golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
bottle. amber pour with a little white head and some visible carbonation. aroma is some mealy, sweet corn and pale malt. flavor is overall sweet, and has a creamy texture that gives it a little more body than some other pale lagers.

Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Clear light fizzy yellow (very much within what’s expected for the style). Poured with a thin white head, that quickly dissipated. A faint whiff of hop bitterness, followed up cooked vegetable malt sweentess. Not a whole lot to talk about here. Barely a notice of hops, and there is some malt sweetness due to the corn adjunct. Not good, not the worst even. Lightish body, with decent carbonation, but not as fizzy as some others in the style. Definitely drinkable in so far as that you can drink two of them without having your palate notice. However, it is decently refreshing when one is in the ’macro’ mood. Overall, not the worst example of the style and I actually much prefer this to any of the ’light’ American adjunct lagers.

I thought this beer was nice and refreshing and enjoyed it alot. Although there was not much to the beer it was very pale and had a good finish on the palate.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 3, 2010
11.2oz bottle. Poured bright gold and clear with a light one finger head. Smell of grass and some corn are barely detectable in the nose. Taste is of corn with a little malty sweetness in the finish and a faint floral presence. Mouthfeel is crisp throughout with a clean after taste and a light body.

Bottle at home. Pale body with medium head. Nose of hops and bread. Taste bitter with sweet and hoppy tastes. A bit watery. Fine otherwise.

Tap on Tenerife. Fresh, slightly bitter, it’s an average pilsner like thousand others. Light golden, small head, bit of hops etc.

as i started writing this review, my stomach started turning again, that’s how good this beer was... pours a light orange gold with medium strength white head .. good lacing .. . light mild bitters .. muddled and off putting, drink it quick .. spain-brazil-usa-wait- no bueno! .. i’d like a fresh one sir!
