacing. The aroma was pretty basic for a lager. The nose was crisp with a mild grain malt, a moderate grassy hop and a somewhat barnyard scented yeast with a light odor of wet cardboard. It tasted very mildly sweet and acidic at first, and then became slightly bitter with a mild crisp hoppy flavor at the end that stayed with you just long enough to put a nice finish on this brew. Mouthfeel was nice and light in body and a bit watery in texture with a nice light creaminess. The carbonation was quite lively, almost fizzy. Overall as I stated before, it is a nice crisp hoppy lager. One I have drank in the past and will again in the future. Very Drinkable!!

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 (129) - - 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.

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 (1589) - 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.

Bottle pour. Aroma and taste are basic pale lager. Something unpleasant in the taste though.
