Cantabrian (764) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 20, 2013
Strong contender to be the worst beer ever. I must confess that the whole low rating is based on stench only. I could not even try this shite, so afraid I was that I would barf on the instant.

WhoU (105) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottles in SA. Golden straw with medium carbonation. Bread, hay refreshing in South African summer but watery and nothing special. Similar story to the other pale lagers. Atleast has some hoppy advantage.

JonMoore (1809) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught at Ferryman’s, V+A Waterfront, Cape Town. A poor to average pilsner.

2.6
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Draught at World of Beer, Johannesburg
Blond color with egg white like head. Delicate malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, but the flavor is quite poor, the bitterness low and the aftertaste metallic.

JorgeLee (1070) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle on safari. Not entirely convinced by the ’kiss of the saaz hop’, this was another fairly sweet hot country lager.

aleksander9 (285) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Compared to other pils, its smoother, creamier, and not to artificial.Good stuff, easy to drink.

PriorL (1279) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small white rather stable head, NOSE: grains some hops, little bitterness. TASTE: grains, but mostly very neutral... Though little bitter aftertaste

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 3/20
AtronSeige (473) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 5, 2013
Aroma: Sweet grain, golden syrup, No hops Appearance: Straw yellow, slight haze, thin white head. Small amount of lacing. visible carbonation. Taste: Sweet, grain malt. Very slight bitterness in the background. Medium dry. Crisp. No aftertaste. Palate:very little carbonation, thin body. Overall: A drinkable beer, but not something to go looking for. The "Kiss of the Saaz Hops" clearly means that the hops barely touched the beer! Not recommended. 340ml bottle poured.

maneliquor (2788) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2013
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
