skortila (5472) - Baarn, - AUG 2, 2003
Bought this one at Schiphol Airport. Indeed a dry beer, basically I would say 'dry' means totally uninteresting in this case. Well, not completely, the japanese words and signs were funny and amusing, especially when there are people around you who can explain something about those funny signs. Beer looks ugly boring with no head. Smell is acceptable, not very skunky, some hops and malts are there. Weak however. Taste is empty. palate... what palate? Some points for the funny japanese language.

lear gold beer. Dry crisp palate. Dry malt and a little citrus hop that has a distinct metallic edge. Dry finish with more unpleasant metallic things in the aftertaste.

DwarfeD (3054) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2017
Can from local Albert Heijn supermarket. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Straw, some metallic dusty flavour and herbs. Mediocre.

Bottle at Ms. Big white head quickly diminishing. Yellowish gold colour. Subtle honey and herb taste alongside a light and bubbly mouthfeel. Faint lemony finish under the dominant malt. Crisp and cold is the best way to drink this lager.

DerGantzel (380) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2017
Aroma of malt. Pale and clear with a white head. Medium sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Average lively carbonation and a dry finish. Refreshing but not one I will choose again.

Aroma is a mild hop scent with a hint of caramel. Upon tasting it has a wonderful hop taste with spice and a little burnt caramel. On the palette its rather fizzy but goes down well. The aftertaste is pleasant with a crisp finish.

Was better than I was expecting but still not great. An acrid sort of smell but surprisingly crisp and fresh taste. Unpleasant dusty artificial notes to finish though.

This is like a superior version of Bud. The American Version It is a beer suitable for when you throw a BBQ. But very very expensive. Bottle of bud a is about a quid. this is nearly twice the price and not easy to source. A mediocre light beer, nothing special.

Towey1989 (2116) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, subtle rice, some lemon and slight spicy hops. Taste of grain, some bready malts, subtle lemon and slight spicy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly oxidised, malty bitterness in the finish. Its dry as expected and subtlely hopped. Decent but still a bland lager overall.
