hawthorne00 (3672) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Pale gold with a large white head. Grainy aroma with lemon, mild spices and a little cardboard. Quite watery but theres definitely beer in there. Very mild tasting but a reasonable balance between malt and hops. Gentle sweetness, modest and slightly metallic bitterness. Thin but refreshing.

eunck (168) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2016
Light golden beer with almost no head. Some grassy hops in the aroma, tastes mostly of flat corny malt. Thin watery body, not much character, but I suppose that is more or less intended.

mice (868) - FINLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Clear, light golden beer with smaller than medium head, which disappears very quickly. Aroma has yeast, grain and some grass with metallic feeling. Taste has grain, yeast and some stale feeling. Basic lager, not good.

luttonm (5325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Can in Seattle, thanks Andrew. Thin white foam, pretty still clear, dark gold. Canned corny lager aroma, honey sweet sip, rather thick body for a typical pale lager. Some sediment in my can, somehow. Honey corn extract. Not the worst.

mcberko (15439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
Can, courtesy of andrewje (thanks a lot, Andrew), pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out tons of skunky grassy notes, herbal and cabbage notes. Flavour is similar, with lots of skunky notes, grass and corn. Clean enough but super skunky. Typical shitty Euro lager.

Eructoblaster (4011) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Can - 500ml. Pours a blond body with lively carbonation and a thin, lasting, white foamy head. Light, boring malty/hoppy aroma with corny and grassy hints. Taste is rather watery. It carries some herbal and bready notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Ordinary Euro Lager.
