The colour is deep gold. The beer pours with a slight fizzing sound. The off-white finger thick head slowly sinks down to a thick lid, leaving no lacing.

The smell is frowzy with a dense sweetness, hints of margarine/butter scotch and mixed unbalanced hoppy flavours.

The taste is sweet and insipid. Oxidized notes of leather and paper. Artificial notes of saccharine and fructose. Some passing fruity hops. The bitterness is low, as are the body. The aftertaste is stuffy with hints of wood and paper. Some metallic bitterness in the finish.

The carbonation is at first strong and sharp, but the small bubbles fades quickly. The liquid is a little creamy.

A rather unpleasant lager, this one.

The beer is pale straw colored nearly a tan nuance, a white head that leaves very little lacing.

The smell is mostly in the sweet area, malty - gruel and hay.

The taste is also sweetish, sweet bread, a bit metallic sourness, and some cardamom.

Rather low carbonation, some coarseness but rather watery feeling in all.

For being a mass-produced beer in a plastic bottle quite OK, but not a favorite of mine. Best feature is maybe the bottle that gives little extra weight ...

I bought myself a plastic 33 cl long-necked brown bottle with a beige label that covers almost the whole bottle. There's a picture of a sailing ship.

A: A golden beer with an airy white head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving some lacings.

S: Yeast and butter. Caramell malt together with floral hops - smells English.

T: Butter and floral notes. Some caramell malt.

M: Thin body and richly carbonated. Aftertaste is medium long and bitter.

D: For beeing a macro-beer - it's not bad at all.
