daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle from case and keg. pours a light yellow. White hea. Corn, corn corn and a tiny touch of hops. Flavor is very fizzy and malty. Tons of grain in the flavor...dman this wasnt that good.

2.8
DocLock (10975) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with white head and aromas of slight hopcit, some honey and pale malts. Tastes bready malty, with some caro syrup and subdued hopcitrus. There’s nothing particularly wrong with this one, but nothing that really stands out either. Not too shabby.

2.5
ManVsBeer (10928) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from off-license opposite Wakefield Westgate station. Pale golden with a very small head. Ordinary European lager in many respects but its redeeming feature is its silky smooth texture.

1.9
Fin (10840) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2006
Bottle Riga Nov 2004, and at Riga airport on draught. This was actually called Zelta Gold it lived up to the colour description, bit lightweight some malt but dry finish nothing to write home about.

2.3
jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Crisp pale yellow, respectable white head and some half decent lacing. Verys light bit of grassy/grainy hops in very muted aroma. Palate and flavour palate are very light, with just a slight bitterness. Boring but inoffensive and fairly quaffable.

1.8
cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Clear pale yellow appearance with a larger white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweet pale malty aroma that’s not that pleasing. Sweet pale malty flavor that’s bitter, a bit skunky, and not that easy to swallow.

1.6
DuffMan (10612) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Can. Standard clear yellow lager with an average unimpressive white head. Aroma is sweet corny grossness, like a malt likra without the petroleum essence lingering in the background. The palate is medium bodied, and way way too sweet without any bittering hops to dry things out. Plastic note in the finish. Blech.

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
Clear golden with medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel notes. Flavor likewise with malty notes.

gunnar (9483) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle, gift from my gf. Pours clear straw colored with a big white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts. Taste is sweet grains, watery mouthfeel. Like so many other pale lagers, this is not outstanding, even amongst water.
