500ml can (@4.8% ABV), with the same obfuscating aftermarket label stuck onto it. Thanks a bunch.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with three swollen fingers of puffy, rocky, and somewhat fizzy off-white head, which leaves a bit of streaky and sudsy lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of stale corn husks, kind of sour pale malts, a hint of metallic or plastic astringency, and very weak leafy, weedy, and dead hooker (oops, I meant 'floral') green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, corn pone, subtle musty cardboard notes (and the plastic ties that bind it), lager yeast, and more well understated herbal, weedy, and skanky 'verdant' hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its mildly aggressive frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and actually more or less smooth, nothing really having the temerity or gumption to mess about here. It finishes off-dry, the mixed malt kind of starting to assert itself once those nasty esters have blown their wad.

Overall, yeah, this is certainly nothing to be proud of, with a number of off-flavours abounding. I'm going to have to say it, uh huh, I'm going to go and 'pan the Pan Lager'. Somebody had to do it, and it might as well have been me.
