Poured from a 14.9 oz. can. Has a rich golden color. Smell is of malts, a touch of corn. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, some grains. Overall a refreshing lager.

Bottled 04/09/13. A blonde beer with no head. Sweet and fruity with a bit of toffee. A decent body and even a touch of tropical fruit. Hints of vomit as lagers can have. Not as bad as I feared.

danlo (1840) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold colour, foam white head and aroma is sweet fruity with some spice. Taste is sweet malt & grain, grassy and a light bitterness. Creamy mouth feel, light bodied, medium carbonation, finish is dry with some residual sweetness. OK.

Mora2000 (6100) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of very sweet malt with a circus peanut character. The flavor is less sweet, but I still get a lot of grain and sugar notes, as well as some grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Serving: Note quite 16 oz. can. Odd serving size it seems. It pours a clear gold color with a decent white head. Fairly normal looking. The nose is on the sweet side with a touch of butterscotch. The flavor is unsurprisingly sweet as well. A little caramel, corn, and grain notes. It almost reminds me of a cream ale in texture and flavor. Not much in the way of bitterness. I suppose I’ve had worse. Take it or leave it.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Golden in color with a tick latherous head that lingers thick and creamy. Strong aromas of rich malt. Full nectar with soft effers. Rich malt flavor with a perky bitterness on the rear. Tastes fresh.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
5/6/13. 16oz can from Beaches in Destin. Clear golden pour with a small off-white head that’s gone immediately. Butter, apples, and salty ketchup all over this bad boy with sprinkles of black tea. Ugh. This is awful.

DiarmaidBHK (3850) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Can from total wine McLean. I’ll resist the easy if this is Cains Finest lager then they need to fuck off to say instead it could be a lot worse. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a bit of fruitiness on the nose that carries on to the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid.

thirdeye11 (5860) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
(440ml dated 8-23-12 thanks to bu11zeye) clear gold with soda like white lasting bubbles. Nose of light grain, raisin. Tastes like a lager, light grain, bit earthy, cream, a good lager (but I don’t really care for them) with light hops on the finish.

Cheap and cheerful. Neither good nor bad pint, a little unremarkable really. Slightly sweet flavour.

obguthr (4902) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Rich honey and toffee nose. Hazy amber, fine floaties, medium head with poor retention. Toffee on the front, more of a sweet grassy hay on the back. Obvious quality British malts. I found this bottle in my car. How it got there is a bit of a mystery to me. It must have been there for months. I expected this to be awful, but I thoroughly enjoed it. Excellent!
