A solid lager type brew. Nothing special but true to the style and very drinkable.

Pale yellow and kinda looks like piss. The taste is like watered down beer with alcohol shot added.. Only got this for a country rating.. Not a good beer.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2014
330ml bottle from Gourmondo.de, clear gold colour , tiny mostly vanishing fizzy white head, a bit of lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and caramel with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a moderately sweet and slightly bitter finish with a slightly astringent feel. Medium body, dry/watery texture, lively carbonation. The malt part of the aroma was even somewhat pleasant if simple but the lack of hops at any stage turned it into a below-average lager rather than a pleasant one.

Pdubyah (340) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2014
This is a good beer of its type. No metallic edges and the malty aroma isn’t too over powering or off-putting. Pleasantly refreshing and frankly I enjoyed this more than I thought I would
