Crisp, clean, cold. Better than your average German macro lager but still uninteresting on the whole. Refreshing but unrefined.

floydian1 (1015) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 30, 2014
Widely available on tap in Hamburg. Golden colour with a medium white head. Nose and taste is sweet grainy malts and a touch of grassy hop bitterness. Slick medium body. Clean and simple.

4.2% ABV can from Tesco in Miskolc. Aroma corn and pretty strong puke.clear yellow to golden colour. Short lasting head. Taste is well what to say about fizzy metallic puke? Eh...

einherjar (47) - CROATIA - SEP 2, 2014
Can from supermarket (4,2% ABV) made in Serbia. Pale golden color, white fast disappearing head. Taste is slightly sweet, little bit metallic. Beer you can drink, but (probably) not enjoy it.

Romanian version, not sure it s the same as the original. Not much to say: Your usual pale lager, pretty refreshing when cold enough. Slightly better than other shitty lagers.

exeter (314) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Poured a little head that died off quickly leaving no lacing. The taste is a good balance between the hops and malt, though the overall effect is muted and the taste unremarkable. There was a heavy skunk smell that didn’t carry over to the taste, it’s ok

olio (6312) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
50 cl can.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Corn and pale malts on the nose, some mild hay notes also. Slick palate with slightly malty and grassy flavor. Very simple refreshing lager.

Freaky_tiki (587) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a shimmering gold with a one fingers sudsy cap that lasts no longer than 20 seconds. Was watching Germany grind themselves to a tie with Ghana in the World Cup & thought a brew from the Fatherland may just do the trick. This just ain’t the best choice for German brews. It’s a bland cookie cutter lager & doesn’t even come Klose to other brews I’m about to dig into.

mjs (4646) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
(Can from supermarket, 4.5% version, 20140619) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had metallicness and sweetness. Palate was light bodied with mediu, carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A thin flavoured and charcterless brew.
