Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 27, 2003
Golden colour, clean appereance, good bubbly head, even if not really persistent. The flavour is quite malty and very watery. Not enough hoppy to be considered a decent pilsener.

PorterPounder (6214) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Rerate Medium gold pour, white head, good lace - neutral aroma. Some honey sweetness in the flavor. Clean even mouthfeel. Decent. Original 3.2 Pleasantly surprised for a cheap import. Aroma - not skunky. Nice clean golden appearance. Bit of a sweet almost honey-like quality to the flavor. Very thirst quenching after mowing the yard. Very smooth.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2003 This beer smells like Naty, which is not good. However, it tastes much better, with no aftertaste at all. I only bought it cuz it was cheap, and if my goal was to get drunk with drinking games, I'd drink it again.

Dorwart (2439) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Nice thick foamy head from the pour which lingers around for a little while. Light gold in color. Not much aroma (not skunky) and sort of bland, watery taste. Flavor is not offensive though and goes down smooth. Slightly sweet, clean finish. An ok brew that is not offensive but not that good either.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Full, slowly diminishing head, very pale golden color. The one outstanding feature is the Saaz hops aroma, which unfortunately does not make it into the flavor, which is weak, slightly sweet, and with a watery texture. It's not bad, but after the initial impression (aroma) upon opening the bottle, everything else was a letdown -- this is no Pilsner Urquell, but neither is it a Coors Light.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2003
Blond beer with a big head. Hop and a bit of flower in the aroma. Light, slightly bitter beer.

GiddyBoy (117) - USA - JAN 9, 2003
Budweiser + Heineken = Bavaria. This was nasty. It was skunky and pale. It had very little head and a nasty, weak taste. I did not even finish the bottle.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 7, 2003
This is one of the most accurate commercial descriptions I""ve ever read. There was a slight hoppy bite and it did tempt me several times throughout the day. Nothing special but I""d get it again if the price was right

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Sweet, lightly malty, and weak. Huge pile of billowy white head on top of straw liquid. Malt flavors were quite decent but the hops were nowhere to be found.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JAN 6, 2003
Had one of these in a bottle, came in my "Beers of the World" giftpack. Rich nose of toasted grain, alcohol, and a touch of fruit. Pours a pale golden honey. The large creamy dense white head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The balanced flavor finishes slightly sweet with no acidity. Subtle understated complexity for a lager. The very smooth and creamy body is light to medium with a nice dry finish.
