DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, - SEP 6, 2010
Bottles in Palaiokastritsa, Corfu. Congealed candlewax, raffia, almond, glue and lemon hints aroma (probably mozzie repellant)- pretty unappetising.. Couldnt drink this the other night; tonight I’m struggling- bilious regurgitated sweetcorn, licked stamp and gluey, brackish rancid fat/almond flavour. Pale gold with a wisp of halo. Flat, fatty, lacking fizz or corn sweetness, even.. I’ve had better bottles, but this is a rancid, sub-Albanian mess.

Clear light yellow body with lots of bubbles and a quick bubbly white head. Grainy aromas. Taste is similar with a little sweet.

tandembrauer (434) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 23, 2015
Bottle, bought in Kalavrita. Pours clear, golden, with little white head, quickly disappearing, looks like apple juice shortly after pouring. Aroma of some hay, some DMS. Thin bodied, sweet, little bitterness.

reebtogi (4568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains. Taste is a light grainy malt sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. Nothing special.

TedE (355) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Bready peppery nose. Pale amber beer with solid two finger white head which dissipates. A few bubbles. Sweet taste, sweet finish. Slight vegetal aftertaste, no discernible bitterness. Ordinary, very ordinary.

Swaroga (1634) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Aroma has some grains in it apart being overwhelmingly uninteresting. A bit dough to. The rest is water, a hint of diacetyl and DMS. Plus some little caramel. Drain pour.

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
330 ml can from Keir - thanks again, Keir! Pours a clear pale gold with a finger of white head that leaves behind some film, bubbles, and a ring. Notes of straw, cracker, bread, grass, and cereal. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, grainy mouthfeel. Malty, grainy, and grassy. Not bad.

Clear, light golden. Small white head. Light, sweetish and grainy aroma. Similar flavour. Dry, sweetish finish.

Bamsen78 (3949) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of hops and sourish hints. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of yeast and less-than-average malt. Estery aftertaste. Surprisingly good for a Pale Lager 9 months past the BBD, but nothing special as such.

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, 5%. Clear golden colour. Small frothy chalk white head. The flavour has hay and grass. All very subtle. Clean enough, but not very interesting.

GarageBrewer80 (126) - SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2015
Flaska från Hellas Örebro. Ljus klar halmgul färg med luftig vit skumkrona. Söt doft av ljust bröd. Vattnig kropp. Frisk, bubblig och brödig smak.
