Rex_Remes (158) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: malt, sweet corn, hints of bread, pepper, dairy. APPEARANCE: good color, medium amber, a bit unclear, average head. TASTE: a tad sweet upfront, round malt, decent bitterness. Good balance between malt and hops, sweet/tang and dry. PALATE: clean, fresh, smooth, dry finish. OVERALL: a good amber lager with nice color and flavor/bitter balance. Not overly complex but decent body with more going on than most other mass lagers.

malvrich (276) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2016
6 week old bottle into a pint. A: Poured hard but still little head, quickly down to thin film. Deep clear gold color with a few visible bubbles. S: Malty brown bread and yeast smell. Earthy hops. T: Bitter leafy hops note with a suggestion of citrus . Faint toffee provides nice balance. Not as malty as the nose. M: Average carb level. Light to medium body. Clean tart finish. O: Nothing sticks out here except the taste, which is actually quite good. Well worth a try.

OnTheTrail (418) - Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours clear light amber. Big off white head. Malty aroma of cookies, biscuits, light flowers. Moderately sweet malts, with just enough bitterness to cut am keep it from being cloying. Medium light and very carbonated mouthfeel, quite drinkable.
