MrHangover (2994) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2015
Botte. Pours a clear golden beer with a nice white head on top. Aroma is malty, yeasty, slightly spiced and fruity. Flavor is very thin bodied, some sweetness going on there and a big malty base. Reallt thin, soft carbonation and virtually no aftertaste. Kinda dull and boring.

Cunningham (5154) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2015
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Herbal and malty aroma. Ok body and an ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Malty, mild fruity, mild citric and herbal hoppy flavor. This is a nice and easy drinkable lager.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Half-litre flip-top bottle from Beers of Europe: BBD 30 Jan 15. Poured into my old Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall glass tankard on 10 Nov 14. Very pale golden body, clear, clean and bright: on top a full white head that soon fell away to a wisp and collar. Almost odourless, hints of grain and herbal notes if you sniff hard enough. The taste is semi-sweet grains, again herbal notes, but with a hop bitterness just below the surface. Refreshing and crisp feel to the brew, carbonation bubbles rising throughout the tasting. Decent, pity about the head and lack of nose.

eduardovl (999) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear pale yellow color forming a medium and bubbled white head. Low retention but a thin layer is quite persistent in the surface and some nice lacings are formed and left S: Classic German Lager in the nose, very grainy, sweet malts mainly. Also very bready. Flowery hops in the end T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet grains and bready Lager yeast. End is made of mild and bit citrus hops bitterness M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Bready and grainy aftertaste O: Good drinkability. A good German Lager which might be a pleonasm :) [ BA Review @ 11/4/2012 ]
