Not an inspiring appearance: pale and lacking a decent head. By no means an unattractive aroma, but though the taste began as pleasantly grassy, the flavours of decaying grasscuttings began to predominate. The final impression was thin, watery and lacking the promised bitterness.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Poured from a cool little 135ml can. Clear golden colored, fizzy white head. Weak hoppy aroma, same flavor with some maizy hints. Drinkable, but uninteresting, as expected! Crispy.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle. "the beer for all seasons" - we shall see. Poured a clear, bubbly, bright pale yellow - huge white, creamy head, draught-like lacing on glass. Smells terrible - sour and composty, stewed mushrooms, wet newspaper, soggy straw, bit of artificial sweetener over the top. Taste is strong metals clanging against minerals and chemicals - a bit of big-brew maltiness and a tease of hops and grains, and still that sweetness at the edge of perception - like overripe fruit, almost. Light and somewhat chalky/dusty on the palate, slips away quicker than thought, leaves a dusty, vaguely sweet and brackish after-echo. Not really awful, overall, but I won’t touch it again.

I usually get this at Japanese restaurants, simply because I think its the best Japanese beer that you can find at most sushi places. Dry, yet crisp and refreshing. A nice lager.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
Vague hoppy aroma. Regular looking pale lager with some lacings. Flavor is one of the anonymous ones ever. I could never pick this out in a blind tasting.

NosirIwont (2105) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours a yellow/golden colour with a white head. Sweetish aroma with cereal notes. Flavour is weak - hops, maybe. Faint notes of cardboard. Don’t really know about that ’super dry’-thing either. I don’t even find it regular dry. Moving on - yet again...

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
Bottle. - Very faint malty nose. The taste is bland and watery and almost nonexcisting. I suppose it would be ok as a mindless thirst quencher.... - then again so would water.

shrubber85 (8787) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2005
1 liter can. Light sour grape aroma. Light golden yellow color with quick collapsing head. Flavor - barely detectable malt and hops. No bad flavors - hardly any flavor at all. A nonoffensive thirst quencher.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours gold with a generous white head. Smell is of grapefruit and light malt. Taste is watery with a slightly bitter finish. Is there really a difference between this one and the Draft beer?
