Looks like "beer". Tastes like "beer". Itís a typical working manís brew. Slightly maltier than north american macro but just as boring.

Iíve had worse. Main problems: Initial aroma is a hit of cabbage water, but luckily that passes and youíre left with the same old grainy corny macro lager aromas. It also smells like my drains, probably because Iíve tipped a fair bit of this kind of shit down them over the years. Second main problem is gluggy cooking oil oiliness at the back end,common to all shit lagers. Actual flavours (when they cut through the glug) are OK, but thereís no way Iím going to finish the can. Iíve got a fridge full of better beer.

gregorymconway (205) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Lingering bubbly/creamy head overtop a crystal clear golden/straw body. Standard euro-fare lager, some cereal/hay and a little skunky note. A lot of grain aromas and not too much else. Crisp finish. Sessionable, you could drink a lot of these, but why?

rjplumer (565) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Aroma is grainy with a hint of skunkiness which is probably due to green bottle. Appearance is clear golden body, fizzy, with a white head about an finger height which does linger for awhile. Taste is a sweet grainy malt. Feels light and wet.

Tonkun (948) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a soda-like white head that dissipated quickly. Grain, floral, perfume. Light crisp body. Sparkling water like finish. Easy to drink

swapp (253) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - FEB 21, 2015
500 ml can, clear yellow color with thin weak white head. first taste are light hoops with medium bitter. taste are light hoops with some kind hidden corn sweetness. aftertaste are light hoops with mineral watter and some kind metallic taste. probably metallic taste is from can. i think in bottle should be a bit different taste.

superspak (3067) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2015
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 3/31/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Pretty clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium carbonation and light-medium bady; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

nuplastikk (4872) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2015
500ml can. Filtered yellow-tan body. Foamy, thin white head. The aroma is kind of shabby...earthy garbage macro-corn tones. Has a touch of skunky noble hops, which make it slightly drinkable. This is still a weak, poor offering no matter how you slice it, a beer made for bums with no taste. Wouldnít get this one again.

puboflyons (2339) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 19, 2015
From the 500 ml. can with an expiration date of 31 Aug 2015. Itís a lager so it pours golden yellow with a highly carbonated overzealous white foamy head. Not a whole lot of aroma. Vague grain, vague pale malts, and thin bittering hops. Light to medium body. The taste is slightly sweet, toasty, grainy, and has a balanced clean hop finish. Nothing that puts this ahead of other beers in this style. Easy drinking.

On tap at IAD. Light yellow white head. Smells like soap. Watery lemons. Did I mention watery?
