konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2010
Not a very good one. Sweet flavors of cereals and cashew nuts, no hops evident at all. Way too sweet and with too boring flavors to be enjoyable.

bmeup (576) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Pale gold, white open head. Light malt aroma & flavour is the same. Some sweetness & mellow hops. Smooth mouthfeel and average.

beer4eternity (212) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 31, 2010
330ml bottle. Crystal clear golden hue, medium sized white rocky diminishing head moderate lacing. Aromas of honey, cereal, vegetable especially potato and peas cooking, sweet malt. Moderately sweet, low bitterness. Crisp carbonation, light to medium body - more than most pale lagers. Finish is a bit dry, astringent, slightly metallic, thin. OK for a pale lager, fairly forgettable.

floydian1 (1186) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle. Appears clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malts and light fruity hops. Tongue is fairly sweet honey malts with a low bitterness. Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a rather sticky texture. Average.

Pyobon (1103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Clear pale golden, thin white head. Subtle but pleasant aroma - sweet and fruity. Light body and carbonation. Flavour is bland: light sweet start with slightly tart finish with the barest hint of hops. Overall, boring, bland but drinkable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle @ "Keg" bar in Hong Kong. Clear orange with stable white head. Fruity aroma with lots of esters, banana and even cherry. Soft carbonation, sticky in the finish. Fruity flavors and cherry. Too much like tropical fruit punch but not a bad beer.

madmitch76 (18659) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
26th September 2008. Sampled at ’Beer Exposed’. Very smooth, no acrid tastes. Refreshing after the above room temperature bitters I had been drinking!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Golden colour, thin head, aroma is a little bit appley, light pale malt. Light body, slightly fruity and slightly tart, finishes easy.

Mjollnir (392) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2009
It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. Pleasant aroma that doesn’t carry through. Above average for the style.
