neur0 (815) - GERMANY - NOV 13, 2013
(Flasche) Es hat eine goldgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist getreidig, sehr würzig, voluminös mit einem kleinen bisschen Pappe. Der Geschmack ist eher schal, pappig, süßlich und mit mittel ausgeprägtem Körper. Der Abgang ist wie der Geschmack und im Nachgeschmack bleibt nur etwas von der milden Bittere zurück.

gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Blond lager with good foamy head. Usual lager aroma. A little flat with not much to interest the palate other than a touch of sweetness.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pale straw, white head. Aroma is grainy, and a little papery. Smells a little like an empty cereal box. Taste is medium, a little mineral (all I can describe it as - very neutral). Palate is dry, crisp, prickly - refreshing. Not a bad lager, but I’m really beginning to see how much more there is to beer.

Douberd (1697) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 4% New country tick. Pale golden yellow colour on the body, two fingers of white, soapy head, with average retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass mainly, malts, glue. Sweet taste with a heavy malty flavour. Aftertaste is bitter though, with good duration. Medium thin body, average carbonation. Overall a mediocre one, nothing special but drinkable.

visionthing (2393) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
33cl bottle from Ambrosetti. Pours clear pale golden with a white head. Sweet and lightly malty with hints of honey, caramel, cooked vegetables and grass. Fairly sweet, but somewhat balanced and a mild bitterness is present. Not the worst pale lager, but hardly memorable.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at restaurant, Johannesburg, SA. Rather sweet pilsener malty hinted aroma with light carb and a medium white head. Medium to rich pilsener palate. FInish is not overly sweet rather enjoyable for a lager. Beter than expected.

Psytron (1152) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Smell of grain. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of metal, malt, sugar. Medium sweet.
