jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Super light clear golden coloured body with hardly any head at all. Aroma of citrus, light malt, a touch of very very small hops, a little sweetness and not much of anything else. Light-bodied; Sweet and floral taste at first with some apples and pear flavours coming soon afterward - relatively sweet and mild. Aftertaste shows some funkier malt with a little deep pungent flavour and some metallic notes. Overall, a pretty standard pils, perhaps on the bottom half of the chart - not great. I sampled this 33 cL can purchased at the Skukuza Rest Camp in Kruger National Park, near Nelspruit, South Africa on 21-August-2011 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the planet on 23-December-2011 a few days before leaving to go back to South Africa on holiday.

ALLOVATE (2873) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2011
Medium gold, dull and seminally hazy (chill haze?). Lots of eddying streams of carbonation, adorned by a snow-white, resilient and tight head of foam. Dusty, herbal Saaz nose, lightly spiced, peppery and zesty, very clean. Very light, delicate and obscenely crisp on the swallow. Assertively bitter, herbal and grassy back end, a lot of pepper and palest, dry malt fill out the rest. This is as clean as a whistle. Nothing to whinge about per se. A very easy drinking colonial pilsener. (34cL, no date stamp, Thirsty Camel, Butler)

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle. A clear light yellow colour with a smallbubbly white head. An aroma of malt, hay, grass and light hops. The taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Light body and carbonation

Very bland and watery Pils that only has a crisp dry finish worth any note at all.
