Ernest (6148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Sold in the states as Ferdinand Lager Beer, 4.0%. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Body is medium to dark yellow. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. A rather unclean and flimsy rendition.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Pours dark yellow, medium head. Aroma is sweet, corny, fruity. Flavor of corn, dough, butterscotch. Slight hoppiness in the finish, but very lacking in bitterness overall. Smooth body. Well made beer.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Golden and flat in appearance with a white head that tries but fails. Butterscotch malts in aroma with grasses and grain. Flavor heads in a sweetly malted direction, then ends quick and sour. No contest between this and the immensely more diverse <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/benesov-ferdinan 12°

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Mine says Ferdinand Skutecne Pivo. Light yellow color. Full foaming head. Seaplant, skunk, algae, herb, nail polish, corn and grain in the nose. Clean, overly sweet flavor. Nicely balanced.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 As Ferdinand Vycepni Pivo Svetle.

The Lure:
Grainy, worty milkiness shyly peeks through the filtered light gold. A ring of head creates no lacing, this is pretty boring so far.

The Festivities:
Subtle sweet malt husks suffer from a severe lack of hops. Very "vycepni", this light lager has a well-brewed malt body which sadly is burdened by the near absence of any other flavor. I still prefer water.

Transcendence:
Dumbed down for the masses always frustrates me.

Cornfield (5448) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Not a bad beer, but a bit sweet for my tastes. Golden with a moderate white head, it’s got a grainy, sweet malt aroma with a hint of floral hops. It’s got a fairly good malt/hop balance and ends with a sticky sweet/bitter taste.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Light golden color with a tall fluffy cream colored head. Decent lace. Pale malt and bread, with light floral soap and hints of light smoke and minerals. The aroma does seem to improve as it warms. Quite thin and a touch watery in feel. Dry malt flavor start with a touch of sweetness to follow. Mild mineral and a caffeine bitterness near the finish. Slightly dirty in the middle, but quite crisp in the finish. Really only another pale european lager.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2003
Bottled. Golden colour and an unbelievably lively head, whatever that means...!? Bitterfruity aroma of Saaz-hops and yes indeed - wet sponge. Somewhat watery flavour but still oily with a great deal of hops, then ending with a moderate bitterness.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2003
Golden yellow with white head. Fresh aroma of hops and wet sponge. Metallic flavour with butter tones and dry finish.
