flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 A nice light, refreshing pilsner. Great with spicy food. Very light head, and a fizzy, smooth palate.

matstr (23) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
I love this beer! On a hot day, it really hit the spot. Very light, and it doesn’t slow you down. Clear amber colour, very little head (detergent residue on the inside of the glass?)

gripweed57 (2121) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2017
Clear bright gold topped by a small white head. Mild zesty malt nose. Flavor is thin, grainy malt with lots of carbonation. Mild hops in finish. Best served ice cold on a hot day.

phfyysik (1227) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2017
Pours golden clear with minimum white head. Aroma is malts, honey, old bed sheets, some corn, hay. Taste is quite same, only without honey and some dust added. Light and watery beer!

Niller (1679) - Hammel, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle from Fakta, Hammel. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is malt, corn, caramel notes, grain. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Light bitter to sweet finish.

scotty (1192) - SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2017
Pretty much as I’d expected, clear golden colour, no head, no aroma to speak of, tastes of grainy adjunct, hops?? must be some in there somewhere! Pretty poor stuff, I only bought it because it was reduced to clear.

kathouse (1842) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Clear amber with little aroma. Better if you’ve already had several Belgian beers.

borre_m (1540) - NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
Pours clear golden. Aroma is malty, light, bread. Taste is close to water, slightly malty.

mathieuc (3905) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
Pours a very clear shiny golden with no head to speak of and certainly no lacing. Lots of bubbles so surely it is highly carbonated. Nose is pretty tame, really, and pretty much corn exclusive. Taste has a slight acidic edge and is pretty corn-heavy as well. It is dry, though. Body is very light and carbonation pretty high. Watery... Just a weak macro "pilsner".
