SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
16 oz can. Pours clear gold with lightly creamy white head. Aroma is very grainy and sweet with subtle mild hop presence. Flavor is grainy, malty back bone, light sweetness, subtle mild hop with a touch of grass and subtle earthy finish. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad but seems a bit too sweet, wouldnt want more the 1.

degbert (1771) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a very dark gold with a cream head. Leaves a little lace. Nose is beery, with some malic and toasty undertones. Not bad, not good, just inoffensive. Heavy malt on the tongue, with an odd cheesy undertone; it reminds me of browned cheese on a lasagna. Finishes long and a little disjointed. Fair to middlin, but not much else.

It tastes a lot like an EPL, of course it is one, but I am talking the eastern euro variety.

Martin243 (1119) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2011
Not massively impressed, for a beer that the brewery calls "Finest". Fairly straightforward generic 5% lager. Probably alright cold on a hot day, and better than megaswill, but thats hardly a recommendation, is it?

wlajwl (6604) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Slightly sweet malty aroma while the appearance is medium deep golden, close to a Premium Lager. The flavor is heavy on graininess and mildly sweet. Was expecting less than this as far as quality, it was surprisingly good.

dynamiteninja (1844) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle. Branded as "Cains Finest Export Lager". Medium white head that lasts until the finish. Good lacing from mid way through. Sparking gold body. Aroma is of a mainstream lager brand such as Carlsberg or Carling if it was cranked up a notch. Beautiful lager smell (from the hops?), metal and spicy pine notes. Taste is reminiscent of the sweeter Iberian lagers. Gentle bitterness with sweet hints. Dusty dry finish. Drinkable. Refreshing when youre boiling hot. Would need a direct comparison, but probably better than Staropramen. A little too sweet though, which begins to get rather cloying.

markas101 (2406) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2011
50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via Liverpool. Honey colour, no head. Pepper caramel aroma. Tingle of carbonation, long dry taste with some underlying sweetness. Background of sourness that is trying to get out. Unappealing bitterness finishes it.
