Maits (179) - ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2016
Clear golden beer with minimal white head. Aroma is yeast and some fruits. Taste is sweet, but little bitter finish. Watery, light body. Quite OK lager for me.

mice (818) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Hyvin vaalea olut pienellä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu peruslagermainen, maku hieman kupliva alussa, mutta ei juuri muuta. Hyvin vetinen. Heikko olut.

Jonb5 (508) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
330ml bottle, poured into Stone snifter. A: Pale golden, clear, medium sized head which resembled bath bubbles and didn’t hang around for too long. S: Floral noble hop aroma. T: Hints of sweetish apple balanced out by a slightly bitter wheaty finish. M: Medium body, not quite as carbonated as a typical Euro lager, but went down quite well. O: This was pretty decent, had more in it’s locker than a Euro style lager. A kind of expensive premium brand beer served by pricey Italian restaurants.

SkillsFactory (552) - 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 (128) - 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 (617) - 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 (18700) - 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 (1340) - 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.
