Just some sweetness, nothing else to remark; would be better with improved hop character. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle sampled at 99 Bottles, pours pale golden. Basically just a stronger version of the pale lagers - bred, malt, corn and grass. Nothing special here. saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is pale yellow. Aroma and taste are malt, sugar, hops and notes of citrus. Oakes (19416) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2004
Pale straw colour with large bubbles. Slightly grainy, slighty alcoholic aroma. Flavour definintely leans towards alcohol, with just a little bit of graininess. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2005
Pale yellow, white head. Malty aroma. Very strong alcohol flavor, some malts but the alcohol kills everything else.

Pale yellow, small white head. Malty nose, light alcohol, kind of harsh but not unpleasant. Malty, a bit sweet, medium-bodied with a strong alcoholic touch. Anyhow tasty and clean European strong lager.
Plastic bottle - pours gold white head - nose and taste of malty syrup and sweet grain - medium body FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2008
1.5L bottle (Little Russian booze shop, Tallinn)yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2009
Rich straw colour, brief head. First tasting, very little aroma at all. Fleeting taste of unbleached cardboard, then massive, and I mean utterly massive, wave of fruity esters - peach and apple. Then the booze comes over, almost vodka-ey in its direction and potency. Once that subsides, the cardboard’s back again, alas. Finish is a mixture of the tastes. Didn’t finish the bottle (well, would you?), so revisited the next morning. More aroma, but still rather nondescript. Esters are less outrageously prominent, and not quite so cardboardy or boozy either (recently brushed my teeth, though). Per style, this is pretty competent, but it’s not the most delicate style under the sun, that’s for sure. The 5 for taste might be overly generous, but there really is plenty of beery taste in it, and it’s not that rough at all, but the 7 overall is there to counter that generosity, as, hedonistically, it’s not something I’d go out of my way to drink (but it’s not bad, don’t get me wrong). If you’re gonna get wasted, this bottle’s a good choice.
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. Fruity, sweetish nose with pale malts and some higher alcohols. Sweet, full-bodied and warming in the mouth, with fruityness and some bitterness. Not much bitterness though, neither initially nor in the very end. Overall it’s not really a bad beer, but the higher alcohols are a bit disturbing, and I won’t miss it if I never am to drink it again. 090829 Benzai (16923) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle @ home, thanks to a colleague. Clear golden color, decent sized white head that diminishes rapidly. Smell malts, some sweetness and believe it or not peanuts! Taste isn’t much better: malts, sweet, and again peanut-flavors. That does not belong in a beer. Fizzy carbonation, thin texture, alcohol clearly present, low body.
