Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle. Light yellow pour, decent sized head. Syrup like body, but actually a little bit of a malt base there, which was surprising. Could not get much out of the aroma. Taste is standard bad imported Euro lager, insert tinny, corny, grassy adjective here. But I would rate this one slightly higher than most of my failed lcbo experiments, simply because there was a little more flavour in there. Deep down.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2004
Clear pale gold. Soft, fluffy snow white head. Strong cooked corn stench. Thin, fizzy feel. Bland, sweet honey-ish malt flavour w/ notes of cooked corn & diesel fuel. Somewhat harsh mineral bitterness in finish.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2004
Pours a clear straw colour with a big bubbly head. Malt aroma. Higher carbonation than most europeans. Sweetish malt flavour with mild and somehow strange hop bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3395) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2004
Pale gold body topped with a nice and thick bubbly head. Average malty aroma with some pleasant and surprising citrus hints. Taste is fairly bitter, bready, and stronger that I was expecting, but the finish is very discreet. The fact that I drank it after the "best before" day may explain why it was so tasty. Well... good for me!!

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Clear gold color, with a large white head. Horrible sour soapy aroma that’s like old dishwater. The flavor was much better than the aroma thank God. Not great, but better than it smelled. Sweet with no hop presence, but not unpleasant. Marginally drinkable beer.

radiomgb (2519) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Very pale golden colour. Aroma of very light hops, some corn and possibly some cooked vegetables. Flavour was of mild hops, some grass, mild corn and watery. Light body, mild carbonation. Finishes light, watery and quick.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2004
This stuff is not bad, sort of like Warsteiner, in the consistency of drinking a loaf of bread, very doughy with lots of adjuncts.

imdownthepub (11474) - 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 (1032) - 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.
