jamesie1857 (2150) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
330ml bottle complimentary in the boardroom at Sutton Coldfield Town FC - Yellow, fizzy, clear with a nice white head. A bit syrupy in the mouthfeel, but that actually gives a boring lager something a bit extra. Not much, but it is there.

A very nice lager with a defined but balanced taste. This was a ’passage of rites’ drink and was much more popular when I was a teenager. It’s a shame it doesn’t seem to be so popular in the UK now. On the plus side this also keeps the price down.

Really enjoy the taste of this beer, easy drank, nice taste and quite smooth.

McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle bought at an international food store in Eastbourne, Seaside Road ( luckily it was available there as a single and not as a fourpack like at Tesco’’s). Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of mild hops, grains, bread, grass, citrus and basement. Boring and unexciting finish. Refreshing and drinkable though.

MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Bought in a shop in Eastbourne and shared with McTapps. Compared with the german Holsten this one is quite dull and sweetish missing that classic bitter Holstern aftertaste. Some corn mixed up with a bit of malt and easy going finish. Not bad at all.

Sjohnh (947) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Drinkable, slightly sweet, some malt, some cardboard. Mildly carbonated. Little else to say...

s_hartshorne (2784) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle boot and shoe ossett. Yellow slight head. Aroma is sweet pale malts taste is same light hops. Ok body and carbonation for lager. Decent lager.

2.6
BeerandBlues2 (13311) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 22, 2014
Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, light corn, and faint spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

1.5
BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Poured from can. Clean gold with thin white head. Aroma is cheap. Lots of hay and coin jar. Mild carbonation. Taste is cardboard (but the nicer type) and general malt. If you focus, you can make out some hops. Ever so slightly bitter. Drinkable.

beeebon (450) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
I have drank this from both bottle and tin over the years. It is fizzy and has a coiny sweetness with a bit of malt and graassy hop in there. Not particularly nice but I can drink it!
