reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
bottled as Bushman’s Premium Lager, poured light amber in glass with white head that quickly dissipated, a little bit too malty with not enough hop, decent body for a lager.

Spanner (60) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2004
An unchallenging, easy-going German-style lager that's more for scoffing than quiet pleasure. Dissapointing. Spanner.

This beer is the closest thing to something brewed in the maritimes that comes from the other side of the world. It is light in color, weak and somewhat skunky in aroma. It tastes great, but only if you grew up on Moosehad. It has no complexity and doesn’t have a full enough mouth-feel.

ARMed (598) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2005
This was not a beer that you will remember a week from when you consumed it, but it would fit the bill as a drinkable self-satisfying malt beverage when you really need one. Certainly nothing significant with this beer. Clear and crisp if served extremely cold, which is the only eay I would drink it. Palate was limited at best. slightly cloudy with a poor head and no body.

Earplay (16) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2014
Actually a pleasant sweet malt aroma of this ’budget’ beer. Light clean taste, relatively inoffensive bitterness, little hop presence. Light mouth-feel and poor head retention. An easy drinker.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle, from High Spirits in Cleethorpes. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Gently grassy in the nose with some tinny hop notes, soft, sweet and chalky in the mouth with a slight maltiness, gentle dry finish with a touch of hop flowers.
