Bottle. This is a pretty standard pale lager. Not bad but not particularly special. A mild malt taste with some carbonation and not much bitterness.

Benzai (13641) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle @ home shared by Thompson. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, rice, lightly grains, lightly bitter in the distance. Low body, low carbonation. Meh.

anstei (1066) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Summer Santa Benzai. Sugary grainy sweet with almost no hops or bitterness. Surprisingly not horrible. But really not much more than a country tick either.

SinH4 (2546) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle, thanks Benzai via anstei. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is dusty, sweet grains and corn. Taste is sweet, corny, cereals, rice. Medium carbonation. Not horrible.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
33cl stubbi, forget the source. The sweet yet dry corniness prevails, sulphurs and metallics remain manageable. Less offish than a few European competitors in the same league. Exotic amnesiac.

minutemat (4148) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
320ml bottle, shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Erzengel for this! Pours a misty gold, thin white head. Aroma is grains, pale malt. Taste continues with a musty grainy character. Lightly sweet. Rather bland.

BlackHaddock (6220) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
320ml bottle, shared with minutemat on 5th Aug 2016. Golden pour with a white topping. Semi-sweet Pils/Lager with nothing to make it stand out from the thousands of similar beers all over the world. Refreshing and thirst quenching but not very inspiring or interesting. Surprised I had never rated it before, cheers Mat for bringing it to my place for our little tasting session.

mcberko (14059) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
320mL bottle, courtesy of BuckeyeBoy (thanks man), pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out cheap corn and straw. Flavour is exactly the same: cheap corn and straw with a slightly stale quality. What you’d expect from a Filipino piss lager. Well, it’s a country tick.

beastiefan2k (3509) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Gifted from BuckeyeBoy. 320mL capped bottle poured into hotel glasses. Standard crappy equator lager. Corny and sweet with macro chemically flavors. No hops to speak of. Piss pale yellow color.

Karstenborg (754) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2016
Clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is grain, citrus and corn. Taste is metallic, corn and lime.
