HoppityHop (171) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2014
Not bad for what it is. No aroma or hop presence. Slightly metallic and malty, with medium carbonation. Slick going down, which is odd for a pale lager. Wouldn’t go out of my way for this, but I’d take over many other macros.

Strangebrewer (859) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
can. 5%. Poured clear liquid gold with a large white head. Grainy hay aroma. Mouthfeel is carbonated, light and slightly dry. Kinda plain grainy-macro start but has a nice bready malt flavour with a honey sweetness.

Jimthechap (1652) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 3, 2014
Pale gold with a voluminous head and plenty of sparkle. Appears to be typical Eurolager. Aromas of cold metal, flour and grainy malt. Not terribly much flavour and reflective of the aromas. Not any reason to remember this beer. No faults, just unmemorable.

Motobashi (68) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
500ml can. A variation of the beer on file. This is 5% alcohol and the can is yellow and silver. The bar code points to this entry though. Scent of sweet hay. A little hazy and golden with light carbonation and a thin white head with some lacing. Slight sweet on the tongue and just lightly bitter. A slightly slick texture. Refreshing. Enjoyable.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Dorée, mais plus foncée que la plupart des pale lagers sur le marché, elle évoque en nez, d’abord des céréales blondes puis des sucres. Au goût, elle est un peu aqueuse, comme presque toutes les concoctions de cette catégorie, et souffre aussi un peu de ce surplus de sucre si souvent présent en grandes quantités dans les blondes commerciales. Mais si on lui donne une chance, on se rend compte qu’elle fait partie des meilleures de ce genre, et qu’un petit dry hop l’aurait possiblement rendu extraordinaire parmi ses pairs.

andrepintado (1426) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - DEC 11, 2013
50cl can from el corte ingles, lisbon. Gold color with thin white head. Body is medium. Taste is light bitter and sweet. Aroma is actually not as simplistic as usual, it’s light fruited. It’s not awesome but it’s not bad.

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Poured up into the Tennent’s glass I found in Value Village five years ago, and has been waiting for this chance ever since. Aroma is an unpleasant corn smell, almost apple juice-like. Beer is super fizzy, with a big white head that looks exactly like soap bubbles. Taste is not good, but I’m going to go eat pretzels, so maybe it won’t matter.

This one brings memories. Back in a day, in Scotland...A yong man in Edinburgh desperately wanting to try ’real british beer’ (The ALE!), and finding this instead. Pours generic eurolager yellow, with a generic prominent head. Aroma: Wheat, corn, and whatever chemical nonsense they add to almost every eurolager (normalized hop extract?) that gives me nasty headaches. Taste: Wheat, fizzy water, and some taste enhancer which is probably supposed to play the part of hops. Bad just, bad. Even worse than many Russian made lagers, which is an achievement of sorts.

Carbonation lighter than usual. There’s a metallic tang (possibly from the can?) that I actually kind of like. Ditto the alcohol taste. It’s on the bland side but there’s a carefree quality to it.

Spab (2390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden yellow with average-sized white head. Aroma is mellow grains, light grass and hints of corn. Flavour is light bready grains, gentle grassiness and definite corn presence. Light-medium body. Classic LCBO option - totally forgettable Euro lager.
