Used this one to cook some beer, mixed 50-50 with Carolus Tripel so hopefully the dish won’t be ruined. Pours a clear pale gold with a rachitic white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of cereals and adjuncts, not too bad. Taste is of lightly sweet cereals and not hoppy at all indeed. Slight husky feel in the finish. Body is light and carbonation medium-high. Overall it wasn’t too bad but I won’t come back to it for sure.

golden yellow. sparkly. minimal head. light hint of rice/grain on the nose. simple lager flavor. some sweetness, but really not much flavor, other than moderate bitterness. an above average beginner (low end) beer.

Light retention and no lacing. Smells of grass, sweet biscuit and lemon. Tastes of lemon grass and malty grain. Yeasty aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aparência: rótulo chamativo; espuma fugaz; coloração dourada translúcida. Aroma: comum. Sabor: adocicada, não como uma Malzbier, mas diferente; será o arroz? Só para conhecer, não troco uma Heineken por ela.

I was excited at first. But wait, it’s an A-B product? Whether in whole or in part, it’s not exactly what you want from a beer that you think is an import. That’s one strike before the bottle is opened. It pours with a thin head. Not much of an aroma, a little citrusy, a little spicy, but that’s about all. The color is a little lighter than I excpected, not quite straw, but not amber. First sip is actually pretty good, but after a couple, it becomes slightly bitter, and not in a good way. It has a heavy mouthfeel, somewhat strange. Interesting. The label and the name is what caught my eye. Worthy enough to try, but not to buy again,

DwarfeD (1438) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Draught at Moshimo, Brighton. Clear golden with a small white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter. Malts, yeast and grain. A mediocre lager.

Kita (1347) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, grass and citrus. Tastes light sweet grainy with bready sourness, somehow feels like it’s thinned by rice, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Just an average lager...
