330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of pale malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grass, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of pale malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this an excellent pale lager. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the fairly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Great level of noble hop presence for a Euro lager, with plenty of clean bready pils malt flavors. This had absolutely no adjuncts at all from what I could tell. A really enjoyable offering, one of the best Euro pale lagers I've had. PilsnerDoctor32 (390) - madrid, SPAIN - OCT 7, 2017

33 cl. bottle @ Home.
Aroma: tin can, straw, grains, unfermented grains. Hints of corn. Not very intense aromas. Hints of sulfur when swirled. Very subtle hints of malts and toasted malts and bread crust. No hints of hop aroma.
Appearance: light golden/straw color with perfectly white foam. Average head thickness with low retention and low Brussels’ lacing. Perfectly clear. Foam made of tiny bubbles.
Taste: low to medium sweetness, low to medium bitterness, no sourness. Not very intense nor pleasant flavors. Hints of malts, toasted malts, corn, tin can, grains, unfermented grains, bread crust. Well balanced, sweet at first and more bitter towards the end.
Palate: low to medium body, watery to oily texture, low carbonation, quite long dry finish with low to medium bitterness and flavors of malts, toasted malts, unfermented grains, corn, tin can, bread crust. No hints of hop flavor.
Overall: not very intense nor pleasant aromas or flavors. Hints of malts and toasted malts, but corn, unfermented grains, grains, tin can and sulfur too. Not very good. Nothing to be remembered. It lacks of aroma, color, flavor and so on. Boring and mono-dimensional. Even with all this faults is better than other mass-brewery brews. jobe977 (160) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle (5,4%). Pours clear yellow with small white head thus rather booring appearance. Aroma is malty with a bit sweetness to it. Taste is malty and a bit waterish. Aftertaste gives some sweet notes. Overall ok and better then expected.
