Standard lager, more hearty and skunkier than a Heineken, a decent ABV for a pale lager.

Pale golden color, clear; quickly dissipating white head - aroma of malt, grain, cardboard, some citrus, some herbs - taste: light sweetness, very light bitterness and sourness, balanced - light body, thin texture, lively carbonation - short finish.

Bottle 33cl. Clear pale golden color, thin frothy white head, recedes quickly, light lacing; aroma sweet malts, grain, corn, cardboard, hay; taste moderate sweet, slightly bitter; medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation; mild dry finish. Average all-over-the-world lager.

JulienHuxley (3304) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle shared with Tom at hotel tasting. Very, very pale gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really skunky, some grain, light corn, metallic notes. Taste is sweet, grainy something funky. Palate is light, a bit watery light-med carbonation. Meh.

NallePalle (124) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle, 0.5 l. Overall a pleasant lager, not too much carbonation, not too hoppy.

rollerton (64) - SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from SB. Pours a lot of head. Aroma of bread, taste is clear and a bit sweet. Good for this type of beer, really enjoyable.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml can served in a pint glass. First of all, this is not a Czech Pilsener (as it was described) but a Euro Lager beer. A: Pours a golden clear yellow color forming a big white fizzy bubbled head. Retention is low and not many lacings are left S: Sweet grains, mainly. Corn (the killer :)). Light skunky hops in the end T: Sweet upfront. Sweet grains, corn, Lager yeasts, cardboard. In overall, a dry beer. End in mild bitter M: Watery body and medium carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild bitter hoppy end O: Low drinkability. Poor [ BA Review @ 7/7/2012 ]

TheCametron (1834) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle and tap all over Croatia. Grabbed a couple of these on our balcony overlooking the harbour as soon as we got in to Dubrovnik. The moment was near enough perfect. The beer was cold and that’s the only thing that mattered. Objectively this beer is terrible.

50cl can. Typical souther Europe pilsener. Easy drinkable but not too much flavour.

Tarosama (49) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
I tried this beer in a bar inside Autobusni Kolodvor Zagreb(Zagreb Bus Station?) on a rainy day before catching a bus to the airport. It tasted like a normal lager and that’s all I remember ! Pretty average.

"from late winter/early spring: fairly typical pale lager. Not the worst, not the best. Hay, cereal, and a light prickly palate. No diamond in the rough here...but I’m a sucker and it was "on sale"."
