Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
330 mL Bottle with an East-Indian motif embossed on its sides. Clear yellow body with a foamy white head that settles to a wispy ring leaving fine lace on the sides of the glass. Aroma is grains with notes of floral, citrus, grassy hops, and a bit boozy. Flavor: a light corn-malt combo, thin-bodied, butter biscuit and a bit of nutty-bitter hops express in the aftertaste followed by a clean finish like a "dry" beer. A summer-time beer.

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
bottle: Hard to get a real taste for this after Green King IPA but here it goes . . . file this under the British making Indian pale lagers. LIke Kalyani & Taj Mahal, I always detect a litte sweetness at the bottom which makes it slightly stand out from other lagers. You can do way worse with pale lagers, this isn’t that bad at all.

Just another macro swill. Is a bit sweet and malty with a hint of hops. No interesting character, not worth trying again.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
330ml Bottle: I keep buying beer but I don’t drink it, which basically means I’ve got a cellar full of swill I need to start disposing of. It starts here. Pours light golden yellow with a surprisingly nice foamy white head. Heavy boozy corn aroma, like an average Labatt product, slightly sweet and malty. Flavour is just.. blah. Alcohol, candy, corn (not to be confused with candy corn.. well, actually, maybe that’s close..), metal, fairly heavy hopping providing bitterness with no character whatsoever. Welcome to macro lagerland.. population, this guy. *shrug*

What a real disappointment. This lager just gets worse the more it is drunk. Nobody surely actually drinks this beer for the flavour or do they? Can’t quite believe how much i’ve also been charged for this in the past. I see absolutely no reason to drink a bottle of Cobra - even in a restaurant. I had four 330ml bottles in one go so I think i’m being fair!

tlind2 (1604) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2009
330 ml bottle. Pale golden color, white head. Floral aroma, some metallic notes. Weak. somewhat malty flavor. Light body, medium carbonation. Disappointing.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2009
2009-03-28. Pale yellow body with a small foamy white head. (2+) Mild grainy aroma is muddled. Flavour has just enough hops to give a grassy grainy note to the muted sweet malt base. Average to thin palate. Poor. Bottle from the LCBO.

Strangebrewer (1180) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009
bottle. Poured Clear, light pale yellow with thin white head. Sweet and sour wheat grain aroma. Lot’s of carbonation. Light mouthfeel, sweet malt with light bitter hop finish. Not bad but I can’t see that it’s the world’s most celebrated lager as it claims.
