harrisoni (14681) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2007
500ml can from a Polish supermarket in Ashford. Gold colour with thick lasting white head. Yes it has a lager malt aroma, some fullness in mouth. Not too sickly, some juicy malt. Some bit on the finish. Bit of metallic finish. Not entirely awful surprisingly. Nice lager actually.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
Can. Sweetish fruity aroma.clear golden colour. Caramelly and flowery flavour. Tastes as if something was added, but it is probably just the hops.

Can (BB 01/2008)
Courtesy of oh6gdx, thanks Pade! Very pale yellow color, big bubbles, small white head. Papery malty, sweetcorn nose. Foamy lively carbonation. Sweet corn malty flavor, alcohol harshness. Some apply flavors. Empty alcoholic finish. Pilsener? No.

Leighton (13330) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Can at home in London, shared with Lyoli. I picked up this gem somewhere in Hackney. Pours clear, bright gold with a small, white head. Nose has some mild, ripe orange, grainy bread and lightly toasted sugar. Medium sweet flavor, some toasty and grainy malts, subtle caramel malts and alcohol, mild semi-ripe citrus. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Medium sweet finish with light, sticky sweet toasty malts, light grains, very light alcohol presence (impressively), some mild fruit notes, mild hay bitterness. It’s a decent Eastern European strong lager.

Oakes (13174) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
Today was supposed to be the day I visited the Tatran brewery in Slovakia. Because I got screwed out of that, I had to settle. That’s an understatement, actually. Golden colour. Limp, watered down flavour and aroma. Hint of malt but bugger all for hops. Not a pilsner and not worth trying twice.

rlgk (12519) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2003
Golden, with a quickly disappearing head. Not much aroma, not much taste, but something is wrong with this beer. It feels weak or old.. At least its not a good one.

bhensonb (12039) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours dark gold with a foamy white head. Light grainy aroma. Medium body; foamy carbonation. Flavor is light malt with a small amount of bitter. The whole thing is rather light, but the herby/grassy bitter sticks in the mouth. So it’s a long bitter finish. Pretty drinkable.
