GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
This was passable for a pale lager, and I think the fact it was saved by the dark bottle really helped keep the skunk at bay. A dull yellow pour, crystal clear with a 1/2" white head. An aroma of bready yeast, light earth and creamed corn. Flavor is lightly sweet malts, with a decent grassy bitterness showing up. Drinkable.

kwik-lime (1517) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2009
Big frothy head, the appearance was the best thing about this bland and generic lager. Perfectly drinkable but uninspiring, a bit watery with a vague sweetness buried in there somewhere.

Moderate malty aroma. Large, frothy, white head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light yellow body. Light bitter flavor. Light to medium palate.

Bov (10614) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2009
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - clear golden colour with a chaotic and elusive foam made of big bubbles; discrete aroma of dust and plastic; thin-bodied, sweet and watery; short aftertaste of shy hops - very weak

rosenbergh (8693) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2009
500 ml can. From Slovenia (H). I liked this lager. More malty and hoppy aroma and flavour than average pale lager. Aroma is quite weak though. Enjoyable and highly drinkable brew. When in Slovenia this would be my choice.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2008
Golden colour with minimal head. Aroma of pale malt and some bitterness in the hops. An OK beer but lacking the crisp, clean finish of a true lager.
