yngwie (13218) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense white head. The aroma is mostly fruity, all weak, with some pale malts. Grassy too. It’s quite dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, and with medium body fullness. Some metallic notes in the flavor, but mostly it’s fruity and grainy. A faint bitterness too. Well, nothing impressive going on here, but except for the metallic notes it’s quite flawless. 131228

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
Pale yellow. Aroma of slightly skunky herbal hop. Sweetish corn-malts, faint herbal hop. Ok industrial and bland but with a tiny bit off hop character.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

Christian (11029) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Yellow with a small white head. Thin grainy aroma. Watery sweet flavour that actually leaves an impression of malt.

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle in Bulgaria. Pours light gold, very little head. Faint malt aroma, some grain. Very light flavor, with some weak cereal and corn, and very little bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish. Nothing special. Easy drinking.

rlgk (10119) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2007
Not sure if this is the right beer. My bottle (360 ml) said ABV 4.6 and my searches told me this was really a pilsener. But anyway: Pale golden color, small white head. Butterscotch aroma, fruity notes and toffee. Bready flavor, malty and with some hops.
