Bif (1833) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a frothy head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of fresh grain, some malt sweetness and bit of pine in the background. Has a mild easy taste of malt sweetness and fresh grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth and a bit refreshing. Nothing fancy here. Nice drinkable lager, nothing to rave about but better than most macro offerings. probably best on a hot day.

jamestulloch (2695) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Aroma: Sweet honey and cashew nut.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a small white head that quickly fades to nothing. Very little carbonation.

Taste: Slightly sweeter and maltier than most macro lagers. Pretty average.

Palate: Thin body with a slick mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: Not much to get excited about here. As far as lagers go, this is okay.

EithCubes (5371) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle by SEP-12. Lightly sweet, very malty nose, pours a gleaming clear golden with tons of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is sweet and malty, lightly grainy with faint fruity and vanilla accents in the deep bg. Crisp but relatively smooth, clean light body, fresh and refreshing. I seem to like this a lot more than everyone else.

KeefOz (1264) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2012
Poured from stubbie a clear golden amber colour with a thick foamy off-white head that disappeared quickly. Laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of yeast, hops and traces of malt. Taste malty and slightly sweet. Light bodied. Clean soft finish but a trace metallic.

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 (2545) - 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 (2771) - 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 (2064) - 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.
