Probably my favorite of all the cheaply priced beers. Caramel is the flavor that stands out when you smell and drink it. It is a bit heavy, so dont go nuts drinking it, but if you are a grocery store with limited options and this is here, my money is on this one.

32 oz draft at Huge Ass Beers on Bourbon Street. Clear amber appearance with a small white head. Aroma of toasted grain, light caramel malt and a touch of hops. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with minimal bitterness. Light, clean and easy to drink. Better than I expected.

Aroma: Very malty, cake with slight cardboard, grass and lemon. Appearance: Clear amber with a white head. Taste: Slightly sweet, herbal and dough. Palate: Medium body, medium but very fine carbonation. Overall: High carbonation and taste not too pleasant.

This beer has a really nice amber colour and above average carbonation. This tastes like a solidly mainstream lager with lots of hops and mild malt flavours.

17Beer (291) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Malty sweet bread smells. Pours deep honey gold. Short white head. Lots of lacing. Round tastes of sweet biscuit and malt. Medium carbonation. Slight hop notes in the long finish. Very drinkable.

Rex_Remes (192) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 6, 2017
(12oz bottle, Virginia USA) AROMA: slightky sweet corn/malt, some warm notes, bread/toast, hint of hops. APPEARANCE: light Amber in color (almost ale-like), thin yet oily head, clear. TASTE: tad sweet, tad sour, tad bitter. Some upfront grain and yeast, then a bit pungent, grass, green, slight bitter ending. PALATE: tart and spritzy, cleansing, a little creamy residual. OVERALL: a decent lager. Strong points are its Amber color and balanced drink ability. Not as robust as a hoppy Pilsner, relatively simple and straightforward, but good nevertheless.

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - OCT 30, 2016
12 fl.oz. bottle. Gift from Eduardo Ruiz-Tagle. Pours a beautiful clear amber with a big white frothy head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with subtle malt undertones balancing towards a bready, cakey note. Predominant hints of grass, herbs, some touches of lemon. Taste is a tiny bit sweet with low herbal bitterness, and lots of neutral bready and doughy flavors. Herbs come to the fore again at the finish. Not bad, but a bit watery. Light bodied, high carbonation. Well balanced, quaffable Amber Lager... a bit too light for my taste.

tbonde (338) - DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016
Large [email protected] Airport Hotel in straight [email protected] 7 degrees C. Pours amber/reddish brown with sufficient off white head with OK retention. Aroma of roasted malt and slight hoppiness. Taste mirrors aroma with plenty of well balanced roasted malt and toffee with a slight hoppy bitterness which is retained in the aftertaste. Texture a little waterey. Not unlike a Danish "Classic" brew. Pleasant surprise....well balanced, pure and decent tasting.

0.33 Flasche. Normales Bier, nichts spezielles. Wobei eine gute Alternative zum Pils in USA! Leicht wrzig hopfig, slich.
