BeerAndPonies (153) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
500 ml can from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a bright golden hue with fine carbonation and a tall, milky head, leaving rings of fine lacing. Aroma is strongly grassy and earthy/herbal with apple juice and bready malt; flavor is apple-juicy sweetness, light random fruitiness, and faint malts with a mild lingering bitterness. Thin, finishes dryly. It’s a generally confused kind of lager, but not a terribly offensive one, either.

hrabren (568) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 7, 2016
Drank from 2 l Q-pack in the park. Some cereal in aroma. Metallic taste, fake aroma, some bitterness and dryness. Tasteless, nasty, cheap gas station feeling. Horrible!

nephirem (110) - CROATIA - APR 6, 2016
Clear, golden pour with minimal head. Taste is somewhat sweet and a bit grassy. Thin body, watery texture, strong carbonation. Taste is mostly bitter with some sweet notes. Aroma is pretty bland and unimaginative, typical lager with quite strong and unpleasant metallic mouthfeel. Overall, very poor.

phfyysik (384) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2016
Can 0,5L. Pours golden with white top. Nothing special in aroma, some malts, grain, dust. Taste is also quite similar with other wide produced lagers - very small amount of hops, some malts, grain, sweetness and sourness. Also something metallic jumps up. A bit too much carbonisation. Regular lager.

dnicolaescu (1624) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 25, 2015
CAN 50 CL. Clear golden, white head. Simple pils malt aroma, light minerals. Taste is just as simple malty, some carbonation, super-light hops. Thankfully, not off-flavours. Simple, but decent.

Atom (2039) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2015
500mL can pours a clear golden with a large white head. Sweet beery corn and malt aroma, light yeast. Taste of moderately sweet malt, light grassy hops and yeast. Kinda watery and light on flavor but not offensive.

MarkoNm (2121) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average sized white frothy head. Malty aroma with some minimal grainy notes. Taste starts sweet, light body perhaps a bit watery. Mild bitterness in the finish. Crisp and fresh. Not a bad lager.

DraftDodger (841) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
50 cl can with knight of Holsten proudly riding served in plastic cup at Beach restaurant near Virzpasar. Pours clear yellow with big white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam. Strong malty aroma with some acidic salty notes. Medium carbonation. Taste has a good balance between malty sweetness and bitterness. Nice lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Not fantastic but a solid lunchbeer for a simple dish of carp and vegetables.
