Mike_in_Kansas (23) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into glass mug. Pours a medium clear sparkling yellow color with a very small white fizzy head with minimal lacing that dissipates quickly. Smells of faint grain/hay, with slight citrus & grass odor. Initial flavor is very light cereal with a slight acidic taste, with a short sour/bitter finish. Body is very light with a watery texture and soft carbonation that diminishes in a couple of minutes, becoming fairly flat. Fairly uninspired - would best be served cold on a hot day.

A spanish, golden, crystal clear Lager with white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, toasted bread. Taste is bitter sweet. Pearly.

Den er for tynd. Fin duft, men en vandagtig smag. Brugt i 25 grader som tørstslukker ..... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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?)

phfyysik (1228) - 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!

scotty (1194) - 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.

Clear amber with little aroma. Better if you’ve already had several Belgian beers.
