From a bottle at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting, thanks to Travlr! Not a sour, but something to break up the tasting with a new country tick. Poured like a standard cheap Euro-style pale lager - which I guess is a good thing to be consistent, I guess. Corn. Some skunk. Sweetness, no real bitterness in this one. Not totally awful to be fair.

Alengrin (4344) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Venezuela’s national macro lager, with moussy, cream white, stable head and pale golden blonde colour with somewhat greenish hue, cristal clear. Aroma of popcorn, sourish grains, iron and a faint hint of grass. Blandly sweetish, corny taste, grainy sourishness, metallic with thin body and very low to almost non-existent hop bitterness in the finish. Acceptable for what it is but not distinctive in any kind of way, as with all macro lagers.

Theydon_Bois (16475) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle split at LKS HeIgHtS, thanks to Daniel, 21/04/15. Pale yellow/blonde topped with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is paper, almond notes, grain, straw. Taste comprises pale malt, grain, light vanilla, straw, cereals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Not the worst PL in the world.

Vighals (2935) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Gulbrun klar med lavt hvitt skum. Søtlig lukt, noe papp. Smaker hjemmebrent og søtlig farin. kort.... heldigvis

The_Osprey (5814) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s. BB July 2015, 4.5%. Very pale yellow, clear, sparkling, small white head. Aroma is strange - musty malt, piney / minty. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is thin and watery, some cream cracker, a little drying booze. Almost nothing to it at all, but nothing particularly offensive I suppose.

Bottle share at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Thanks to Dan. Almost clear and very pale gold beer, tiny white head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Rice crispies and cornflakes abound in the pale malts. Forensic trace of citrus. Light dry finish. Pretty grim.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours clear yellow, lightly effervescent. With a foamy white head. Simple sugary pale bread in the nose, grains. Medium sweet flavor with doughy white bread, some vegetables, hay, pale grains. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, simple white bread, minimal hop presence. OK.

Scopey (12007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
Bottle thanks to Dan. It pours very, very pale gold with a small white head. The nose is watery, grainy, paper and cornflakes. The taste is crisp, paper, sugary, dull citrus, soap and sweet corn with a dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Basic lagery action.

I used to drink this beer here and there when I was younger, but haven’t had it lately. Mostly going on older memories. Contemplated pickin up a 6-pack for something on the cheaper side, but think I’ll pass and maybe just buy a single one time if out to eat, so I can get a more updated opnion. I remember it being better than most of the bud-type domestics.....maybe similar to corona, but a slightly different style. Is more like a Pilsner I believe. Not that bad of a beach/lawnmower beer. Nothing more, nothing less.
