Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Draft @ White Horse Inn. Very pale gold/straw. Sparkly with scattered lace. Smells fresh and flowery. Thin and light body. Cold and carbonated. Not the most flavorful beer but very refreshing and nice crisp grassy finish.

500 ml bottle from Tesco. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white eggshell head. The aroma is sweet hay and grains. The flavor is nice; a light refreshing lager, no frills, grainy and light honey. Malty.

As much disdain as there is surrounding lagers in general, properly executed lagers provide a great all-rounder. This is one of those lagers. At home anywhere.

jgb9348 (5565) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Golden coloured body with a light creamy glow and a very nice thick (two centimetre tall) off-white head. Aroma of corn, lemons, oranges, light hops and a touch of metal. Light-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with lemons, metal and some cardboard comes through. Aftertaste shows a light fruity flavour with a subtle hoppiness too. Overall, not such a great beer - fairly mild in flavours, but not horrible tasting at all. Worth a try if you can find this - I thought this was a common find, but it doesn’t look like it is - nice! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from McHughes Off-License in Dublin, Ireland (Republic) on 20-February-2009, sampled at home on this side of the pond in Washington on 08-February-2010.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of hops and spices - among them ginger. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardboard on a lightly malty back ground, leading to a dry finish where the cardboard note lingers. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
[2182-20090520] 500ml bottle. Not much aroma, some toasted straw? Slightly hazy, big medium-lasting foamy white head and a deluge of bubbles throughout. Wheat and straw and some toasted yeast flavour with a tart aftertaste. Medium body. Average, interesting to try.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
2009-05-20. Dark yellow body with a good sized foamy white head and great lacing (3+). Flavour has a sweet pale malt base but has a lot of floral hops to it, pleasant bitterness grows a bit as you go, lingering floral hops. (6+) Hoppy aroma is very floral, noble hops. (6+) Average plus palate is very good for a lager. (3+) Pretty decent lager, but I am not partial to the hop profile. Bottle at Bierhaus, Cork
