0,5l can in Sofia. Citrusy aroma and flavor. Watery and mild. For a pilsener this is ok.

Jamedra (627) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 22, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je sladové s jemným chmelovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je žlutá. Chuť je velmi jemně sladová, spíše prázdnější, finiš je slabě hořký a nedržící. V ústech pivo působí fádně, má střední říz a je vcelku dobře ptielné

Bottle shared with McTapps. Not a bad one offering some nuts, malt and bread. Easily drinkable with a slightly wooden and earthy background. Bit thin but not bad at all.

McTapps (5168) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
Can from Dorin - many thanks! The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of cheap hops, metall and malt. Taste of very light hops, light malt, bread, grass and mild citrus fruits. Malty-grainy finish with dusty hints. Drinkable.

gunnar (6113) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
2,3 l PET bottle from a cornershop in Rethymno. Pours clear golden with a big, fast diminishing creamy white head. Aroma of dusty malts and something that reminds me of Heineken, light struck hops. Taste is very weak sweet, neutral and no bitterness detected, honeyish sweetness at the finish.
