BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
568ml can (Imp Pint), sat in the garden soaking up the sun on 15th March 2017. Decent enough quench thirsting beer. Clear golden pour, fading white head. Slight corn leanings in the malt led brew, mild hop bitterness late on. Nothing special, but equally nothing bad or wrong with the beer either.

vsyrbu (68) - MOLDOVA - JAN 12, 2017
simple but good lager. The smell of bready-flower, taste basically the same. Hop a little bit. Quite simply, for fans of light lager

AtronSeige (1512) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 4, 2017
Aroma: Medium-light grainy, corn. toasty. Light spiciness as the beer warms up. Appearance: Brilliant, light-golden colored body with a medium-sized, white-colored head with fine bubbles and fair retention. Flavour: Medium-light corn, soft, white-bread crust. Medium-light bitterness, but the beer is slightly balanced towards the malt and sweetness. Light spicy notes. Medium- dry finish with lingering bread and a slight spicy note. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation, smooth. Overall: A smooth, easy drinking beer with nothing offensive to it. The lowered bitterness will probably make it more easily acceptable to new beer drinkers. 500 ml can, poured. 4A. Munich Helles

Poured from a 0.568 l can (so its 1 english pint). Pours clear yellow color with medium head. Retention is not bad. Faint smell of apple or a bit pear. Tastes water... a bit sweetened... some bitterness, very faint malty finish.

Puszka 568ml. Bardzo jasny slomiany kolor. Piana biala obfita ,pod wzgledem wizualnym wszystko ok. I tutaj koncza sie pozytywne aspekty. Zapach odrzuca kukurydza mokrym kartonem chemikaliami i jajem.w smaku podobnie ..slodycz..kukurydza i woda..ochyda.Plus za pokrycie topu aluminiowa dosc estetyczna folia ,ktora powinna byc higienicznym obowiazkiem w przypadku puszek.

AntonyWilson (327) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 4, 2016
500ml Can:Pours a clear pale yellow with frothy white head that persists. Aroma of hay, fruit and caramel. A slight green apple with slight bread crust on taste. Body is light and carbonation is high. Finishes slightly sweet, bitterness is medium to low. Overall not too bad, however, i have had better lagers.
