Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 5, 2006
4.9% ABV export version Light bread aroma with toffee and mild coffe touches. Its head is white and frothy and though it dimishes quickly, it leaves a fair lacing over a murky, light yellow body. Its flavor is initially sweet but ends bitterly and shortly and somewhat with a metallic aftertaste. It is light and slightly dry with a soft carbonation

Tranquillity (1875) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2007
UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Can, 4,7%. Clear yellow colour, small white head with medium bubbles. Disappears quickly. Nice, full aroma for a lager. Barley, hey comes to mind. Strong hoppy flavour, actually a pleasant surprise.

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 .

Grzesiek79 (4028) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 11, 2013
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.

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.
