superspak (3115) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2015
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 3/31/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Pretty clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium carbonation and light-medium bady; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

From bottle - actually like it - more of a rounder mouthfeel than Tennents Lager and perfectly chuggable

Strangebrewer (949) - 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.

johnnnniee (2684) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2015
Can from Bertís Pours a bright almost neon golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Grainy crackery pilsner malt with a hint of skunk and just a touch of spicy hop. The flavor adds a honey like sweetness and just a touch of sulfur. Decent enough lager, cool that its in a big can, but unremarkable.

heemer77 (5152) - 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.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Light Yellow, Good Head, Some Lacing. Sweet Aroma. Bubbly and Sweet are the characteristics that separate it from the rest of lagers. Average Body and Refreshing. Pretty Decent.

Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a soda-like white head that dissipated quickly. Grain, floral, perfume. Light crisp body. Sparkling water like finish. Easy to drink

wlajwl (4305) - 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.

pintbypint (2781) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2013
500ml can. 5% abv on the label. Clear gold pour. White head with surprisingly nice clingy foam. Nose has grains and straw. Taste has some sweetness at the start, grain and bread notes and some light grass at the end. Light body, well carbonated. Overall, not a bad macro pale lager, drinkable and refreshing with no real off flavours.

Bork (393) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Quality pale lager with a nice balance between malt and hops, good body and clean, refreshing finish. One of the better brews of its kind.
