pivnizub (9292) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2007
Fresh from the can: Golden coloured, small, quite firm white head; faint sweetish-fruity-grainy nose; moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, a bit sticky MF; finish like an average Kölsch....

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 750ml bottle. That oddly waxy aroma exuded by certain Greek tinned lagers. Silky smooth maltiness, with some gently smoky graininess in the finish. Bitter afters, but pretty dull without the spice. Not much of a fan of the style, and that nose is really putting me off. Re-rate 24/01/08. Smells like a n/a beer. Wholemeal, beans, burning rubber. Surprisingly pale and misty. Paper, grain, 1 part malt malt whiskey to 10 parts water. Honey. Pale malt aftertaste. Still not impressed.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2006
The body is a clear yellow/gold/straw capped with a foamy white head. The aroma begins on a bitter note, grasses and dandelions, and a soft cherry scent emerges followed by a bready malt. The flavor’s an interesting blend of sweet, sour, and bitter. It starts fruity when a soured malt enters the picture followed closely by that grassy bitterness. It closes on a sweet note, then leaves a dry, bitter feeling on the tongue. Not too shabby.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow color with a fluffy big head. Very hoppy, grassy aroma I thought, with some malt mixed in there and some spicy notes as well. Some cellar like notes in nose and mouth. The dominant hoppy notes gave it a dry mouth feel. Some fruit notes and spicy is present in mouth. Light bodied, with a slightly balanced bitter-sweet finish.

Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2006
(Bottle at La Gueuze, Paris, 15 Oct) Clear yellow colour with huge, firm, white head. Malty nose with fresh cereal aromas and grassy notes. Malty, clean and fresh taste with notes of tropical fruit, pineapple and grassy hops in the fairly dry finish. Refreshing and enjoyable.

imdownthepub (11378) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Bottled, 750ml. Yellow to orange, cloudy, short head. Light and thin flavours with a touch of banana and a hint of grapefruit. Otherwise quite a boring lifeless beer, quite disapointing, nothing hidden to search for, all very much single dimensional.

JK (4961) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2006
This is a very simple beer. It is a little bit sour, there is brett and lots of yeast. Some barnyard. The flavor is one dimensional and not as complex as the aroma. Cloudy orange and an impressive, thick and tall white head, with some sediment. Dry palate.

oh6gdx (22588) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, fluffy big white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, fruits, hops and cooked vegetables. Flavour is caramel, malts, hops and slight barnyardishness/earthyness. Dry and hayish aftertaste.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 Malty scent. Light, slightly grassy with a touch of bitter fruityness. Light, slightly roasty dryness. It’s balanced, but it’s also missing something. A bit simple.
