gunnar (5468) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle in Lisboa. Pours clear golden with a good sized white head. Aroma is malty, some cooked vegetables. Taste is moderate sweet bready malts, some crisp and moderate fresh hops in the end, best so far in Portugal. The Ronaldo of Portugesian beer!

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2011
330ml bottle, consumed on 29 November 2010. Mid gold colour. A little sweetness. A little boiled cabbage in the flavour. Surprisingly firm mouthfeel. Drinkable enough and relatively inoffensive.

fonefan (35220) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2010

Bottle 330ml.

Clear light medium yellow color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, grain, toasted, light vegetable. Flavor is light moderate sweet with a average duration, vegetable notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101129]

Nickls (1872) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Tap. Light in absolutely all ways, barely perceptable yellow color even, and a very pale lager indeed. Touch of cereal in the aroma, with no real bitterness to speak about. Light grain and veg, and beyond thin. Close to water in the feel. Just not good.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2010
[330 ml bottle, Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn] First impressions are good – golden pale colour, long-lasting deep head and a little carbonation. That’s where it peaks though, as the nose is straw, corn and nothing but. The taste is thin and watery with more straw and very little hops, just a faint grassy whisper. A glance at the ingredients reveals… Malt, Grain, Hops, Antioxidant (E300), Stabiliser (E405). Oh dear. Basic to say the least, it’s another to file under the ‘like Miller Genuine Draft only weaker’ category and to leave well alone. [06092009]

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2010
A clear yellow colored beer with a with head. The aroma of malts with sweet fruits. The taste is sweet with a little bitter and malty. The aftertaste is sweet with notes of bitter.

PlainsDrifter (75) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours clear, light golden color with a medium white head. Light grassy and bread aroma. Medium to high carbonation, fairly clean finish with some lingering bitterness. This beer was o.k.

nimbleprop (4987) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12oz bottle I picked up in Madeira. Standard Pale Lager. Pours a totally transparent yellow, gold with very little fizzy, white head. Noticeably heavy carbonation. Nose is stale malts, grassy, lightly sweet. Flavor is stale bread and grass. Finish is dry. Worse than a beach beer.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
Dogbrick (8259) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash II tasting on 12/12/09: This beer is a clear pale yellow color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Light body with a bready malt and mild hops flavors. The finish is short and malty with a bit of fruit left over. Straightforward and forgettable Pale Lager overall.
