Draft at brewery. Poured a very pale gold with no head retention. Not very much to the aroma, but non-offensive. Some floral hops present in the flavor and a little corn. Very light-bodied. Smooth on the palate with a crisp finish. Just a bit lighter and weaker than most other pale lagers that I have tried. BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottles of this have found their way to a cut price supermarket chain in the UK: 69 Pence (about a dollar) for 330ml worth.
I poured my bottle into a ’Back Forty Beer Co’ glass to make it feel at home (kind of) on 9th Jan 2014.
Very pale golden/straw coloured body, clean and clear, the white head left before it arrived to leave a white collar and a little wisp on the surface.
If this is their Premium beer I’m not too sure I’d like their regular brew. Although to be fair this isn’t a bad lager, it’s just a bit thin on character and flavourings. Refreshing without testing your taste buds or other senses too greatly.
The nose was semi-sweet and slightly grainy, the taste followed in that vein, being pretty sweet: where did the hops go?
Pleased it popped up in Shropshire, but I’ll not be rushing off back to the shop for any more. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Pours a clear bright golden with a thin coating of wispy white head. Sweet pale malty aroma even has some light fruity notes along with a touch of Saaz hops. Body starts fairly dull, with a touch of sweetness and bitterness. Smooth, crsip finish adds to the drinkability of this otherwise, standard pale lager.

Draft at the Minhas Brewery. Very pale, amongst the lightest-colored beers I’ve ever seen. Drinks with an uber-corny consistency, pretty weak. But it’s clean and unoffending. Good for the cheap-drunk-seekers I suppose. (#5125, 7/3/2013) mike_77 (6734) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2014
Hazy yellow. Aroma is a bit yeasty and sour. Flavour is also quite tart. Possibly a bad bottle

33cl bottle. Pours golden with a thin head and slight carbonation. The nose has butterscotch and pale malt - not much sign of hops. The taste has more of the same and still no hops and instead there’s a cardboard note. The palate is light to medium bodied with no middle and a disappointing head. Overall, as Blackadder said of Baldrick’s poem, ’’it didn’t start too well, it had a dodgey bit in the middle and it tailed off at the end’’. JPDIPSO (6236) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Light straw color with a fizzy white head. Light aromas of grain and hints of herbal hops and DMS. Light sweet grainy flavors. I hate to say this, but worse than I remember. mkel07 (6126) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2016
150616. This is one of those beers that is an unexpected find, not that it means that it is a good beer. I found this at the Spotted Cow Hotel in Toowoomba and this is the only place that I have seen it before or since.
This is certainly not a standout beer but as far as premium lagers go it is not that bad and I have certainly drank a lot worse (think XXXX). In the glass the beer is a solid enough amber colour and carries a very small head . Thin bodied in the mouth but not as watery as I was expecting and certainly not undrinkable.
Aromas and flavours of dirty wet straw with a slightly soapy aftertaste. There is nothing really about this beer that makes it a standout from all of the other lagers going around. Skyview (6076) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2009
OMG! They still make this? From 12-oz can pours a clear golden straw brew with plenty of carbonation and a thin white ring. Aroma of very light popcorn, some citrus and grassy hops and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light bodied, metallic texture with flavors of light popcorn, grassy hops and some dry rice. Finish continues a gritty and metallic aftertaste. It’s okay for a summer lawnmower beer but I still prefer water. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2007
Personal Milestone: Pale Lager rating #300 (out of 3515)!!!!! Whooptie-Doo!!!!!< />Unless, of course, Cave Creek Chili Beer and Tequiza are finally moved to Spice/Herb/Vegetable where they properly belong, inwhich case I get the excitement of doing #300 again...
Anywhat - This poured a bubbling pale yellow body with a slight head that rapidly diminishes into a film. It has a faint aroma of sweet apple cider, pale malt, and a bit of corn. The same with the watery flavor, although a touch of tin comes in near the finish. Not painful.
