Padchenko (277) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Pale yellow lager with decent whie head. Smooth, balanced and flavoursome - barley malt falvour. Decent, drinkable and inoffensive beer but nothing special by any stretch

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
Cleam, sweet, banana aroma. (By clean I mean not-adjuncty.) Blonde with minor head, quickly gone leaving the golden nectar to speak for itself. It spoke with a hint of honey, lager bitterness and solid blonde malt. Pleasant buttery finish. (I feel compelled to add that I drank this at cellar temp; I’m sure it’s a great deal blander straight outta the fridge.)

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle. Pale clear yellow with a ring of white lace. Old Milwaukee with a little more finishing hops. Whoopee.

Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
Ligth golden with disapearing white head. Bitter sweet aroma with a hint of alcohol. Refresing taste with growing bitter sweet aftertaste.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2006
Rather light, nothing that stuck out. Not bad, but tasted much like a light beer. You can tell that there was time put into the brewing process, the problem is that it just came out an average beer. Not bad, I got it at a Japanese restaurant, so it went perfectly with the meal. I would drink it again.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Light gold color. Scant head, no lace. Aromas of malt, miscellaneous grain, maybe rice or corn, citrus, yeast and a tad of hops. Flavor was well-balanced, slightly malty and some noticeable hop flavor and bitterness. Tastes all-malt but no toastiness or sweetness. Slightly sour. Reminds me of Ortliebs or Carling Black Label, for those who remember.

BMA (270) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
Golden color with a small white head. Taste and aroma of hops. Medium body. Not that impressive.

Stellaaaa (269) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. It has a faint aroma of malted corn and hops. This beer tastes of corn and bitter hops. Not the best beer, but a pretty good well-rounded lager that is neither too hoppy nor too malty.
