Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Light golden with a moderate head. The beer has a lot of carbonation and grows in your mouth. The flavour is thin with light notes of caramel and a very light bitterness. Uncomplicated and quenching, but without any flavour worth mentioning.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 7/20
imdownthepub (10026) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2007
Bottled, pasteyrised, 330ml. From Taste Buds, Adderbury, Oxon. Yellow straw colour, carbonated with white head. Thin light lager with little flavour to discover, there is a cardboardy malt, crispish I suppose, with a sharp chemical bitterness. Not good at all.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Süßer und würziger Antrunk, die Süße verschwindet zum Mittelteil hin. Dafür tritt, wenn auch nur schwach, der Hopfen in den Vordergrund. Im Nachgeschmack setzt sich dies im Prinzip fort, alles wirkt nur etwas schwächer und etwas wässrig, wogegen auch das nun auftretende Malz nichts machen kann. Test vom 15.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,9,8,6,9 - 8,60

Travlr (9997) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2009
I worked in a beer warehouse in Bayonne New Jersey when I was in college, and we imported Moosehead. I used to wear a T shirt, while I was driving a forklift, that said "Moosehead is better than no head at all." So I guess that made an impression on me.

Lubiere (9793) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
MacAuslan version: Yellow fizzy beer.Light grassy nose, with a little skunk making its dirty business. Crisp malt with not much hops. The body is mearily OK. Better to drink this at close to freezng temperature, like they do in Acadia.
