not bad for a pale ale. Definitely similar to a Heineken. Looks like any other pale ale but with better taste.

suurjuust (2736) - ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle shared by Mart. Clear pale golden, small fizzy white head. Nose is perfume, watery, weird sweet notes. Flavor is fairly standard macro fare, some malt and industrial notes, paper. Hop extract in the finish and more cardboard. Fizzy mouthfeel.

wombat23 (451) - Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle. A prototypical macro lager in a green bottle: straw color, white head, moderate to high carbonation. Aroma and taste of light malt, corn, faint apple, light skunk. Not great but certainly not the worst in its category.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, quite dark for a pale lager, with a small white head, which doesn’t last all that well. Grassy hops and grainy malt make up the aroma. Leafy, grassy hops up front give way to grain and white bread malt in the mid-palate. The finish is fairly dry, but not too flavoursome. An inoffensive lager.

brokensail (15447) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle @ Zena’s in Orange. Clear, pale, straw colored beer with a short lived white head. Has a touch of a skunk aroma to it. Very cereal/grain forward beer with a fair bit of sweetness. Slight grass and cardboard bitterness. Actually has a light (apple) ester quality to it that I don’t mind. Hints of honey and flowers, too. Actually not half bad, but not great either.

ansalon (2733) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2016
Pours light yellow with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of rye bread, citrus, wet paper, minerals. Taste is quite sweet for a lager with mineral and citrusy notes.

andrepintado (2539) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - FEB 2, 2016

Bottle pour at Morocco in Epcot Center. Pretty poor skunky flavor, but that’s just what you get with a green bottle brew. Cross Lebanon off my list.

labeerinthum (450) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 8, 2015
Bottiglia @ Expo 2015, Milano. Il gusto al naso rimanda al mais. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha scarsa tenuta, con bollicine medie. La frizzantezza ha bollicine poche, con carbonazione morbida a limpidezza nitida. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è medio. Alla lingua il dolce è medio e l’amaro è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è farinoso e dissetante. Il retrogusto è veloce.

Bryggmästaren har sparat på malten i vörtpannan. Låg fyllighet och knappast noterbar eftersmak. Flaskan kan ha stått i solen i en butik i Dahuk i norra Irak där den inköptes nio månader efter buteljeringen.
