Pours urine yellow with a splotchy, ugly head. The aroma was lemongrassy and hopcity, with pale malts present also. The flavor wasnít bad, with a crisp hopc and citric presence coupled with a honey malt sensation. Iíd drink this as a lawnmower beer.

Fin (7244) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Delií, Cowley Road, Oxford Poured golden with a largeish white head. Tasted smooth, creamy, some vanilla, tastes quite light and sweet. A much better beer than I expected and the perfect accompniment to my curry.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a towering cap of loose white head. Aroma picked up a fair dose of bready character with light spices, lemon, and nice floral notes. Flavor found sweet breadiness at the core with pleasant and mild floral bitterness eminating outward... some floral and very dry grassy notes round out the finish.. certainly solid for the style. Light-bodied but thick on flavor across the middle.. dry lemony finish. Thought this was tasty and every bit worth the $0.99 I paid for it!

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with tons of carbonations bubbles and a large white, but not tightly-foamed head. The head has decent retention actually and leaves some decent lacing. The smell is ultra-mellow with mostly bready malt and a pinch of grassy, cirtusy hops. The taste is decently balanced for a pils, there is an overlying bitterness over the bready malt. The flavor seems to lean a bit towards the euro pale lager, but this is still a good light lager. THis brewery does much better for sure, but this isnít bad.

Bottle. Golden beer with a whitish head. Light "generic lager" aroma. Sweet malt/grain flavor with some underlying earthy/floral hops.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2006
Slightly hazy, light yellow gold, average foamy head leaving some nice lace. Fresh aromas of lemon and hay. Slightly sweet palate of pale malt with a touch of grassy hops. So much better than North Americaís typical pale lagers.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle: Light straw in color, very pale and clear in fact, thin white head, light carbonation. † Straw and grass on the nose, slight malt flavor but mainly grassy on the tongue. † Semi-sweet, not half bad for a Pale Lager. † Moderate body and mouthfeel. † Fairly clean finish, simple, remains mainly grassy. † Not too shabby. † Thanks mattbob for sharing!

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Hoa Xuan Vietnam-Indian Restaurant, Tampere.
Pours a clear golden colour with loads of large bubbles and a large white head. Aroma of sweetish malts, flowers and grass. Flavour of sweetish malts, grassy hops, rice and weak spiciness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light sweet finish with some bitterness. Goes very well with Vietnamese food.

This is "brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water?" Well, perhaps the corny aroma that Iím smelling is the "Indian character" that they speak of. Whatever. Itís a very pale yellow drink, soft in the mouth, that delivers a weak, sweet malt taste and finishes on a watery note. Iím still waiting for the hops that are mentioned. At least itís too mild on every front to get offensive.
