Dorqui (2260) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Compact and adherent head even if of short duration. Shining yellow color with discreet fizz. Light dampen grains, straw and malty scent. Bitterish and lightly watery taste with light notes of malt on the end.

lb4lb (2629) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Light to medium gold with a fair amount of white head. Definite lacing as I drink. Smell is of honey sweet malt mostly. Taste is refreshing, slightly watery, with a touch of bitter and sweet malt up front followed by a smooth lightly sweet rice-like finish. I really like this one, and it is definitely my favorite light lager. Very easy drinking and refreshing with a hot meal, or on a hot day and exactly what I’m looking for when I want a cold beer to cool me off.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2007
On tap with some sushi tonight. Is there ever another circumstance in which I’d pick this beer? Probably not, but it was either this or Newcastle. Anyways, typical mass produced golden lager, with slightly more buttery flavor and a fuller body than the average swill.

RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 11, 2007
Tap, L’Orient, St Andrews. Clear ambery gold with a thin white head that laces a bit. Malt nose with some funky sherberty fruit. Taste is really straightforward lager mouth, really heavily gassed, with a really watery thin palate. Boring and nothing unexpected.

HopnMalt (1) - GERMANY - JUL 11, 2007 does not count
Golden colour, medium head, medium carbonation Nose: a slight trace of hop and malt Taste: refreshing, sweet though quite thin, also minimal bitter hop traces The fInish is very short with another minimal hint of hop refreshig, no outstanding attributes, maybe worth a try

2.3
Dedollewaitor (16359) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Slight unclear with a white fading head. Fruity malty aroma. Thin palate. Taste is again quite fruity & fresh. Its thin like a lot of other mainstream lagers but it doesnt have Grain/corn & hay all over it. Light hops in the end! Drinkable!

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle; pretty putrid smell adjunct, corn and funk. Color was as expected; clear and hay gold. For the style, flavor was up there with the best, but we know what that means. A little hop bite in the ending.

bochi23 (116) - Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Japanese equiv. of AB or Miller. Growing up in Japan, this beer gets high marks (for a macro) from me for mostly nostalgic reasons.

shotgun1431 (138) - franklin furnace, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Golden, clear with a white head. Smells and tastes like bud except maybe a little more sweetness. Petty good.

2.4
madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Bottle. Pour is pale yellow, thin white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma is wheaty. Taste is like a typical macro lager beer with a little bit of taste in the finish, dare I say a little hop bite. Nice and crisp, thin, not much else.
