This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated hazy yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was grassy and lagerish. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mildly vinous banana hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

March 2010. Bottle. Poured straw yellow with a white head. Aromas of malt, yeast, corn and grass. The alcohol is showing too much for this to be an enjoyable beer.

Pours a cloudy pale amber color. This head dissipates quickly to thin white film; moderate lacing. Aroma is light malt. Taste the same, with some booziness and a hint of sour raisins. Medium body, slick, soft carbonation, astringent finish. This beer isn’t as bad as the ratings would make you think. I probably wouldn’t have picked it up, if I had looked first. It’s okay. I’m not even going to dump it.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Sweet grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

golden amber with minimal head. sweet and corny, unpleasantly so. not a good beer whatsoever.

Bottle. Yuck. Pours a hazy yellow with almost no head. Aromas of sweet malts and alcohol. Flavors of sweet malts, corn, metal and alcohol. I was almost scared to finish the bottle after tasting it.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of bread and toasted malts with light floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Nothing special here.

Bottle from Alko. Golden beer with white head. Alcohol and bready malts on the nose. A bit alcoholic taste is a bit sweet with decent maltyness which makes a good body. Not so bad, I expected less.

cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Pale Lager aroma. Somewhat hazy yellow/orange appearance with a white head. Strong Pale Lager flavor with pale malts and alcohol. Not all that easy to stomach.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Slightly hazy yellow, small ring of foam. Aromas of soapy hops, malt. Taste is sweet with little to balance it out. Somewhat nutty and carmel-like aromas come out, but don’t improve it much in the absence of roasted or hop flavors. Tastes like malt at least rather than cheap adjuncts, but doesn’t have a very good balance.
