Uma cerveja que agradou. Espuma branca de boa formação. Dourada. Cheiro de cereais, suavemente frutado. Sabor também suavemente frutado, levemente amarga. Densa. Bem maltada.

Draught at Jabez Clegg, Manchester. Look, there was nothing else on and I was thirsty, OK? Other than appearance (typical lager colouring with attractive, lasting white head) there’s very little of anything here, aroma, taste or palate. Just an alcohol delivery system and not a very satisfactory one at that.

Golden color...fluffy head, with good lacing. Light aroma. Mild malt flavor up front, with just a touch of sweetness...crisp mouthfeel. Back is very light, with somewhat of a dry finish. Nothing really too complex with this brew...pretty light and very easy drinking.

bad beer. Birra normalissima, per niente buona, non si distingue dalle birre commerciali più famose.

Wischylini (313) - Grimstad, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2013
Pours slightly darker than the average pale lager, with a thin, white head that quickly fades into nothing. Aromas on the nose are faint, and anonymous, as most pale lagers. Aromas on the tongue are corn, cereals, apples; herbs and grassy notes in the aftertaste. The taste itself is a bit on the sugary side, but with a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thin and fizzy. Generally, this is a pretty boring beer, but as far as pale lagers go, this is far from the worst.

This is for "Kirin Ichiban Special Premium Reserve" Pours a golden transparent color with a white head that disapates quickly. There is not much aroma to speak of. Budwiesser comes to mind as I drink it. Not a good taste at all. In fact it will be hard to finish the bottle. Overall this is a pretty undrinkable beer. Bombber bottle.

Clear golden brew. Sweet malty aroma with dull fruity notes. Somewhat malty flavor with notes of hops with a bitter ending.

another beer with a thin, white head and little carbonation. however, it still has a nice, bubbly palate. there's a slight corn aftertaste...
