MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2014
Simple und nicht annähernd inspirierendes Piwo ohne große Punkte. Recht trinkbar, aber im Grunde aromen- und ideen los. Vielleicht etwas Getreide und Malz - das war es dann auch schon.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
Beer pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of straw and grains. Taste of mild hops, light malt, caramel, sugar and leaves. Watery and thin finish. Average and boring.

Marduk (2467) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. Golden yellow color. Small head, disappears quickly. Metallic notes in aroma, faint hops. Malty flavor with mild hoppy ending.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Nach 3 Tagen Bierabstinenz durch einen Erkältung nun endlich wieder das feine Gebräu, fruchtig-frischer Geruch bietet dieser russiche Kamerad. Süßer, dann herber Antrunk, bei dem der Alkohol durchzudringen scheint. Malzig, weiter etwas süßlicher Mittelteil, der Hopfen wirkt hier etwas penetrant. Der Nachgeschmack ist zuerst wässrig, dann setzt ein etwas komischer Geschmack ein, penetrant, etwas malzig, billiger Hopfen, komisch. Geht so. Test vom 14.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,7,7,4,4,6 - 6,00

ARMed (597) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2009
A typcial mass produced brew. This is more flavorful brew than your typical mass produced brew. The flavor is slightly tart and grainy. Otherwise, it is not too bad.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2008
Had this with the Philly chapter of the Devonshire Knights. Pour similar to the regular Lager, pale yellow, small head kind of fizzy. Mix of corn and grains with hops thrown in. Dry finish with a little bitterness. Ok but not a drinker for me.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2008
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Pale yellow, dishwater head. Slightly sweet plasticky lager aroma. Not too fizzy, which is nice from a bottled lager - rare to give such a beast 3, to be honest. One initial kick of something reminiscent of some sweetie I used to eat when I was a kid, and a hint of alcohol, but after that, it mellows down to be quite drinkable. It’s more malt oriented than many cheap pale lagers, which means that there’s not so much of the nasty cheap hop extract. Slips down pretty OK for a while. The slightly tacky drying late finish stops it from being something I’d want to drink a second pint of though.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow colour, short head. Aroma and flavour of some malt, grains a and some caramel. Simple.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle from nestalgia. Utterly disgusting in every way. Aroma is metalic cardboard, alcohol, skunky grainy mess, honestly one of the poorest iv ever had. Taste is similarly awful, i couldnt drink it as hard as i tryed to, 2/3rds went down the drain, and thats very very rare with me.
