Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2013
A finger and half of head on a clear, golden colored body. The aroma is grain, mostly rice. The taste has mild bitterness and moderate sweetness. One then the other on the profile. The texture is a little sticky with moderate carbonation and light body. The sweetness was a bit much and with the sticky texture makes this a "no-go".

The_Osprey (4887) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle share at Kenny’s 20K, many thanks to Chriso for this French Polynesia tick. As ’Hinano Tahiti’, 5%. Clear orange, still, big foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet, toffee-ish, papery. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is corn, wafer, plain biscuity malt, soft finish. Pretty standard pale lager.

Sparkling, clear pale straw, white frothy head is quite short. Sweet and malty, mildy hay, corn, light apple. Medium body, semidry, light feel,average carbonation. Quite basic, light summer beer with little really interesting going on.

Bottle shared at Ken’s 20k celebration. Thanks to our host, Chriso, for digging this from his archives. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of apple, bread and malt. Sweet taste with more bread and malt. Not too bad.

Scopey (10641) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Bottle at ChrisO, during Kenny’s 20K celebrations. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, toasted grain, cracker, sweet action and apple pie. The taste is crisp, bitter, soda water, white bread, generic sweetness and corn in the cob. Light - medium body and average carbonation. Perhaps a bit too much of a corn vibe, but its not all that bad.

DrNosha (1028) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2015
Flasche und Dose. Hellgelbes Bier mit grobem Schaum. Keicht süsser Getreideduft. Im Geschmack erst süss, dann im Abgang etwas herb. Recht flach, aber süffig.

darioklc (624) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 13, 2015
Yellow body with a nicely frothy white head. Nose is sour malt, nothing special. Flavor is typical macro lager. Mouthfeel is thin, typical for the style. Drinkability is good.
