Canned (thanks ozujsko). Golden colour, big foamy hite head., which turns mediumsized quite fast. Very acidic maizeish noe with some rubbery note. Flavour is acidic maize and some bready hints. No bitterness whatsoever. Mouthdrying and sticky.

omhper (25113) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2002
Bottled. When I first sampled this beer some 9 years ago it was more like sweet, corny dish water. Now things havew obviously changed, as when I tried this now it was golden coloured with brief head. Medium dry and well hopped with bold mouthfeel. Nothing out of the ordinary, but indeed a respectable lager.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle, 50 cl) Clear, golden almost completely lacking head. Slight aroma of.... cardboard?, highly carbonated and a fairly high bitterness that lasts for quite a while. Plain pilsene/lager-type. 091104

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Ljubljana. A straight down the line lager with a long dry hoppy finish. Okay.

3.3
Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Bottle in the hotel room in Bologne. Breakfast beer! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a weak, foamy white head. Pretty standard aroma, light cereal, metal, faint grass. Light sweet flavor with some grainy cereal, sugar, wet hay, grass. Light bitterness. Light bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation. Sweet, crisp finish, mild metal bite, faint caramel, light grassy bitterness and a bit more cereal. A very decent pale lager.

2.3
fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle from Bier-Advent Kalender, Switzerland
Blond color, clean. Boring industrial dry Lager; the usage of unmalted barley creates a feeling of corn; ordinary bitterness.
