500ml can I find myself going back to this one fairly often, I’m not sure why. I guess there’s just not many ambers you can buy in singles, and this one is always so readily available. Pours a nice dark copper with a generous head that fades to minimal lacing. As ambers go, this one is weak, and lacks complexity. There’s some mellowness in there, but like most Faxe products I’ve had, it’s hard to identify what you’re supposed to like in this beer.
A can from Simple Mart down the road. Aroma: yeast and grass. Appearance: clear, dark honey brown, white lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, rather soft carbonation, some sweetness at the finish. Taste: medium sweet, something floral. A disappointing metallic hit at the end though. Alright, a marked improvement on their pils. ogivlado (7810) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 1, 2017
Canned 500ml. -from random gas station near Novara, Italy. Straight from the can. slightly caramel nose. Sweet malty, caramel, touch of corn and metal with rather sweet finish. So-so. YantarCoast (1368) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 6, 2016
500ml can. Pours dark yellow with a small white head. Not really amber. Aroma is weak caramel malt, cereal. Taste is the same - subtle caramel, cereal, medium sweetness. Feels more like a regular pale lager really. Ferris (15270) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
Can - Corn, apple and some caramel. Clear amber with a light beige head that fades quick. Caramel and a touch of toast. Not as bad as the nose. ilya13911 (58) - RUSSIA - AUG 30, 2016

Can - Pretty boring for an Amber. Some cereal notes, some caramel. Watery. The color is not even really copper-like. Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a nice, frothy head. Very little carbonation is visible. Head quickly recedes to almost nothing. Slight metallic tinge that may be from the can. There is a small bit of caramel malt aroma in the background. Medium-low bitterness with a bit of malt sweetness. Light bodied and quite fizzy in the mouth. Very abrupt finish.

Plechovka 500 ml z Tesca. Zlatá farva, jemná pomerne vysoká pena, aróma sladu. Chuť sladová s minimálnou horkosťou. Pre mňa horšie europivo. DoctorHU (535) - UKRAINE - OCT 15, 2015
Beer dark amber color with a medium-grained, persistent foam. In lightly greased flavor: slurred malt-candy sweet, buttery, light ether and water colors - specific, restrained caramel and buttery flavor with a specific essential color.
The body is not very dense in flavor: mild malty sweetness, corn, muffled notes of caramel, buttery-essential tones.
The aftertaste: fast fading caramel, oily notes and very light hop bitterness with essential color. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
Can. Clear amber with a thin head. Cheap cereal and corn notes, grainy. Sweet and thin without much bitterness or body of any kind. Pretty poor.
