Small airy white head, pale yellow body. Malt, hops and corn in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and slight malty, it actually tastes like a lager with added sugar. Not very good, just as expectet.....!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Nice golden color,small white head that had a decent hang time then faded to a small lace.The aroma was forgettable.Mild malt and hops,with maybe a hint at fruit but hard to say just which fruit it is.The flavor was lightly malty with a decent light hop presence but still a little thin and a slight medicinal side to it.It’s not a totally horrible brew but it’s damn close.It’s worth trying once but i wouldn’t go out of my way to get more then one.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Picked up this little 9.5 oz. bottle solely because I had never heard of it and it was from Lebanon. Then it sat in my beer fridge while my trepidation about it grew. One night a few weeks ago, I thought about popping it open, saw the reviews here, and put it back in the fridge. Finally broke down and decided there was nothing to fear. Unfortunately, I was wrong, there was plenty to fear. Pale yellow, fizzy head. Grain, rice, corn nose. Matching flavors, with some chemical oriented dirty sweetness. Not good.

Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head from a tiny green bottle that fades quickly leaving some lace. Pale yellow color. Nose is skunky. Very light bodied and carbonation. Didn’t expect much from a Middle Eastern country got some sweetness, no hops nothing like a pilsner. Good for a quick thirst killer but you need 2-3 bottles to really get into this. I needed it for a new country (#55). $1.75 for a 280ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2004
Weak gold with no head. Aromas are skunky, sugary sweet and chemical. Flavours are sweetened water with some malt traces. Serve it VERY cold and it might be refreshing.

bottled: had this kid at the mediterranean cafe. you know trying to keep up with the ethnic thing. seems to ’sometimes’ make the beer taste better. nothing to write home about but good enough for me to order only at the mediterranean cafe....

weisinator (67) - USA - APR 5, 2004
Faint smell of Saaz hops. Pale yellow with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Flavor is light, and on the sweet side. There is a hint of bitterness with a dry finish.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Standard pils look, golden, poofy white head and active. Nice orange-bloom aroma. This is musky-malted beer with Molson-like flavors. Decent import from an unlikely place.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2004
Bottled. Pale golden larger with a modest white head. Green hop aroma, with soft supporting larger malts. A modest beer in every way but certainly more sincere and true to beer then the light beers being produced and consumed on mass around the world.
