faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 29, 2008

DocLock (10260) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with white head and aromas of slight hopcit, some honey and pale malts. Tastes bready malty, with some caro syrup and subdued hopcitrus. Theres nothing particularly wrong with this one, but nothing that really stands out either. Not too shabby.

jercraigs (10126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Crisp pale yellow, respectable white head and some half decent lacing. Verys light bit of grassy/grainy hops in very muted aroma. Palate and flavour palate are very light, with just a slight bitterness. Boring but inoffensive and fairly quaffable.

Fin (10039) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2006
Bottle Riga Nov 2004, and at Riga airport on draught. This was actually called Zelta Gold it lived up to the colour description, bit lightweight some malt but dry finish nothing to write home about.

DuffMan (9906) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Can. Standard clear yellow lager with an average unimpressive white head. Aroma is sweet corny grossness, like a malt likra without the petroleum essence lingering in the background. The palate is medium bodied, and way way too sweet without any bittering hops to dry things out. Plastic note in the finish. Blech.

j12601 (9890) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Can from a trip to Toronto a couple months back. Pours a clear light straw yellow with a large white head. Skunky, pond scum, a bit of sweetness and old musty cardboard. Medium bodied, very sweet grain flavor. Tastes slightly better than it smells, but not much. Finishes up sweet and grainy. Not so good.

(Bottle at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2008)
On June 12, 2008
Clear straw color, small white head. Sweet, lime and vegetable scent. Sweet but dry taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2007
More country whoring. 500ml bottle, clear bright yellow with white head, typical performance, builds a bit then settles quickly. Nose is typical, taste is typical, its a little bit of a malt liquor fuesal smell and taste, lightly sweet and moderately sharp or bitter. I mean cmon its really the same as almost every other international generic lager.

ManVsBeer (9177) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from off-license opposite Wakefield Westgate station. Pale golden with a very small head. Ordinary European lager in many respects but its redeeming feature is its silky smooth texture.
