Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle: Poured a light blonde color lager with a pure white foamy head with some good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet malt is mostly bland. Taste is also dominated by some semi-sweet notes of malt with little else if maybe some traces of oxidation. Definitely not the worst pale lager I had but not the most interesting either.

350ml Bottle - ABC Store - Honolulu, Hawaii
2008 - Hawaiian Beer Run
Aroma Skunky aroma with a slight tin can smell from the bottle.
Appearance Light pale yellow color, clear and very light head.
Flavor Little good beer flavor, lots of light struck and skunky flavors. Too much diacetyl and off bad flavors.
Palate Very dry finish with just a bad Mouthfeel this was not fun.
Overall Had to try it it was there bought it drank it and wow this was nasty stuff. Even the big beers from BMC are better than this. Damn it was BAD.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle [thank you, yespr, shared @ Plan B] Average egg-white head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a straw like color. Spare lacework. Hay, cardboard or even wet cardboard, straw, caramel. Light bodied with a hint of dry texture and a soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Light sweet finish.

Bottle. [thank you, yespr, shared @ Plan B]
Pours a light pale golden-yellow with a small creamy white head. Quick to disappear. Aroma has hay and citric hops. Thin and watery. The flavour(s)? ehrmm... lightly sweet, cardboard, weak citric hops, but actually nothing.

ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Pale golden, some head, lacing and retention. Aroma is grainy with a hint of bread and grass. Light body, high carbonation. Somewhat decent flavors for the style, but the carbonation kills.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2007
50cl bottle labeled best before 06.02.08. Poured a clear yellow color with a large sized white head. Aromas of sweet malts and light grassiness. Tastes of the same with some bready notes. Thin body.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2007
The beer after its release from the 50cl bottle is a very pale yellow with a smallish creamy white head that measures about three quarters of an inch, as it fades quickly, the lacing is thin and patchy. Nose is the archetypal sweet malt; light and pleasant, start is sweet, thin malt presence with the top cadaverous. Finish has a mild acidity, the hops barely there, a bit watery with the aftertaste dry. The beer is what I would expect from this part of the world, just dont see myself drinking an Russian Imperial Stout while laying on the beautiful sandy beach watching the sun slowly sink over the horizon, in my younger days, I would have added a few Tahitian beauties. lol
