Brown 11.2 FL OzBottle, Label reads Bear Beer 5% ABV. A clear golden color with two fingers of white frothy head that goes away fast,lots of carbonation. Aroma of slightly skunky citrus hops and a lightly roasted malt . Flavor is lightly bitter,a bit of skunk,a splash of lemon ,some hay, a bit of malt for balance,by far not the best Lager I’ve ever had,but it’s crisp,clean and refreshing, a fun try .

Przeciętniak, ale fajna za to puszka z białym niedźwiedziem. Smak zwykły i trochę jakby rozwodniony, słaba piana. No ale za to jest choć troszkę goryczkowe i nie jest słodkawe. Co mnie cieszy przy degustacji jasnego lagera

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Can 0,33L. Clear golden colour with small white head and lively carbonation. Light aroma of bready malt, hay, grain and hops. Moderate bitter taste, light to medium body, a little crispy. Typical Euro-lager, but drinkable, anyway.

Aroma sweeter than most lagers . It did looked fine . As often happens in beer world the beer showed up nothing but plain sugary style .

larsga (5965) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2008
Smallish white head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Dense impure butterscotch aroma. Sweetish burnt buttery taste with mealy caramelly notes and traces of vegetables. Soft, slick, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry grassy chalky impure buttery hop aftertaste. Not so good, too heavy on the butter. (0.5l can, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

Yellow with a small white head. Grainy sweet malt aroma with a little diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with diacetyl and an odd herbal note

Can 50cl. @ home.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grian, molasses. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. For me a cheap pale lager just borring but not bad. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20090131]

(bottle - 330 ml) Pale straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and dry with grainy and corny notes. Some dry hops. Flavor is mild and sweet. Some very light hops and grass come through at the end, but mainly it tastes like a light pils.

In Sweden as Bjørne Bryg Dansk Øl (4.5%) - someone please beermail me if this is at the wrong place. Thanks to a friend too. Yellow body, small white head. Sweet-salty malty-herbal nose. Sweetish grainy nose, ordinary but nice enough, some dust. More of the same in the taste, sweetish grainy malt, but with some light acidity all around and some light bitterness. Meh, not perfect but a serviceable pale lager.

500 ml can - $.84 apiece at Trader Joes. Pours cliear, light golden with a large white head that diminished fairly rapidly. Sweet malty, adjunct aromas with a light soapiness and hop scent. Almost sickly sweet lager flavor, definite adjunct taste yet still watery, with grassy hops and a lingering tart finish. Light body and tickeling carbonation. Overall - not so good... But what did I expect from a cheap imported pale lager.
