heemer77 (5340) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Can. Deep gold brew with a fluffy white head. The nose is doughy and earthy with some raw potato. There is also a hint of grain based booze, like vodka. The taste is like ketchup was placed on some raw potatoes. The finish is a little sharp with some bell pepper and a little bit of sweet potato. Highly carbonated and sweet.

oh6gdx (26261) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottled. Pale orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is herbs, some grass and mild bready and earthy notes. Flavour is rather similar in a nice balance.

Radek Kliber (7274) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Can 440 ml
Aroma: fairly fruity aroma for lager. Sweet berry notes with malty behind. 6-
Appearance: golden brew with medium plus sized white top.
Palate / Taste: Fruity front with malty approach. Felt bit flat for lager as well. Plain. No major flaws just quiet washed out of character.

KyotoLefty (9847) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2012
Can from a Lawson Conv. Store. 4%. Medium gold with a full, thick head. Big malty nose, rich cereals and wheat, a bit of butter. Sweet and rich malt flavor, quite a bit of diacetyl. Fruity, estery, banana and peach. Decent but too sweet and buttery. Full, rich mouth. Not much hop action.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Poured from a 14.9 oz. can. Has a rich golden color. Smell is of malts, a touch of corn. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, some grains. Overall a refreshing lager.

jonno (2638) - JAPAN - JUL 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 Can - listed as 4%. Also as Cains Premium Export Lager. Has an interesting aroma - almost like raisin bread. Yeah, raisin bread big time. Good full body, bready, crystal malt, a touch of sweetness and a smooth bitter finish. Much better than expected. Pretty straight forward and not brimming with flavour, but a good little number.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can. Poured pale gold with a large white, fairly dense head. Aroma was grassy, floral hops and some mild malt. Flavor was that plus some generic fruitiness. Rather sweet, low bitterness; needed some more balance on this count. Thick mouthfeel.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2012
