Just a slightly-below-average canned lager. Doesn’t have any qualities that would see you rushing back for more but nor does it have that sickly-sweet edge or metallic bitterness that tends to make cheapo lagers less palatable.

alexmate (70) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Appearance: A golden yellow urine colour, minimal lacing and a very small head which wasn’t retained. Nose: Some lemon, light malt, a creamy vomit smell which might be hay or floral, some orange. Taste; lemon and lime, not much bitterness or hoppiness, some grass notes, it is let down by being too fizzy and thin. I thought it was slightly spicy on the aftertaste when I tried it many years ago, but this seems very subtle in the new lower ABV version, if present at all. Pretty good and better than most mass-produced lager.

Bottle at Newsroom. This place used to be a cool spot. How the mighty have fallen. It’s in the stubby bottle so hard to see the color but assuming it’s a light golden. Smell is the traditional kind of frat party grainy quality. Taste is pretty simple and a standard lager. Plenty of grain but feels like your typical domestic effort. The commercials were outstanding. The beer needs the beach to achieve something close to average. You are very ugly!

Maakun (3919) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2016
Clear golden with white head. Some sweet malts, light grass, a touch of peach and paper. Under medium sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied. Not bad.

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle - Pours pale gold with fizzy head. Hay, light lemon, perfume aroma. Tastes of old skunk water, hay, light toast, watered. Best cold, on a Montego Bay beach.

BlazerT (499) - POLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle. Clear, golden with medium, semo-densed, white head. Medicore head retention and lacing. Aroma is mainly malty - hard to distinguish, but maybe some corn. Taste is semi-sweet nothing else. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation (too much). In general, once again very very average pale lager. Only to drink in Jamaican beach ;)

Truly everything that is repulsive about mass produced rubbish for warmer climates. Nasty chemical rubbish. Never again thank you very much.

Nonshaugen (434) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2016
33 cl bottle. Crystal clear, thick white head, nice rolling carbonation. Not much aroma to the nose. Mouthfeel is fizzy, dry and sticky. Taste is sharp, with some citrus, orange and caramel notes at the end. Not a bad beer at all.

Nische (1884) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with creamy white head. Mellow and easy to drink. Very light citrus, grain, hay, a bit of cardboard. Good for a pale lager. Clean.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Vaalean kullankeltainen kirkas olut kohtalaisen kivalla, pitsiä jättävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu lagereille tyypillisesti varsin tunkkainen ja mitäänsanomaton. Maku on todella vetinen ja laimea, pienellä maltaan maulla ja katkeruudella. Suutuntuma hiilihappoinen ja raikas, mutta vetinen ja ohut. Kylmänä menee laimean vichyn korvikkeena ja varmaan toimii Jamaikalla, mutta ei täällä. Kivasta pullosta plussaa.
