Tap @ Sister Pub. Vergognosa come la sua sorella Extra , almeno non avendo l’alcool a coprire ogni tipo di sapore risulta più gradevole alla beva. Non ha praticamente sapori se non quello del luppolo industriale. Filtrata e pastorizzata. sembra di bere acqua con additivo al gusto birra.

Refreshing and quite typical pale lager. Severely overpriced for the quality.

On tap @ the Findlay Hotel, Fraserburgh. Pours golden with steady bubbles and some head. The nose has honey malt and the hops come through as a grassy or metallic note at the end. The taste has caramel and the metallic note is confirmed. The palate is spoilt somewhat by the metallic finish as it’s not bad up to that point. Overall, just about drinkable.

Cooked veggies, loads of corn, sweet almost cloying. I allowed it to warm a bit and it became toally undrinkable. A passable lawnmower college chug if ice cold, otherwise, pass!

JesseM (1145) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
500mL lykkbo can. Pours nice bright gold with a huge white head that retains itself, unnaturally. Aroma is kind of corny and not very good, weird dustiness. No hops. Flavour is much better, decent grainy pils malts, mild bitterness that hints of hop extract. Mild carbonation which I love. Over-all very sweet but not cloyingly. Pretty decent lager actually, wouldn’t expect that from Scotland but hey whatever it’s cool man.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
No, it’s a three, probably a three-and-a-half, but ratebeer ain’t dun gun do halfzies so it’s goin’ down to three - decent head and an okay clear gold body. Aroma is weak cardboard and nothing else, except perhaps some chili? Flavour is boot leather and malt mixed with a crunchy nutty note. Watery finish. This stuff is just all over the place and has failed to make a positive impression.

500ml can from the lcbo. golden with alasting white head. solid pale lager. clean and more or less flavourless.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Draft at Holiday Inn Express. Poured a clear gold with small white head and minimal lacing. Nose of light malts and floral hops. Light body. Flavor is light malts but not a lot of flavor here. Not much finish. Tastes like a macro lager.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 29, 2008
Dolcissima lager della Tennent’s che mi accorgevo oggi di non aver mai provato; la differenza con la Tennent’s Lager è quasi impercettibile, forse questa è ancora più stucchevole e insulsa. Vabeh poco male, l’ho accompagnata ad un grande cheeseburger al Britannia, a pranzo.

zombywoof (447) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Gold and clear-brief head and minimal lacing. Aroma more prominent than the actual taste: floral hops and grainey malt. Grainey flavor with a bit of a biscuity quality. Thin body and sticky finish. Way overpriced for the quality you get. If I want a good pale lager, I’ll go with Leinenkugel’s Original.
