PanMarek (401) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Pale yellow pour with little white foam. Grassy hops and cereal malt in the nose. The body is light with lots of fizz. The hops have a citrusy taste at first and the malt finish is biscuity. Slightly watery body.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Hndlerlieferung). Warum ein normaler Mitteleuroper das Zeug trinken soll, bleibt mir unergrndlich!

FreeBeerOJones (1) - Stafford, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2016 does not count
Almost as good as other Desnoes Gedes Yuengling interestingly multivariately bitter beers from Pennsylvania. The price at Walmart has been coming down, but other DG Yuengling beers cost a dollar or two less and taste a little better. Overall a fine way out of simple and sweet corporate brews. Goes easily and well with Aldi sausage and surviving indigenous graveyard greens.

From a bottle. Meh. Thats about it really, standard macro lager that probably tasted better fresh.

Pyobon (1377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2016
(Bottle) Pours clear yellow gold, with no head. Aroma of biscuity malt with some veggie and grass notes. Light body, well carbonated. Lemon tang in foretaste, quickly gives way to reasonable biscuity malt which fades away for a somewhat watery finish. Refreshing, drinkable, not great.

TEJA (2932) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2016
Sample at SBWF 2016. Short white head and thinn yellow color. Malty and some billed vegetables aroma. Tiny body and almost non existent bitterness.

ianwelby (1301) - SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Just a slightly-below-average canned lager. Doesnt have any qualities that would see you rushing back for more but nor does it have that sickly-sweet edge or metallic bitterness that tends to make cheapo lagers less palatable.

alexmate (150) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Appearance: A golden yellow urine colour, minimal lacing and a very small head which wasnt retained. Nose: Some lemon, light malt, a creamy vomit smell which might be hay or floral, some orange. Taste; lemon and lime, not much bitterness or hoppiness, some grass notes, it is let down by being too fizzy and thin. I thought it was slightly spicy on the aftertaste when I tried it many years ago, but this seems very subtle in the new lower ABV version, if present at all. Pretty good and better than most mass-produced lager.

commonmac (1177) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle at Newsroom. This place used to be a cool spot. How the mighty have fallen. Its in the stubby bottle so hard to see the color but assuming its a light golden. Smell is the traditional kind of frat party grainy quality. Taste is pretty simple and a standard lager. Plenty of grain but feels like your typical domestic effort. The commercials were outstanding. The beer needs the beach to achieve something close to average. You are very ugly!
