JohnnyJ (4359) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Can. Clear with a fizzy white head. Cheap grain, sweet corn, lightly musty, and some lingering bitterness. Not bad for how cheap it is, could be decent swill.

Tall boy can from a friends house. tastes like an American macro with a salty aftertaste. Rather have a Busch light

This pours well with a nice color, but goes downhill. This has that odd sweet taste that is common in cheap lagers. The smell isn’t much better, having the same sweet smell.

From Trader Joe’s. Starts OK when it is cold. Tastes like any other pale euro lager. As it warms some stale flavors start to come through. Not fantastic at all. Serving: Can

Pour is a dull blonde with a fizzy white head. Aroma is nothing. Some pale malts I guess. Flavor does have a dry pils malt but nothing shows up after that. Finish is wet paper bag. A meh Dutch lager brewed in Germany. It cost a buck at Trader Joes.

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Poured pint can from Trader Joe’s into a nucleated pint glass. Clear light golden color with average white foam which dissipated quickly, leaving little lace. Neutral aroma except for some adjunct corn, but less offensive than most cheap American lagers. I don’t have the metallic complaint other raters have mentioned, either. Flavor was predictable: straw, grain, mild malt, only a hint of hops bitterness. Labelled "A Dutch Style Pilsener" but it’s definitely less hoppy, less pilsener malty, less complex, less dry and less carbonated than classic examples. Not bad for $.99, but there’s so much better beer out there.

NJBeerman013 (1050) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2011
16 oz can from Trader Joe’s. Pours golden yellow with a pure white head. Tastes pretty much like most corn filled macro lagers with a touch of extra tin can. Not good at all.

Pailhead (4819) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Can: The aroma is very light and consists of hints of apple and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a soapy two finger head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with just a touch of sweet cereal notes. The finish has very light grassiness and a hint of apple. Light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, it’s pretty bland but inoffensive. I’m not sure why this is listed as a Pilsner instead of a Pale Lager.

A Belgian macro I’ve never heard of and picked up at Trader Joe’s, I’m sure this will be great... dark clear gold, big white head, good retention and excellent lacing, really?... the nose is god awful skunk and wet grains... the taste is terrible, sweet grains with chemicals and skunk... pass

Pale Lager Month, installment number four brings us back to canned Dutch beer purchased at Trader Joe’s.... but what’s this? It’s made in Belgium? The beer pours golden with a big white head. The aroma is faint, and what’s there really holds few pleasantries.... Mostly it just smells like wet breakfast cereal. The flavor is about as exciting, more of that breakfast cereal sweetness, some mild crisp hoppiness cuts through but fades away quickly. The best thing about it is that it has a sort of nice mild lingering bitterness. If I didn’t like beer very much I’d be buying this by the case, it’s just a very light very smooth, slightly sweet lager that is really easy to drink.... not to mention it’s cheap. A few days ago I rated Milwaukee’s Best Light; after rating it surprisingly high compared to the average I went and read some ratings on it. Lots of folks with far more ratings under their belt than I said things like "carbonated alcoholic water" I tell you this, in a battle of smooth and boring this would knock the socks off of Milwaukee’s Best Light.
