BlackHaddock (6909) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
568ml can (Imp Pint), sat in the garden soaking up the sun on 15th March 2017. Decent enough quench thirsting beer. Clear golden pour, fading white head. Slight corn leanings in the malt led brew, mild hop bitterness late on. Nothing special, but equally nothing bad or wrong with the beer either.

Beer5000 (6269) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
568 ml bottle. Clear pale golden body with a small white head. Weak aroma of grain, more than less just like a weak version of any mass produced industrial lager. Not much favor either, corn with some light harsh bitterness. Thin and watery body almost no aftertaste. Very boring and close to unpleasant.

zvikar (5697) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2010
At the Grand Lager Tasting, thanks Naam, pours pale yellow with a nice head, aroma of cheese, marmalade, grass and some acids, flavor of malt with some sweetness and alcohol notes, light body.

ClubGonzo (5607) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
Can. Straw yellow body, short-lived white head. Nose is pale malts, metallic grassy notes and hints of wet paper. Taste is sweet pale malts, maize and some faint grass tones. Metallic aftertaste. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Yuck. The most pleasing thing about this beer must be the elaborate aluminum foil wrapped around the top of the can, which is kind of a nice (albeit horribly kitschy) touch. :-P

Marko (5354) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 28, 2014
Ogis, from Lithuania, pint can, thanks! Poured a golden body with a medium sized white head. Dry malty aroma, slightly sweetish perhaps. Empty, dry taste, some mild sweetish graininess perhaps, extremely, extremely light bitter note. Seriously? No off flavors, but, then again, pretty much no flavors at all. Yeah, I kinda dig the Volfas Engelman graphical/historical scheme. Too bad the beers arent nearly worth it.

1/2 pint on tap @ Talutti. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is grainy malts. Flavor is slightly watery and grainy malts. Drinkable.

Bottle from Super Lincs, Lincoln. Bright gold colour with a white head. Aroma is slight malt, taste sweet wheat and hops.

DanielBrown (4457) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
Can from Lithuanica, Birmingham. This is most certainly a game of two halves. Smells like a bald tennis ball. Upon swigging however, that early unpromise fades away to reveal a minerally, well constructed lager which hints at Germanic-ness. So far so good, but then it blemishes itself with a finish of rabid formica and Co-Op shelving during a stock check. I sort of like it.

SarkyNorthener (4335) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Can from Deya, burton. Pale yellow beer with small head. Aroma of sweetcorn and pale malts. Taste is weak malts and sweetcorn. Soft on the palate. Not much going on. Not good.

Grzesiek79 (4195) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 4, 2014
No ten juz nieco wyrazisty jasny lager slodowy niezbyt slodki nawet podchmielony konkretnie. Piekaca nuta na jezyku oraz sliczna puszysta i sniezna piana, dosc trwala. Kolor zlocisty z babelkami, fajna pintowa buteleczka. Ogolnie piwo lekkie w sam raz na lednie upaly.
