Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Huge soapy-sudzy white head, but it dissipates fast. Clear-as-glass, straw-golden hue. Very soft, like soft water. Yeasty-funky nose, with strange aromas. Slight skunky bite with faint herbal aromas. Synthetic sweetness is reminiscent of plastic, corn and fermented dough.

Straw colour; fruity aroma - some plastic, too. A little malt, herbal hops, apple. Mild and more or less drinkable.

Very pale in colour with rather big lively head. Aroma is very weak. Flavor starts off sweet and ends in a dry hoppy finish.

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Bottle. Golden color with a laced white head. A bread malty aroma with a corn, grain, and slightly sweet malt flavor. Started to hurt my head by the end of the glass.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle: Pours a pale straw yellow color, nice carbonation and a relatively nice head and lots of lacing. The nose is dusty with a light rice vinegar note, fermented mango peel and plastic. The flavor is a bit sweet and malty with some lingering vague background bitterness making as much a fuss as a white painted room. Vague grainy rotten cucumber texture in the mouthfeel. Finishes sharp, chalky, acidic. Not that great.

Clear gold with a white head. Aroma corn and alcohol(?). Taste is quite sweet corny malts with alcohol and light hops. I dunno why I am tasting so much alcohol in a 5.2% beer, but it drops the rating.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
Tap, Riga... A terrible, headache inducing pint. Truly awful chemical taste, I can only imagine that the pipes hadn’t been cleaned correctly...

Can. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of corn, grains, sugar and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some yellow apples and grains. Thin body, average carbonation.
