bytemesis (2572) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Can - thanks to DeEtta for this one (for putting up with Mike stuffing his suitcase with shitty local beers). Pours very light golden with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately with a bit of lacing. Aroma of grain, corn syrup. Flavor is light to medium sweet, light grassy bitter finish. Not bad for a pale lager.

Psytron (1152) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Smell of straw. Pale golden colour, high white head. Aroma of straw, grain, metal, rubber. Slightly bitter. Lively carbon. Rather gross.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
250mL clear bottle ubiquitous in Aruba. What the f*** is up with these ridiculous beer bottle sizes. R u serious? Clear straw pour. No head formation. Pineapple, paper, lemon nose. Taste is inoffensive, pineapple, yellow apple. Seltzer palate. Like Amstel Bright. Not much there to hate on.

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Refrigerated 0.22 cl clear bottle. Clear pale golden, light body, low carbonation, white head. Taste is clean light malt. Refreshing and better than most light beers in my book. Surprising not skunky.

60minuteman (597) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Much better than the namesake brew. Aroma lacks more than just pale malt and citrus. Taste is refreshing, excellent for a sunny cloudless day on a pier in the Caribbean

VALIS (210) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Borderline undrinkable. Vaguely Corona-like, with the added tastes of rusty metal and corn syrup! Mmm!

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Pale golden colour, no head. Malty aroma, adjunct. Sweet flavour, adjunct, light malts. Hints of nail polish remover.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle courtesy of tderoeck, thanks! Clear pale yellow color, no head. Aroma of celery salt. Taste is dilute acetone.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Clear yellow golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, grains, grass. Faint, flat, uninteresting. Low body and carbonation.

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Light gold with small white head. Aroma of sweet corny malt and some sourness. Taste - much like the smell, corn flakes, grassy malt, a touch of caramel and some funk. Poor.
