fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Blond color. Milder taste than the regular. The palate as well is too weak.

1.4
harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Draught. Gold colour with thin white head. Some dead pale malt aroma, some odd citrus fruit. Can I taste rice and maize? Certainly some adjuncts in this. Then a sickly prickly finish. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Too gassy and flavours are indistinct

1.7
rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2006
Light golden, small white head. Sweetish, malty aroma, some corn. Weak malty flavor, some fruit. Thin and boring.

2.6
Oakes (18538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2004
Deep gold colour (like a Bohemian pils). No real head, though. Slightly malt and oily, but only slightly so, like a very light Bohemian pils. Moderate body. Much softer than the regular Kirin Lager (which I just had). Maltiness dominates, but is not particularly well-extracted. Light grassy bitterness and continental hop undertones complement the malts. Not bitter enough to be a proper pilsner, but it has many of the same components. Decent.

TBone (18013) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Bottled, alc. 5.0% (BB 08/2006)
Brewed by license in UK.
Pale yellow, small white head. Weak maize-corn, malty nose. Quite light palate.Sweet fruity maltyness. Also aftertaste is sweetish malty. Somewhat you can expect from Asian pale lager.

1.9
yngwie (17172) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2007
Bottled. Clear, almost golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is weak, with just some fruity notes. The flavor is weak as well, with some fruityness, hops, grass and malty hints. Medium body and a hop-fruity finish. Could’ve used a lot more of everything. (070106)
