Grima (2091) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Schöne leicht dunkelgelbe Farbe, grobporiger, jedoch stabiler Schaum. Der Geruch ist leicht süßlich und hopfig. Der Antrunk ist genau das Gegenteil: malzig und würzig. Schmeckt auf jeden Fall mal sehr lecker! Zum Mittelteil wird’s etwas hopfiger. Einziger Nachteil des Bieres: Es ist nicht allzu süffig. Aber ansonsten ein durchaus gut trinkbares, vollmundiges würziges Lager!

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - DEC 14, 2011
Lager europea a tutto tondo. niente di particolare da rimarcare, dorata, schiuma media, aroma erbaceo, in bocca dolce. c’è di meglio anche in slovenia.

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
4.9% gold colour with a poor head, malt aroma and taste, a warm weather beer.

luttonm (2192) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 22, 2011
.5l Can, another old timer that I haven’t rated yet for some reason, bought at Super Vero in Belgrade. Rich yellow lager pour, minimal head, perfume and something like alc. deadened flavors but quite respectable macro for these parts. Would enjoy trying in bulk instead of the normal availabilities to see how that balanced out. Tastier and more appealing than most
