GoufCustom (607) - HONG KONG - JAN 13, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Aeon in KCP, Kowloon City.

Golden yellow color; Near zero head and residual white foam which last for about 10 seconds; No lacing with slight carbonation; Slightly pungent smell of malt, with slight grains, bread, lemon and light grass; Near zero sweet taste of malt, with light grains, strong bread and dough, very light lemon and faint grass; Close to light body. Thin, very dry and crisp palate; Mouth feel is surprisingly un- macro, with strong malt, no sweetness, low grains, very dry akin to Asahi Super Dry – perhaps more so - and very bready and doughy. How about that! Hoppiness is very light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Some shades of bitterness but because that’s no sweetness so that’s okay. Just dry bready finish; Very dry after taste. Easy, fulfilling and crisp to mouth.

Comments: Talk about shocker and this is one of those. It has all the niceties of an ideal Pale Lager - lean, dry, clean, bready, nice to mouth, no bad after taste - it has all and then some! So dry it’ll make Asahi Super Dry nervous, so doughty it’ll put many macro Premium Lagers to shame. Very enjoyable and highly recommended!

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle at Barrafina. Not half bad by any stretch. Actually quite clean and slightly refreshing. I could have it again which is more than I can say for the Alhambra they had

adamnase (120) - Kronoby, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light, clear amber body with thin white head. Aroma is clean malt and a nice sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and smooth with notes of clean malt, sweet fruit, vague hop character and light grain.

ThirstyBird (1181) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Pours a clear orange color with a small ring of head. The smell is grainy and slightly sweet. The taste is Light sweet malt and a decent dry counterbalance. Light in body and delicate carbonation. A bit better than I would have thought....drinkable.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
33cl. Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing. malty Nose, The beer starts malty, a bit sweet, quite intense. The mainpart has a quite hop-bitter character, lots of malt, a bit too sweet probably. The aftertaste is long, malty, smooth, bitter. --> Nice and much better than expected! --> 10/12/9/9

Amargor pouco marcante e pouca presença de lúpulo. Sabor de Lager simples. Nada demais, boa pra beber no calor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westkyoto77 (439) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. This had a very unique flavour, but I can understand the poor ratings- not everyone's cup of tea. Kinda syrupy but with quite high carbonation. Touch of spice, sticky hops. Better than Damm, that's for sure.
