Lots of malt in the nose of this frothy beer. Very light, foamy head. Taste is of hops and grains. Decent pilsener.

ALLOVATE (2592) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2012
This was one of those beers I had longed for because it was in a book of world beers I had read as a teenager. Weird how reality works!
Pours a medium amber, bright as bright with light, sluggish to rise carbonation. Solid and lasting cap of white no more than half a centimetre thick. Grainy, cereal-like nose; gritty and dry with little noticeable hops evident. Frothy in mouthfeel, light bodied and dry. Lots of cereal grains with little to balance but it is clean and light. A grainy lager and little else. (33cL, BB 07/02/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

vipinvelp (2755) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2012
Clear yellow color with white foam head lacing to glass. Typical barley aroma, similar taste yet bitter enough. Quite long bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all, yet nothing too special either. (Göthenborg 201208)

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle form a Karstadt in Kreuzberg, by 03OCT2012. Nose is dusty, corny malt, pours a pale clear yellow with a soapy white head. Taste lightly sweet and bitter with papery malt, thin and dries a bit, straw strengthens and picks up a little more hop flavor and bitterness with time. Light body.

Decent aroma, but devoid of taste when drunk, however the light texture is palatable.

kevnic2008 (9571) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2012
Pours a clear golden with no head, the aroma is light and the taste has a decent dough flavor that is okay, just ok.

Lowenbrau (2603) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Pale gold, clear. Some malt and herbal aromas. Light body, high carbonated. Taste is malty, some bitterness. Average pilsner, nothing more to say.

BlackHaddock (4846) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
June 2009: Another Spendrup beer available from IKEA in the UK. It is sold here in a 33cl brown bottle (5%). Poured into a stemmed Veltins Pilsner tulip it looked very impressive: A lovely crisp white head sat on top of a mid-range golden lager yellow body. A clean looking beer, carbonisation clearly visible rising to replenish the head. Aroma was barely of anything, some cereal notes, gets my standard score of 3 for a lager. Dry and hoppy at first, then the dryness really kicks in and the hops lose their way. The dryness took over completely and ruined the beer for me. No malts to be found either, a disappointing beer apart from its looks.

Geokkjer (6402) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of fruitiness, some corn, malt and herbs. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some bitterness and herbs. Thin body, lively carbonation.
