imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale straw coloured with carbonated head. Saved for the Latvia v Holland game, sweet malt mash with corn notes and a false hoppiness. Doughy, yeasty, but not disgusting.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2004
Light gold with a thin soapy white head. Light hoppy floral aroma and grass. Good mouthfeel. Sour milk flavours, pineapple/peaches with traces of spice. Finish is washed out. Lacks any real character.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2004
Bottle pours translucent straw, small milky white, with lively carbonation.   Grass, grains, and malt on the aroma.   Sweet malt taste up front, followed by a slight bitterness.   Finishes with a metallic tinge.   Drinkable, but lacks any real crispness, and the finish is sub-par.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Yellow fizzy beer with a head which collapses quickly. Initially skunky when poured, with a grassy aroma with slight apples. Very sharp dry hops, with some sweetness and tin can in aftertaste, very light bodied.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Clear yellow colour with a large, frothy head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of slightly skunky & stale hops and mildly fruity malt. Flavour is sweet, grassy, and a little cidery. Generally inoffensive.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
Golden yellow colour with fluffy fast to go off yellow white head. Sweet aroma, almost like a malt liqour. It's like a typical american standard to me. Really nothing special.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
This is a lot better than I anticipated. body is a golden colour, with lots of nice bubbles floating around. Head is fluffy and white. Aroma is citrus, hops, and grass. Flavour is citrus and hops. A bit of a sour note to it as well. Nice bite in the throat too. Also very refreshing.

This is just a plain average lager, there is nothing special about it. Very bland. Pale golden in appearance. Aroma is grassy, tastes like carbonated water...very light

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
(500ml bottle) Pours a huge, foamy, white head and a well carbonated, light golden body. As tbone mentions below, the lager laces nicely on the glass and the head has staying power. The nose gives a lemon and floral scent, slightly lactic and sweet. Fairly fizzy on the roof on ones mouth. A honey sweetness coupled with a perfume with a quick, sharp bitterness then finish. As it warms up - it gets a fuzzy banana flavour to it. I kind of liked it? Above average.
