pootzboy (1673) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle from LCBO: Light gold modest white head with fair retention, light lacing of the glass. Aroma is mainstrean commercial euro-lager, light noble hop grassiness, light sulphur must from lager yeast and light grainy tones. Light body, smooth with some real malt and hop ambiance finishes fast clean and sharp. For a light lager this is better than most commercial mega-brewed Canadian lights...at least it’s all gristed malt, no malt extracts no corn or rice and has a modicum of flavor. Drinkable but absolutely undistinguished.

330ml bottle

I tried this beer on January 29, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a very pale gold colour, quite possibly the palest beer I’ve seen out of a bottle. with a very thin white head. The aroma was very weak with grainy malt, and metallic hints. The mouthfeel was medium-thin with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, with a bitter metallic finish

330ml bottle. Watery and sickly pale with a light straw colour. A mass of small bubble race up the side of the glass and dissappear as soon as they hit the top. Malt and grainy aroma that is typical of pale lagers. Tastes as bland as it looks and smells. Might be okay on a hot day in Seoul.

CheersMate (1318) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Purchased at an Asian market in downtown Seattle.1600 ml. bottle. Reminded me of Budweiser except it seemed a little lighter in terms of hops and malts. Beer was quite refreshing. Drank out of a paper bag. This homeless guy offered us crack, we didn’t want the crack so we gave him the rest of our beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle, at Pyongyang restaurant in Siem Reap. Served at about room temperature so that might affect the rating. Bright gold, flat looking. Candied fruit aroma. Thin palate. Sour, bland, and bad.

madquacker (1075) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2009
Somehow this (seems to be) sold in Oz as something called Premium Cleanskin Beer at about $30 a case. No doubt is some currency arbitrage in there making this that cheap, but is pretty ordinary. Watery and dull with plenty of cheap sweet grain. Not even the lurid look of the photo of it on this page going for it.

Bottle shared by Jay, your a dick, i mean thanks for the tick. haha pours a generic pale golden body with a white fizzy head. Paper cardboard, adjuncts, crisp sweet bitter and metallic. Down the drain is where this belongs.
