yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2008
Can. Pours a golden, clear body with a white head. Hay, grain, malty sweetness and a whiff of canned pears in the aroma. Not foul, just boring. The flavor on the other hand, isn’t just good, there’s a alcohol touch to it that is rather uncomfortable, as well as grain and grass. Some fruityness and bitterness too. Thin in the mouth, and lightly fruity and bitter finish. Not a beer you would like to repeat. (080312)

Can. Light yellow, no head. Clean, malty flavour. Not very bitter.

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2006
Can (BB 02/2007).
Golden color, mostly vanishing white head. Fruity apple-like aroma. Grassy, grainy flavor but same time quite nicely malty. A bit fruity too. This wobbles between a normal malt liquer and a good European strong lager.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Golden colour. Light nose - balanced between hay and bread. Flavour has a slight hop accent, rather light in body, low in bitterness. Light, clean, and balanced.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Can at home in London. Pours crystal clear, bright gold with a large, sturdy, white foam head; listen, this beer looks pretty much perfect, so on appearance it’s a stunner. Nose holds lots of rich cereal, some hay, lightly toasted sugars. Medium sweet flavor, plenty of bread, suggestions of alcohol, light honey and apples, almost no bitterness, perhaps just some light hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with modest crispness, lots of bready sugars, some further honey notes, cereal, hints of corn. An interesting beer. It falls somewhere between pale lager (lower ABV pale lager, that is) and European strong lager. I certainly would not call this a straight-ahead pale lager, as it just has a bit too much kick; at the same time, it isn’t a classical European strong - it just isn’t syrupy enough, it doesn’t have any alcohol warmth. Aside from this identity crisis, it’s a fine cheap Polish lager.citrus,

50cl bottle. Medium off-white head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, some herbal, light spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, light spicy/grass. Light-medium body, light stickiness.

Canned. Thanks to larsniclas. Golden color, white head. Malty aroma with some spicy notes. Malty, grainy flavor. A touch of alcohol and with a rather weak finish.

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2004
Golden beer with gone-before-you-notice white head. Very weak malt aroma. Thin bread flavour, with hardly any aftertaste. Nothing unpleasant about this beer, but nothing interesting either.

gunnfryd (11058) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2008
Can. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is hay, malt, fruit. Flavour is hay, malt, fruit, hint of alcohol, mature pear. Boring beer.
