Can from Carrefour, drunk 4/23/15
Really just knocking off a Tahiti rate and had super low expactions. Thankfully this was actually quite good. No flaws to it which is always a plus and well-enough attenuated. While it could be a touch more dry, as most industrial pale lagers could, the bit of extra maltiness, which importantly, tastes of actual malt, isn’t unwanted. Moderate carbonation, light bitterness and just a touch of grassy and peppery hoppiness. Clear gold with a large white head that recedes to cover. Fine, drinkable. One could do much worse than drink this on a beach in Tahiti.

Very bland and a slight bit off putting. The pour is a gorgeous golden blonde colour with a finger of soapy pure white head. The nose is grainy and cereally with light grassy and skunk notes evading the hop. A pinch of citrus and lightly floral the main flavours are grain and skunky hops. Crisp and refreshing. Would go great on a Tahitian beach. Evokes memories of the South Pacific trip of 2010 for me.

Kolor - żółty, blady, klarowny. Piana - drobna, wysoka i trwała. Zapach - delikatny słodowy z nutą owocową. Smak - średni słód, średnie nuty owocowe, kapka chmielu, średnia słodycz, lekka goryczka. Tylko do gaszenia pragnienia.

CanCrusher (728) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Clear, pale golden colour with small, white head. Aroma is mostly bready with some grassy hints. Taste is light bitter at the start and quite bitter at the end, what is rare to find in lagers. Nothing outstanding, but I like the bitternes of this beer.

Kita (1372) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with CanCrusher. Pours clear pale golden with thin white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is bready, mild yeasty and grassy. Tastes light sweet and sour grainy with crisp and dry mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation in palate. Very similar to German pilseners, but much more weaker...

Alengrin (3029) - BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2015
The standard lager from Tahiti, with loose but lacing, lightly greyish white head and clear pale golden colour with somewhat greenish hue and vivid sparkling. Minerals and sourish grains in the nose (rice!), iron, grass, faint biscuit touch and a whiff of burning plastic. Neutral onset with sharpish, minerally carbonation, slightly oily but otherwise thin mouthfeel, sourish rice effect as in an Asian lager, clearly metallic ’sound’, grassy hop bitterishness in the finish, medium long and drying, but this may also have to do with a kind of chemical, plastic-like solvents effect, as in many ’macro lagers’. I can only see this function ice cold on a Tahiti beach, with the Polynesian ladies suggested on the label not too far away... Outside of this context: bland and boring lager as there are far too many in this world.

Pale golden color, clear; quickly dissipating white head - aroma of cereals, grain, some hints of citrus hops - slightly sweet and medium bitter taste - light body, thin texture, average carbonation - short, citrusy finish.

Not the palest, or the worst tasting lager I ever had. If I was ever in Tahiti I’d be happy to drink this, it’s not scary, it’s just not that different or fulfilling.
