Westmeister (1890) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with decent lacing. Smell is wheat and some hops with some citrus and also some sweetness. Taste was better than I would have thought. Refreshing, crisp, a good hop bite. In the top tier of pale lagers for whatever that is worth.

Holmen2 (1406) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
From can at train to Lille with KL, AKH and GH. Clear golden. White lacing and diminishing head. Weak aroma of hops, grain and maize. Similar taste. Rather sweet and with a hint of pears. A mediocre Eurolager.

Pretty standard mass produced euro lager better than your Carling’s worse than Stella hints at that Belgium taste but let’s itself down. Best drunk: ifntheresnonly fosters on tap on a hot day

33 cl. can at home from fridge in large glass. Pretty standard lager with normal carbonation, colour and head. Surprisingly little aroma, partly brewed on maize which I do not like and a bit too sweet for my taste. Where the 1664 does score over many lagers in my oppinion is its rather distinctive, lingering aftertaste which I would claim I could recognize at a blind tasting - though to be fair, I have never tried. An easy drink and I remember it as being distinctly better on tap.

Surprisingly good for a PL, though I like Kronenbourg’s blanc so it shouldn’t be that surprising. Smooth and richly malty.

Rammer (289) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2015
Tolerant lager. Malt in the aroma, the taste is very simple, but not obnoxious. Not the worst option.

Dervock (520) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle - yellow, fizzy, corn with hints of hop. Taste us sweet up front. Not great.

Poured from tap, decent amber colour with good head. Malty nose followed by clean malty taste. Easy drinking

TedE (217) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Sweet lavender and malt nose. Strange. Amber with small head, one or two bubbles. Taste is crisp, watery, not a lot happening. Aftertaste is faint cooked vegetables, bit of malt, then tinny hops to finish. Pretty ordinary.
