TheDog (573) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
Pale yellow color with white head. Aroma and taste of not so much. Notes of malt and a bit hops. Boring pilsner, even Rotal Unibrew makes better lagers.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2007
12 oz bottle via Malt of the Earth Beer club. This one is a clear golden blonde with a tiny head. Very nice plesant nose with bready yeasty notes. Taste is bready with some graininess and a midly tart finish. Body is light. Carbonation is high. This is tasty and easy to drink. A good Pilsner.

devotee (5) - TURKEY - FEB 28, 2007 does not count
It’s the most widespread beer here [Turkey] but not the best one. Leaves a bad taste within my mouth after drinking it. Still I’d prefer Beck’s :) But I couldn’t get why people were expecting so much worse from Turkey? Could someone pleeaaase tell me?

berkshirejohn (5160) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2007
50cl bottle from Tesco Pale straw with a minimal white head; lively carbonation; sweet hoppy aroma with traces of sulphur; quite full in the mouth, predominantly sweet with a touch of hops at the end.

bhensonb (12452) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Aroma of hop, corn? and chlorine? Something unusual. Clear and golden with a white head that isn’t and barely was. There is light lacing. Very light. Very light flavor, a bit sweetish, not really from corn. Medium mouthfeel, mild carbonation. There’s a bit of hop at the finish. Not your Czech pilsener, but head and shoulders above the typical American mass market lagers. I think it could replace Corona any day at the beach.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2007
This is the worst beer I have ever had. Drain pour after 2 sips along w/ the other 2 bottles I received in my beer of the month shipment. This stuff is nasty.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2007
Straw with an OK white head. Aroma has weak notes of malt and a hint of hops. the flavour has light sweetness and ditto bitterness, some floral notes and nothing else, really. Inoffensive, cold and wet. 1879

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow with mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of malts and some yeast. Flavor actually rather taste-less. A little hint of slightly sweet malt though. Watery on the palate. Short finish.

jerryballoono (32) - Urgup, TURKEY - JAN 10, 2007
Sampled in Cafe Fuzzy,Urgup 500ML returnable bottles @ 4YTL each. Highly carbonated straw coloured lager with small but long lasting head. Thin palate gives way to a bitter & slightly cloying aftertaste. Having drunk a lot of Efes pilsen here I have concluded there must be 4 versions of this beer - Draft, can (500ML), disposable (330ML) bottle & Returnable (500ML/330ML) bottle. There is a distinct difference between the latter 2 - the disposable bottles even put into glasses taste much thinner & sweeter. Alas most draft outlets have a low turnover in Urgup & quality is thus inconsistant & variable.
