Bottle: At least it tastes better than it smells. Really ripe with skunk... honestly it was touch or go for a minute. Tastes sweeter than expected and no bitterness at all. Just a sweet malty, sort of corn syrup like lager. I’ll finish this one, but no more.

larsga (6553) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
Medium white head. Clear paleish yellow body with carbonation. Fruity floral perfumy aroma with sulphury notes. Sweetish perfumy floral taste with papery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish jasmine tea and flowers aftertaste with perfumy salty notes. Like perfumed jasmine tea mixed with real beer. Not bad, but certainly no pleasure, either. (0.35l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan.)

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Usually have a soft spot for macro lagers that its just a snobby avoidance. Looks right gold transparent thin head. This is a smart avoidance though. Skunky, seems euro-fare based. Harsh grainy character. Eh

AgentAle (961) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Aroma is basic malts, a bland hop profile with light sulphur notes. Taste is again bland malts with corn and rice adjunct. Dry basic bitterness on finish. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.

tfontana (63) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 Aroma like cheap champagne or cereal--sometimes skunky. Appearance is a clear pale gold like apple juice with minimal fizzy head that appears for a nanosecond and then is gone. Light sweetness but indistinct. Thin, carbonated mouth feel with abrupt finish. A highly drinkable beer perfect really cold when it is very hot such as picnics or barbeques etc. A step up from American lagers. Time was this was the "good" beer. How far we’ve come...

shanoknowsfood (63) - Hawaii, USA - FEB 20, 2015
A bottle at my neighbor’s house. Not bad. But I had just drunk a Tommyknocker Nut Brown, so maybe that’s why this was so refreshing. But it was very smooth. Only slightly bitter.

This beer lacks any flavor at all and is very watered down - It’s even less flavorful than Coors Light :(

Pale golden color, clear; quickly dissipating, white head - aroma of grains, cereal, malt, some citrus hops - taste: slightly bitter - light body, rather thin texture, lively carbonation - short, grainy finish.
