Clear pale yellow body, medium sized white head, sparse lacing. Sweet grains and cereals. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, clean finish. An unoffensive pale lager.

Golden yellow beer with unstable head. Smell is hoppy but also there is some acidity. Taste is thin. A bit watery and once you are used to the hop bitterness the taste is really thin.

Can my father in law brought from HongKong. Aroma is fruity, grass, flowers. Clear yellow, white foamy head, little but heavy sparkling, fading head. Taste is fruity as well, grass, sweet. Fizzy start, weak end. Bittersweet finish.

Klar gulfarge med medium skum. Lukter søtlig malt. Smaker søtlig malt. Litt flat, lite kullsyre. Smaksløkene blir ikke akkurat utfordret, dette var ganske tamt.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle, drank during sushi. Unbelievable I haven’t ticked this yet. Pours a clear golden beer with a nice firm white head on top. Aroma is malty and grainy, typical lager and so I’d the flavor. It really does suit Japanese food, extra points for that. Decent lager, that’s all.

hobsch (373) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle 0.33l. Pours clear golden with low head. Aroma is malt, slightly metallic. Taste is medium sweet, low bitterness, grains, malt, corn. Drinkable but flat and boring.

Agradable y suave cerveza y ese puede ser su problema. No tiene cuerpo suficiente para destacarse de cualquier otra cerveza suave ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Bière couleur de blé, limpide et où flotte un fin col mousseux éphémère laissant au verre une infime dentelle. Au nez, de très légers arômes de pâte à pain, de malt fruité et de miel. Elle est peu amère, finement acide et légèrement sucrée. Elle est très légère, aqueuse, très effervescente et se termine abruptement sur de courts arômes et un peu de sucre.
