COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth clean-tasting lager that offers a good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness

Really, this is a pretty bad beer. You’ve really got to strain to sense any sort of defining characteristics other than bland mediocrity. It’s kind of pretty to look at, a clear straw colour, and there’s a bit of a malty flavour with a slight bitterness, but it is truly a beer that demands nor expects any consideration or attention.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
This was the first foreign beer I drank in Norway (excl. Danish and German beers). When they changed the beer laws in Norway in the late 80’s this arrived quickly after. I enjoyed drinking this, made me feel like I was "special" when I opened one of these at a highschool party and so on. These days you won’t find it anymore. Ther beer is fairly middle of the road, but perhaps because it is Canadian, much better than most of its counterparts in the US. Why is that? Well, it seems muc more European, and it doesn’t taste like cornflakes or rice crisies.

350ml bottle, TGI Fridays, Halifax. Pours clear straw yellow, no head. Corn aromas, light sweet taste. Forgettable.

fajry (715) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2014
Fľaša. Zlatá, až bledo zlatá farba. Pena skoro žiadna. Vôňa sladká, sirupová, kukuričná. Chuť kukurice a sladkého sirupu. Celé zlé toto "pivo".

Headbanger (3329) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grains, sweetness, slight skunk, hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is one of the better tasting Canadian pale lagers.

Gerbeer (1861) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
on tape. Pours a clear gold with little head. Not much of any aroma; light malts and corn syrup. Flavors of corn and toasted malt. Not much different than any other Canadian industrial.

zvikar (3505) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle sample at the Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Ariel. Pours yellow with a nice head, aroma of malt, honey and corn, flavor of alcohol and chemical notes, light body

Bottle, clear, golden pour with a white head. Doesn’t smell that good and has a kind of cereal taste to it.

tectactoe (2063) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Bottle: What to say about this one that hasn’t already been said? Pale straw-yellow body, bone-white "head" that’s gone almost instantly. Huge skunky aroma, dusty grain, stale hops... Mostly skunk, though. Taste has notes of metal, old hops, dry grain, skunk, DMS, & mineral water. Overly prickly carbonation. Not a good beer, but I don’t really need to tell you that, do I?

This is a great summer beer with just enough fizz to bring the hops flavors out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
