App.: Medium straw, clear, decent tight white head. Aroma: Light green, grassy hops, light malt and grain, that’s about it. Palate: Medium body and medium-soft carbonation. Flav.: Light grassy hops, light cereal flavours; restrained bitterness, and little else.

Drinkable and not much more.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2007
Pale golden in colour, thin whispy white coloured head, some very sporadic lacing. The aroma is quite floral, sweet, some apples, some grass. The flavour is fruity (apples), light floral and grassy hops, crisp, some metal, light pale malts. Mildly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering moderate bitterness, some tin. Basic, plain and simple, not overly exciting.

500ml can from The Beer Store in Peterborough, Ontario for $2.50.
Purchased on January 19, 2007 and opened on February 4, 2007
Best before July 2007.

KnutAlbert (6746) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2007
33 cl bottle. A rather soft pilsener. There is some hoppy aroma and a little bitterness, but not much of anything. All right, but in no way outstanding.
