(Bottle, at Thai restaurant) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Light aroma of corn grain and rice. Flavor of bland hops and some sweetness with a watery mouthfeel.

Tinned, 500ml, at Wagamama’s Reading. Pale gold with white head. I’d forgotten this one. Thin, corny, malt lager with little hop character. Some sweetness, quite tinny, metallic. Doesn’t really appeal.

Nothing special to it, light and mildly refreshing. A little bit of a funky taste but nothing to bad. Badass logo is probably the best part of the beer.

mmmbeer (1428) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2008
12 oz. bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured transparent golden yellow, white head formed but collapsed, aroma of yeast and light malt, light carbonation. Hits the mouth with a thin body, kinda a sweet corn ring to it, hops and malt are very weak, finish goes away rapidly. Very uninspiring.

What can I say. A pale lager. It won’t kill you but there is not much there.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 355ml bottle from the black heart of the big bad Brewer’s Retail a.k.a. The Beer Store. Pours the typical pale lager colour with a large but quickly diminishing head. Aroma is mostly corn and vegetables. Flavour is definitely better, with some hop bite in the finish and a touch of pepper? Very dry finish. Bland and watery palate, with some weird element to it that I can’t quite put my finger on, sort of boozyish. Maybe there’s some Steelback still lingering on my palate! Not too bad actually, drinkable, and there are much worse pale lagers out there. Cool design on the label too.

Bullit (4675) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2008
Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma has bread and corn. Flavour is sweet and grassy. Average.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Fairly standard pale lager. Pale gold color with a small white fast disappearing head. MIld corn aroma and taste. Slight bitterness and dryness in finish.

mjs (7588) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2008
(Bottle, brewed by Wells & Young, on 2008-08-09) Pale golden. Clear. Largish white head. Metallic nose with light hoppy aroma. Light-bodied soft palate with lot of carbonation. Bitterness and bit of sweetness in taste. Boring.
