MiP (13573) - SÝnderborg, - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle, 4.6%. Weak malty aroma, fresh-ground pepper? Clear shiny golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is quite malty, like a Bavarian lager. Not very bitter, only a little aroma hop to go with the not too unpleasant paper finish. Clean, but not crisp.

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours clear yellow-gold with a white cream topping. Pretty standard (if slightly dated) pale lagery stuff, with notes of cereal, faint paper and light bittering hay. Light in body with average carbonation. Finishes with light pale cereal sugars, some straw. So so but condition might not be tops.

Migmar (248) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Pale yellow, not much head. Grass, butter, citrus. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Slightly better than bulk lagers, but only slightly...

Kauge (93) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from K-supermarket at Kamppi, Helsinki (Ä 3,99) in August 2014. Pours a slightly hazy, very pale golden with a big white top that drops fast, then nearly disappears. Nose is malt-driven and slightly caramelly, but some nice spicy - reminiscent of ginger - and floral aspects are also detectable. Taste is again malt-driven, itís caramelly sweet, but also juicy and fruity with a dry, malty finish. A mediumish body; sticky texture. Lively carbonation (bubbles still rising after itís been sitting on the desk for 15 minutes). I imagine Iíd enjoy this tremendously straight from the bottle after a hot day spent in the ocean (preferrably in Hawaii), together with a good junky dish. I think this one really calls for a pizza with pineapples! - But as Iím sitting here in the comfort of my sofa, sipping it from a glass... naaah, itís merely okay for a weirder take on a lager.

MrJoller (52) - ITALY - AUG 9, 2014
Clear golden pour, white medium lasting head. Aroma isnít present with only some grainy character and some faint hops coming at nose. Taste is grainy too with some fruity hops. Not balanced. Not coherent to style. Not good.

Bork (128) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Fruity and slightly thick with a fair bit of body. A little on the sweet side, making it feel less than crisp but still summery.

arkurzynski (1497) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Pale gold. Nose of skunked citrus/pine hops and lager malt. Flavor is citrus hops with golden malt and grain. Lingering pine and citrus. Good for what it is.
