Guinnessman (102) - VACAVILLE, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Little head. Great aroma and flavor. Aftertaste was incredible and it just sat on the palate for several minutes after a drink. Now I just have to find it.

zestytaco (34) - Niceville, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours a pale yellow with decent head. The aroma consists mainly of grass/straw. The flavor starts out with the same grassy hints that were found in the aroma along with a surprising bit of hop bitterness. I wasn’t expecting much from this brew but I was proven wrong. This is a decent beer and one that would be nice on hot summer day.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Had at Fresco by Scotto with Timmy and Peter. Very good pale lager... berry taste that I wasn’t expecting. Did not taste like another watery lager.

garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 29, 2010
Orange/golden colour with frothy white head. Malty aroma. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter in the taste, some malt also. Medium/soft carbonation, medium body and some light mix of sweet-bitter (!) after taste. Very nice beer.

kappldav123 (5159) - GERMANY - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, modest spicy-hoppy, a bit grasy. Finish well balanced, still mild. Surprisingly good. Thanks to my friends Fiene and Marcel for this one!

jjuf1853 (1245) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Grassy hop and sweet malt aroma and flavor. Very smooth and drinkable. Paired well with my muffalatta.

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Pours a nice clear appetizing amber, though the white head is a bit scanty. Aroma is mainly fruity, pear and apple, with a malty undertone. Flavor has a good malty foundation and firm notes of apple and pear, not special but still satisfying. Mouthfeel has average body and a decent amount of tingle. For a pale lager, not too shabby.

Very nice and mild lager. I detect some vanilla in there, all soothing tastes. Not bad.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle at L’Ozio in Amsterdam. Nice golden body with tall head. Hoppy nose. Some bitter in the flavour. Well-balanced with malts. Quite creamy and went down very well. I must say I was very positively surprised with this one.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 9, 2010
Nice surprise. Pleasant hoppy aroma, golden colour and medium head. Slight malt notes, almost no bitterness, but hops present till finish.
