visionthing (3062) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
50cl can from Vínbúđin, Borganes. Pours clear straw coloured with a small, white head. Mild grainy and vegetable aroma with just a hint of hops and alcohol. Medium sweet with not much flavours to speak of and slightly unpleasant. Some bitterness is noticeable, but besides that I would say it’s hardly worth drinking.

Reimer96 (1391) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet pale malts and fruity esters. Taste is sweet pale malts, some crisp pil malts and and nice easy bitterness into the finish that is crisp clean. Easy drinking pilsner.

Psytron (1420) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Smell of malt, straw. Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of straw, malt. Mildly sweet. Very light body, soft palate. Very flat carbon. No alcohol aroma. Very soft and balanced for being a basic pale lager.

Ännu en urtrist lager av internationell typ. Inget särskilt positiv som kan sägas om denna.
