White nice head, pale golden body. Scents just pale sweetness. Taste is bread, very pale malts, cardboard n metal. Watery. Macro light which needs about everything. [33cl can 2.7% b@K Citymarket Keminmaa 26-5-2014, T@Rating w Finn & Rune]

Rune (11369) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
330ml can shared with djoeye and Finn. Low white head resting on top of a clear, pale golden body. Hints of sweet pale malts on the nose. Momentary tasting notes of vegetables and grass. Cardboard to the ending. Thin bodied. Just about drinkable (Tromsø 04.06.2014).

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Can BB 02/2013. Clear pale yellow color, small white head, active carbonation. Sweet wort-like maltyness in the nose. Light bodied, crisp carbonation. Watery with sweet maltyness and wort. Harmless, lacks side flavors of the most low alco lagers.

Can from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, malts, corn and toast. Very watery body. Bittersweet finish with citrus and malts. Decent low alcohol brew.

FatPhil (14128) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 9, 2013
330ml can (S Market, Espoo)
From the can, ice cold from the fridge. Smells of nothing. Tastes of fizzy water. Taste dominated by carbonic acid. This might have some aroma or taste if it warms up, but that’s not what the brewer intended, and those tastes might not be any good any way. Drink this while working in the sun if you have an aversion to sugary pop, I guess. Not if you want beer.

Psytron (1950) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Drunk from can, 0.33 l. Smell of starch. Medium sweet, lively carbon. Aroma of grain, some bread, starch. Finish is rather short but does not end up being watery. Nicely balanced and light.

ectuohy27 (1034) - ESTONIA - FEB 26, 2013
Barely-there beer, everything subdued behind water, water, metal, a tad of carbonation and (egads) foam, and more water

omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
Canned, thanks oh6gdx! Clear pale yellow, brief head. Neutral fruity nose. Sweetish with light body and hard mouthfeel. Empty and slightly metallic. No bitterness. As dull as it gets, but at least the off flavours are relatively subtle.
