Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Moderate sized bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Slightly skunky aroma with some corn pops and vanilla. Color is golden brown. ZIppy in the mouth with some cereal grains and cron bread. Mouthfeel a bit on the pasty side.

Can, bought in Zakopane. Yellow color with a small head. Aroma is on ther beginning floral then light hoppy. Taste is little bit grassy with light bitter finish. Boring beer.

probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2010
500 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear, bright golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Cereal/grain, light, vague fruitiness and sweetness, a touch dusty/musty, very light peppery, leafy hops, slight esters. Palate: Medium body and carbonation, a touch of Pils smoothness. Flav.: Pretty much like the nose, a bit more dusty/musty, the esters are gone, the muted hops is still there; dry with a hint of bitterness and a fairly pleasant fruity biscuit malt finish and still.

Nothing to write home about. Not that they would care anyway...

Frank (4010) - 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 (4445) - 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 (4280) - 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 (6719) - 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.
