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.

Surprising fruit aroma, more like a light ale. Brassy color with a firm white head that somewhat laces. Firm mouthfeel, reasonable level of carbonation, and some nice hop at the start. The finish could have more hop, but at least the common lager "rice" impact is hardly detectable. Could fool me into thinking I was drinking ale. Except after a while a lager corniness pops up a little. Decent as lagers tend to get. Crisp. Clean.

Bottle. Clear amber with medium white head that diminished quickly. Small aroma. Light body with smooth texture. good flavor that was well balanced of hops and malt with small bitter finish. Good marketing for an average brew.

500 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a lingering white head. Aromas of bread, light straw and hints of citrus and spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread dough, light straw, light citrus and a hint of spice with a crisp lingering lightlyt bitter finish.

imdownthepub (13235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2006
Bottled, 500ml, Pasteurised. Yellow gold with short lasting head. A sweet smooth lager beer without any lasting flavours. Search and you find some peardrop and a little banana, but it is mostly a bit thin and washed out. Short on the finish.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Clear yellow with healthy white foam. Aroma is invitingly grassy. Taste is mild grassy, some sweetness. Bitterness remains after the swallow. A nice beer, but nothing special.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2007
Golden beer with a medium sized white head. Slightly perfumed fruity aroma, some pilsner malt notes. Quite sweet and fruity flavour, with a hoppy finish. Better than industrial lager, not quite up there with a good pilsner.

Draft - Light crisp biscuit. Pale gold with a rich white head. Light, but pretty sweet biscuit. Nothing special.
