Lambister (208) - - SEP 16, 2013
Pale golden colour, minimal head. Bready aroma like most lagers. Pretty dry and light bodied with some grassy hops. A refreshing pils like lager.

Light golden colour, very little head. Tastes of hay, some carbonation present. Quite a boring beer.

thellgren (293) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Looks like an average lager with lots of bubbles and decent head. Taste is very malty, better than I expected. There is also some hops and CO2. Quite nice in its style, not just water with a hint of beer.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2014
(bottle - 24 oz) Disappointed on so many levels. Thought it was actually from Nepal. Clear gold. No head. Bad skunked aroma and an even worse skunked taste.

AshtonMcCobb (2679) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
33cl bottle from Khukuri restaurant. Appearance - golden with a very thin head which quickly disappears. Nose -gentle pale malt and some citrus. Taste - more lemon malt. Palate - very thin body but at least it’s refreshing which is essential for this style. Overall - had worse and it doesn’t offend.

McWorta (606) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 1, 2014
Light hazy pale golden coloure beer with a small fading thin white head. Noses of barnyard, straw, dust, grain/cereals and bread. Rather thin texture with a light fizz light sweet bitter with a touch of dryness to it. Finish goes rather unnoticeable.

Zarkam (443) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2014
330ml bottle from a supermarket in Helsinki. Clear gold colour, small white fizzy mostly vanishing head, some lacing. Aroma of grain, caramel and light citric hops. Taste is initially fairly neutral bittersweet turning into a light bitter finish with a slightly chalky feel. Light body, lively carbonation, dry texture. A fairly uninteresting although very refreshing lager.

andrepintado (1472) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - OCT 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark gold color with thin head. Carbonation is quite present. Aroma is high cereal. Not as bad as I expected!

Leini (841) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2013
330ml bottle. Bready, with some bitter notes, grass and honey. Far from anything extraordinary.
