Pretty crappy beer. Some malt and bitter taste but not terribly pleasant. There are medals on the label, must have been the only beer in the competition.

Diogne (1203) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle. Clear yellow with an average frothy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is a little skunky with malt, some herbal hops, metal and sugar. Flavor is malt, with a very weird bitterness and some sugar. Medium body with fizzy carbonation.

Spab (3564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2009
330 ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow gold with rapidly disappearing white head. Light grassy aroma. Taste of corn and grain. Slightly hoppy finish. Nice embossed bottle but whats inside leaves plenty to be desired.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2009
A 0.33L bottle from Alko. Pale slightly sour nose. Pale head. Pale golden yellow colour. Mild taste with some hints of lemon. Hoppiness at end.

Eructoblaster (4011) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Pale blond body with good carbonation and an instantly fading white bubbly head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with corny and floral hints. Without being bad, taste is boring and lacks complexity. It ends with a short bitter finish. Another cheap macro-lager.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
330 mL Bottle with an East-Indian motif embossed on its sides. Clear yellow body with a foamy white head that settles to a wispy ring leaving fine lace on the sides of the glass. Aroma is grains with notes of floral, citrus, grassy hops, and a bit boozy. Flavor: a light corn-malt combo, thin-bodied, butter biscuit and a bit of nutty-bitter hops express in the aftertaste followed by a clean finish like a "dry" beer. A summer-time beer.

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
bottle: Hard to get a real taste for this after Green King IPA but here it goes . . . file this under the British making Indian pale lagers. LIke Kalyani & Taj Mahal, I always detect a litte sweetness at the bottom which makes it slightly stand out from other lagers. You can do way worse with pale lagers, this isnt that bad at all.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2009
Just another macro swill. Is a bit sweet and malty with a hint of hops. No interesting character, not worth trying again.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
330ml Bottle: I keep buying beer but I dont drink it, which basically means Ive got a cellar full of swill I need to start disposing of. It starts here. Pours light golden yellow with a surprisingly nice foamy white head. Heavy boozy corn aroma, like an average Labatt product, slightly sweet and malty. Flavour is just.. blah. Alcohol, candy, corn (not to be confused with candy corn.. well, actually, maybe thats close..), metal, fairly heavy hopping providing bitterness with no character whatsoever. Welcome to macro lagerland.. population, this guy. *shrug*

What a real disappointment. This lager just gets worse the more it is drunk. Nobody surely actually drinks this beer for the flavour or do they? Cant quite believe how much ive also been charged for this in the past. I see absolutely no reason to drink a bottle of Cobra - even in a restaurant. I had four 330ml bottles in one go so I think im being fair!
