Augdraught1981 (116) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Watery pale lager with very little to go on. Slightly sweet and refreshing on a hot day and not much else.

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml from Japan. Golden yellow with white head. Average industrial lager, certainly not the worst one.

bad beer. Birra normalissima, per niente buona, non si distingue dalle birre commerciali più famose.

Bottle paired with sushi. Rather average lager beer, nothing really special about this one. Would be good as a ice cold beer on a hot day.

Dzhigga (120) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 29, 2014
Can. Golden color with medium fast-disappearing head. Malty aroma. Medium hops in aftertaste. Not bad for Asian beer.

Bottle, pours golden with a thin white head, slightly sweet with a bitter finish, not that great

radarsock (897) - Vermont, USA - APR 27, 2014
Had on tap at the only Thai restaurant in town. Was $3 for the full pint. Pours a dark yellow with which a quickly-diminishing off-white head half a finger in length stood. Experienced rice malt, noble hops, and wheat grain. Pretty straightforward. Good for a hot day, may even surpass lemonade. Swishable.
