polaxis (73) - - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle, at home, @10°C. Pours clear yellow with a crispy white head. Sweet sweet malty aroma, cornish note. Dry bitterness into the finish. Surprisingly good, probably due to sweet malty arome which stands out between all the Swiss industrial lagers.

Bottle from Salling, Aalborg, shared with Simonsen
Pale golden, white head. Smell of bad medicin and cooked vegetables. Not much taste, hint of spices, better than the aroma at least. To be fair this bottle was bought for the country tick, not an expectation of something extraordinare

No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet bread, cereal and grain. Tastes of bread, sweet cereal and straw. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerSkull (1286) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2014
(Bottle). Scent of malt, wet grass and hops. Very thin and watery taste of sour grainy malt, rice and a minimal amount of hops. I managed to drink this beer to the Vietnamese food I ate at the same time, but without the food this beer had probably been undrinkable.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Unclean lager with lots of cereals and a skunked, cheap hop bitterness. Not quite as watery as many in the style.

Drucken på restaurang i London. Fyller sin funktion till stark vietnamesisk mat, men absolut inte mer än så. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (1032) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2014
The aroma is slightly skunky with light malts and dough yeast, and the appearance is a clear straw color with a small white head. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a medium body, thick and slick texture, abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.

Xavalias (125) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle in a Restaurant in Copenhagen. Pours pale yellow with little head that disappears immediately. Aroma is clean but light, some malt... Taste is mildly bitter and sweet. Palate is watery

HuskerTan (486) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. A- Vomit, skunky, fruity. A- Golden color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Fruity, sweet corn, watery, malty, honey, cereal. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, sweet finish. O- As first sniff I wanted to die, it was awful. Thankfully I got past it to try. Let me say that the flavor is not amazing by a long long long shot, it’s a pale lager for God’s sake. But it sure beats the hell out of the aroma. All in all, if I could plug my nose, this would be a drinkable and above average pale lager.
