Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours crystal clear gold with a quickly fading head. Nose shows vegetable notes, cardboard and sweet light malt. Sweet flavours too with more vegetable notes. A hint of bready malt. Pretty much no bitterness to counter the sweetness. Needs more carbonation.

LorikMan (1) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013 does not count
It tastes the most like pilsner. It has some hop accents but overall less then other pales

What’s there to say? This is a macro crap beer and definitely taste like it... Ah, well, it’s now rated...

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2013
DATE TASTED: December 1, 2013... GLASSWARE: standard pilsner...OCCASION: Christmas tree-trimming and decorating... APPEARANCE: clear as crystal golden body; thin, filmy, off-white head; steady effervescence; thick, screening lacing is surprisingly attractive... AROMA: malty base; some bubblegum and dough--not really articulated... PALATE: a bit creamy; crisp and clear--surprisingly smooth...TASTE: woody aftertaste follows a swift, slightly metallically hopped profile; as macro lagers go, inoffensive...OVERALL: a good compliment for the pita chips I’m eating now--palate-cleansing and soft...

s_hartshorne (637) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Large can morrisons. Aroma is sweetcorn. Taste is sweet bread. A very good example of a larger for a non larger drinker. Medium carbonation. Not much aftertaste.

cargo150 (420) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Une des moins pire des pire, se bois bien, les arômes sont un peu plus développé et avec un peu plus de caractère.

smaynard6000 (555) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2013
22oz can. Pours a pale yellow color with medium-sized white head. Somewhat unusual fruity aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet and a bit tart. Different from your ordinary pale lager, not outstanding by any means, but different.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Aroma has a very mild herbal spiciness, flavour adds a slight medicinal note. As bland lagers go this one isn’t unpleasant, just rather dull.

drsordr (892) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle pale yellow. Nose adjunct, corn, slight medicinal. Taste not much. Similar to nose. Served ice cold, actually ice floating in the glass, more tolerable that way.
