Bottle. Pours pale yellow. Nose is grainy cereal malt, bit of sweetness, like bubblegum. Taste is clean, bit of hop crispness. Not a terrible lager.

The 330 can says the open mark was supposed to turn blue at optimal tasting temperature and mine didnt. Shoudl i give it the benefit of the doubt? Likewise it boasts a "Fresh Taste Keeping" system but tasted to me like swamp water. Hmm....

Bottled 330ml. -from Bier Imperium, Vienna. Pale golden coloured, small airy white head, big bubbles of carbonation, weak weak rice presence in the nose. Mineral water with touch of rice and nothing else. Typical East Asian macro.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2011
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pale golden colour with a small foamy head on the edges. Aroma of pale malts and honey. Flavour of pale malts, quite unusual amount of hops and some sweet fruits. Light bodied with quite high carbonation and a dry, sweet malty finish. This actually surprised me. Highly drinkable.

Bottle 330ml. Like making love in a canoe. Aromas of straw; sweet and short-lived taste; thin and watery in the mouth; and pale and headless in the glass.

Ogi found this somewhere anda shared with me (thanks!)
Shiny yellow body, small white head (medium pace). Slightly cabbagey weak nose. DAMN this is empty. Ive drunk mineral water with more flavor than this, and definitely a more pleasant carbonation bite. Thats all that is, slightly stinky coloured carbonated water. There might be a vague something in there but its too battered by water that it cannot be identified. Fresh Taste Keeping? Well it certainly was "fresh". There was no taste though, so we have a problem right there. Fresh Nothing Keeping? Keeping Nothingness Fresh? Who cares. This sucks. I just love these, where the beers only pro is that its not inherently offensive.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with ozujsko (thanks!) who brought it from London I think.
Poured a pale golden colour with a medium sized white head that went away at a medium pace. Sourish nose, notes of rice, a touch of malt and maybe, just maybe hop. The taste is very watery as well, sweetish round the edges, weak weak lemony hops, some eggs... Not as foul as Asian lagers can get, interesting in an odd way (as much as a watery adjunctey pale lager can get), but not a good beer.

No distinct smell at first other than a general sweetness to it & the slightest hints of corn and other adjuncts. After a bit of effort you can also detect some grain and mildly skunky hops. Its not a bad smell just a really weak, faint one. Light, watery looking straw colour that is crystal clear with a small foamy head that quickly fades to leave a soapy lacing. Faint sweetness to the taste as well with some grassy hops in the background and a watered down adjunct corn taste. Very light, bordering on watery body. It is slightly chewy and has a mild, bitter hops in the finish and it was really quite as gassy beer. A drinkable beer that is pretty weak and watered down, it reminds me of cheap lager that is usually served at Chinese or Indian restaurants across the UK. Not bad but certainly not good either. * * * * abarwithnoname.wordpress.com * * *

Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma and flavor are mostly malts. Not that good.
