COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2013
Bottle, 55 cl. Slightly slightly hazy golden with a dense white head, good retention and a fruity, slightly bready malt aroma with a hint of grass and citrus. Light sweet malt flavor with a slightly floral bitter finish. Refreshing albeit rather mainstream. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mtwhitney (168) - Maui, Hawaii, USA - APR 4, 2013
Hazy yellow. Head dissipates rather quickly. Slight banana. Hippies will love the fact that it is organic, but ignore the fact that the largest percent of "poison" in the bottle is alcohol. Sammy, stick to your wonderful stouts.

marcus (6860) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from BevMo, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a nice off-white head and a bready aroma. There is a fruity light malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Refreshing but not particularly tasty.

airrick2003 (565) - Louisiana, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Appearance: light gold, very clear, thick white head, head has minimal retainage Aroma: fruity, clean, pleasant Taste: malty, butter, slightest bit of hops at the end, almost unnoticeable under the malt Palate: medium body, moderate c02, have to really concentrate to catch an aftertaste Overall: smells good, pleasantly surprised, but I had low expectations, highly drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (2184) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Nov 2012 - tap. An average to poor lager - a little drying.

DavidWoodruff (410) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Clear pale gold with a fair white head. Sweet malt aroma. Slightly yeasty flavor. Balanced to a degree of blandness. Hops are entirely an afterthought. Well made but uninteresting.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Elegant golden fraught color, medium bubbly presence, good head of long resistance. Fresh malty nose, bread, grains, cellar. Very pleasant body, little crisp with a good bitterness content, pleasant bread and malty notes. Discreet resistant final, an unusual lager with something extra.

Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pale yellow clear poor, small foam. Shallow taste, not bitter. Drinks down smoothly, no long lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1219) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with fizzy white head. NOt much aroma but what there is light malt, a little grass. Taste is a little sweet, a little bread, some drying in the finish which I suppose is hops. On the up side no off flavors or vegetal tastes or odors. Think palate. Comparable to a better mainstream lager.
