Bottle. Pours a straw yellow, with a medium, fizzy and quickly diminishing head. Grainy nose, somewhat sweet, and not very pleasant. This is the type of beer does nothing for me, except amplifies the tastes that I despise in BMC.

hohops (399) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Appearance is clear and light golden, not much head. Aroma- vague hops, malty, not much going on. Taste of cereal malt, a bit creamy, slight spice. Ok lager.

If this is nearby and you're debating a brand name every-store light beer (miller lite, bud lite, coors etc.) this is a much better alternative. If you're looking for craft complexity this isn't quite there. It falls in a safe place of high drinkability. Hints of fruit hit well to start the palate. Summer or day drinking with ease with this. Bottle in Hawaii. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sharkydodson (372) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 25, 2015
the aroma is malty with some hints of grasses, grains and flowers... the taste is light and refreshening, malty with notes of citrus, candy and flowers... smooth hopping... dry and bitter finish...

Vinx (72) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2015
Less masculine than the classic german lagers, its aroma has some delicate citric and grassy and floral notes that remind me the american hops. Really well balanced. It’s so easy to drink and very good. An hawaiian pleasant and fine reinterpretation of the oldest of the styles.

SilkTork (5297) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
355ml dark bottle, filtered. £2.29 from Beers & Bottles, Southampton. Pale coloured. Dry, dull malt base. Some modestly zesty hops add some exotic citric notes, but fail to really lift it. Drinkable and inoffensive and just a tad above the ordinary pale lager.

Florya (471) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2015
How: Bottle Appearance: Clear golden, small white head. Aroma: mild citrus, grass, . Palate: light body, average carbonation.

Smells like lager, taste like lager. It probably is a lager, but it’s not worth verifying. Somewhat okay.

SinH4 (359) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Yellow color with hardly any head. Boring lager with a touch of citrus. A hint of earthy hops as well. Sorta refreshing. Meh.
