FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2008 500ml can. Don’t know if this was the same beer. Just said ’heller’.
Pale yellow, big frothy head. Sweet fruity lager aroma. Slightly grainy taste. A bit watery. some hops but the hops segue into alcohol. Boring. Probably fairly drinkable to lager drinkers, but not my bag.

MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Can, 5.4%. Lagery aroma, hint of hops. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour has a little bisquity malt and spicy hop flavour, but also some rough flavour hop. There is even a little hop bite in the finish, but without the fresh hop flavour that should come along with it.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours lightly cloudy gold with a slight creamy white head. To me the aroma is like light lemon grass. Near med body. Flavor is bready, with some bitter. Bitter is kind of unusual - could be herb/grass, but I’m not really getting a hint of spice. Finishes fairly dry. Better than many East Euro lagers, but this is from Austria, so maybe not a surprise.

imdownthepub (14546) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 660ml. Yellow gold, lightly carbonated, white head. Initially a very pleasant beer, lemony a touch of hop and a crisp malt. The further through the bottle though, a sweetish, cloying palate develops. Enjoyable, but a bottle to share.

bierkoning (13349) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Very pale colored. Glue in the aroma and a bit of malt and apple. Medium to full bodied. Apple in the flavor. Grainy. Some bitterness that lingers on in the aftertaste, in which the glue returns. Sticky. Can. Grainy, soapy aroma. Grainy, soft flowery flavor with a hint of citrus and a soft hopbitterness. Standard lager.

crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Comes in a unique twist off bottle, very nice. It is really fresh, it just became available in the USA I believe. Pours into my Veltins glass with a deep yellow/gold, a nice white head rises far above the rim and produces some nice lacing. The smell is grainy, with medicinal hops, but mostly malt in the scent. Taste is a nice crisp light lager flavor, with a good maltiness but with subtle bitter hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit fuller than most Euro Pale Lagers. Overall its a decent Euro lager that is cheap and would be good for a party beer, impress someone with the fancy bottle. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-27-2009 20:10:28
