I asked for a case of Lion stout, and instead was given a case of Lager. I took it as an omen and decided to keep it instead. Big mistake on my part. There isn't anything exceptional about this beer at all. It isn't awful, but its just boring. I definitely had trouble drinking more than one of them in a sitting.

Holmen1 (6475) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2017
Flaske, delt med Steve på hytta okt-17: klar dyp gylden med kort skum. Ubehagelig aroma med råtnende grønnsaker og gamle, uvaskede gymsokker. Søtlig, ufrisk smak. En skikkelig skuffelse, siden deres stout er så god. Best å glemme hele greia. Panten var det beste med denne.

Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Sampled from a bottle - thanks Jan! Light brown/gold colour with a white head. Little aroma and a taste of corn syrup and not much else. Doesn't really taste like a lager. Not great.

Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle at Mount Lavinia, Nuremberg. Cloudy light brown colour, with a lively, large head. Great, unfiltered beer that tastes far more like a Belgian style than a larger (let alone a pils).

Op vakantie in Sri Lanka gedronken, uit fles. Geen bijzonder bier, maar gewoon lekker koud pils tijdens eten op het strand.

MarcoBasile (467) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2017
Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet corn, pale malts and whole grains. Taste is light but crisp. Sweet malts and little to no bitterness. Dusty.

Zajímavá zkušenost,takový mix belgických a českých charakteristik. Rozhodně poměrně dobré pivo.

Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2017
Small can from Sri Lanka, 4.8%. Clear yellow, mostly fading white foam. Corny bready lager malt aroma and taste, surprisingly inoffensive. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Geruch malzig getreidig süß, im Geschmack sehr malzig Honig dunkler Honig süß getreidig

DrNosha (2719) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2017
330ml Flasche. Stroh und Getreideduft. Leider auch geschmacklich mies. Süsslich, dann Kork. Recht wässerig.
