KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a pale yellow with a large (2-3 finger) fizzy white head that diminished quickly and had poor lacing. The aroma was almost non-existent but did have a mild scent of a grain malt, a weak grassy hop and a moldy yeast with just a hint of caramel. The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty with a hint of caramel from the beginning to end and not much else. The flavor lasted a very short time with any aftertaste fading very quickly. Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with the texture being rather watery and having a fizzy carbonation. Overall a super light beer that did not have a lot of flavor.

Bottle at Jim leaves for Malaysia tasting @ ABCBeers. Clear golden pour. Aroma of cats piss, distinct clear bottle taste, grainy and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, thin and messy. Bad.

MarkoNm (1022) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 23, 2015
Pours a clear, yellow color, topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head. Skunky malty aroma, some grainy notes, not much else. Taste starts sweet and grainy, followed by some minimal bitterness and metallic feel in the aftertaste. Typical cheap (below)average lager. Well, new country at least.

John25 (868) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear yellow. Taste like sweet water with light grains, grass, and lemon. I added a lime because it’s awful and it came with it. High carb. Bland. Really bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bierkoning (10790) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle, thanks VipinVelp! Blonde. Grainy vegetable-like aroma and flavor. Some nutty bitterness. Apple, hints of orange. Almost medium bodied. Not good.

Douberd (2894) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2015
(Kalik) Bottle 355 ml clear glass bottle, from vipinvelp, many thanks! New country! Served into a shaker, ABV 5.2% Clear pale yellow colour on the body, small white head that disappears stright away. Lazy activity in the glass. Aroma of malts accompanied by some lemon notes, I think a slice of lime would compliment it quite well. Taste of malts, old apples, light hay. Thin body, high carbonation. One of those lagers that surely taste better in the country of origin.
