SilkTork (5509) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A dull pale lager with a light, dirty bitterness of no distinction or character. Clings to the mouth unpleasantly. Slight whiff and taste of corn. Unsatisfactory.

Clear yellow. Medium head. Hoppy nose with hay notes. Sweet hoppy flavor. A bit watery. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nothing special.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Dark yellow colored, little white head. Lively carbonation. Fruits, lemon and esters in surprisingly strong aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also fruity with corny lemon touch, some carbonation also there. Some cardboard in aftertaste.

DuffMan (8943) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Yellow-gold, modest head. Offputting aroma of vegetables (cucumber, celery) with corn syrup . Palate was much the same with an unpleasant sharp finish, almost sour. I may have had a bad bottle.

EithCubes (5437) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle. Floral hops and simplistic malt in the nose. Clear yellow body with a creamy white head. Hay, hops, and surprisingly sweet maltiness in the taste, light bodied-watery but somehow more substantive than most standard pale lagers. Some straw/honey and only the slightest wisp of bitterness (there’s more apple there, for example). Pretty good for style, but that’s not saying much.

hotstuff (4777) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle. Large white fizzy head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, transparent, carbonation, and a yellow golden hue. Nose was malty, sweet and citrusy. Flavor was sweet, somewhat harsh, watery, thin, somewhat malty and hoppy, and fruit. Overall weak tasting. Smooth, watery and thin palate. Light body. Not impressed.

HenrikSoegaard (12745) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Yelllow colour. OK hoppy aroma, a bit week. OK flavor, Moderate short biiter finish. A little metallic. Very watery palate and too fizzy, there a many more better cheaper pale lagers around.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2006
330ml bottle. Pours very pale gold with medium, frothy head. Fresh and clean but a bit weak and lifeless, minimal carbonation, all a bit boring and italian.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Pours golden w/ medium sized white spritzy froth. Aroma is sour hay. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers and few residual bubbles. Flavors are dry, crisp, clean, soft, and slightly fruity. The finish has light impact bitternes. Nice brew. Doesnt taste like it smells.
