Gassy, and with very little taste to it, with a texture akin to something similar to shampoo.

Marduk (2526) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2014
Tap as "BO Light". Pale yellow color. Tiny head, disappears. Corny and malty aroma. Sweet, malty, grainy, faint paper in taste. Light body. Macro all over, but no really bad bad notes.

It has a average size white, foamy head. It doesn’t make much lace on the glass and fades to just a thin cap covering a golden colored body with good clarity and visible carbonation. The aroma has a pleasant floral and grassy hop character with a very nice mild malt note. It is crisp up front. Malt flavor is earthy and biscuity with a very mild sweetness that mixes with grassy and floral hops. The hops fade into the dry finish with nice mellow bitterness from the hops. Its body is light with a wet and fizzy texture from the carbonation. Overall it had a nice clean flavor and aroma with an easy drinking body and texture.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle with friends. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, squash, sweet malty nose. No herbs. Twangy corny flavor with a bit of apple. Not good.

arminjewell (5996) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pour out of bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grass, sour grain, hints of trash, slight dms. Taste is a mix of dms, sour grain, grass, slight corn, cereal, hay in there, finishing fairly dry, trashy, corn. Bleh.

vinivini (321) - BELARUS - FEB 12, 2014
Pale golden coour, white foamy head. Smells of grain, bread, grass. Similar aroma. Thin palate. The taste has notes of sweetness & sourness but no balance. Malty finish. Some hops in aftertaste. Not totally bead, just very average.

tbopslt (343) - New York, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Hazy off-yellow pour. Creamy head, bubbly. Musty aroma as previously stated. Hoppy taste. Too bitter for my taste. Not a fan.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
500ml can, kindly shared by djoeye. Pale golden body, airy white head, dotted spots on the glass. Pale malts and grass to the nose. Mixed taste of dough, wheat and lemon. Mild malt-fruity finish. Soft in the mouth. So and so Euro lager (Tromsø 17.01.2014).

stevoj (1977) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Musty, citrusy aroma, slightly sour, hazy golden body with small thick but creamy head. Taste is slightly better than the smell, with some of the malt coming through the funk. Aftertaste is more of the sour musty taste, but fades quickly. Not sure if this is supposed to taste like this, or the bottle is slightly skunked.
