Bricks (916) - Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Aroma and appearance are on par with macro swill. The palate is a little better than I expected, but the aftertaste was quite dry and grassy. Not preferable for me.

Headbanger (3748) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2016
22oz can 5/5/16 (Jewel-Osco Clearance Rack)-40° in Mug-Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweetness, corn and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad as I was expecting worse.

Poured from the bottle. A rather malty smelling and tasting beer. Not good, not bad, mediocre beer.

Can, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a pale golden color, perfectly clear with lots of little bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass, it’s got a very well retained and attractive fluffy white head.

The aroma is a little tinny and mostly sweet & doughy with a little bit of herbal character to it.

The flavor is fine, I mean it tastes like a above average industrial lager. It’s got a nice bit of herbal bitterness and a pretty defined rice flavor, it’s a touch sweet... but not horribly so, it’s also got a mild fruitiness to it. Honestly the hop character here really carries this beer, it’s pleasant and bitter and just mutes some of the less desirable flavors a touch.

PintjeFritz (74) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 17, 2016
A nice big can without information about the hops and malts. A golden clear beer without character with a nice white head, the body is thin, light bitter, no smell, no finish, (I have a 0.65l can with batch 0127 and best-before date 16OCT16.)

Morboso (143) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2016
Pleasant surprise, if I was gonna drink a lager this would be a perfect choice. From a large can, perfect carbonation and head, a bit of bitterness. Just nice.
