Pours a one finger chunky white head over a crystal clear golden body. Head disappears but leaves decent lace. Light aromas of pilsner malt, cooked vegetables and not much else. Flavor has a faint honey-like malt flavor up front, a bi of sweetness and a decent hop bitterness playing backup. Not much hop flavor to speak of. Light to watery body. Crisp finish.
Fairly clean, but also fairly boring.

Appearance: 500ml can. Clear golden pour. small head that fades fast. looks like apple juice almost.
Smell: the nose wasn't very distinct. Slightly sweet and malty but not much else is present.
Taste: Very bland and dull. Almost no hoppiness whatsoever. There are some grainy-sweet notes but that fades fast. Malty on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light and crisp. A bubbly and dry finish.
Drikablility: i'd have to be in the mood for a very light drinking beer.

Better than some macros, but not that good at all. This one poured a typical clear golden color but had a nice white head that stuck around and left a bunch of lace om my glass. The smell was of overly sweet maltiness and not much else. The taste was not too impressive with nothing more than some astringent sweetness and some fuel type flavors. Not recommended at all.

Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
Appearance: Pale yellow golden colour with a good clarity, lacing suffers a bit.
Smell: Grassy, cooked veggie, mild herbal hop and some faint sulphur.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Decent crispness in the watery palate, semi astringent grain flavour throughout. Hops add to the astringency, odd metallic flavour middle to end. Finishes astringent and dry.
Notes: Lets say it together one more time astringent. Yet another boring Euro Lager, dont bother with this one it is not worth the $7 a six-pack.

Very light yellow with little to no lacing. Head is very thin.
Smells nice... almost a little skunky. Overall the way a lager should smell.
Taste isn't sweet enough... kinda bland. Grainy finish.
Feels a bit watery in the mouth but overall it's average. That pretty much sums up the whole beer. It's not bad but not good.

The "beer of Danish Kings" eh? Not served in a glass horn, like the 1970s ads...
Clear darker yellow, nice head that laces in snowflake ring patterns, like the grade school cut outs. Strong hop aroma, but not juicy, a trace of sulfur. Flavor begins weakly malty, starts like light brown sugar but then the bottom falls out with subpar mouthfeel. Finishes with an indelicate vinegary quality that's enhanced by the super thin body. I can't give this ordinary drinkability like some Lagers, there's an unpleasant sharp tone to the finish of this brew that spoils the fun.

Appearance: Slight hazed golden white head with ample lacing. Aroma: Herbal dose of hops with grainy sweetness seems like a Heineken or Carlsberg with less of everything. Taste: The grainy sweetness is reminiscient of a forty of malt liquor, last time I buy a six pack of assorted cheap Euro lagers. Mouthfeel: Thin watery shit. Drinkability: Wouldn't mind if I never saw this beer again wasn't refreshing just bad tasting.

Sweetish, bland, boring, tastes the same as other beers from this brewer. Typical Danish lager. Relatively crisp, and without much flavour, some adjuncty flavours noticed, with some sweet malts, pretty boring brew that obviously didn't take much effort to brew.

330ml bottle. I've avoided this particular beer for a long time, due to overwrought memories of skunky Euro-swill. Perhaps it's time for a re-eval.
This beer pours a clear pale golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, somewhat caked off-white head, which renders a bit of drying soap scum lace around the glass as it quickly falls away.
It smells of gritty pale grainy, crackery malt, more than a hint of corn mash, fusel fumes, fleshy apple and pear, and grassy, lightly funky hops. The taste is semi-sweet grainy rice patties, white soup crackers, sour lemon, and some weedy, grassy hops. A fading touch of gasohol lingers.
The carbonation is fairly low, and weakly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, nothing really getting up in its grill. It finishes off-dry, and mildly clammy, the initial skunkiness only present in trace amounts.
Well, a bit better than I was anticipating, but still a plain and underwhelming European Pale Lager. Take a nod from the Bohemians, lads, and investigate the world of hops.

Refreshing club soda like beer, so easy to drink down this water. A little beer taste and sweetness of malt, faintness of a hop. Beats a soft drink. nothing in the way of colour as pale yellow, head, attractive aroma. No aftertaste. A bit aggressive carbonation.

Pours a crystal clear golden body with a foamy head of bright-white foam. The head drops shortly but it maintains a consistent 1/16" surface covering and leaves some very nice lace as well. A combination of grainy malt and herbal hops make up the aroma which is pleasant and inviting. The body is medium/light and couples with a standard level carbonation to leave it gently crisp in the mouth. The flavor is that of almost any basic European lager. The malt and hops meld seamlessly, backed by a firm bitterness. It finishes dry with a lingering note of herbal hop flavor on the tongue. Well made and easy to drink, but lacking in enough character to want you to have more than one or two.

In appearance a glorious golden colour (especially as the sun is shining through the glass as i'm drinking it) the head doesn't appear to want to hang around for very long but am unsure whether or not that is the fault of my glass. In smell and taste it is remarkably unremarkable even for a lager and this is good or bad depending on what you expect from your beers. If you just want some classly looking but easy drinking swill this is quite a good bet, on the other hand if you would like a beer which is actually interesting then this one ain't it.

Had this in St. Petersburg, Russia; it may have been brewed there by Baltic Beverages. Am I being too hard on these pale lagers? After all, they are nothing more than the style dictates. But Ive still had micro pale pilsners that blow these international "premiums" away. Alright, this is immedialtely paler and less malty than the Lapin Kulta I just had, but theres a certain smoothness of character that must be acknowledged. It does seem to be free of the adjunct and addictives of an American macro, and it has a nice lacy foam and plays well in a flute glass, and when I set the glass down, it kicks out an attractive stream of bubbles. But while it has nice sensory character, its still just "beer" taste.

Okay, what can I say? I'm a bit tired of Euro Pale Ales that taste almost exactly the same. Received this in a Beers of the World gift pack and I believe this was the last of the ten I tried. Actually, I gave this to a friend at dinner who wanted a lighter beer but had a taster. Easy to drink and fine after a hot day. However, it's January right now.

Off-yellow in color; ¼ inch white sizzling head. Grainy malts, grass and some earthy notes; warming of the beverage will reveal some fresh cut grass notes as well. Dry and very metallic malts; lingering adjunct flavoringssweet corn and husks. Medium bodied; dry and dull. Maintains that Euro-lager feel, however this is a bit more sweet and dry than its counterparts. Just not sold on this one.

Not much to rave about with this beer as it lacks character and it was dull and boring.It had a large white creamy head with fine-small bubbles.The body was carbonated and clear.The hue was yellow and there was not much lacing.The nose was somewhat metallic and the flavor was blah.The mouthfeel was smooth, watery, thin and light bodied.
