oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottled. Deep golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is cardboard, wet paper, some dry sour wood as well. Quite harsh. Flavour is cardboard, some malts and rather papery. Not very pleasant.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
Mostly golden. Thick head. Earthy malt aroma but still macrobrew with heavy industrial elements. Taste is a bit grainy, but otherwise fairly clean with a little bit of fruitiness.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml can (Maxima, Kaunas)
5 Sweet malty aroma, rather feeble, but just a hint of ginger too.
3- light orange, tiny head after a fizzy pour.
5- Very simple grainy body, a little white-bready, sweetish, and perhaps a touch corny. Warmer, some estery retronasals come over.
2 Watery, but with pleasant carbonation. Very little to the finish, almost no hopping , just a tiny tingle, and the malts are thin with no staying power.
9 Fairly drinkable pale lager, more malts than many, and no obvious flaws.

A simply pale lager, medium bitterness. Practical bottles. A pleasant and light beer.

500ml bottle, thanks to Elisabeth for sharing. Clear golden, towards amber, coloured body. Fading white head. Aroma of sweet, pale malts. Papery dry taste profile with hints of pale malts and lemon. Dry in the mouth. Soft carbonated. Possible to drink (at a session in Tromsø, 26.10.2011).

Wenn der ganze Malzsirup nicht wäre, dann könnte man das Bier ein wenig mehr respektieren, aber ansonsten ist dieses Zeug schon recht trinkbar, wenn auch sehr einseitig Richtung Malz und nochmal Malz ziehend. Daneben etwas Karamell und Nuss. Ganz ok.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2012
0,5l bottle. Clear dark yellow color. Small white head, disappears quickly. Metallic, grainy aroma. Watery body. Not much of the taste. Slight grain, faint hints of sweetness. Smooth to drink.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle. Golden with thick lasting head and some lace. Grainy aroma has some, but slight, phenols. Drinkable with nice soft carbonation. On the sweet side but fairly clean and definitely inoffensive.

vipinvelp (3831) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2013
Clear darker yellow with fluffy white foam head, lacing. Aroma is typical lager. So is taste, little sweet. Nothing special. (Moscow 201305)
