reakt (950) - Greater London, - DEC 24, 2012
Can, gift from PhilL’s Eastern European trek. Pale blond with a fluffy white head. Sweet, grainy nose but not in a nasty way, some noble hop and slight citrus, even a touch of lactic twang maybe. Quite clean, light and refreshing, I guess that’s what I meant above by "not nasty". Not overly cloying, bitter or fizzy, went down a treat. Not an everyday beer but if I was on holiday, I’d sink a few.

seymour (1798) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2016
500ml green bottle into a snifter, it poured a crystal-clear golden colour with sudsy white foam which faded fast, but swirling would kick-up a new head each time. Typical pale lager traits: grainy, grassy, hint of DMS but not too corny, hint of black pepper spice, classier hop balance and drier finish compared to most ubiquitous Euro-Lagers. Decent for a sip, but the remainder was even better in my beer cheese soup. C’mon guys, this beer deserves better than an 8 rating!

midovark (82) - Balssagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2016
0.5 l can in Croatia & on tap in Sopron, Hungary. Nothing outstanding, in any way, what’s more, the tapped one was even more disappointing. I wouldn’t consider it cheap for its ordinariness.

TXBadger (2220) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with much of the same, simple lager, yet crisp and clean. Not bad at all.

Kita (1671) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle & can, 0.50l. Clear pale golden color with large frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, grass, vegetables with mild papery note. Tastes light sweet malty with slightly sour grassy and citric following and moderate bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Just lager...

AlfredoGarcia (222) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 19, 2015
500 ml can. Bought in a Coop in Lausanne. Strong metallic smell, some hops maybe also in there. Golden color with low white head. Taste better than expected, malty and dry hops. Decent sensation in mout. A big meh.

hauxe (166) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Rated from old notes made prior to 2009 version. Pleasant although uncomplicated taste. Big foamy head. A lot of hops in the mesh. Refreshing but will not hold your attention for very long.
