Bottle. What can you say. OK for a pale lager. Light, crisp clean, refreshing. That is what they are for, not much taste to speak of. Hooray!

BillWyce (959) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear straw-gold with a 2-finger white head. Light aroma, mixing lemon and caramel. Maybe some corn too. Body is light and watery. Brief finish. Flavor of grass mixed with a light note of lemon.

martpez (101) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Pours a light straw colour with a healthy lush head. The actual larger is well your standard affair. Far too carbonated. It has a certain dryness in flavour and it doesnt taste skunked but its a bland marco larger

Clear yellow color with some corn and some smelly aromas. Taste is very watery and overall just does not taste very good.

labeerinthum (448) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 8, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso richiama alla memoria l’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie e carbonazione bassa ha una discreta resistenza ed è voluminosa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La carbonazione è bassa e vivace. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è snello. Il dolce è medio e l’amaro è leggero, con un accenno di umami. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Al palato arrivano sentori di miele, orzo e fiori.

Iznogud (2047) - CROATIA - MAY 22, 2016
Canned from some off license in London. Yellow, white head. Bit stinky. Sweet, malty, corny. Watery, light bodied. Basically all comes down to the fact that two of us were barely able to drink half of can. This stuff is very bad.

Rask0lnikov (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 21, 2016
Golden yellow colour. Medium head. Some sweetness, medal, malts, hints of honey in the aroma. Slight synthetic grassiness, sweetness, hints of caramel. Watery in the middle. Slight bitterness in the end. Drinkable but not a good beer.

Jokestereo (280) - SWEDEN - APR 30, 2016
First of all, to be honest.. This is a country tick beer. Pours clear light golden with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma; Artificial floral notes, grass and some malt. Taste; The same as the aroma with artificial floral notes, some grass and malt. But most of all watery like a ocean.

nybol (1264) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Med bange anelser sætter jeg munden til glasset. Forventer meget i retningen af de andre "tynde" øl fra mexico, japan osv. Den har god noget mere smag, lidt over i noget sødlig malt. Men dog ikke det store sus.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur dorée claire, mousse très éphémère, niveau du goût : pas exceptionnel, dans les standards des bières du même style, reste néanmoins très rafraichissante

DraftDodger (922) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Copenhagen 16/4 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Classic design with the red diagonal stripe on white background printed directly on the bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. The head disappears immediately. Not much of an aroma. A little malty sweetness and a little sourness. Quite strong prickly carbonation and watery palate. Not much taste either. A little sweetness, little sourness and a little saltiness. Almost no aftertaste. Quite bland to be honest. But I suspect that it is just what the doctor ordered if you are in a tropical climate. And the bottle is a little design masterpiece in itself.
