TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2007
Bottle, pours a clear golden colour with quite a lot of carbonation with a white bubbly head. Aroma of grassy hops and a sweet malt aroma. Very carbonated in the mouth - difficult to get any flavour. Sweetish, but bland.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Fizzy, yellow pour with a nose of alfalfa grain and mown hay, a bit of maltiness well balanced with bitterness of noble hops, sweetness carries through. This was decent.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Although this beer is filtered, the nose is extremely breadsy. Smells like biscuit dough with hints of cereal grains. Decently balanced flavor. Light sweetness and a lot of yeasty bread dough. Lightly tangy with no crisp hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Watery finish. Odd how yeasty a filtered lager can be.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - FEB 18, 2007
Rating from Aofoxxy’s Labor Day Gathering ’06. Pretty sad eh? Just now getting to these. Nose of cereal and yeast. Pours a sparkling golden straw. The quickly diminishing head is fizzy & white with no lace. The toasty flavor is light cereal. The palate is light, dry and soft.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle. Straw body with a foamy whitehead. Nose-stale, light skunk, adjuncts. Taste-soapy, fruity esters, soft medium CO2, lime, apple, sharp CO2, light cereals, not mind blowing but not offensive. I’d drink it again.

joergen (24760) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a white ehad. Aroma of malts and fruits. Flavour of malts, fruits, caramel and cardboard.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Golden colour with a big white head. Malty, light skunky, grass aroma and a sweet malty, perfumed taste. Light body with a dry finish.

bhensonb (13206) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Clean sweetish aroma that is almost corn. Golden color with a temporary white head. Starts sweet, and the malt suggests corny grain. There is a nice hop bitterness though, and if the graininess were not so strong, it would be heading towards pilsener - a ways to go, perhaps. The finish is reasonably bitter with a sweet intrusion from sip to sip.

bottle. was at the store and saw this, and thought, what the hell. well, here’s what i get in return for my 1.89. extremeley opale yellow witha decent enough head. a slightly skunked aroma of sugars, and cherries with a heapin helpin of warm cornflakes. the taste is light honey, a bit of cooked green beans, or corn, or some veggy. pancake syrup like finish. it really ain’t as bad as i feared. i prefer it to some others, but will not repeat purchase.
