yespr (31069) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
From tap at Guildfort Arms. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Classic light cornish and mild hoppy aroma. Flavour is cornish and slight acidic to bitter. Bitter and mild spiced hoppy finish.simple and somewhat related to the brew called international pale lager. A bit sad.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
A yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet malty, and so is the flavor, though the flavor also contains notes of hops. An average lager.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) 5% ABV. Nice fully golden beer with an even and decent head. (But the colour is a bit of cheating, since this is added artificial colouring, yuck!) Lightly sweetish and malty but completely lacking flavour. Very close to a Bud or Coors. 020204

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2007
Canned (Thanks GarethYoung!). Pale golden colour with small white bubbly head. Aroma is malts and cowshit (I cheat you not!, the totally weird sweetness reminds of cs...). Flavour is sweet malts along with grassy hops, especially in the finish the hops becomes present.

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2001
Light, empty lager. With all those other ales, like skullsplitter and jacobite, not to mention all those whiskies, why would you drink this?

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2003
(Draught) Light golden in color. Below average lager. Not the best lager in Scotland as it's commercial description implies.

33cl bottle. Small white head atop crystal clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, skunk/grass. Taste is medium sweet, cereal, light grass, corn. Light body. The smell was bad, but the taste is actually ok.
