BlowOffTube (396) - Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2013
It is what it is. Light, drinkable, not much to it other than a light pilsner. Hay, sweet, medium carbonation.

inbirraveritas (1196) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2013
Bottled, 35.5 cl. Clear golden colour, medium sized creamy white head. Simple grain malty aroma. Finish is short and sweet corny underpainted by some shy hints of hops. Boring refresher.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is weak, not much there at all. Lightly creamy, smells like a beer in a clear bottle. Taste similar, lightly creamy boring macro lager. Not offensive, but definitely not exciting.

fattybladdy (449) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a medium clear golden. Aroma of sour grain. Taste is mild, grain and corn, a bit sweet. Not a lot to it but pretty refreshing and not bad to pair with food.

floydisbest (8) - - OCT 9, 2013 does not count
Aroma comes off a bit roasty and bready. A bit herby in the hops, but not much. It’s color is a fairly clear amber, with minimal head on the pour. Light to medium sweetness for the taste. Light to medium body as well, with a thinner texture, soft carbonation, and a carbonated, mildly astringent finish.

lhns03 (68) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Wow here is a tough one. Would’ve loved it when I was 17. Comes in a CLEAR bottle with the correct amount of skunking on the nose because of it. One of the few beers where I would recommend "fruiting". Addition of lime makes it highly refreshing. Watery mouthfeel with little flavor.

Philym (698) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Appearance: Clear light amber with cm thick white head. Aroma: Floral, corn, pepper, biscuit and hoppy. Taste: Low sweetness, medium bitter and sourness. Palate: Smooth thick texture, medium body and mouthfeel, prickly carbonation and has a fairly abrupt finish of bitterness and pepperiness with a slight tartness. Comments: Not fantastic but it was refreshing. No glass lace.

NeoHippie2 (795) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Yellow pour, white head. Aromas of watery malt. Flavor is pretty watery but clean and crisp. Not bad if it’s a hot day on the beach I suppose.
