loku (48) - Villa Nueva, GUATEMALA - FEB 29, 2016
• Aroma (9/10): Miel, caramelos, salsa de soya y leves toques citricos. Residuo ahumado Un aroma muy agradable sin ser exagerado en su potencia. • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escasa, blanca de moderada duración dejando una nata que cubre la superficie. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Amarillo dorado. Presencia de gordas burbujas. Sin partículas visibles • Sabor 7/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: Inicio ligeramente amargo. o Final: Ligera amargura que se disuelve en un dulzor ligero que se incrementa en los diantes. Como de ralladuras de piel de naranja. Sorprendentemente, hay abundantes umamis en los dientes. El final es prolongado. • Paladar 4/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo robusto, cremoso, moderadamente burbujeante. Final ligeramente amarga y de corta duración. Resumen 17/20: Un Sabor muy balanceado, sin ser complejo pero tampoco simple. Una cerveza no tan refrescante pero si digna de saborearse. Los toques dulces están bien atinados sin llegar a empalagar. Buena chela.

kwik-lime (1667) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Can from Tesco. Fairly light pour, head gone before too long. Hint of grain and rice in the background but some pleasant sweetness and easy drinking enough. Decent pale lager.

bpar73 (938) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2016
On tap at a Japanese restaurant. Yellow pour with a white head. Light malt, corn and biscuit in the taste and aroma. Pretty run-of-the-mill pale lager

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing pretty quickly. Smells mildly skunky with soft notes of biscuit and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, but blander, with a fairly crisp medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Unmemorable, but good for washing down a big Japanese dinner.

josanguapo (1041) - SPAIN - FEB 17, 2016
From Carrefour San Juan. In Ikea?s pint glass. 66 cl can. 4.55?. Watching Sons of Anarcharchy 7x01-02. Smooth, watery, not bad tasting but tiresome. Its overpriced around 400%.

MetalNHopHead (1329) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Not an altogether bad companion to inexpensive sushi. It smells and tastes like cereal grains. Not too skunky and just a bit metallic.

Grumbo (1216) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle from Chinatown, London. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is of malt, grass and hop. Medium sweet, minimal bitterness. Quite light body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Sticky sweet finish.

ryanhunter_4 (217) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
600 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy yellow with a good white head. Smells like grass, tastes quite sweet with a bit of grass flavor. I’ve had this a bunch of times but don’t recall it being this sweet. It’s okay but nothing special.
