Lubiere (13049) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
A golden lager with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, grainy malt with light German hops, light sulfur. In mouth, a boring grainy malt with soapy qualities, faint corn and hops, so-so.

crossovert (11601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2012
In abv this is not the same as others listen on this site. 500ml can. Rare gusher can. Not really sure why. It pours a standard gold with a bright industrial lager looking white head that leaves typical lacing. The smell is grainy with some orange. For an EPL it isnt the worst. But where not talking a world-class pilsener here. The flavor is not the greatest. Very watery. There is a light pinch of noble hops with some orange and a faint bit of bitterness in the finish. Not super sure why this stuff gets imported other than it is a cheap beer.

jercraigs (10000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
2012-07-21. Crisp yellow with a small white head. Flavour is mild, sweet grainy cereals, very light bitterness. Aroma is similarly mild, notes of sweet grains and light straw. Average to light bodied palate. Dull but relatively inoffensive. Can from the LCBO, 4.8%, Toronto

BVery (9774) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Clear pale gold pour with a white head. Grain and pale malts - not interesting but not gross either. Good for what it is.

[4620-20120722] 500mL can. Mild grainy straw aroma. Clear, light orange brown body with a quick creamy white head. Straw grains and cardboardy dull flavour. Light-medium body. Poor. (5/3/5/2/10) 2.5

PorterPounder (7532) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - I pt .9 fl oz can. Pours a light-medium golden with a silkly snow white head - brief lacing. Patented saaz hop aroma, bit of skunk - but not off-putting. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some grassiness, a brief nutty back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Better than expected, and refreshing after a long drive.

blankboy (7351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Can [500ml]. Pours a bubbly gold with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grain, straw, vegetal notes, light grassy hops and some sugar. Watery flavour of grain, straw and very light grassy hops. Nothing foul or off in the flavour but there isnt much flavour at all. Light to average bodied. Like I said, inoffensive but quite dull as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light gold with a small head. Nose is junk white bread. Party beads. Taste is similar. Junky plastic and bread. Nasty. Light body, soft carb. Unpleasant.

BlackHaddock (6546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Green plastic bottle holding 50 cl (16.9 fluid ounces), screw-top, best before mid December 2007, drank 1st November 2007. Poured into one of my Veltin Pilsner glasses ( 20cl size) three times. All pilsners should be a clear golden yellow in colour, some are really pale, some darker, this is midway between and looked fine. A good white head, which did sink a little fast, to leave a thin covering above the beer which had a steedy stream of bubbles slowly meandering up the body towards the head. Can you smell dry hops and dry yeast? Well most likely not, in a beer anyway. That is what hit my nose. I normally give pilsners a 3 for aroma because I rarely smell anything, but I can smell this one and it isnt to my likeing. The dryness carries on into the taste, again not really to my likeing, it is not refreshing or as clean tasting as a German pilsner and lacks the fizz of an Italian Med Lager. It sits between the two and fails to excite me at all. Strangely, the bigger the mouthful the more I liked it, a supping beer it isnt, but a throwing or quaffing beer maybe. Trouble is a dont quaff or throw beer down my throat anymore, I like to supp and savour the taste. Ever licked a shoe box?
