Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a small, white head. Vague aroma of malt and...chlorine? Body is thin with some weak, malty notes and only a hint of hops in the finish. Poor. 080106

Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts and corn with hoppy notes. Malty flavour with notes of caramel and corn and a hoppy finish. An OK pale lager, but still it’s nothing special.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Pale yellowish golden colour with mediumsized bubbly white head, that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is cooked vegetables, maizelike sweetness as well as some slight grains and mild metallic notes. Flavour is maizelike sweetness, some earth, mild cooked vegetables and grains. Not the worst of lagers...

Pale golden. Medium bodied, some corn- or rice flavour, some bitterness. OK as a tropical lager.

madmitch76 (16117) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
30th July 2008. Bottle from the Philippines. This generally is poor from anywhere else! Pale gold lager. Light and crisp. Watery but in a refreshing spritzer sort of way. Refreshing. A beer close to my heart as I drank loads of it in the Philippines. Sometimes even had this for breakfast when the water was suspect.

Blond color. Smell of plastic and alcohol, with the malt. Very common taste; strong bitterness; probably not bad if tasted in Asia…

Blond color. Bad corn aroma. Sweet taste, hay, corn. Watery final. Too poor.
