Golden orange clear pour with a thin white head ... aroma is of corn and sweet grainy malts with light funky hops .... taste is of corn and sweet grainy malts with a light bitter hoppy bite .... leaves a lingering malty crappy finish ... awful beer sweet and malty

Sigmund (5088) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared 50 cl green bottle at local tasting, 4.5% ABV. Pale golden colour, low white head. Strong aroma of grass, candy and butterscotch, but not unpleasant. Bland flavour, not much of anything, a little grassy hops in the finish. Forgettable.

abemorsten (2746) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared 0,5 l bottle. 4,5% is written on the bottle. Clear golden body with a white film. Buttery malts on the nose. Clean and bitter with a sharp carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Lasting bitterness.

gunnar (5260) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear weak golden with a small white head. Aroma is shy, but with a noticeable diacetyl note. Taste is very weak dry, herbal and harsh hops. Boring.

Holmen2 (853) - NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Clear, pale golden. Quickly disapperaing white head. Sweetish aroma with flowery hops and butterscotch. Similar taste. Not too bad. A bit waterish.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Every country outside of the old historical ’beer belt’ and outside of the States has its own national mass-marketed lager and usually little else when it comes to beer, and this is the one from Armenia. Crisp with thin mouthfeel, grainy with some corn-like, even a bit sugary sweetness (something I utterly dislike in pale lagers) and light spicy but brief hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable.

MarkoNm (505) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small and quickly vanishing white head. There is a mild malty aroma, which is basically it about the nose. The taste is watery and light, malty, sweet. No real bitterness. Drinkable.

Calisky (617) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Couleur dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez très leger malté typique lager. Gout très leger malté, mais tres aqueuse, bière de base meme si pas désagréable.

tderoeck (4555) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2014
25/V/14 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 1/V/14 (2014-556) Thanks to 77ships for picking this one up for me!

Clear golden beer, big aery white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: some weed in the bottle, in the glass more sweet and sugary, bit soapy, washing powder for clothes. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty bitter, bit sweet, grassy, hay, malty grains, sugary. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, sweet grains, meh. Armenia: check! :p

tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Clear yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is skunky with cereals, grass and metallic notes. Taste isn’t any better with even more funky notes (green bottle), corn and grass. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Bland finish. Pretty bad, even for a Premium Lager country tick.
