iammadeofjelly (192) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Thin, sweet, lightly carbonated. Nice colour. Smells like an empty sweetcorn tin. Very Very bland, but ok to drink Ice cold in a big 20-pack. Quaffable swill I think is the right expression, cheap too. Virtually no hop flavour at all, like corona, miller, sweet golden lagers in clear bottles, meant to be drunk from the bottle. Lager for people who don’t like lager, or for people like me who can drink a hell of a lot in one sitting and need a constant supply of faintly beery tasting liquid.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
300ml clear glass bottle. Yellowish appearance. Warm, damp straw aroma. Soapy, lemony flavour. Little hop bitterness or aroma - saccharine bitterness. Soft, almost creamy/soapy carbonation, but still unsettles the stomach and creates wind. Grainy, cereal notes. There’s little to commend this. But it is drinkable.

sm89walt (1758) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2012
300ml bottle. A clear, pale gold colour with a fine ring of loose white foam on the pour. An all-round grain, corn and sweet pale malt profile. Very little bitter presence finishing soft & sweet. Crisp, soft to medium carbonation, light in body & refreshing on the palate but relatively characterless.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a small, white foam head. Some lightly sugary pale malts in the nose, subtle dough, straw. Light sweet flavor, mellow straw bitterness, a bit more light dough malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, clean finish with a very restrained character overall, just nips of dry straw and faint, white sugar and dough. Quite a nice little pale lager, this. Exactly what I want after a strenuous gym session.

(Bottled) This shit is ok "ice cold swill ".... sometimes I wanna drop the pretense ,note pad and goblet and slum it . Corona is my swill of choice but the fact that this isn’t as sweet as normal Fosters ,with a long bitter dryness , makes this ok ....like once a month only.....

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Third and final beer in my 28th September 2012 ’Dodgy Lager tasting evening’. 300ml Clear bottle: best before the end of Mar 2013. Dry, bitter, metallic, boring and lager looking: no smell. The worst of the pilsner/lagers I had during the tasting; I must thank my daughter for finding such delights for me (this and one each from the cheap German based supermarkets Aldi and Lidl). She tries to find beers I’ve never reviewed before, but sometimes she does things like this, just to test my love!

Looks nice and golden, very thin white head clean sharp smell. Very golden and.inviting. Dull taste, liquorice tones.

emartell (245) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2012
Aroma casi nulo con ligeros toques florales. En cuanto a la apariencia, color amarillo pálido, corona de espuma ligera pero de larga retención, carbonatación alta. En cuanto a boca, las primeras notas identificadas son ligeramente amargas y refrescantes. Al paladar lo refrescante se hace notar. Al principio destacan ligeros sabores amargos, mismos que posteriomente dejan sabores dulces al paso por la garganta. El final es ligero y frutal. En general una cerveza refrescante y diferente, aun que para nada de las mejores Pale lager que existen.

leaparsons (8102) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pale gold with a thin foam. Aromas are caramel and butter with mellow lemon. Some cardboard with soda water. Flavours are light lemon with butter and cereal grain. As expected.
