ComradeK (1084) - Sydney, - OCT 19, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts fairly well, but does not leave much lace. Grassy hops are the most prominent aroma, backed by sweet, grainy malt. Uncomplicated grass hops up front give way to white bread and some grainy malt. The finish is quite watery. An uninspiring but fairly inoffensive lager.

Lubiere (12241) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
A golden lager with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, crisp malt with light adjunct (rice?), light mineral notes, so-so. In mouth, a crisp German malt with light grassy German hops, light mineral notes, not bad. Bottle from Drinkies in Cairo.

Bottle. Aroma and taste is malty, mettalic and grassy. A bit watery, but drinkable.

BlackHaddock (5636) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
500ml can brought back from Egypt last year after a holiday. Poured three times into a Pilsner glass at home on 30th Jan 2016. Very pale golden body, full snowy white head on each pour. Mild grainy and grassy nose, slight malt flavour, refreshing but really tasteless and bland. It is what it is, a weak Lager for drinking in the sun.

500 ml. can. Thanks Nikos! Pours a pale golden yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is corn and malt. Very thin. Drinkable.

Holmen2 (2560) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD 01.11.15. Clear pale straw colour. Diminishing off-white head. Moderate aroma of pale malt, and unfresh fruits. Some bitterness. A standard eurolager. Not particularly good.

Holmen1 (4339) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Flaske (takk til Pascal L!), delt med Ovesen: klar lys gylden med kort hvitt skum. Halvvissen aroma, daff smak av malt og kokte grønnsaker. OK karbonering, så den er nok lettdrikkelig i skyggen av pyramidene.

Benzai (12156) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle [thanks to my former neighbour Ad for bringing this from holiday] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, a decent bitterness. Not much more to tell but I quite like it actually. Easy drinkable and nicely bitter. Better than some of those sweetish grainy pale lagers you often find.

Bottle @ benzai. Clear golden with a medium sized white head that doesn’t last long. Smells malts, grains, slightly cardboard. Tastes malts, grains, maybe corn or rice. Screw the haters, beers like this shouldn’t score below a 2.5. Thin to medium body, nice crisp carbo.
