Fatehunter (2533) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2012
Poured into pint glass. Only a faint covering as head. A nice clear, golden color though. It smells like grain (barley) and a slight metallic note. Smooth taste of malt without the sweetness, mild bitterness middle to end. Medium and crisp body, bubbly but not too much. Great tasting, poor appearance though.

0,5 l can. Pours clear golden yellow with big white head. Aroma of malt and bread, very subtle floral hop notes. Flavor is similar bread with floral notes, somewhat grainy and grassy. Very light bitterness. Body is medium, texture oily.

kraddel (7693) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2017
Blind tasting out of a black glass/ Sampled together with Dr. Beer . Smell is corny malts, not much hops, mild fruityness ( orange) that is rather hidden . very subtile touch of bitterness. Very distant ambermalts. taste is sweet, corny malts, very mild bitterness. Very mild buttery notes, not sure of dyacethyl? Some ambermalts. Mildly astrigent. Very mild caramel notes. Aftertaste is weak. Not very refreshing, rather easy drinking.

Simple straightforward light beer minerality turns metallic on the pallet. Balanced and underwhelming

hman43 (1483) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2017
It pours golden with a white head. Head retention is moderately low. It has a strong herbal aroma that is grainy sweet. The is a hint of honey in the background. It is grainy sweet with a moderate fruit flavor. The fruit flavor is pear like in quality. It has a moderately light body with a grainy sweet aftertaste. Overall, this is a grainy sweet fruity beer.

BB 07.03.2018. golden clear shiny color, medium big white head. smells of ripe fruits, cardboard, grainy, not very good smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes grassy, ripe fruits, grainy, cardboard. finishes lightly bitter with notes of grass, cardboard and some ripe fruits. not a fan of this one, maybe something wrong with the can.

Iphonephan (6818) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2017
From a 50 cl bottle in Brodske Slovakia. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Bready aroma and flavors. Pretty decent beer. Puts U.S. Budweiser to shame.
