krisfleet (130) - Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Not nearly as good as the tennents scotch ale. This reminds me too much of a cheap domestic american standard. Flavor is skunky, and aftertaste resembles watery bud light. Not only was I unimpressed, I was disgusted at this speciman.

Smells awful taste is not much better, tastes very cheap, like a cup of tea that hasn’t been brewed long enough

hauxe (173) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2016
Rated from old notes. Harshly flat at the beginning. Somewhat bitter. No aroma that is good. Oh, where do we go from here? Faint hint of malts Feels like more alcohol is here than actually rated. Less than mediocre.

maxwelldeux (4269) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Draught from Nicholsons. Pours a clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has lots of corn elements to it with a bit of grains. Taste is slightly sweet and seems to be a bit stale. Falls into the crappy pale lager category like so many others. Bleh.

Dunc1981 (36) - - OCT 10, 2015
Crisp clear lager with a slight malty aroma/taste. The sort of lager that would be easy to sink a few of on a night out, but very generic tasting in general. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jann3 (235) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Pours pale yellow with a smallish head. Very mild aroma with some malty sweetness. Taste is mild and sweetish too with a very faint crispy notes. Short finish and somehow watery mouthfeel. Just another bulk lager. Boring and tasteless but drinkable anyway. (500 ml can)

Golden with small white head. Sweet corn aroma. Short, floral and cardboard finish. Overall: bland and bad

Vestlake (254) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Can pour. Aroma is standard euro lager. Taste starts out as euro lager as well but it has a bad aftertaste. There are much better out there.

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2015
50cl can for Baltics. Charger Lager its called. With a white horse and all... Pours straw pale with frothy head. Aroma of cardboard, weak malts and some faint hops. Thian and crisp. Very easy drink, and well balanced. No aftertaste at all, feels like you drink water. Smooth and simple. Mixed feelings about this one - I like a well balanced simplicity but I do not like the extremely cheep lager looks and aroma.

Keg @ Royal Hotel, Laurencekirk. Fizzy gold pour with a white head. Nose is pretty nonexistent. Just a touch skunky. Some bread. Taste is fairly neutral. Fizzy honey and bread. Light body, pretty drinkable. Not great.
