Holmen1 (4741) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2016
Flaske (thanks, Cimbasso!) delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag: klar lys gylden med kort skum. Aroma av kokte grønnsaker og sitronbrus. Smaken er heller ikke verdt å skrive mye om. Tynn, søtlig og med (heldigvis) svært kort ettersmak.

ZodiacM (796) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
Poured from the bottle. A clear light yellow coloured beer. Tastes a bit flowery, soft in taste, fresh, nice with a spicy dish. Nothing special. Forgettable

Typical mass produced lager. Has no taste, no aroma. At least it’s not unpleasant, untasty. A bit sweet, sparkling water.

ccex (1187) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2016
640 ml bottle pours a clear pale yellow with smallish white head and only a little lacing. Aroma is full of grass and lemon; a bit skunky. Taste is on the sweet side at first with a sour and metallic finish. It gets worse as it warms up, tasting like sour apples. Still this is hoppier than I expected from a pale lager and quite drinkable when cold. Unfortunately, its body is light and watery. Fortunately, it only cost me $2 at the local Korean supermarket. Not horrible, but I would try this again only to wash down some spicy Korean food.

labeerinthum (510) - Milano, ITALY - APR 27, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rimanda molto al mais e un po’ all’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma va in rapida dispersione, con bollicine medie e carbonazione bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini, con carbonazione persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è snello. L’amaro è appena percepibile, con una punta di aspro. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il finale è acido. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca rimanda a pane, mais e orzo.
