ninecats (198) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Pours clear pale yellow with a big white head that dissipates slowly, leaving loads of lacings. Aroma is discreet corn, pale malt, grain, slight herby. Taste is mild, malty with bready feel, slight honey, finishes grainy with a slight hoppy feel. Light body, medium carbo, dry smooth texture. Like most München helles, this has a great drinkability with simplistic yet balanced flavours.

Ragnampiza (523) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 26, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pale golden yellow, crystal clear, with an average, creamy, moderately persistent bright white head. Grainy and malty nose, some cooked vegetables hints, slightly meaty and hoppy, some light paper notes in the background. Pleasent but subtle bitterness upfront, quite earthy and slightly peppery, more sweet toward the end. Quite clean even if the aftertaste is not very long. Honey and freshly cut grass in the finish. Average to lively carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Drinkable and easy to drink.

Padchenko (92) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2014
500ml, 5.1%. Golden with small-ish white head. Barley malt is dominant flavour - balanced, smooth and relatively light but pleasant-tasting lager. Some sweetness in the initial taste and some bitterness in the after-taste
