ALLOVATE (2895) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2007
It pours the pale end of gold, but so bright and so translucent it sparkles in the lights. A flurry of bubbles raise up furiously and hold well a loose fluffy, audible crescendo of white that manages a good deal of lace-work. Clean, grassy, dried-up leaves and dried herbs on the nose like chives, tarragon and thyme, not much else. Inside the mouth it is a gritty, dry mix of pale malts, rather dusty, leaning on pasty but clear enough in flavour to be tasty - this is all upfront as the tail has something different in mind. The liquor mineral-like, and salty. A little zingy, zippy, I don’t know what from, the finish is the same, a little tangy, sour malt and hops down south. Not much length bar the dusty malt flavours, it could easily be sessionable. Palate remains reasonably clean throughout, it does go down with ease as it is easy on the palate. The herbal mix in the aroma grows as the beer empties, coriander a new addition - it does some herbal soup. I can’t say this was bad at all, goes down unhindered. I could easily get drunk off it a bonus. A Russian beer, at the northern end.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2009
A typcial mass produced brew. This is more flavorful brew than your typical mass produced brew. The flavor is slightly tart and grainy. Otherwise, it is not too bad.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2004
Clean pasteurized golden lager (bottle). From the start it is malty (not much) and tart, then it becomes more hoppy with shade of graininess. Easy drinking.

0,5L special bottle. Low aroma of hops and malt. Carbonated, flavor is more malty than hoppy. Aftertaste is short with some hoppy tones.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
Beer pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of straw and grains. Taste of mild hops, light malt, caramel, sugar and leaves. Watery and thin finish. Average and boring.

Simple und nicht annähernd inspirierendes Piwo ohne große Punkte. Recht trinkbar, aber im Grunde aromen- und ideen los. Vielleicht etwas Getreide und Malz - das war es dann auch schon.

pale yellow with one finger of fluffy white head. smells decent for a beer that only cost $1.50 for a 500ml bottle. nose of piney hops and some malt presence too. flavor is better than expected also. light malt sweetness with some cereal grains. finishes with a taste of blood or iron. very watery texture. overall I can’t complain about it due to the cost/quality ratio and it is much better than its "Lager" dubbed cousin.

HenrikSoegaard (13147) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Pale yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short but nice light bitter finish. Watery palate. Actually a well-balanced nice pale lager.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2008
Had this with the Philly chapter of the Devonshire Knights. Pour similar to the regular Lager, pale yellow, small head kind of fizzy. Mix of corn and grains with hops thrown in. Dry finish with a little bitterness. Ok but not a drinker for me.
