Atom (1882) - 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 (1814) - 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.

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.

jamaty (1445) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada clara con dos dedos de espuma. Aroma escaso, algo metálico. Bastante carbónica, poco cuerpo y sabor poco marcado, con final metálico. Pilsen barata, bebible y poco más.

sudomorph (946) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
500ml can. Pours a crystal clear, golden yellow with a one finger, white head. Aroma has hints of sweet grain, traditional hops, and lager yeast. Taste is balanced. Grains, touch of hops, and some fruity yeast. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall a lightly flavoured, refreshing lager.

Teran (193) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAY 12, 2015
German lager, but made in Serbia. Typical european lager without any qualities to remember. If it is summertime and the beer is cold, everything is ok, but only under that circumstances. The price of 0.5 Euro is adequate to its quality.
