Not too bad. Slightly sweet aroma. It has a pretty clean taste with a slight hoppy bitterness. Pale yellow with light carbonation.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2004
A very clear pale gold color, but the color isn't dull. The head is wimpy and fade completely in very little time. The hop smell is similar to a Heinekin or Beck's. The flavor is light, with a light bitterness in the back. Nothing special.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 5, 2005
Canned 0,50L. Yellow pale color, much watery, good fizz and liveliness. Modest and compact foam, but good persistence. Simple scent of alcohol, fresh grass and malty, little hop. Amazing taste. Much prickly, fresh with a light tip of anise. Moderate and pleasant bitter, fresh malty final.

Korngul tåkete med tynt hvitt skum. Malt og noe humle lukt, frisk og god lager. Ikke så mye mer å si om denne, men morsomt med nytt land :-)

haukur (1285) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 8, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 re-rate : well, sure it has got corn in it, and sure, it´s lacking alot of character, infact, it´s lacking a bit of everything, BUT there´s nothing wrong with this, very easy going brew

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
Far better than I thought it would be. It’s pale yellow with a fair amount of carbonation and a slightly herbal hops aroma. It strikes a nice balance between the bittering hops and a fair amount of malt flavor. A decent lager.

TheDog (523) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle. Medium white head, aroma of citrus, straw and grassy hops. Very clear light golden colour. Soft and easy to drink ´cause of the balanced bitterness. Thin and watery but great "thirst-killer".

Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
Pale yellow of color with a cloudy white head. An aroma of malt, corn, dusty and hops. A flavor of butter, corn and hops.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Tap in Höfn. A decent enough lager. Pretty dry, slightly bready, no adjuncts noticable. A minor amount of crisp hops even show up in the finish. Mostly drinkable with a nice body. Leagues better than its main competitor, Gull.
