unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2012
.Sweet grassy hay and faint herbal hop aroma. Malt-driven sweetness and moderate fullness of body, with a nibble of pilsy bitterness to finish. Tasty lager, dull beer.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Tasted during a German and lager evening (Aug 2011), did OK against some well known Pilsners and Exports. Brown 500ml bottle, best before May 2012. Typical lager/pilsner/export golden body, clear and clean looking. Fairly sweet in the nose and taste, not unpleasant, but certainly not as dry tasting as the German Exports also being reviewed at the time. Mid-strength in body depth and flavour, an OK brew and just above average for it’s style

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2012
sampled at azwine 11/10/11.can. golden yellow with a bubbly white head. peachy aroma... dried apricots, peppery spice, vanilla and papery hops as well. the flavor is the same as the aroma only with an added metallic thing and a bunch of peppery spiciness on the finish. it is crisp, dry and fruity with lots of body for 5%. quite nice. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

mansquito (3105) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Total Wine & More, Chantilly 14.9 oz can ($1.50): Pours a dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is typical lager smell, grass and a bit of hops. Taste is predictable and bland. It is easy drinking enough and a few steps above your run-of-the-mill pale lager, but not by enough. A disappointment.

(440ml can, Mora2000) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of cereal, grass, and biscuit. Flavor of grain, grass, and light skunkiness.

yellow pour with a whiote head. Aroma is sweet and cereal grains. Taste is the same with a little spicy hops at the end. A little creamy, crisp aftertaste. ok beer.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2012
16 ounce can from Total Wine West Richmond. Pours a clear pale straw color with a frothy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of green apple jolly ranchers and some grainy malts. Seriously if I didn’t know better I’d think this were cheap cider. The taste is grainy and slightly toasted malts, and apples. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Weird one.
