DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
From big bottle, from cooler, in plastic cup on Ke’e beach, Kaua’i 22/08/12. Slight honey on straw aroma. Soft, lightly carbonated straw, honey and lemony boiled sweet flavoured. Raffia tablemat. Contains ’island cane’, emblazoned with the archipelago, brewed in Irwindale, CA. The dirty, filthy, robbin’ bastards. Beautiful spot for a crap pale lager.

"a little sweeter aroma and flavor than most in the style, which makes it stand out...a little. a quaffable yellow pee pee water, but still yellow pee pee water. very little hop presence or dare i say, complexity, but refreshing and lacking in skunk."

PorterPounder (6291) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Honolulu, Hi - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Medium gold pour, light white head, slight lace. Brief wet cardboard aroma. Flavor has some buttery notes, hint of metal, but not terrible overall. Somewhat of an oily mouthfeel. Noticed this beer as soon as I landed in Hawaii and remembered seeing the blue label with a warrior on it as a kid in California years ago.

gyllenbock (5913) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Can during a flight with Hawaiian Airlines between HNL and OAK, August 2013. Clear golden with a white head. A typical boring and sweet Pale Lager with a weak aroma and taste of bread, paper and light notes of fruit.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2010
22oz bottle for $1.95. Nice. Nose is corny, lightly sweet, some sugar, grain. Just rather sweet and pale lagery. Almost like a different PBR in a sense. Pours golden, thin head leaves quickly. Flavor has corn, grainy malt, sweetness, light crispness in the finish. Not much flavor, standard Miller product flavors here. Thin light body, crisp, thirst quenching. It is what it is. I am not morally opposed to pale lager so my rating might be a little high, but it when looked at within style guidelines it was not that bad really.
