Jamesthebrit (383) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
When the style is "premium beer" you know you have problems.. A: Light aroma. Lager yeastiness. A hint of lemon and malt. A: Looks... cheap? Head retention is nothing. Color is a light yellow orange. T: Tastes light. Like water. A hint of maltiness. A hint of yeastiness and lemon citrus. P: Light... like soda water. Overall not the worst macro I’ve had but not the best. And it’s still a macro.

jamaty (1546) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2015
Dorada clara, limpia burbujeante, no mucha espuma. Cereal en el aroma, ligeramente especiada. En boca es bastante gaseosa, que disimula la base cereal, a la vez que el lúpulo le da un tono más seco (predominio dulce) sobre todo al final, ligeramente herbal y especiado. Del montón. Bebible.

Bierdimpfe (51) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
Clear pale straw color. Foamy head that dies fast. Overwhelming metallic smell with citrus. Soft unique sweet taste that I enjoy. Fresh and crisp. A Sake kind of bitter finish. Well balanced but dry. Overall a very accessible beer with a bad smell...is the can bottle doing this?

Iphonephan (5001) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2015
From an enormous silver can poured into a pint glass. Light bready nose. Flavors of rice and corn. Not the best of Japanese beers.

Golden lager with a hoppy aroma, light malty flavour, but the palate is rather thin and the finish insipid. If this is the premium stuff then I am not exactly gagging to taste the regular variety.

LazyPyro (177) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 650ml can (nicely shaped). Clear golden colour with a medium sized smooth white head. Not much of an aroma, a little grassy maybe. Pleasant taste but a little watery. Refreshing standard lager.
7th May 2015.

Shot (313) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aromas are sweet and citrusy with some skunkiness. Flavors are sweet corn, melon, grass, and bread. very little hop presence. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Acceptable.

hrabren (389) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2015
0.33 l bottle, a gift from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja and Goran. Had it before, rating only now. Pale golden with small white head. Malt, cereal, sugars, fake sugary aroma. Strange fruity sweetness. Raspberry. Watery, medium carbonation. Sweet finish. Doesn’t feel like a lager sometimes.

Chopper925 (324) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden color, fairly small white head, with no sparkling in the glass. Fruity nose, fresh cut grass, sweet raspberry bonbons. Light sweet taste, mild bitterness, slightly sour note. Thin texture, but fresh carbonation. Sweet, light malty, bready aftertaste. Not very outstanding, but better than expected.

bewyder (286) - FRANCE - SEP 19, 2015
Lager standard quelconque, malt, léger caractère sur petite amertume et petite pointe sèche, pas grand chose de spécial mais décente et pas désagréable. Bouteille 33cl bue chez Kintaro, Paris, France, le 19/09/2015.

Can from Morrisons Byker. Quite gassy, but fairly crisp in flavour. A nice looking package but very standard lager
