tmrmwel (2156) - Bergen, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a finger thick head. Aroma is very slightly bitter, with some not too nice notes of cardboard and grass. Flavour is sweet with caramel and orange, as well as some spicy hops.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Larnaka 12/7 2017. The City of Pale Lagers it seems. I selected a handful of cans from a minimarket and it seems they all were pale lagers. 50 cl can from Habang minimarket. A Lion with an oversized Crown on the Can. I assume that’s how you have to look if you are the "Self Appointed King of Happy Times". Pours clear yellow with big white bubbly head. Subsides quickly leaving lonely patch of foam. No Lacing. Aroma is sharp and sourish. Hay and citrus. Slightly acidic. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is rather bland. Lightly sweet balanced by light bitterness. Not much taste to speak of. Fine when you are real thirsty - and that happens from time to time in Cyprus.

Grzesiek79 (4316) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Beers from BOE. Slabienkie, oj slabienkie piwo. Piana jak na lagera nawet nawet i zdobi szklo. Kolor jasny, bez zapachu. W smaku troche metaliczne, kukurydziano slodowe i z lekka domieszka chmielu, pewnie granulowanego. Brzydka etykieta i zielona butelka. Na goracym Cyprze nie jest to zaleta.

2.3
FunkyF (1220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Flaska från Tychojames. Gul med lite vitt skum. Maltig doft av bröd med lite citrus. Lite citrus i smaken, väldigt lättdrucken.

2.2
TychoJames (1334) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016
Flaska inhandlad av grannen Jocke på Cypern. Gulaktig vätska med vitt skum. En mycket brödig doft med lite löv och kartong. Lätt smak av ljust bröd och gräs på en diskret maltbädd. Aningen vattnig

1.7
arsol (1221) - NORWAY - JUL 1, 2016
Gul klar farge med hvitt skum. Lukter mildt korn og en anelse krydder. Mild vannete med litt krydrete smak. Leskedrikk. Passer under den kyprotiske sola.
