Bottle in the Yak and Yeti restaurant, York. Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin but clean pale malts, no paper. Modest lager character. Very modest tangy citrus. Light finish. Somewhat fresh air but tbere are many worse lagers out there.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 3, 2011
[email protected] (thanks hanniku!). Golden colour, smal white head. Aroma is bready malts, some mild fruits, grass as well as hay. Flavour is rather similar. Clean, but very boring.

omhper (26043) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2011
Bottled, thanks Hanniku! Pale golden, no head. Bready aroma. Dryish and light bodied with some grassy hops. Salty finish with light resiny bitterness. A reasonable pilsnerish lager.

Leighton (23107) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle at Yak Yeti Yak, Bath. Pours clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Moderate cereal aroma, hints of dough and dry hay. Light sweet flavor, mellow cabbage, cereal, low hay bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light sweet finish, some crunchy cereal, mild floral notes, straw. Lighly toasted pale malts. Nice pale lager.

chrisv10 (18838) - DENMARK - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle @ FOneFan. Slightly hazy golden with small white head. Flavour is malt, hay, sweet, hops and a little bitter.

TBone (18671) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 13, 2011
Bottled 330ml (K-Kamppi, ABV 4.7%, BB 10/2011)
Golden clear color, medium-sized white head. Nose starts with hayish, cannabis like aroma, then metal, cardboard and sweetish maltyness. Light to medium bodied. Very expected flavor: harsh, a bit fruity maltyness with strong metallic presence, low bitterness. Similar to Chinese or some Indian lagers. Ice cold I could use this with Nepalese food, otherwise totally useless.

FatPhil (17515) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
330ml clear glass bottle (KKK Ruoholahti, Helsinki)
Has that nasty skunky stank as soon as you open the bottle, gee, thanks for using a clear glass bottle. Otherwise pretty bland and a little starchy. Light palate, a bit watery. Some messy esters on top of the bland malts, a bit fruity, but a bit sickly. Finish continues the sickly mess. Some hint of harshness I think it trying to be hops, but isn’t succeeding very convincingly.
