GoufCustom (970) - HONG KONG - JUL 8, 2013


330 ml can labelled “Holland Import Premium Beer” bought at CR Vanguard Supermarket in North Point.

Piss-like golden yellow colour; Razor-thin head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Near zero lacing and notable carbonation; Sweet smell of malt, strong corn and rice, syrup, wet cardboard and light grass; Taste of light malt, with sweet corn, strong rice, light wet cardboard, liquorices and straw. Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is typical macro - thin malt loaded with corn and rice, fading sweetness and light wet cardboard; No real hoppiness, all from extract, with faint grass nose, strong liquorice, fake citrus, and unusually strong bitterness and astringency for finish. Too artificial to be impressive though; Slightly dry after taste, quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: One good thing about this cheapo macro is that it’s upfront and honest, listing maltose and hop extract as ingredients, and true enough it tastes like a rice and corn-loaded Chinese macro plus Flensburger-like fake bitterness. Other than that, it’s better than most Asian macros and even Budweiser. Don’t mean to be a compliment, though.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2010
Can: Actually quite ok. White head and clear golden yellow body. Smell is typical and taste is bit better than other cheapos from Bavaria. Pretty ok bitter and again better balanced than some others from Bavaria.

Shaney (2426) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2012
#965 Im Albert Heijn in Venlo für wenig Geld erworben. Die Dose erinnert in seiner grün-weiß gehaltenen Aufmachung an ein Heineken. Dem ist leider nicht so. Hellgelb-pilsige Farbe mit wenig Schaum. In der Nase ganz verhalten hopfig. Im Antrunk dann wässrig. Geschmacklich erst lange nichts, dann leicht getreidig, süßlich und wenig ausgeprägt. Der Hopfen kommt nur ansatzweise vor. Brauch ich nicht wieder! Test vom 11.3.2010, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 8,6,8,6,9,6 - 6,65

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Can. Pale yellow. Some fizzy head. Metallic, tinny aroma. Mild carbonation. Not bad. Has the metallic flavors too but finishes very dry and is really not so bad.

Borresteijn (5187) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2010
33cl Can from Albert Heijn, as Holland Import Pilsener Bier, other side says Cerveza Holandesa. Clear light golden colour, white head. Foul skunk aroma, grain, sulphur. Flavour is light sweet, some skunk, grain, CO2, cardboard bitter finish. Light bodied. Not worth the 35 cents I paid for it.

maekchu (2536) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 3, 2014
Can from somewhere. Sewer, spirits nose. Harsh fake malt, tiny hopping, and it goes nowhere. Thin and rasty on the tongue. Few redeeming qualties in this one. Well, it IS cold and liquid (....maybe it’d be better warm and solid?.....)

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
Can, found in Hong Kong. Golden colour with a gluey, vaguely malty aroma. The body is relatively full for a macro, with some grassy hop, more glue, light grains and subtle alcohol. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it enjoyable, but at least it’s not objectionable.
