hockeybeerguy (1953) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Another after hockey beer. Reviewed from notes, a couple stolen out of the locker room to take back for observation purposes. Here are my notes from cans and bottles. This was poured into pilseners and pint glasses and honestly, there really isn’t any difference. The appearance was a fairly decent looking clear yellow color with a vast amount of carbonation to be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a rapidly dissipating one finger white foamy head. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell had some cooked corn - kinda like adjuncts. The taste was mainly sweet through the cooked corn. There was a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat exceptionally light and sessionable. The carbonation lends a decent harshness, but nothing to scrape your tongue. Overall, serviceable light lager, nothing too bad, but nothing mind blowing.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, leicht süß. Geschmack wässrig, leicht malzig getreidig, minimal herb.

HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
355ml can. This used to be my go-to beer back like 12 years ago, but they stopped selling it in NB and I moved on to imports and crafts. Picked up a case in Nova Scotia where it is still sold. Clear, flat yellow colour, head lasted about 3 seconds. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste is reasonably full for a pale lager, goes sweet and grains rather than adjuncts and corn like so many cheap lagers. I still like that better than crap like Bud or Coors or even other Moose products. Might just be extra points for nostalgia, or a 6% beer for a 4% price.

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear yellow to golden color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, slightly mint, slightly sweet-bitter and a bit weird.

jesperhammer (2865) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2013
04-APR-2013, bottle @hotel room in Berlin. Pale golden with low white head. Aroma is sweet malty hay and toast. Taste the same. OK body and carbonation for a pale lager but expected more at 6%. Not a lot of bitterness but fine little drink.
