AshtonMcCobb (6916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a bright, pale yellow with steady bubbles and a decent head, some of which hangs around. The nose has a nice malty sweetness. the taste has some oatmeal, more of the sweet malt and there is a creaminess.The palate is light to medium in body, creamy in texture and with a long clean finish. Overall, I feel that in flavour, this has taken a small step away from lager towards a brown ale - nice!

Thin pale lager beer, quite watery. head is dissipating quickly, despite the pretty high carbonation. Cardboard, some noble hops.

Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2011
Received a 330 ml bottle from my brother who vacationed in New Zealand. Pours a clear golden light amber colored brew with a pillow-like white head that slowly dissipates to a film top. Nice spotty lacing too. Aroma of golden grain malt, some grassy hops, a touch of multi-grain cereal a hint of corn. Taste is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt, floral and a hint of grassy hops and a touch of white bread. Finish is nicely balanced between soft bitterness and multi-grain malt. Overall and very sessionable light drinking lager.

Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2011
Pours gold with a small head. Nose shows some bready malt and faint noble hops. Little else. Very similar flavours but a faint cardboard note also shows. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Carbonation is too high.

EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 Pours golden with nice amber hues. Fizzy head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavour has a really nice malt base with hints of bread, sweetcorn and a very light honey sweetness. A really good lager with the balance on malt and very little bitterness. Really good lager.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle in London. Clear copper pour with a sliding, fizzy white head. Cheap malts and grain in the nose. Sugary flavor, some cereal grains and not really any bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. More cereal, sugar and not terribly pleasant malts to finish. An uninspiring beer on the whole.

2.6
LoFi (1753) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle at Gourmet Burger Kitchen. Golden, with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is light, with biscuity malt and fruit. Taste: sweet, biscuity malt, grassy hops, some fruit, and a low bitterness. Fizzy, light to medium-bodied. Not bad exactly, but I wouldn’t have it again.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle - Gold with thin white head. Fairy high carbonation. A pretty average pale lager. Rather thin and watery.

FatPhil (17079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2010
330ml bottle (Aussie Bar, Helsinki)
Aroma? No freaking idea - I didn’t detect any. As this is in a dark green bottle I couldn’t see the colour, presumably it’s pale. Thin palate - fizzy. Sickly sweet, but also thin taste. Tragically bad attempt at tasting like beer. No actual horror, but not good in any way.

2.2
bmeup (680) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2010
Pale straw yellow, minimal head. Not much of anything and less of everything. Sweet and bland at best. Not even lawnmower beer.
