DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Can from Intermarche, Lagoa, Algarve. Artisanal Highland product, yes? Gold with a fast diminishing scummy tuft of foam. Aroma of envelope and refuse. Flavour has appreciable bitterness besides the corn-flavoured native offerings; soap, lemon hints, icing sugar, poison death. Olive oil soap and conifer traces. Dead in seconds in the sun. Sits very comfortably amongst the borderline drinkable/undinkable pale lagers of Portugal.

DrSilverworm (6955) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Most of a 500ml can. ABV listed as 5%. Clear yellow color, thin white head. Bit of lace. Smooth carbonation, dry texture. Basic (but clean and inoffensive) lager taste - white bread, basically. Not much taste, just a moderate sweetness, and light savory and salt. A pretty solid lager, made like a lager should be. Drinkable and refreshing, good for a 100F day. I wouldnít mind revisiting this, and itís drinkable enough to justify a whole 0.5L

TheBeerGod (5337) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Can - 500mL. Listed at 5% ABV. Gold pour with a short white head. Sweet nose with corn, cereal and flavored seltzer water. Taste is much better with soft sweet malt notes, faint hops, light corn and cereal grains. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more cereal, sweet malt, light corn and faint hops. Not terrible.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Can. A bright white head tops a medium gold colored body. This has a grainy and meaty nose with some pear hints. This tastes fairly dry like hay with some raw grain. There is also some bread crust. Actually this is interesting with just enough going on to keep it drinkable. Pleasant and clean.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
500mL can, bottom marked 30 SEP 14, mine at 5% abv. Nose sweet and vibrantly corny, pours rich clear golden with a sudsy off-white head. Watery taste semi-dry at first (but has something of a sweet residual) with corn and oily, tumbling malt; touch of dust and spice, citric and noble hops on the edges, mostly clean and manages to strike a nice middle. Alcohol well-integrated but what is detectable is a bit harsh. Still, I like it well enough for its aspirations.

wlajwl (4054) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Aroma is sweetish/grainy malts, beery and a hint of a chemical/off element. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, fruit/cider and a mildly tart finish.

jkwalking05 (3923) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at Finniganís in Universal Studios Florida. Golden with a decent white head. Aroma is of malt syrup, grain and corn. Taste is of grain, light corn and a hint of apples.

16 oz. can. My beer guy joked that they had this back in stock. But, tonight, I wanted to be 20 years old and in Scotland again. My study abroad experience in Scotland was a study in beer. I was young, on a budget, and needed to get drunk. It pours a pale yellow. Thick white styrofoam head. Tennentís is an institution in Scotland. But anything properly Scottish was an institution. They had a promotion in October that would include a Halloween DVD with every 4 pack of tall boys sold. Suffice it to say: I acquired a few of those DVDs. The problem being my computer would only play those region DVDs a certain number of times. I remember the Uni shoppe up on the cobble stone hill with all our alcoholic goodies and dirty magazines. Aroma of corn, mild alcohol, some hay. Oh, the nights out in bars inside renovated 14th century churches. Tennentís was on tap. Ironically, Bud was often a premium beer in some of the places Iíd go. Other places had casks of beers I ignorantly drank down. If I knew the names of those beers now Iíd probably be amazed and ashamed of how little I knew then. Flavor: we remember things so much better than they actually were, donít we?

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 440ml can from Tesco. Rich golden colour, big foamy head. Corn resin malt aroma. Biscuit corn flavour. Quite smooth for a lager.
