Oh swell. That Dos Equis Amber tap turns out to have Special Lager coming from it. I mean, no, neither option is a good one, but dammit, I do not need a pint of fizzy yellow DESL in front of me at this point in the evening. Yellow-gold color with a slight white head. Smells like shitty lunchtime street corn the vendor has left over from the night before. Tastes the same, with an all-encompassing buttery yeasty blech dominating the flavor. Sweet. Unpleasant. Shoulda asked for a lime.

RW80 (2491) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2017
355ml can tahanks to Benzai. Apperance: A clear golden with a small quickly diminishing head. Aroma: cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones. Taste: moderate sweet watery, cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones. Low carbonation, thin watery body. Simply lacks the crispyness, and becomes one of so many industrial lagers.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a minuscule white head. Aroma is sweet grain, corn, and rancid malt. Taste is sweet corn, some grain, and vaguely spicy grass. Bitter yeast lingers. Light body. High, fizzy carbonation. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

Skunk bottle. Pours medium golden with a decent white foam subsiding average slow. Scent is skunky lager. Taste is tinny and light pale lager with light notes of apple. Finish is slightly sticky. Poor.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 From a bottle. Pale lager with hint of malty flavour. Frothy mouthfeel but nice. Refreshing when cold. Enough body to be interesting, despite a faint hint of something strange like mouthwash but with a pleasant background palate of whisky malt. Overall good.

Bottle. Pour a clear pale gold with a white head. As pale lagers go, this one really isn’t that bad.

Bottle from the Emperor Cambridge. Drunk in good company. Shame about the beer. Light lager yellow with a tightish white head. Smells very malty with a hint of ... paprika maybe. Stale malty notes with an odd grassy peppery note. Long sweet aftertaste. A mess even by macro lager standards. Boo hiss.
