metalspice (636) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2016
Hovedsaklig vann. Lysgul farge nesten uten skum. Greier å kjenne igjen en lett søtlig kornduft, ellers ingen aroma. Korn og høy med små søtlige toner også i smaken. Syltynn munnfølelse.

Curiosité satisfaite. Bière blonde légère agréable par temps chaud. Difficile à distinguer parmi d’autres bières de ce style.

AnG_BrgNor (483) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2016
Aroma and taste is og hops and malt. Aroma is weak and the taste is dominated by the malt. Its slightly bitter in the end. Refreshing, but not much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No es gran cosa pero refresca cuando tienes sed, una lager más sin mucho que decir pero mejor que otras lager industriales.

bavarian81 (143) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Poured a pale, transparent yellow with lots of carbonation. Pretty bland aroma of skunkiness and I guess corn. Flavor is just as bland, just some mild hops and.. tin? Otherwise it’s pretty light and crisp. Not even that great for a pale lager.. There are plenty I’d choose over this one.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bright pale straw color. Poor 1 finger head lasting around a minute. Weak legs with some high activity. Faint aromas and flavors of corn, herbal spices, fruity orange/banana feel, and slightly skunky. Well balanced between sweet and sour. Light body with medium carbonation. Short and faint smoky finish ending on the bitter side with a little dryness. Overall : One step better than the average macro beer but still a little stale and watery.

tightslice (894) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Busty Bomber from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is wet island cardboard funk. Taste is mildly herbal and sweet. No soul here Latrobe, no soul.
