Schroppfy (2360) - Łdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2011 The aroma has something to it, thats for sure. Grainy huskiness, raw wheat, corn, hops (grassy). The flavor actually carries some genuine bitterness, moderate. Kind of thick and slick mouthfeel yet quite carbonated. Easy to drink, very little sweetness, especially but not excusively early, while cold. Even holds up a little in the body when warmer. Better than many of these commercial Polish lagers Ive been sampling, surprisingly. From a can.

ClubGonzo (5653) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Can. Pours a pale lager body, no more no less. Nose is grain, pale malts, hints of wet cardboard. Some lager yeast. Pretty faint, all in all. Taste is smooth pale malts with moderate-to-low hoppiness, acting as a mere balancing agent rather than a taste component. A drinkable beer that lacks character altogether. OK, but really bland.

jaghana (5882) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle 50cl. A copper beer with medium head. This beer is an Oktoberfest kind beer, lagers yeast smell, malty and toasted notes, intense diacetyl, medium bitter, grassy hops, mostly dry. Not really bad but mainly basic.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2010
Can. standard pale lager pour: clear golden, medium white head, rather poor retention. Clean grainy aroma, marzipan nuances. Clean grainy palate, on the sweet side, very little hop presence. Not really premium lager status in my books, but not horrible either. Whatever.

Hammy78 (971) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010
Sampled from a 500l can purchased at the LCBO. I cant say I was a big fan. Poured a gold/ yellow, small (if any) white head. Smells of grain and corn, tasted much the same.

Onslow (1466) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Pour from a 500ml can. Despite the commerical description here, the can is labelled 6.0% ABV. Can is dated 9-2-2010. Aroma is nodescript grains, Appearance is typical golden lager. Flavor is nice but rather bland. Sweet and pleasnat grains with a little hops in the finish. The best thing to say about this is that there is nothing foul about it.
