hayduke (5062) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 22, 2006
16 oz bottle. Poured yellow with small head. Nose of malt and a little hops. Bland, but actually easy to drink. Better than Bud.

PetStain (14) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Not much to this brew. Easy to drink with a good, if not a bit boring, taste. Nothing stands out, but it isnt bad.

Capa (3006) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Thin, slightly matly brew. Very little taste, with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Very unimpressive, though not "bad."

Sputerbug (114) - Nacogdoches, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2006
16oz bottle.Pours clear golden with a small white fast fading head.Slight aroma of malt and hops.There is a small amount of hops with some maltiness that is easy to drink but lacks flavor.

jake65 (3462) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Mostly grain and some sweet malts, no real hops to speak of. Unimpressive pale lager, but not awful like some.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle (UK Version). Slightly sweet grainy malts, just about non-existent hops. Fairly drinkable if a bit on the bland side.

Clear pale golden in color with a small white foam head. Weak aroma of sweet grainy malt. Watery malt flavor. Not terrible, but pretty boring.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2006
Brewed under licence by Charles Wells. You buy an exotic imported beer with dragons and Japanese characters only to find it was brewed in the English Midlands half a mile from your front door. Pale yellow with a lot of fizz. Yeasty aroma and an unusual sourness in the taste. Not the worst ever international lager.

dj (580) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle, brewed under license by Charles Wells. A yellow coloured pour with an average head. A musty aroma. A hoppy taste with a hint of rice. a very light bitter finish. Average carbonation. Boring.
