Eh, didnt leave much of an impression for me. Watery and light-weight, crisp but bland, inoffensive and forgettable.

Panzerfaust (825) - 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 (324) - 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.

Brentv (658) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2016
From bottle. Clear golden color with little to no head. No lacing. Sweet but otherwise characterless aroma and taste. Thin medium-bodied. Little or no hop character. Rather plain.

Bottle. Actually quite awesome for what it is. Smooth, balanced, traditional. For a lager with this old of tradition it's quite impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a wonderfully traditional beer. It is not meant to be the highest quality beer, but to be the reasonably priced blue collar beer. Much better on tap than in the bottle, however this is true for most beers. If I had my pick this is what I will usually go for. On another note, some of these reviews seem to be for the light version and not the original lager. The clear straw color is Yuengling light, not the lager. The lager pours a darker caramel color

En fin pilsner lidt som en clasic l type. Fin smag uden for meget bitterhed.
