Light head. Light and easy drinking. Good malt character. Bit of hop bite at the finish. Very nice overall and good for a session.

At the source. Pours a translucent blonde with a small head. Has an interesting taste of character not like a lager... Not bad, but not what is expected in a lager.

Draft at Bull and Cork, Dublin. The pour was golden-amber type color with some carbonation, a weak initial head, weak lacing. The aroma was light grainy malts and grass. The flavor was light malts, some grainy and bready aspects, immediately followed by an unexpected grassy hoppiness, light-pilsner like, somewhat of the Munich lager style here, more than a pale lager going on for sure. Not bad, yet not that fancy or exciting in the big world of beer.

Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2009
Draft. A golden beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of grainy malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and grain, leading to a bitter finish, where the straw note lingers. The body is a bit light.

Pale green tinged blonde with lacing white head. Grassy nose with an undercurrent of peppery noble hop. Medium carbonation, sweet, grainy, touch of sour pineapple and custard cream. Fairly brief finish.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 20, 2008
Draught. Decent pour, good white head, and fairly durable with it. Mild hops on the nose, with some sweet malt and yeast too. Pleasant on the tongue, with rounded corners on the palate of cereal and hops. Decent lager.

(6+) Aroma is mild to moderate, pleasant mild floral hops. (6+) Average to light bodied. Bit mild/light but pleasant, quaffable. On tap at Franciscan Well, Cork
