UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 Cerveza de un color rubia clara, la espuma dura lo justo, sabor bastante agradable. Lo mejor, la original botella.

Bottle by Ostrava Santa. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma and taste are malty and hoppy, quite bad beer.

TedE (1535) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2017
300ml bottle into schooner glass. Great bottle. Golden amber beer with light carbonation and lasting fluffy white head. Nose of sweet malt and distant vinegar. Full-bodied and malty. Finish is grainy with malt and late bitterness. Easy-drinking superior Euro-lager.

A bit sweet/malty, relatively old can from the beer store (slightly before the 1 year as the canning date BB date), I wouldn't rush out to get his but it's not bad.

pootzboy (1824) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2017
Can from the beer store - Pours a a medium clear gold color with a 1 finger white cap that disappears quickly. Aroma is is faint and commercial with maltose-dextrin smells and little else. Clean, no off tastes, sharp edges-lacks conditioning acuate LME dextrin tastes and light hop presence - instantly forgettable.

BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
Really cool bottle... I had the can :( Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is lightly malty. Taste is very mild with a slightly dry finish. There are faint malty notes and some light herbal hops with a hint of cedar. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. There’s nothing bad about this but there’s little going on. In my opinion that’s better than a bud.

MarcoBasile (467) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2017 Pours out pale golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, grain and sweet corn. Taste is a light sensation with a little malty and cardboardy flavors.

30cl bottle from a local supermarket. Thin creamy white head. Clear golden pour. Malty aftertaste. meh.
