Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy to yespr, thanks buddy]Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Clear flat looking body with a yellow hay like color. Spare lacework. Cardboard, grain, caramel, straw and hint of grass. Light bodied with a soft carbonation and hint of dry texture. Light bitter and sweet flavor. Light dry and bitter finish.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. (thx yespr, for sharing) Clear, yellow-golden body with a white head. Grainy and slightly fruity aroma and flavor, with a wee hoppy note in the aroma. Thin body. Not much of a finish. An utterly boring beer, but there’s nothing wrong with it. Quite quaffable. (071005)

mmmbeer (1328) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2007
From 11.2 oz bottle- poured standard transparent golden-yellow, fizzy head that disappears after a few minutes, aroma nonexistant. Hits the mouth with a pale thin body, hops ever so slightly noticeable on the finish. Better than most US macrobrews, but still not something to kill for.

Palidor19 (3075) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
tastes like a substandard attempt at a plae lager, with corn adjuncts and low malts. The rest is mild slickly sweet.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
The aroma is corn malt and strange hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s about what you would expect.

berkshirejohn (5161) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2007
33cl bottle. Gold with a qucik flash of white head; aroma of grape concentrate; cereal taste, bland and dry; unpleasant chemical aftertaste.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear, pale golden with a white head. Vague aroma of brewing cereal. Medium body, sweet notes of corn starch. No bitternes though. Your typical Pale Lager. 051007

yespr (35101) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow with no head. Aroma is cornish, clean. Flavour is sweet malty to cornish with bit of bitterness in the finish. In broad terms it is really indifferent from the Macedonia or the Tanzania beer: world wide pale lager brew.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle, a clear pale gold with a foamy white head. A pungent grassy aroma with just a touc of citrus. Very carbonated in the mouth, with a malty flavour and an earthy bitter finish.

A Mes rate: Bottle from Floridita for PV’s leaving do. Bless PV for picking a place for her leaving drinks that had two beers I had not rated. Shame that neither of them were any good. Cardboard and corn, you know the score. Very bad.
