vyvvy (5885) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Pours urine test yellow with a large white fluffy head. The aroma is lightly grainy malt with traces of corn. The body is slightly above light with fizzy carbonation. The taste is simple and light, creamy smooth malt with a light sweet fake fruit taste. The finish has a light touch of spicy hops. It wasnít horrible at this point, but once it started warming up a bit it started tasting more and more like sweet corn. I could take no more and had to pour it.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2006
500ml can, 5% a/v Pours a light gold colour, with a soft white head. The nose consisting of very little. Perhaps grass and grain? The taste is refreshing. A poor mans heinekan as been said. Pretty lowbrow pils, but a good beer nonetheless.

ALLOVATE (2911) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 One of the last dregs of the íLiquorlandí lot. Amazed I hadnít tasted it yet, thought I was through with novelty pilsners. Poured a sparkling, yellowy gold with fine carbonation capped off with a loose, rocky white crown that managed to stick around for the length leaving minimal legs. Dry, fresh mowed grass and dusty malt aroma, quite clean but lacking somewhat. Thin, watery, soft palate. Light blend of barnyard grain, souring malt and stale hops. Gently bitter on the finish with a soapy, short swallow. Nothing too offensive, quite straightforward, bland and brain-dead quaffing. So-so. (33cL, BBE 05/07, Liquorland throughout Oz)
re-rate - Bloody spelling mistakes, bloody iespell not working...

Tastes just like Heineken. Maybe a little lighter and milder flavor but very similar.

Aug, 2007 Can. Tesco Premium lager. Inoffensive. Soft hops initially barely distinguished from the acidity of the carbonation. Drinkable, but lack of body and taste makes this a very boring drink indeed. [1.7]
Feb, 2014 250ml green bottle from Scotts Supermarket, Malta. Bavaria Premium Beer. This is a very popular brand in Malta - itís sold and promoted everywhere. A little watery with few hops. Just because a brewery claims its products are premium, doesnít necessarily make them so. Standard inoffensive pale lager for those who are not looking for distractions such as flavour. [2.3]

Cans picked up at Morrissons, Aylesbury 8th August 2006, and drank this in a field at Cropredy, Fairport Conventions Cropredy Festival Friday 11th August. Pours light golden, very fizzy, but very very unexciting, refreshing is probably a plus point I could put itís way. I have had a lot better but to be fair I have had an awful lot worse.

GregClow (3212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2006
Can from the LCBO. Clear light gold with a small qhite head that recedes quickly. Aroma of grainy malt with some decent honey and herb notes. Light, crisp body. Sweet honeyish malt off the top of the flavour, leading into an interesting lemony middle, and a mild, herbal finish. I got none of the corn notes that a lot of raters seem to have gotten - itís an unexciting beer to be sure, but a fairly clean and adjunct-free one to my nose & palate.

pootzboy (1691) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2006
Can from the LCBO: Poured a deep gold clear lager with a rocky 2 finger cap with fair retention and lacing... Aroma is fairly well pronounced grainy/bready malts with light floral hopping somewhat like clover ( no dutch skunk here like Heineken)... ..fair malt spine. soft mineral mouth feel, smooth rounded malty character.... Fairly 2 dimensional Dutch lager with a good dose of carapils malts up front then a light herbal-lemony effect from attenuated nobel hopping, clean finish, slight drying from a light use of wheat... biscuit after taste ....like a malty, soft pilsner....this is what Grolsch would taste like if they pumped up their malts and were medium bodied. A decent Euro all malt golden lager from a lagge dutch brewer who do their own malting....clean malty taste, minimal sweetnes, subdued lemmony hopping, soft mouth feel...no surprizes or over complexity....very drinkable....Iíll buy more if there is no JR Brickman around.

Nose is corn and other adjuncts, light amber, finger of white foam, bit of lace. Taste is corn, malt, some hops. Grainy, bitter. Poor.
