yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2008
355ml bottle, 4.9% a/v Pours very light gold with an average white head. Looks like an american macro. The nose is slightly corny, and funky. The taste is strangely sweet, almost candy flavours in there, as well as some green matter. The aftertaste is fairly clean and dry. A much better beer then I expected really, a bit too sweet and cheap tasting, but not bad.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Thanks, after4ever! Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Corn and paper aroma. Light body and medium carbonation. Sweet corn and paper taste with a little grass in there somewhere. This one stands out as the most papery beer Iíve tried. Iím guessing it has been stored for quite a while at above-cellar temps. Under better circumstances it might have been OK, or at least OK except for the corn.

330. Thanks, Maria! Crystal clear medium gold. Thin fizzy white head. Big funky stale wet cardboard nose. Harsh lemony notes there as well. Light fizzy body. Sour artichoke and lemon mid-palate. Stale chemical finish.

Bottle in Ho chi mihn city during travel. It was a hot day and the beer was refreshing, but really a very booring beer. Stale with low bitterness

Moukouf (1) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2008 does not count
Really disappointed of this beer, even if I only wanted to try this beer, sold by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO). The upper laber near the cap is ridiculously easy to remove (even if you donít want to!) and is the total opposite of the cap itself, which you will need a bottle opened. This beer has nothing extra, and I might compare it to any regular beer you might find in a grocery store (ie: Molson, Labatt) bought it once... but wont twice...

Bottle at home. Yellow with a white head, quickly gone. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, rice). Flavor moderate sweet and acidic. Light body.

I had this in a Vietnamese retaurant. At least the food was good. :) Kidding! Actually was ok. More or less a typical pale lager, which I consider to be a boring beer category. But this was ok, malty, some corn adjuncts in the aroma and taste. Typical thin medium mouthfeel. Color was slightly darker than a normal pale lager, yellow with a tinge of red/brown. Iím actaully transcribing from notes I took on a paper napkin in the restaurant. Overall, slightly better than most pale lagers.
