COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

caribou43 (44) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Es una cerveza banal. Sin embargo hay pocas opciones en Perú y la tomo pero sin estar feliz de tomar algo bueno. Hay unas cervezas artesanalew pero la gente no tiene recursos para comprar esas cervezas.

Rulymel (198) - SPAIN - MAR 24, 2015
Poor pale lager with nothing interesting. Aroma is ligtly malty. Taste is soft, poor and boring. To forget.

MarkoNm (1123) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small white head. Malty aroma, some grassy notes in there too. Taste starts with a very slight sweetness, followed by nice bitterness. Crisp and refreshing, slightly metallic in theaftertaste. Not that bad actually. Pretty drinkable. Especially ice cold.

mzaar (1924) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
På fat. Jag minns ärligt talat inte hur den doftade, hur den smakade. Det var en klar guldfärgad öl med ett stort vitt skum och det smakade lager-öl. Inget märkvärdigt, inga minnesbilder, bara ännu en i raden av trista öl som lika gärna kunde ha låtits bli, eller ersatts av ett glas rött exempelvis.
