Nothing out of the ordinary. About as plain as they come. Very bland and stale. But really sure what sets this apart from all others

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2004
Decent hop aroma, colour is a bit pale, head is compact but lasting and the taste had a touch of dryness and also a bit metallic, but not a lot of flavour to go with it .

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Can obtained from Grahmstown, South Africa from my girlfriend: Pours a very pale yellow with a white film for head. The aroma has a very mild saaz hint and a bisquity malt touch. Very thin body, and a mild flavor. However it’s crisp and has a subdued saaz touch. Not much body or bitterness, but it’s refreshing, clean and very decent for a canned South African lager.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2005
beers in a can always lose a couple points but this wasn’t to bad. Smell was pretty non existent a touch of sweet malt and not much else to speak of a fairly middle of the road palate and a very unoffensive flavor a touch sweet i guess.. overall an ok beer i guess but not a whole lot to it.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle in South Africa in Oct 2007. Light golden color with a white head. Light floral and champagne like aroma. Refreshing and simple with a dry finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Can on a plane. Nothing much good to say about this beer except that it had a very nice white head. Otherwise, below average.

ALLOVATE (2419) - 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)

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Pale golden moderate head formation. Slightly skunked but hoppy aroma. Flavor is sweet, slightly carmelized but refreshing enough not to be a drainpour.
