sailracer (481) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Pretty standard pale lager. A little more bitterness than typical. OK but not great.

SkillsFactory (506) - ITALY - JUN 27, 2016
Dorata pallida, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di mais, leggerissimo malto d'orzo. Al palato si invertono le parti, leggero mais e malto d'orzo, finale lievemente erbaceo. Corpo leggero, mediamente carbonata.

martpez (101) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
A fresh larger with a nice head and a light bitterness. Quite like it a step above Morreti or Nastro Azzuro but nothing too special. Easily matches the german macros though.

Nevalainen (499) - FINLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Clear pale color with white head. Aroma is malty, bread. Taste is light bitter. It’s an ordinary lager. Nothing special, but drinkable.

Leighton (17798) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear, very pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Papery aroma, with light doughy touches. Light sweet flavour with a little lemon, paper, dried out dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Drying finish, with lingering paper notes. Mediocre.

ordybill (1234) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is slightly skunky which matches the watery taste. Not a good beer.

Quick3Beers (809) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Pours an amber from a bottle. Corny nose, slightly skunky flavor but not altogether horrible, just sort of run of the mill bad.

KeefOz (1464) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2016
BB 12.06.16. Poured a clear pale golden colour with 5mm of white foam that diminished quickly. Laced poorly. Carbonation low and very fine. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste of semi-sweet malt and a tart bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Smooth and crisp while cold but develops a tartness and sourness on the finish.

Tokyo9 (250) - GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Soft malt aroma
Light bodied
Slight citrus flavour
Finish with malt

A decent pils/lager

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2015
33cl bottle at Etto in DC. Pours a clear blonde with some creamy, white head. Nose is starchy, not really malt, more just grist, some corn bread, light lemon. Flavor is like boiled pasta water, starchy, some white flour, just a like of lemon. Finishes dry. Overly simple.

Cimbasso (667) - - DEC 11, 2015
Sampled from a 33cl bottle at the Hop House, Hong Kong. Golden colour, slightly darker than a typical lager. Not much aroma, but taste is of bread, honey and grass. Rather light and watery and with light bitterness. Not particularly memorable.
