mjg74 (2486) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Pours yellow in color. Not much head. Smells skunky and a little grainy. Has a little bit of a spicy cardboard flavor. Kinda of skunky and watery as well. Not a quality brew. Has a weird spicy finish that makes it drinkable. Not a really bad brew but it is pretty generic.

Somehow arrived un-skunked in it's green bottle. Honestly, that would have at least added something to it - it had some mellow bready malts, but that's all - thin, bubbly and generally hop-less. Give me a pils to quench my thirst. Color was a clear dark yellow with nice sized white head.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle. Crystal clear gold body with a thick foamy white head. Skunky nose. Taste’s like skunk, cardboard, CO2, corn syrup, and adjuncts. I don’t know if there are alot of adjuncts in this, but it tastes like corn syrup. Not bad, but not good by any stretch. Do yourself a favor and spend your $6.99 on something else.

Clear golden appearance, medium low head. Malty aroma, sweet taste, slightly unbalanced. Average Pale Lager.

Kita (974) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 11, 2012
Canned, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with decent frothy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops and some skunky / must notes. Sweet malty taste with biscuit and corn notes, finished lightly bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Typical and pretty average lager...

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Golden color, semi-skunked. Somewhat nutty(?) taste with a dry finish. On the watery side.

Jine (896) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2004
This is a rough rough beer. This is like if Rolling Rock was from Germany. Skunky smell and taste without having ACTUAL skunk smell and taste...just like Rolling Rock. Not good.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Deep yellow colour. Spicy, dusty aroma. This was pretty malty compared to what I was expecting with some green apple notes. Mild spicy hop finish. Maybe slightly better than Becks.

I found it better than that other pale lager, the one form Holland. Beefed up skunk smell. Tasted watery, somewhat malt assertive, generic.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2004
I opened the bottle with low expectations and after an initial moment of tastelessness this beer developed into a real class act. Minimal white head on a standard golden body. Clean, crisp aroma with light hoppy notes. Flavor is smooth and light with a nice crackle in the finish. After a few sips some malt character appeared and the beer became very pleasant, delicious even. Gives off some nice honey and fruit scents and a strong malt aroma as it develops. Overall, I think this is a good lager that deserves further exploration. I need a six pack and a few hours to work this one out.
