TBone (14900) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Pale yellow, very small white head. Quite typical bulk lager papery malty nose. Clean basic lager, slightly sweet malty with decent carbonation. After drinking lots of bad bulk lagers it is nice to have a good bulk one.

Bottled. Pale golden colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma of malts and lemon. Flavour is malty and hoppy, with some fruitish hints. One of the cleanest pale lagers at our "Swillfest" with Tbone_ .)

gnoff (9283) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2006
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" in October, 2005.
Golden color, white head. Fruity and a bit spicy scent and taste. Not as boring as other mainstream Dutch beers.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2006
Can: Looks nice enough for a lager. Golden in colour, lasting large white head and good lace. Aroma of stale malts. Flavour is quite innoffensive, almost a little lemon there. Edges on the sweeter side. Lawnmower beer.

Look at me i am rubbish! I thought i had rated this fellow, but passing through i seem to have not. Chemical aroma but i dont get too much corn. Taste is the opposite lots of corn and not much chemical. Mon the pale lager!

YES! World’s best lager beer... probably. Although it is considered being a standard beer, the taste is fantastic, specially when served draught.

guinness59 (2) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2005 does not count
This beer just goes to show what a name will bring a beer, if the name on the can had been Miller or AB, this beer wouldn’t rate higher than a 1. A pretty, light golden color, slight aroma, but hardly any flavor, with a metallic finish. Got a case as a gift from a trip to Curacao.

Marko (4542) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 15, 2005
Beer no. 18 of my Slovenian beerhunt.
I finally found this. This used to be available in Croatia for some time, but they stopped importing it before I got into rating beer. There are still Amstel signs, and listings in menus to show it, and I asked in vain every time if they had it. I finally found it in a Spar in Slovenia, after finding its n/a version the day before.

It poured a huge fluffy white head that went away at a medium pace. Darker yellow colour. Slightly acidic malt & dust nose. not that bad for a standard international lager. Taste was ok, metallic, fruity malt, lemon., dust, some unimpressive hops and hints of alcohol (!) showing sometimes. Bitter aftertaste that stayed for a while. Better than Heineken without a doubt.
