foxo82 (813) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from a duty free shop at Munich Airport. Clear, slightly cloudy, amber, carbonated with a small head. Weak aroma is bland like a pale lager. Sweet malty taste, very salty with slight bitterness. Watery mouthfeel. This really is a MOR pale lager in Bavarian clothing so I can only assume they had it at the airport to get it out of the country as soon as possible.

Smells malty sweet and lagery. Aka nothing. Pours piss yellow, little head, no lacing. Taste sours quickly. Cloying and rather gross. Bottle from licbo gift pack.

Mild aroma has hay and corn. Clear straw yellow, bubbly, big frothy head goes fast. Taste has same elements as aroma and is quite fresh. Medium body, light feel, average carbonation, medium long flavor is bit harsh and dry. This one will work nicely on a hot summer day.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Very clear golden pour with a light head. Grassy slightly skunky nose. Very sweet. Watery. Lots of hops. Just a touch malty. Every easy to drink but not too much here I like. Goes down well enough, but too sweet for my tastes. Slightly oily finish. I’ll pass on this one. Actually it reminds me of the plethora of Euro-pils that seem to be everywhere locally. I actually had to check the style on this.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit minerally with a nice clean straw/hay flavour. Bright and clear with a light touch of sulphur as well. Delicately floral hoppiness with a lingering minerally character. Firm and clean - I think it’s pretty solid actually.

DuffMan (8198) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Medium golden with just a little haziness, medium carbo, and poor head retention. Aroma is sweet and more biscuity than grainy. Flavour is much the same with very little hops. Just okay.

jaghana (4831) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer, nose is low. Aroma is on light caramel malt, grassy and dusty hops. Paper notes at the finish, not outstanding at all.
