Golden yellow, small fluffy head, surprisingly decent lacing. (3+) Very grainy, mildly chemical aroma. Funkier than it is skunky. Harsh grainy flavour, mildly astringent at times. Thin to average palate. Unpleasant. Thanks for hosting us Harry, and for this wonderful way to start us off. No really, my deepest sincere thanks. Deepest. Sincere.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Bottle (650ml) - Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - courtesy of yours truly. Poured a clear gold with a thin white head. Sour vegetal corn mash aroma, redolent of wet wool work socks. Taste was annoyingly sweet and sour - icing sugar and sour corn, maybe a bit floral, but very harsh. Watery mouthfeel - only good thing about this is the quick finish - at least it doesnt last on the tongue. Ugh.

Sammy (11845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2005
Too carbonated, like ginger ale. Some spice flavour in there, its like a biere de garde, overwhelmed by corn and sugar and malt and watered down. Harsh finish

bkurtz (1075) - MOROCCO - AUG 15, 2005
(flip-top bottle) Pourted a small white head with a light straw aroma. Well balanced with a slighlty bitter finish. Potental is there for clean, crisp beer, but it was too thin.

BeerandBlues2 (12841) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Pours gold orange with a small foamy white head. Musty oak and sour malt (hay, straw) and yeast (dough) with grape notes. Lined lacing. Sour dry corn malt and musty yeast flavor. Lively carbonated light bodied palate with a dry finish.

Golden and clear with a musty metallic aroma. Corn metallic flavours.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2005
680 ml flip-top bottle. Pale golden colour, thick lasting white head. Heavy sulfurous aroma with a dose of skunk. Flavour is fairly perfumy, along with some sulfur and minerally flavour. Skunky with a touch of spice. I dont know exactly whats wrong with it, but theres definitely something wrong with it.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2005
Full gold colour. Rich head holds reasonably well for a pale lager, and leaves lace on the glass. This is a definite plus for a style that usually doesnt do this. The aroma is grassy, grainy-malty with an alcoholic undertone. The alcohol comes through even more in the flavour, battling the light pale malts for control of the palate. What you ultimately have a light but fairly clean pale lager ruined by a superfluous alcohol taste. It doesnt meld with the other elements and is inappropriate for the style. 6% is too strong for a regular beer, but quite frankly it doesnt cut it at all if what you want is the raunch of a malt liquor. There is too much graininess for this to work as a mocne-style. Sitting in between the three styles, it is the best of none and the worst of all. (Same with Singha, which is also a 6% pale lager. The concept simply doesnt work).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Pretty, orangey golden beer with some impurities. Small head. First sensation is sweet malt, then a warming alcohol takes over. Actually reminds me a bit of a dry white wine! Quite unusual. Appears stronger than it actually is - a bit alcoholic. 060401

Bottled. Golden color no head. Thin metallic taste. Grassy/skunky aroma. Only drank half til I tapped out.
