Lore (1224) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 28, 2012
golden colour, notable white head; nothing special in the aroma, some corny sweetness and significant hoppy aftertaste (which is quite positive); nothing extra, but OK lager

SheffieldSteel (115) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - DEC 2, 2012
500ml can. Pours large white head. Colour is pale gold. Aroma of lemon and some winey notes. Taste is dry and crisp with medium sweetness and light maltiness. Some lychee and exotic fruit in the aftertaste. A run of the mill, standard lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
500 ml can, as Union Svetlo Pivo, shared by abemorsten. ABV is 4.9%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Dusty and grainy aroma, hints of over-cooked vegetables and wet cardboard. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is moderately malty without any off-flavours, very moderate but noticeable hops. Easy drinking, must be an acceptable refreshment on a Slovenian beach.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 Bottle 0.5 L. Clear yellow body with a small, frothy, white head, fully diminishing with virtually no lacing. Faint malty and hoppy aroma. Flavour is mainly bitter with some light sweet malty note. Light body with a watery texture; soft carbonation; moderate metallic feeling in the finish.

66 cl bottle. Yellow beer with stable white head. Some grassyness on the nose. Aroma is grainy, slightly metallic with a moderate hops presence. Sweetish in mouth with a peppery feel. Alcohol is noticeable, carbonation is moderate. Simple lager, nothing bad, nothing nice.
