Kita (1673) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with thin soapy white head and average carbonation in palate. Aroma is dusty, grainy, honeyish and floral. Taste starts with light sweet biscuit malt, following is fruity and slightly vegetably, while finish is moderate bitter. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Light and refreshing lager...

JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 So I entered this as the Franco Manca No Logo Lager and it got changed by the system to this, so apparently these are the same beer. Fairly clean and inoffensive lager, a little sweet, moderate bitterness. Drinkable, average.

Bottled 330ml. -from Mercator Rudnik Ljubljana. Pale golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, whiff of lemon drops in the nose. Bitterish grassy, slightly fruity and touch of herbs with short citrusy finish. Pretty watery as well.

BeerViking (3594) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Tap at the Doctor Butler’s Head, malty grass and lemon nose, dry-sweet and crisp, dry hay, a little nuttiness. Decent lager.

MarkoNm (1995) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 30, 2015
Pours a clear yellow golden color, topped with a medium and quickly disappearing white head. Mild fruity nose intially, some grassiness later on. Sweet start, grassy with mild bitterness in the finish. Nothing amazing, light and drinkable. Average.

mzaar (2412) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2015
Fat. Klar guldfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Citrus, gräs och örter i såväl smak som doft. Lättdrucken och fräsch. Lätt beska i avslutningen.

kokkenrolv (212) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle from Lerøy, Bergen. Aroma is small hints of floral hops, tiny hint of malt. Golden, clear, small white head. Light/medium sweetness, light/medium bitter, tastes of bread, cereal, hints of floral hops. Light body, medium carbonation. Good average lager, easy drinking.

jookos (4233) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Tap@wka. Pale golden, clear. Some apples on nose, grsin bready malts, honey citrus. Light med bodied, dryish light tart. Strance lager. Feels like a mix of cider and (lager) beer. Interesting, but quickly boring. Not much flavour, feels gimmicky.

AWS9 (594) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Fairly typical gold lager colour - nothing exciting. Bread-y aroma, with some maltiness. Oily mouthfeel, which isn’t entirely off-putting, but it doesn’t make it the most ’refreshing’ as lagers go. Quite smooth and inoffensive, nothing stands out nor does anything offend. It’s quite bland really.

Tide (2559) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Draught at Rotterdam. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, wet cardboard, malts and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, toast and grass. Very bulky lager.
