Bottle thanks to Nimbleprop. Shared at a tasting at my house. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose and taste of corn, light pepper, malt and light lemon. Lighter bodied. Not bad for the style.

gunnar (7884) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2013
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear golden with a small white head.Lots of visable carbonation. Aroma is sweet grainy corn. Taste is cloyingly sweet, nutty malts, short aftertaste, a plus in this case.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
330 ml green bottle, kindly shared by abemorsten. ABV is 4.8%. Deep golden colour, decent white head. Aroma of maize and over-cooked vegetables. Bland flavour, some malts and maize, minimal hops. Not undrinkable though.

Holmen1 (4816) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
Flaske delt med RBHD-guttene juni-13: mørk til en pale lager å være, brukbart skum. Aroma av maisgrøt, og maissmaken gjør seg til kjenne med en gang. Lite munnfylde og heldigvis kort ettersmak, som er dominert av daggammelt gressavklipp.

pushkinwow (2570) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Traded for a bottle for another country tick. What the heck right? Pale amber with a white head that fades to practically nothing. Corn adjunct, sugar, inoffensive. Moderate carbonation, mild and sweet body, not much going on, skunky aftertaste, but safer then water when in Uganda.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lager with a small bubbly white head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of adjunct and slightly oversweet corn notes. Taste is also dominated by corn notes with too much sweetness. Body is somewhat fuller then most pale lager with an oily texture. Bland with too much adjunct for my own taste.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Skunky old grains, light sweetness, and corn. Not awful.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at James’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Super skunky on the nose, old grain and malt. Medium bodied, grain and sweetness. Smells terrible, doesn’t really taste any better. Sweet and grainy. Not the worst of the night, that’s yet to come.

jredmond (7460) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Clockwork at his December 8th, 2012 tasting. Pours a clear golden body with no head and very light lacing. Aroma is super light overall, notes of light malt and a vague grassiness. Mouthfeel is super thin and pretty much tasteless.
