MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, 5.2%. Weak grainy aroma. Clear yellow colour. Small chalk white head. The flavour is grainy with some paper. The graininess gets unpleasant rather quickly.

grass, skunky, mingy aroma pale, clear, minimal head, cat piss type appearance and to be honest it doesn’t have a taste light body, oily feel, flat, the only thing good about this is its wet and could prevent death on the hottest day if stranded in a hot place with no water

Grumbo (596) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Drunk bottled in Tobago, also locally brewed versions in Grenada and St. Kitts. No destinction between them. Pour a clear pale gold colour with an average white head. Aroma is grainy with notes of grass. Light bodied with a typical lager carbonation. It is what it is and does the job in Caribbean sunshine.

holy shit this is skunk. clear golden hue shines through the clear bottle. skunked nose. taste follows the skunk theme, moderate grain sweetness. light body but the skunk lingers. Trinidad and Tobago fuck your life forever.

Presentation: It was poured from a clear 11.16oz or 330ml bottle into a dimpled mug. The label lists the abv at 5.2%. Appearance: The body is a very light straw yellow color with very good clarity. From an aggressive pour down the center of the glass I got a tall fizzy white head. This light fizzy head fizzled out quickly leaving only a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Smell: As soon as I opened this beer it hit me right away with bright floral and grassy hops that also bring a hit of skunk as well. Taste / Palate: There is not much going on here, as is normal for the style. Its a basic light bodied Lager with light rice cereal like malts and floral/grassy/greenhouse like hops. The palate is light, crisp and it finishes surprising clean.

Light gold color. Thin head. Refreshing with a lemon wedge. Not as bad as i was expecting it to be. Decent lager.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2048) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from Granada courtesy of my buddy. 275ml bottle, light straw gold with a foamy white head. Rough grainy sweet light malt aroma a touch sugary. A rough medium body-mouthfeel.  Overall middle of the road but not too bad, rough but drinkable.

Another beer brought back from my brother. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a glossed over yellow color with a slight transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising. There was a quickly dissipating bubbly white head and barely any lacing. The aroma smelled almost exactly like the stag lager I had: light cereal/graininess with a light lemon. The taste was mainly sweet with a fairly clean crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat exceptionally light and poundable. Overall, beach beer, I wouldn’t have this where I currently live but if I ever found my way down there, I could see myself drinking this over that stag lager despite it smelling the same.
