Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense. ABV was 5%, like the brewery website says. Very nice Saazer aroma, flowers and honey, some fruit too. Reasonably well balanced flavour with a tolerable maltiness and decent hops which linger through the aftertaste.

Nice Pale Lager! Golden body with a creamy long lasting head. Perfect bitternes and sweet hopes. God aftertaste. I had this one in Croatia.

On tap at a beer garden in Prague. Bubbly and malty, pretty straightforward and plain, even cloying by the end.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Drinkable. Gold with a sudsy head, the aroma is sweet grainy malt with a syggestion of hops. The flavor is malty, a bit too sweet for me, with a light floral hop finish.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
Golden, slightly hazy. Sweet yeasty finish. Not bitter enough. Fruity flavour with hints of banana and prunes. Quite unpleasant in this kind of beer.

Ungstrup (29956) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
[At Křbenhavnske Řldage 2005] A golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malty, and the flavor is also sweet, but this time very malty, leading to a dry hoppy end. A very crisp fresh pilsener.

Deep gold with plenty of carbonation. The head is thin and white. Aroma is deep malt with some dirt and slight flowers. The taste is full with some flowers and sweet honey. Hints of bread. This is nice for the style. Best by March, 28 2005.

Frank (3098) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Pours a nice golden with a soapy looking head. Nose is mostly toasty malt with a hint of butterscotch and caramel. Despite the nice nose this comes across rather thin and weak in the flavor department which is too bad really since the nose is actually quite nice. Just a hint of caramel sweetness with gentle but somewhat assertive carbonation. A kiss of hops in the finish rounds things out well. A little more of everything and this would be great. I think that this would qualify as a "lite" beer in the states and it’s one of the most flavorful examples of such that I’ve tasted.
