Princette (8) - Auckland, - JAN 18, 2011
The best of the Korean beers, again over hopped and a potent brew, but this beer is easier on the palate, its toasted flavour and cleaner water gives it a more satisfactory taste. Points also for its cheap cost (1500 won for a 26 oz bottle) and the fact you get it chilled at virtually any corner store in far off places like Yeongju and Iksan

minutemat (1975) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
330ml bottle @ the 11th Shrewsbury bottle Share, Feb 15, courtesy of myself, as Hite Ice Point. Pours blonde. Grassy, strangely herbel aroma. Taste isn’t as bad as I thought, slightly sweetish with a light drinkable character.

olsvammel (3691) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at a food stale in Saluhallen in Örebro. Light smell, artificial and fruity. Very bland taste, watery like carbonated water.

Oginme (53) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Poured from can: very light straw colored with frothy white head. aroma of sweet grain. Taste is very grainy, lightly sweet with some balancing bitterness. Finish is unremarkable. Very light in body, very one dimensional in flavor.

Clear pale yellow with moderate white spotting that goes straight to the edge. Noseis pale malt, light vanilla, trace of caramel, grain, paper. Taste comprises light citric notes, grassy, pale malt, cereals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Not to bad for a pale lager.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s flat. Thanks to Daniel for this one. Bright clear pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and dry and mildly crisp. Light pale malts, some sweetness. Modest paper. Trace of fruits. Light dry finish. It’s not great but there are many many worse pale lagers out there.

BlackHaddock (4379) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
330ml bottle (as Ice Point): shared at the Feb 2015 Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange. Cheers Mat for this offering. Pale, clear and crap. Corn notes, sweet and just generally poor in all aspects. Not even sure it would taste any good in bright, warm sunshine on a beach.

The_Osprey (2399) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
330ml can from Oriental Supermarket Bayswater, shared at Leighton’s. Pale orange, clear, light sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is corny, musty, sweet and syrupy. Body is medium, slightly spritzy, a bit foamy. Taste is corny, light biscuity malt, soft bitterness. Better than expected.

massingasetta (330) - München, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2015
This is a surprisingly good beer in the category International Lager - a pale lager that resembles the traditional beers of Europe and the old world but is lacking the ambition of subtle bitterness and any taste that hinders drinkability.

Arek (377) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland
Jasnozłote, mocno nasycone piwo z cienką, od razu znikającą pianą i słodowym aromatem. W smaku pełne i orzeźwiające o słodkawym, kukurydzianym posmaku i łagodną goryczką na finiszu.
