DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Aroma -the malt has a hay/cearal type of thing going on. Even a little corny. Appearance - this is beer is an unfiltered yellow, with a nice little head that dies down quickly to a small little sliver of white. Off putting. Taste - taste is slightly sweet and hay like malt,. No bitterness to speak of. Palate - body is really light. It’s texture is thin. The carbonation soft. Finish very abrupt. Didn’t expect much, so not that disappointed. Not terrible, not good either.

Cunningham (5848) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2013
A good looking lager. Nice clear golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Typical caramel malty, and a mild hoppy aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation. Mild fine caramel malty and mild hoppy flavor. Quite fresh actually. Some fruity notes. Decent pale lager.
[Had this on several occasions. Both from a bottle and on tap in Tallin]
