Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2017
Can shared at home with the missus. Picked up in Iceland. Pours clear gold with a small, creamy white head. The nose holds simple cereal, pale grains, straw. Light sweet flavour with notes of white bread, low bitterness, a little paper, hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, lots of simple pale grains, white bread, low bitterness. Pretty basic.

Light paper and some crispness. Ok like the concept that airport food is the cheapest meal in Iceland. Tall can.

mabuzzer (956) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
Shared 500ml can. Clear golden with a white head. Absolutely bog standard generic lager. Not much more to say

ianwelby (1566) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
Clear yellow beer, thin head. Very faint metallic aroma. It’s just a slightly-too-sweet lager. Bog standard. Acceptable but... meh.

ANZUShophunter (651) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2017
From bottle in shaker. Pours clear yellow with wispy white head and modest aroma. Crisp and slightly sweet in the finish. Not bad.

1.8
DrNosha (2833) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
0,5l Dose. Hellgelb und klar. Flüchtiger weisser Schaum. Räes riecht Säuerlich nach Getreide und Zitrone. Antrunk ist Zitronenzeste. Herb und etwas Hopfen. Dann typisch Lager. Ganz ehrlich habe ich weltweit schin schlechteres Lager getrunken und nach höllisch scharfem Essen nicht ganz verkehrt.

SVD (2268) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
Sample, Golden beer small head. Aroma is grain, sweet. Taste is the same, typical pale lager

1.9
Braastad (458) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2016
Aroma is starchy, not much else. Flavor is sweet and grainy, little too malty.
