Boyd (2) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2012 does not count
Gentle malt with subtle hops that provides a refreshing clean after taste and smooth finish. Best enjoyed on it’s own or with spicy asian, fish and shellfish meals.

Davros (1943) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours gold with a large, lasting head. Nose shows corn and spicy, floral hops. Also some faint sweet malt. Flavours are a bit better, no vegetal notes, instead being focussed on the light sweet malt and very faint spicy hops. Needs more carbonation. Very watery.

drpimento (2226) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Going to have to wade thru this one. Served a bit cold, with a fine, off white, creamy head that settled to a light cover and loads of thick creamy lace. Color is a clear amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is simple and mild: euro lager, grain. Flavor’s on the sweet side, with some malt, faint carbonic tang, wet cardboard. Body’s ok, carbo is on the flat side. Finish is like flavor, too long, and I just want it to be over.

Jimthechap (1652) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 2, 2012
Tasted on tap, standard golden colour with a white head. Not a lot to offer in the way of aroma, or flavour come to that. Gold and cold and that’s about it.

Brodies_Best (247) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2011
Not too much aroma, pours golden with white head. Doesn’t leave much on the palate. Good summer drop in the heat.

joe19612 (1844) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle. This pours a nice golden honey colour, with a good white head. The aroma is bit bland some malt. and fruit, the taste is all sweet malts with a dry finish.

Koelschtrinker (10670) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Das Bier startet sehr mild, eigentlich ist nur ein leichter Getreideton zu erkennen. Die Note wird im Mittelteil etwas metallern, sonst ändert sich nichts. Wässriger Nachgeschmack mit malzigem Unterton. Zumindest soll er das wohl sein. Test vom 24.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,4,6,3,10,4 - 4,65

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2011
[330ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Clear golden pour, thin white head that reduces pretty quickly. Aromas of malt and some grainy corn notes. On the palate, thin but drinkable malty lager, with a sweet malty aftertaste. Not amazing, not terrible. The flavours get a tad metallic towards the end, but it’s drinkable stuff [14052011]

maneliquor (3112) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Slightly pale in colour and flavours. basically an easy drinking, slightly fruity ale. Sweet beer, OK

Blairgus (2610) - California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
10 May 2011, bottle. med yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. nose is a sweet malt, vegetable and bubble gum mix. kind of sickly i think. med body and fairly fizzy. tastes of cherry apple juice and malt. a bit heavy and too bold for a lager. i’m not a fan. even for an ale, this is just sweet, syrupy mess.
