vinivini (567) - - MAY 23, 2014
Golden colour, fluffy white head. Aroma of grain, corn, hay, herbs. Light to medium body. Tastes light sweet & light sour. Watery finish. Hoppy aftertaste. A very average beer.

wozap (250) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Prezentuje się jak wiekszość lagerów, podobnie pachnie i niesmakuje niczym. Oryginalna butelka.

MrBlueSky93 (362) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Not an awful lot on the nose, grass and light hops. On the taste, initial fizz, followed by grassiness and grains, then light biscuit malts. Then a hoppy bitterness and wheaty touches and then a light honey finish. Not bad at all for the style!

YantarCoast (378) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 3, 2015
500ml bottle from local store. Pours pale yellow with a bubbly white head that dissolves almost instantly. Grainy aroma. Carbonation is a bit excessive. Medium bitterness. Pretty nice.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle, 5.4 %. Grainy aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Big stable white head. OK malty flavour, medium bitterness, slightly rough. OK balanced, though.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with touches of malt and hops. Paperlike hints. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with malty and estery notes. Lasting, bitter finish. Rather well-balanced and clean. Not bad for the style.

Maakun (1195) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with small white head. Sweet malts with a touch of fresh baked brown bread. Caramel and light musty fruits. Slight herbal finish with just barely any bitterness. Not a bad lager.

tommann (2979) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours light gold with a large head. Aroma is sweet, grainy, bready corn. Taste is sweet and grainy. Touch of lemon in the finish. Full in the mouth. Good stuff.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle from a Baltic supermarket in Walthamstow. The dark brown glass bottle had me fooled - thought it would be a marzen/darker style of beer. Pours a pale gold with a quickly dissipating head. Not as much aroma or flavour as the previous Melnik I had, more of a standard uneventful lager.
