ineedbeer (801) - 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

What’s wrong with this. Lager, get it on. Do people who rate beer not like beer? Its a good lager, good german, beery flavoured lager. C’mon. Big bottle from the supermarket. Reminds me of sipping my dad’s beer can when I was little and didn’t like beer. Now I love beer and this servicebale, drinkable, grassy, slightly hoppy lager does the job. A bit thin but refreshing taste and goes down a treat. Grassy, spruce, slightly skunky beer. Went well with my fish and chips. Bring it on. Good

Yellow color. The head went away pretty quick. Soft taste with a light bitter finish.

Low retention and few lacings S: Grains and hops, basically T: Again, grains and hops backbone. Nice balanced bitterness. Metallic end M: Light body. Refreshing. High carbonation D: Good drinkability. A simple and refreshing beer, that’s all [ BA Review @ 9/11/2010 ]

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Smells like disease and looks thin. If this is a queen of beers, it fits well with my feelings about the Norwegian monarchy -- it isn’t really very good, but it works.

Swiezy (21) - POLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Zapach: głównie słodowy, lekko chlebowy, orzechowy z lekkim DMSem Wygląd: żółte, klarowne, niezła piana. Smak: puste, wodniste, lekko kwaskowe, cytrusowe, goryczka o średniej intensywności, ale bardzo nieprzyjemna, skarpetowa i zalegająca, ściągającą policzki, zostawiająca kwaśny posmak po chwili.

This was my first time having this beer. Not much of a taste though. I will be trying it again.

"A bready, crisply hopped, though still malt-dominated pilsner. OK, but has no one aspect that stands out at all. Thoroughly average, maybe juuust under for a thin prickly feel, but refreshing enough as a summer brew."
