fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2007
Blond color, nice perlage. Light malt aroma. Ordinary Lager, but well balanced. Simple, but here at 2200 m.a.s.l., with only trees water and goats around, every beer tastes better.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2009
33cl bottle @ OdenseBoldklub. Pours a clear yellow with a small white foam. Grain, corn and mais. Sweet & dusty old malts. Watery. Seems cheap and uncharming!

thewolf (11106) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
Pours golden with a fine, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweetish, some brewing cereal, light hay and wet malts. Light lemon as well. Initially frothy and lively mouthfeel, but it soon mellows into near water. Flavour is very mild, some very slight sweet malts. An okay, grassy bitterness in the far finish. Not the worst of its kind.

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2007
12 oz bottle -pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is malt, then medium malt-caramel. Taste is medium malt-caramel then doughy, secondary hops bite. Nice Vienna lager OK carbonation.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma quite bready. Med body. Flavor is bready with not a great deal of hop - but there is some - seems herby. It has also got a grape note towards the finish. Much more drinkable than most pale lagers.

Leighton (10428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours light copper with a mild white head. Grainy malt aroma with corn and sugar. Flavor is sweet, a bit syrupy and not very bitter. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes unpleasantly sweet. I don’t mind Pale Lagers but this one really isn’t that good.

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2009
Thisted tasting. It is golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of cabbage, light malt and flower. The flavour has the same note of cabbage and light malt, flower and the finish is disturbed by a harsh citrus.

crossovert (6928) - Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Rare 12 oz import, prob because it is for an American company. It pours a clear pale gold with a foamy white head that doesn’t leave much lacing. It just smells wrong, like a milkshake or something. The flavor is equally bad: vomit, vinegar, peppers. Horrible beer.
