Frank (3976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2010
Pale golden w/ a foamy and long lasting head of evenly sized medium bubbles. Very nice grassy hop and cut hay nose. Easy-drinking w/ just a slight touch of malt sweetness and a subtle lemon note. Soft and light w/ gently effervescent carbonation. Only flaw is just a small lack of bitterness which makes it finish a bit watery. I can tell my bottle of this was fresh and its quite good, just a touch more hops and its world class. If you are a lager fan, it might be worth seeking out a venue where they move through this stuff quickly. Or just get lucky like I did.

Bullit (4415) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 5, 2010
500ml can from The Cave. Golden colour, white head. Aroma is sweet malty, bit metallic. Flavour is sweet malty and slightly dry. Ok lager.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours a little darker than most american lagers. Aromas of corn, hops, and you know the rest. Flavor is a little more pronounced in this lager, a little more bitter.

Vaiz (4248) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2010
Can at home. Clear bright orange pour, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of old beer and cheap malts together with some metallic chemical warfare. Flavor is quite bitter with some sweetness coming along, very watery and a bit cheap. Quite bad.

Sigmund (6647) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2010
500 ml can, thanks to my son Steinar (bought in Krakow). ABV is 6.0%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, big to moderate white head. Strong sweetish aroma, notes of "banana" candy, hints of flowers and new-mown grass. Moderate carbonation in the glass. Medium sweet flavour of malt sugar and candy, decent hops in the finish. Not a beer I’d buy again, but drinkable.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2010
Can. Golden pour, almost no head. Faint malt and hops aroma, very faint. Watery pilsener flavour, not really bitter, not really anything. Well, some faint bitterness from hops in the aftertaste. Still, just another boring lager/pilsener.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
Can. Medium amber with lasting head. Grainy dry-malt aroma with a hint of alcohol. Cheap grainy fusal flavour.

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2009
bought at duty Free Shop in the Warsaw Airport. Less than 1Euro/0.5L. Pale yellow color with a thin foam, aroma is malty and sweet, flavor is sweet as well. Mouthfeel is refreshing only, nothing else. Regular beer, I wish to have some beers like that with this price and volume for day-to-day drinking.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle in a brown paperbag yup visiting a friend at college. Heinekin skunky grain corn aroma. Soft sweet hints sugar grain concentrate fruit extract light berries and a light earth bitter tone. Simple session six percent score! I mean not bad for next to miller.

It’s a beer. Very sugary and watery. Not a whole lot going on in this. Some basic adjunct, malt flavors. Not really all that good.
