Optisch echt nicht toll, sehr hell, Schaum bricht schnell weg, wenig Perlen. In der Nase Maische, Reis, irgendwie pissig. Im Trunk sehr wässrig, wieder Reis, trotz sehr guter Kühlung nicht wirklich lecker und gerade so trinkbar. Kein Abgang.

A bottle of water disguised as a beer. Watery lager, but I guess it gets the job done if you’re thirsty.

BeerInHeaven (264) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Clear straw gold with a medium but quickly dissipating white foamy head. Aroma is slight skunk hay grass. Taste is clean, slightly watery. Not my style, but not bad. Reminds me of like Becks.

tbonde (193) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2015
33 cl bottle@Bar in Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen in lager glass@approx 7 degrees C. Pours bright golden yellow with sufficient white head with tiny bubbles. Aroma of sweet grain. Taste is also rather sweet with low hops and hardly any bitterness. Slightly sour, rather than bitter aftertaste. Watery, spiky and thin. Did not compare favourably to a standard Carlsberg pilsner from tap in any way. Merely a marketing stunt to import this product as it has nothing to recommend it as a beer other than it will help you quench your thirst.

Very light and watery, with little personality and quite easy to forget. Just thirst-quenching.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2015
A very average foam that quickly disappears. Smells most of hops and maybe a little flower. It has no such a feature that makes it distinctive, either positively or negatively. However, it is a fine thirst-quencher.
