sinte (534) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle 0.66L. Pale yellow body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with a fair lacing; nice bubbles coming up from the center-bottom of the glass. Moderate hoppy aroma (flowers, herbal) with a light-to-moderate malty note. Light bitter and sweet flavour: well balanced but very attenuated; short finish. Light body with a watery texture; dry finish; soft carbonation. Honest standard lager, not particulartly satisfactory; in the complex a watery/ dilute feeling prevails.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2007
come out of the bottle a pale yellow with a half inch of frothy white head up top. Has a grainy nose and is reminiscent of czech pils. taste is minimal minus the prickly hops that are forced to the front by the over carbonation.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. Earthy, lemony nose... very subtle... discreet. Maybe a meaty note. The flavor is crisp, but dull and a bit stale... just not much going on. Medium-bodied and spritzy. Short, very crisp, clean finish.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Straw, huge head. The aroma has notes of malt, corn, straw and a bit of hops - and it signals:boooooring.... This impression was fully met in the flavour, that is uninspiring and unbalanced. Life is too short for beers like this....

Marko (5269) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 23, 2007
As Birra della Storia - Il Compagno (Stalin) and shared with ozujsko (thanks!)
Poured a big thick fluffy white head. Chemicals ftw, eh ? Golden colour, lively carbonation. The nose is a bit stale, malty and honey with hints of wine. The taste is... bad. Cardboard, hints of grapes, some hops, a bit oily, but somehow... dry. Almost mouthpuckeringly so. Yet another crappy gimmick beer. How nice.

FrankJohansen (3618) - Sabro, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle. Clear olden colour with a small fizzy head. Pretty mainstream boring pale lager.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a bubbly mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of grass, bit malty and fruity. Flavour is grassy, some malt, fruity with some lemon. Dry bitterish finish. A quite refreshing beer.

SilkTork (5603) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A dull pale lager with a light, dirty bitterness of no distinction or character. Clings to the mouth unpleasantly. Slight whiff and taste of corn. Unsatisfactory.

Wacher (129) - rhus C, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Clear yellow. Medium head. Hoppy nose with hay notes. Sweet hoppy flavor. A bit watery. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nothing special.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Dark yellow colored, little white head. Lively carbonation. Fruits, lemon and esters in surprisingly strong aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also fruity with corny lemon touch, some carbonation also there. Some cardboard in aftertaste.
