berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2009
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Straw with a thin white head; aroam is sweet and rather unpleasant with touches of grain and rice; thin and watery with a sweet taste with some rice and damp cardboard to finish. Not bad, but I don’t think I’ll be seeking this out again.

Hansen (8410) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
A thin pale lager. Light yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Light malty, sweet aroma, a bit unpleasent. Light sweet flavor. Watery texture. Lively carbonation.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Courtesy Redlight. Clear light yellow-orange color with a thin loose-bubbled white head. Light grainy aroma, slight grassiness, not really much there. Taste is light, some grassy hops, kind of thin, but not bad.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle, courtesy Redlight. Pours a clear, light golden color with a minimal, fizzy white head. Just a few dots of lacing mark the glass. The nose is fairly decent for a pale lager, notes of bread grains showing clean, with a hint of honey and perhaps some fresh corn. Floral hop notes are not prominent, but add a somewhat perfumy scent. The flavor shows more of the same, fresh grain, bready yeast, corn, and hints of floral, somewhat grassy hops making for an even keeled, balanced taste. The body is light, but there’s no annoying fizziness, and, in fact, there’s a hint of creaminess to the palate. Drinkable and inoffensive, which is more than you can say about most pale lagers.

I’m kinda fond of this beer, with malt are thick with some strong grassy herbal hops. a touch of rice but in a good way. lots of body. not bad, would go good with oriental food.

mkel07 (5153) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2009
330ml bottle.Poured a clear straw colour witha large frothy white head, looks likje the kitchen sink when you add too much dish liquid. Head quickly settles to a layer of dirty white foam. Heavy aroma of malt and barley with a mildly bitter, clean taste and good texture with a dry finish. Not bad for a beer producing minnow.

The aroma is a little strange but not offensive. It is basically sweet malt with a touch of grassy hops. It has something else I just can’t identify. The appearance is pale gold with an average head for the style. The flavor is malty with a bit of bitter hops and a twang. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall it’s not that bad.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Bottle at Peculier Pub with Pwn3d. This lager was actually good. I would have this again if the other options were slim. Aroma is a little weird spice, but the flavor is not offensive - which is half the battle with pale lagers.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Sampled at Peculier Pub w/ Jredmond on May 7th, ’09. Had this right after Hite, which is my favorite Asian lager. This reminded me of 33. Some spiciness, overall nothing offensive and drinkable. Had a lighly funky nose. Surprisingly good lager. Cool label. I would drink this again.

This stuff is essentially water. Light golden in color, not much malt or hops. Nothing special here.
