Looks, smells, tastes, and finishes like nothing - it’s as if you haven’t drunk anything at all. Although there is nothing particularly unpleasant to take away from this beer, it is one of the most boring beers I’ve tried in a very long time.

2.1
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 A Mes rate: Spicy hoppy aroma. Very light blonde looks with a crap head. Yeasty flavour with some fairly apparent hoppy bitterness. Strong malt throughout with some slight citrus notes. Thin moutfeel. Cool bottle though.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottled: Pours a clear pale straw colour with medium carbonation and a fluffy white head. Lightly fruity hop nose. Body is very thin - as is the flavour, nothing offensive simply because there is nothing much of anything. Mild bitter finish, a lawnmower beer at best. Better still upgrade to the Sassy Red instead. Thanks Beer Legend.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a slim white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is fairly bland. Not much going on. Thin bodied. Doesn’t taste bad, just pretty boring.

DuffMan (10436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Golden, faint hops on nose and palate, definitely thin in the body, but refreshing.

2.5
JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Very pale golden colour, no head. Aroma is grainy with some earthy and herbal type of hop that I’ve never tasted before. Flavour is reasonably balanced with both interesting hop flavour and some malty character. Won’t win any prizes, but at least it tries.

2.2
leaparsons (10557) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle. Light gold with a white bubbly head. Aromas are grain, corn and metal with soap and some sour fruitiness. Flavours are sweet grain with caramel, biscuit and some fruity sourness. Not too bad in the end. Nice bottle, too. Warning - it has just warmed up, and its not so good. Drink it quick and its OK.

1.6
duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Pretty sweet and thin. Reminded me of Cascade Summer Blonde, another of these golden summery, bland lagers which seem to be popular down under. Sweet pale malt, and not much else. In many ways this is a typical Antipodean lager, but perhaps this is a bit cleaner.

2.2
Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle: Clear yellw without much head. Smells like a pilsne; golden malts and some grassy hops... not much though. The flavour is dissapointing and watery. Not much of anything there really. Not too good really.

2.5
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 (Bottle 33,5 cl) McCashin’s, a small and proundly independent brewery situated in the middle of the hop growing area in NZ around Nelson. Pale golden, with quite a decent head. Fairly classical lager type with a nice hop-bite. Surprisingly full body considering the low alcohol. 270603

(On tap) Courtesy of yalnikim. Clear, pale golden with a small, white head. Lightly sweet, malty nose. Medium body with notes of malt, brewing cereal and fruit. Dry finish. In the better end of NZ Pale Lagers, yet still just a Pale Lager though. 4/2/4/2/8=2.0 310108
