Castle Lager uses South African hops – note the solid foam, as well as the reassuring bitterness with undertones of malt. This beer is somewhat dry, somewhat bitter but never sweet.

Another dreadful lager. Standard gold colour with a white head. Aroma with a trace of stale hops followed by a slightly sweet malt flavour. poor.

This is a commercial beer that unfortunately comes nowhere close to micro brewery levels and should not rated alongside them

Can - pours yellow gold with white head - nose and taste of corn, spent grain and metal - light medium body

Bottle @ THT. Weird country lager tick checklist. Typical lager look, clear golden, firm white head on top. Aroma of cardboard, skunk and grassy hops. Flavor is a bit skunked, light sweet and nothing new here. Just that...

jjsint (3437) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle from a corner shop in Highfields, Leicester. Golden yellow, clear with a bit of white head. Lemon aroma without the normal cardboardy hit in a macro lager. Bittersweet taste with a sour tang and more dryness near the finish. Reminds me of what I remember Budweiser tasting like: boring but surprisingly not terrible.

thepatrickman (1457) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 Can from Victoria station, London. This isn't as bland as a lot of macro lagers, but the flavour isn't too alluring. It tastes like stale bread and a little bit of syrup. There's also a smoky taste that lingers in the background, like it has peat malt in it, or something like that. Not a great lager, not a great beer.

Svartvit (917) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2017
Shared at the August THT. Pours a clear golden, white head. Very mild, cardboard juice.

Maakun (6340) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2017
Bottle at THT August. Clear golden with white head. Cardboard juice, sweet malts, weird bitter chemical, plastic, dry straw. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied. Very bad.

sjogro (4654) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2017
THT August at Kwartje. Sampled from bottle. Clear golden with white head. Sweet malts, cardboard. Moderate sweet and light bitter. Buttery. Medium body and soft carbonation.

gramity (1680) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Light straw colour, minimal head. Lighter than the typical colour of the water I rinse my beer glass with. Bit grassy and and bitter with some malt sweetness. Quite thin.

CurlyJoe (305) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2017
Light with very little head. Not a lot of aroma, some malt sweetness. Quite a bitter taste, a bit overpowering.
