Vestlake (236) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Can pour. Aroma is standard euro lager. Taste starts out as euro lager as well but it has a bad aftertaste. There are much better out there.

Senka (916) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2015
50cl can for Baltics. Charger Lager its called. With a white horse and all... Pours straw pale with frothy head. Aroma of cardboard, weak malts and some faint hops. Thian and crisp. Very easy drink, and well balanced. No aftertaste at all, feels like you drink water. Smooth and simple. Mixed feelings about this one - I like a well balanced simplicity but I do not like the extremely cheep lager looks and aroma.

jackl (5811) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Keg @ Royal Hotel, Laurencekirk. Fizzy gold pour with a white head. Nose is pretty nonexistent. Just a touch skunky. Some bread. Taste is fairly neutral. Fizzy honey and bread. Light body, pretty drinkable. Not great.

Not bad for a pale lager, nothing much going on aroma wise, typical adjuncty flavor. Not a great beer.

hfmejias (1057) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2015
11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden, small white head and a little lacing. Aroma of corn and yeast combined with some malts. Taste is consistent, lots of corn, yeast and some sweetness from malts. Watery and perhaps refreshing but certainly not great.

radio_nowhere (1210) - Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2015
Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear pale golden color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness. Taste adds slight graininess and faintest fruity note. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Nothing really stands out but nothing wrong either.

nihtila (1828) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
15.4.2014. No aroma from keg, light carbonated palate, taste is watery metallic bulk lager, as unfortunately can be expected.

Chopper925 (296) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
Can. Clear, golden yellow color, medium white head. Somewhat fruity, slightly malty, undefinable smell. Sweetish taste, low to no bitterness. Average fine carbonation, medium to thin texture. Low and short aftertaste, some malt, some nothing. Looks nice, tastes bad, like yellow water, which has seen hop and malt from afar.
