LazyPyro (176) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
500ml bottle (seems to be shaped like a keg which is nice and different from standard bottles) from Beers of Europe. As the name suggests it has a nice golden colour, with a frothy white head. Malty and mild hops, subtle floral hints to the aroma. Taste is a little sweet, malty. Easy to drink, refreshing.
April 2015.

SarkyNorthener (3347) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle from WB Stores, West Bromwich. Golden beer with small head and patchy lacing. Aroma of pale malts and light spice. Taste is some spice, a little hop bitterness and dry malt. The better of the three I have had from this brewery.

dnicolaescu (1440) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 23, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL by Efes Moldova. Bottled March 2015. normal sweetish lager aroma, a hint of metal. Sweet malty taste, smooth soft body, no hops whatsoever. A clean, but boring sweet lager.

Hamirubi (369) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2015
50cl bottle, a present from a Russian colleague. A great bottle, and a great looking beer too: Golden colour, thin foam. Rich malty flavours make this a lovely quenching lager.

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle (The best design of bottle other than Viru in the world) from Beers of Europe. Pours gold, single finger head. Aroma of lager malt, touch of fruit, very malty, caramel. Strong on the malt on the taste, then caramel, some fruity hops, grass, honey...or should i say HONEY, decent carbonation, a touch of floral taste also. Not bad!

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Continental Food Store, Wakefield. Clear golden coloured with a small carbonation and next to no head. It’s a fairly malty lager, most notably in its lingering aftertaste, but this is by no means a fine example of its style.

andriesradu (615) - ROMANIA - SEP 13, 2014

MarkoNm (1898) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 13, 2014
Pours a very light golden color with a generous, solid white head and a decent retention. There is virtually no smell for the nose to pick up. The taste starts on the sweet side and is followed by a bitter body. Finishing with decent bitterness and slightly spicy aftertaste. Not bad.
