Purchased at StateLine liquors in Maryland. I really don’t have a lot to say about this beer except that it is predominantly average at best. The aroma reminded me of straw or a cornfield. In an attempt to generate a powerful head I tried to pour with this intention, yet there was a minimal head that disappated in seconds. No lacing was visible. The color was a cloudy gold hue with no clarity. The taste was similar to a japanese or indian beer with a slight tart sweetness. It was not a bad beer, but I was hoping for a good beer, which is wasn’t either. I could see this beer being a nice acqaintance with a spicy asian or indian dish.

A clear gold brew with good head of foam and retention. Malty nose with some balancing spicy hop bitterness. Sweetish malt followed by some grain and spicy crisp bitterness from the hops. I especially love the finish; maybe the best part of this session. Medium body and carbonation. A nice Pilsner of the German kind brewed in Belgium.

Bottle: What can one say?? As if the market for lame, golden lagers wasn’t cornered here’s another. There’s nothing new; clear pale gold with a big flffy white head. Slightly spicy metalic corn aroma, but maybe I’m just imagining things because there really isn’t much in this department. Predictably the flavour is similar - weak, decocted malt flavours with a touch of spice in the background. Yawn... Thankfully the Indian food I had ordered arrived not long after I started this. The Aloo Chop was particularly excellent. mmm :-)

The aroma was spicy Saaz hops when first poured. As the beer warmed the aroma became lightly tart with some corn (DMS) and lasting low spicy hops and an earthy presence. The beer poured hazy pale golden with nearly no head at all. The flavor was lightly tart with some caramel and a bit of spicy hops. The flavor was somewhat earthy and had a light corn presence. The body was medium and the carbonation was fairly low. Nothing outstanding about this one, just a boring beer. 500 ml bottle.

Pours pale golden and clear. Aroma is somehow disgusting. Taste is mild, grassy and boring.

Tasted alongside some other pale lagers this was distinctly in the bottom percentile. Drab ordinary lager. However, having an entire crate of this stuff to plough through, I have noticed another peculiarity. If I drink one of these, I don’t sleep well. Any other beer & I sleep soundly, but there’s something in this one which keeps me from sleep. Not in a nice way.

Alarmingly clear yellow color that.. oh crap, it is a pale lager. Bitter aroma a little skunky. No hops, but the rice is noticible. If I had read pale lager on the label, I wouldn’t have bought it.
