imdownthepub (11146) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - FEB 28, 2004
Tinned, Pasteurised. Pale yellow frothy water. This is a thin cheap poor beer with little to recomend it by. Tinny, copper flavoured, depressingly awful.

The_Osprey (2845) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - 330ml bottle from the Savanna shop, 5.0%, BB Sep 2015, brewed in RSA. The world’s best bottled lager in 2000 apparently. I just bought this out of interest because they sponsor the Springboks. Pale orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma is a little meaty, musty, doughy, touch of sick maybe. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste is tangy, quite dry, not overly sweet (as advertised), a little bitter. Musty, papery, maybe a touch of rosemary. Not bad if you prefer a dry lager over a sweet one. Fine, drinkable.

Pyrmir (3901) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2015
Canned during Malawi vacation. This was one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. Aroma and taste had powerful notes of boiled vegetables, rotting notes mixed with pale malt.

blackisle (1049) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Clear medium golden, big frothy white head, good retention and lacing; sweet malty nose, corn, grass; taste medium sweet, light bitter, bit soapy; light to medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, aftertaste light bittersweet, cardboard, bit artificial; all in all disappointing.

Burk från kollega. Drucken ur burken... Söt lager med metallburkskänsla... Sötare än väntat annars helt enligt plan...

MSBrindbergs (522) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Drucken ur burk från MrHult. Luktar metall och malt. Smakar metall och malt. Blaskigt men maltigt. Vad ska man säga... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rulymel (200) - SPAIN - FEB 2, 2015
A present from a friends they visited South Africa. Beer is the same lager as everywhere. Nothing to say. You have tasted hundreds like it.

SarkyNorthener (2766) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Dudley. Golden amber beer with residual head. Aroma of cereal grain and pale malts. Taste is pretty much the same with some corn and hops. Drinkable with some taste at least.

exeter (442) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
taste of creamed corn and bread and a metallic after taste that I just can’t shake. I could have it again if I was ok with a macro.

AdiBeer (1860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma: grain malts, some nasty other flavour. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, lively carbonation, light body. Overall: boring Pale Lager. Bottle from Witch Weine, Olten.
