Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Riga. ABV is 4.5%. Pale golden colour, large and lasting white head. Pleasant fruity and flowery aroma. Relatively sweet pale lager flavour, light bodied and thin, hints of fruit and honey, low bitterness. Far from exciting, but not offensive either.

crossovert (9585) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Described as an ale but more than likely an EPL. 500ml brown bottle. It pours a straight gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing. The smell is grainy with some noble hops, nothing offensive, average. The flavor is pretty crappy though. it is sweet and husky with some very blunt malt flavors. Not that great.

Bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Light aroma of grain, perhaps carboard. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy. Light bitter finish. Surprisingly rich mouthfeel.

Patrickctenchi (4980) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Slightly hazy, old gold....creamy off-white head. Malt grain aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, a little corn, malt. Creamy and soft. Not a bad beer.

An okey and somewhat fresh lager that works as a thirst quencher and intoxicant.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2008
Had this at Pocono Beerfest. Nothing grand, but not bad either. The aroma was faint, maybe a minor bit of hop. Appearance is prototypical clean yellow, adequate head that diminishes rather quickly. It’s flavor is nothing extra special, hoppy a bit tart as well. It’s ok, but not super smooth. Ok.

foxo82 (810) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
My bottle was 5% ABV from beersofeurope.com. Yellow, fizzy but with a good sized, long lasting head. No surprises in the aroma - sweet, musty malt. Sweet like diluted orange juice and without and noticeable bitterness. Thin and watery. Short finish. Not awful, just very ordinary.

bierkoning (11227) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Hint of peach in the aroma. Medium bodied. Hints of grass and peach in the malty sweetish, bready flavor. Lacks character.

Grumbo (883) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a pale golden colour with a reasonable white head. Aroma of hops alongside sweetcorn. Average carbonation, light sweetnes, slightly bitter, it’s ok.
