pkbites (693) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Clear yellow pour with grainy nose. Little hops/malt. Some light bitterness but smooth and thirst quenching. Good with food as it doesn’t dominate the pallet. Nothing outstanding but I’d take this over an American macro any time.

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2014
Wässriges Lager mit ein bisschen Reis und Malz im Aroma. Recht einffach zu trinken mit Momenten von Karamell. Wie ein Lager meist so ist, wenn auch die Perlung hier etwas geringen ist. Ganz ok.

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2014
Can from local Spar in Austria. The beer pours out in a light golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of cheap hops and grass. Taste of hops, bread, hay, straw, malt and old fruits. Metallic finish. Drinkable, yet nothing nice.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Straightforward pilsner with a nice sharp aftertaste and a cheap, yet decent sweetness in the main taste. "Cheap, yet decent" is the overall impression I am left with.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from Merkur Hoher Markt in Vienna. Pours gold with a fizzy/foamy white head. Aroma seems to have a hint of skunk. Near med body. No skunk in the flavor, but hardly any hop either. Just grainy/bready. Ok, maybe a touch of hop, but it’s far from bitter.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Can. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light corn and cardboard. Body is light, malty and lightly sweetish, light cardboard. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light sharp metal and alcohol, faint hoppyness. Generic lager with notes of alcohol and metal - not good.
