BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Green 33cl bottle, best before 2nd July 2009, drank on a cold and wet evening in March 2009. Poured into a Veltins Pilsner stemmed tulip shaped glass. Ever wished you had never bothered buying a beer? Looked OK, lager/pilsner golden yellow, with a white bubbly head. Pale golden yellow to be more correct and with a head that soon turned into a wisp and collar. There is a strange smell cheap supermarket pilsner/lagers have, this had it. Maize is used in the brew (according to the rear label), that will account for the lightness of colour and weakness of aroma and taste I suppose. I think some RB/BA’s would call this a ’lawn-mower’ beer or something simular. I’ve never wanted to go to Beriut and this beer hasn’t changed my mind. This is a bad, bad beer and unless you are ’drinking around the world’ don’t bother trying it.

Clear golden. Medium white head. Ok maltiness with light sweetness. Pretty stale.

DutchDrebus (6031) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2012
Very pale yellow colour with a lasting, strong, decent size white head. Smells malts and grains, fresh and like a decent pilsener. Tastes quite watery, some iron, malty. Bit thin bodied, okay carbo. Sub-par pilsener.

What can you say about this... Other than its your typical international macro lager. Skunky, metallic aroma and flavor. At least I got my Lebanon rating.

Bottle. Smells like cheap American beer. Taste pretty bad too. Reminds me of a Heineken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another Heineken product? Can’t you see the propaganda poster? A Dutch octopus ensnaring the world with eight green bottle beers in his tentacle hands. This one smells skunky, grainy and grassy. It’s light amber and has a corny overly sweet flavor and not much in the way of hop contrast. Kind of flat too. It might as well be Heineken. On the other hand, without beer giants nobody over here would ever get a beer from Lebanon.

Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2012
Clear bright yellow, thin white head. Mild skunky malt aroma. Sweet bready skunky malt taste. Low hopped, average carbonation, light bodied. Sweet oily finish. Poor. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

JaBier (8027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend at the Hopsnobbery Collective’s first (and last) Crappy Beer Tasting on 2/29/12. Clear yellow/gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of slight skunk, malt and some crisp hop. Malty and semi-sweet flavor with a crisp finish. Not outstanding, but certainly not worthy of the title of worst beer ever.

1.9
r464 (2361) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Light and perhaps a bit skunky. Faintly malty with a hint of sourness and a rather watery overall taste and finish. Certainly not a standout.

2.1
Pershing (565) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Pale fizzy yellow with a small fading white head. Grainy malt aroma with a clean dry taste on the palate. Not much to this beer. Just your average boring Pilsner. Nice refreshing finish.
