Pours a clear light golden color with a white head. Aroma is of hay, sweet malts, and skunk. Flavor is the same. Seems pretty watery but still a little better then other macro brews. No lingering flavor and plenty of skunk. Not good.

500 ml bottle. The aroma was skunky and metallic. It poured yellow and basically looked no diffrent than any of the US mass-produced pales like Bud, Coors, and Miller. It was smooth enough but I found the aroma a bit overpowering to make this enjoyable. It tasted like a cheap Heineken. Not impressed.

(50cl bottle) But it says itís an ale! Could the brewer possibly be "mistaken?" Crystal clear apple juice body topped by medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, fruity, bread, light grassy. Taste is medium sweet, fruity, some earthy/grassy, light grainy. Light astringency. Watery light-medium body.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2007
Found it 2 Carrefour in Gerakas Attikis (Greece) along with some other ukranian beer and had to try them of course. A typical pale lager with slightly dry end. Average

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 17, 2007
sampled in Kos - clear golden-bronze colour with a little foam; decently malty nose with notes of rice and smoked bacon; moderately swet with a good regular malt body; a touch of late bitterness and a short gently malty finish

leaparsons (9939) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Aromas are grain and sugar with butter and corn. Flavours are iniitially quite crisp but too much sugar follows. Seems underdeveloped. Some lightly prickly hops on the finish. Mediocre.

aroma and flavour is very wierd, probably it it the rice inside that makes it all bad, texture is rather strange as well, I consider it a failure,

It has a bitterness that is astringent and the palate is watery but it is easy to drink. The aroma is sweet and very much like a malted tonic water with minimal hops. The appearance is pale gold with a two finger head that falls fast. Most of the bitterness is up front with a sweet malty finish.

Pours a white soap bubble head which is big at the beginning, but disipates to a small one after a few minutes. Color of dark straw. Visible carbonation in the glass. Light clean malty flavor, perhaps a little oxidized? Even a rubberband flavor to it in the aftertaste. Not overly impressed. Bought it on a whim when I was in a Russian deli and didnít recognize it as a beer Iíve had before. Purchased at Babuskaís Deli, in Walnut Creek, CA.

Bottle. " Pours a nice clean golden colour with abubbly fizzy rather short lasting white head. Very little lacing. Aroma of hops and malt, some sweetness. Good mouthfeel for a pale lager. Flavour is a bit sweet with a nice hoppiness, ok maltiness, grainy with somealcohol. Well lasting bitter hoppy finish. It says "Light Beer" under "Magnat". ...?? Must be a reference to the colour.
