MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle. 1PT. 09 oz. Pours pale yellow with nearly zero head. Aroma has a vegetable quality to it, lightly unpleasant at times but with enough hoppiness to save it and a sweet maltiness that comes through once it gets enough air. The palate is fairly good, medium carbonation, medium in body. Flavor is somewhat sour cabbage, some carrot, mildly bitter but after a sweet and malty front. Finish is light and almost okay, it leans towards something nicely hopped and fairly dry but gets screwed up with a couple off flavors I can’t define. Good bitterness, good palate, everything else is lacking. It gives me that malt liquor type corn flavor I’ve grown to hate. Better than the last few beers off the same shelf though. Just a touch more hops might have covered up all that vegetable yuckiness. I guess I got quite a ways to go before I kill the eastern bloc section at Topp’s because I’ve not even gotten through the first half case. Hope this one will continue a streak of unskunks.

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 29, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Clear light golden with medium to thin white head. Lacing OK. Aroma.. thers not much of it.. water, bit malt and bit hops. Nose very poor. Light bittersweet. Theres nothing much pleasant about this beer thou at least theres nothing much unpleasant. If your aim is to have a looong night and get drunk with cheap beer.. go ahead. Good for refreshing purpose.

visionthing (3427) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
50cl can from Riga Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a short lived white head. Lightly fruity aroma with pale malt and hints of cooked vegetables and hops. Medium sweet with a mild, but somewhat decent bitterness. Still a fairly standard pale lager. Utterly boring, but drinkable.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled. An anaemic pale gold coloured beer with some beige bubbles for a head. The aroma is corny with some buttery notes and doesn’t draw you in. The taste is thin, with just a little grassy hop. Inofffensive but very dull.

brokensail (12519) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 11, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden straw with a small white head. S: Same pruney, cloying sugar smell as many other lagers from the region. Horribly sweet with a little bit of metal and bleach. Apple juice and corn syrup only add to the problem. T: Sweet corn syrup and cereal all the way. Mild malt flavor gives just a bit of bread. No hop character or bitterness at all. Straw flavor is pretty much all the contrast you get from it. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: I don’t think I’ll be repeating my purchase.
