altonbrownd (4592) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Tall can from Blaisure! Light golden body with big head. Nose of corny malts with slight metallic feel. Taste is hoppy, with caramel and malts coming through as well. Metallic, but okay. Another Pale Lager from somewhere else.

Can. Not good at all. The taste is quite light but what’s there is not pleasant. Drink something else if you can.

douglas88 (7585) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Rocking the Estonian ticks. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A sweet sort of sticky dirty nose. Fizzy, somewhat sweet malts, maybe a hint of pils malt, not much here. Watery, minerals, metallic. Not great.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 The beer has a pilsener appearance. The color is golden yellow and the beer is very clear. The beer has a nice glow. It is very sunny and summery. There is a decent layer of rough white foam on top of the beer. The foam collapses quickly, and leaves a thin drape on top of the beer. The beer has a little bready smell, but it isn’t that bad. There is also some malt and some hops. There is also a nice sweet aroma. The taste is just simpel yet good beer. Bread, hop, barley, not very special, but good. The beer is a nice medicine against the thirst.
