rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow beer with a small head. Fruity aroma, oranges, grapes, bready, some grass. Fruity flavor, hoppy, oranges, some bread. Probably drinkable on a hot summer day.

edsspoon (307) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Pours pale golden with a frothy white head, which slowly disappears. Aroma of lime and orange with some yeasty malt and basement aroma. Taste of some orange, bready malt, slight bitterness and fairly sweet. It’s kind of strange tasting.

Emeister84 (862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Aromas of honeyed and lightly caramelized malts, and grassy hops. Clear, pale gold with a mostly fading white head. Lightly sweet, some creaminess. Light bodied, cleansing, refreshing carbonation, finishes clean with some lingering, subtle malty notes.

MunBro (230) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Aroma of straw, corn, hay etc. Pours a nice golden color which is pretty much the best thing about this beer. Taste is incredibly one noted - corn. Some minor lemon notes mostly as an aftertaste. I?m assuming this would be great to quench your thirst in East Africa where it?s +50° and you need to run away from lions; however I live in Northern Canada where the coldest day this winter was -59°. We need our beer a little stronger, darker, and more robust up here so we can fight off polar bears and go ice fishing with our bare hands.

goochflies (41) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Gave a 5 on appearance cause it looks so beautiful after a long day in Juba... Standard lager. Quenches the thirst and gives you a smile. Yards better than a Hieni....

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 14, 2014
Can. Yellow with white head. Aroma of yeast, grain and limes. Flavour is sweet with notes of bread and honey. Finishes with a light bitterness. While the beer itself is below average, the design of the can is one of my all time favourites. I’ve never given extra points for bottle or can designs, but this gets an extra 0.1 for looking awesome.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from the Hogs Back Brewery Shop. Pours golden with a quickly fading white head. Not a lot to report. This is a typically bland pale lager. There’s a little amlt flavour and a hint of sweetness. A least it’s not over carbonated.

tmongoose (1190) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2014
pint bottle shared. poured a bright light yellow color with white fluffy head. plenty of carbonation. aroma sweet malt and lots of corn. one of the group said it smelled like flat grape soda. but the corn overpowers everything. the flavor is sweet malt and corn. mild flavor and well you know...corn. pale lager yes it is but that’s about all its worth.

conway (1310) - - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are super heavy on corn backed up by some random fruity notes. Typical pale lager mouthfeel. Wouldn't be a terrible entry for the style if it wasn't so heavy handed on the corn.

Old note from 2009 or 2010, gift from friend. Clear pale yellow golden, small foamy white head, disappears quickly, some lacing; sweet corn, grass, bit yeasty, citrus; light sweet, slightly bitter, hint of sourness; light body, watery texture, soft carbonation; mild dry bitter aftertaste.
