Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with creamy white head. Mellow and easy to drink. Very light citrus, grain, hay, a bit of cardboard. Good for a pale lager. Clean.

Vaalean kullankeltainen kirkas olut kohtalaisen kivalla, pitsiä jättävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu lagereille tyypillisesti varsin tunkkainen ja mitäänsanomaton. Maku on todella vetinen ja laimea, pienellä maltaan maulla ja katkeruudella. Suutuntuma hiilihappoinen ja raikas, mutta vetinen ja ohut. Kylmänä menee laimean vichyn korvikkeena ja varmaan toimii Jamaikalla, mutta ei täällä. Kivasta pullosta plussaa.

Cerveja clara, leve, pouco encorpada. Fácil de ingerir. Pouquíssimo amargor. Nota 5

Well not my kind of beer. Sweetish with some bready notes but lack of inspiration. This could, if served extremely cold, be enjoyable when the alternative is even worse. Lawnmowing maybe.

Just a really bad beer overall. Pours yellow with an average frothy lager head. Aroma is metallic and generally off putting. Forced it down and tried not to think about it or taste it. Lucky to get an overall 1 in my rating.

Art (3150) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Drank a lot of this at a friend’s wedding in Jamaica. Clear light Amber color with a white head. Aromas of corn and some grape sweetness. This is really the lesser of two evils with the light version right next to it. Good cold. Bad warm.

Huhzubendah (3542) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Grilling out with friends. Transparent, pale golden body teeming with effervescence. An inch of soapy, bone white head rests at the apex. Aromas of miscellaneous grains, adjuncts. Clean and refreshing. Light and simple. A good backyard, summer day kind of lager.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of malts, bread, slight citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter with a soft bitter finish. Notes of malts, grass, bready, slight metallic. Texture is watery, light to medium bodied with medium carbonation
