Bottle. Moderately sweet malty aroma. Light golden body, small white head. Bready, grainy, somewhat dusty flavor. Lengthy mildly bitter finish. Not bad.

Thanks Daknole. Clear gold colored beer with only a smidge of visible carbonation. Small white head that quickly fades to a tiny ring and a micro thin layer. Aroma is corn adjuncts and a faint hoppiness. Flavor offers a bit of caramel, grain, honey and biscuit. Would be great on a sailboat off the Barbados coast.

Bottle shared by lithy. Poured golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of butter and corn with a faint mustard seed spice. The flavor is straight up corn lager with a light malt backing. Light body.

Pours clear gold with minute long bright white head. The aroma is corn flakes and noble hops with a mild background of graininess. The taste hits first with a bowl full of corn flakes and mild malt graininess. Nearing midway a moment or two of floral and faint lemon like hops surface before the sweet malts and corn flakes return and take it to the finish.

Bottle. Wet creamy corn and honey nose. Smooth and almost creamy flavor, slightly lactic yogurt sourness, low effervescence. Metallic and twnngy at times. Seems like it might be a bit old. All around unoffensive, smooth and mellow.

A bitter macro tasting beer. Really watered down and very smooth. Lawn-mowing beer for sure.

Bottled, pasteurised, 275ml, cheers Paul. Pale yellow with CO2 head. Took this as an opportunity to compare it against the Hepworths version. Quite a grainy, sweet lager malt beer, the good old buttery vanilla note with a very low hop impact. Clear and sparkling, but not too much to shout about.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2008 Solid, malty Europils aroma. Cool painted label, brown bottle, clear yellow brew, finely beaded white head. Flavor is exactly what the aroma suggests - malty, clean lager without much pretense. No adjuncts detectable. Finishes out with a grass-malt sweetness. Solid, for its class. I could ingest one or two on a cruise ship or a nice beach in hurricane territory.

Clear piss yellow from lithy. Sweet light diacytal aroma. Vanilla grain flavor. Not bad. I’d drink this again.
