flying_pig (942) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle (500ml): It smells like a pale lager but without any of the positive aromas that come with the style. A bad combination of grain & bread here that makes me wish I had avoided this particular beer. Terrible looking in almost every respect. Light amber coloured & clear with tonnes of large bubbles rising to the surface in what can only be decribed as an aggressive fashion. It forms a thumb sized, bubbly white head that disappears almost instantly & leaves a fine film around the brim of the glass. Truely shocking looking, I can’t think of a worse looking beer. I wouldn’t have though it possible but it actually tastes worse than it smells with the taste consisting of nothing but grain & corn. This is finished with a musty, off tasting flavour that lingers for far too long despite the beer still being well in date. Rough on the palate & kind of musty. Despite the huge amount of bubbles rising to the surface the beer was still incredibly flat & generally terrible with regards to mouthfeel. Truely one of the worst beers I have ever tasted, the only good thing about it was that I wasn’t physically sick after taking a sip & it didn’t seem to hurt my stomach as I drank it (or the three mouthfulls I took anyway). Avoid this one at all costs, it is shockingly terrible. More at: www.abarwithnoname.wordpress.com

Very good lagernice crisp dry taste, nice aftertaste and well balanced with the hops, a lot better than the commercial lagers

RichardW (1515) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle, B&M Carlisle. A good, soft and faintly flowery lager. Very pleasant sweet fruit aroma, lingering blackberry aftertaste and good carbonation. Impressive.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2009
500ml bottle from Cains Brewery Tap, shared together with CinnamonGirl and Magne at our hotel room. Golden body, fading white foam. Oil-hoppy aroma. Smooth flavour of noble hops mixed with grainy malts and a brief bitter support to the ending. Clean mouthfeel. Lively carbonated. Decent lager (Liverpool, 04.05.2009).

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle from morrisons, as 2008 lager. Alround rating: Sweet pale malts, slightly grainy and caramel, peppery herbal hop, still on the sweet side of balanced.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Warrington. Deep gold in colour with a tight white head and slight carbonation. Sweetish malt aroma, with a suggestion of peppery hop. Flavour had more of the same sweet malts, with a touch of fruitiness, some tired hops and a short, bitter finish. Lacking in character.
