Big white head shrinks unevenly with big holes from burst bubbles. Copper body. Sweet rubbery caramel malt aroma with notes of grain. Sweet caramel taste with earthy, rubbery notes. Touches of grassy hops. Dry, faintly metallic caramel malt aftertaste, slightly roasty. It’s OK. (0.568l can.)

FatPhil (8581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Yet another mass produced pale lager. Very similar to the III, just with slightly less water. So you do get some bitterness and malt, but not enough to make it stick out at all.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 6, 2007
on tap at some pub in helsinki, poured in that funny finnish way where the glass sits in a cradle and they just press a button and the tap fills it up. anyways, the pouring was the most interesting thing about it - golden, flat, bland, lemonade finish
