Leighton (18030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. Many thanks to Mr. MacBoost for providing this one. Pours totally clear, pale yellow with a foamy, white head. The nose holds cereal and general pale grains. Medium sweet flavour with creamy grains, cereal, corn. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish with more sweet cereal. Pretty OK stuff, really. A rather ílightí malt liquor.

Cotteridge Convention II. Bottle traded with Macboost, cheers Shawn. Gold beer. Aroma of stale malts. Taste is white bread and pale malts. Shit.

Brewhemia (162) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2016
Very pale clear yellow with very little white head. Very little aroma. Some smell of sugary sweetness and corn though. Very little taste as well and very little body. Almost no malt flavor and very little bitterness. Seems it might be made from non barley malt fermentables exclusively. Maybe the worst beer I've had.

Milestone beer. Rating #1700. Insignificant beer for an insignificant rating. I feel so insignificant. Remember the movie Antz? I do. Anyway, this bottle was gifted to me by Tcon, though he will deny it. He has denied it. This was purchased on my 26th birthday at the Foo Fighters concert at the gorge, and much to my disapproval, this was the sole survivor of the pack. All the others were drank. Amazing. In a way I guess. If I were to factor the concert into this rating, the story may be much different. Foo Fighters kick ass. This beer does not. Itís no Foo Fighters that for sure. If beer was rock music, this beer would be.. I donít know, some youtuber trying to do a bad cover of Pink Floyd or something. Malt liquor? Oh yeah, I forgot my previous rant that all beer is "technically" malt liquor. Apple juice color pour. Smooth.. yes. Water can be smooth too. It all depends on how thirsty you are. Same goes for the beer. Honestly I donít have any deScriptors for this beer other than that it just tastes weird. To me, itís what a beer flavored Crystal Light would taste like. Are you listening Crystal Light? Sorry, Crystal Light Platinum.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2015
12 oz bottle. 15233. From a grocery store in Honolulu, HI.
Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet and earthy malt in the aroma. The flavor is cardboard, sweetness, earthy malt and some mild bitterness. Bad and useless.

stevoj (3771) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Can from Albertsons. Drinking this for an Untappd badge, period. Not expecting much. Normal pale lager look and feel, nose a bit maltier than the norm. Taste is sweet grain and adjuncts, not bad, mouth feel is fairly slick. Very drinkable, not much in flavor, but overall decent.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 Light golden color with floral notes, crisp. Not bad, better than expected.

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Light gold with high carbonation. Nose is more corn malt than the original. No detection of hops. Somewhat watery but a step up from regular Bud Light. Courtesy of my brother in law.
