pintbypint (3531) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 15, 2011
330ml green bottle. Golden with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing. Nose is grainy and sweet with faint hops. Grainy taste, light grassy hops, low bitterness. A bit of grass in the aftertaste. Generic international styled lager in the vein of Heineken. Somewhat refreshing, but not something I would rush out to purchase again.

kraddel (7713) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2017
Drank from the can. Scent is maltsyrup. Bit sweet, mild hidden bitter touch. Taste is maltsyrup, very low bitterness. Bit sweetm low carbo, thus easy drinkable. Gentle and not to intense. Not bad at all, for a beer to drink loads of. As a beer to taste, though, theres just not much goin on, accept for maltsyrup .

DrNosha (2217) - Wrttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - APR 18, 2017
0,33l eiskalte Dose. Praktisch kein Geruch. Auch der Geschmack ist unaufdringlich wsserig. Etwas Gras und nasses Stroh. Viel Metall. Fast schon mineralisch im Abgang. Hat was von Budlight.

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Can courtesy of cgarvieuk dregs run. Appearance - golden. Nose - light caramel or butterscotch. Taste - more if the same though thinner. Palate - light bodied and thenjoy it falls away a bit. It culd be a lot fresher on the finish. Overall - if an ordinary lager doesnt refresh then it really doesnt do much at all.
