ineedbeer (1559) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is grainy with a touch of sulfur and some light corn notes. A hint of a herbal hop aroma. The aroma is fairly clean but there is some light fruitiness as well. Pours a super clear yellow-gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. Decent lacing and medium legs. Flavor starts with slightly sweet malt notes - grainy with some corn to it. A low floral hop flavor is also present as well as a light sulfur note. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Crisp, medium light body with medium carbonation. Low hop astringency and no alcohol warmth. Overall this beer isn't impressive but it is clean and to style. I may be imagining it but there seems to be some light esters in the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gangstergafje (479) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
The beer has a simple pilsener appearance. The color of the beer is goon yellow. The beer is very clear with a rough foam on top. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a little drape of foam remains. Almost no bubbles are rising towards the top. There are some hoppy and malty aroma’s. It is just a normal pilsener aroma. There is a tiny nuttiness though, which was also very strong in the Warsteiner Herb. In the taste this nuttiness is even stronger. There are also some nice fresh hops and some malts in the taste. Except for the nuttiness, the beer is quite simple and just like most pilseners. The beer has a nice tingling sensation in the mouth.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watching Vikings 4x04. Like a macro lager but more expensive. I dont know who could one to buy it twice instead of a much cheaper cruzcampo/mahou/etc. No foam

Pours clear yellow with a white head. Grass and straw aroma. Taste is grain, corn and grass, a little sweet with a little bitter. Not a bad beer but has a but of a metallic aftertaste.

BeerRenter76 (647) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 8/31/08. Have had this one several times both in the mini-keg and bottled, Have to say right off the bat I had the mini keg three times and its always had a strong metallic smell and taste. Bottled is better though, however it is still a slightly below average brew. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head. Aroma and flavor of malt and a little grass with a clean finish

Grisza77 (438) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 6, 2016
Słomkowe, klarowne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat po prostu piwa, czyli głownie słód. W smaku także głównie słód. Goryczka niska w stronę średniej. Ogólnie piwo smakuje jak polskie piwa z lat dziewięćdziesiątych, gdy miały one smak i zapach, trochę mało chmielowe jak dla mnie, ale nie jest źle, w porównaniu do obecnych polskich koncerniaków to dwie klasy wyżej, bardzo pijalne.

glacier (127) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 5, 2016
Barwa jasna, słomkowa. Piana szybko znika. Zapach słaby. W smaku lekka goryczka, trochę kwaskowe. Przeciętne piwo, jak na pilsa słabe.
