Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, - FEB 19, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 330 ml can at the airport in Mali. Well even bad for African Flag standards. I did not see the pour but it smells funny and tastes almost as bad. Palate is offensive. Big time drain pour.

This is one of the worst beer I’ve ever had to drink. Live in West Africa long enough and you won’t be able to resist trying it. I’ve done a blind taste test with Flag, Beaufort, Gazelle and Castel and I can always distinguish Flag without even tasting it because it has the slight aroma of aluminum. It has a slightly sour taste, and is not quite smooth. Taste varies bottle to bottle because of the formaldehyde.

Yo..if you’re in Mali, this beer isn’t bad. anywhere else, and it kinda sucks. sour smelling and bitter tasting, it will get you by in a pinch -like it has for me the last few weeks- but it will leave you looking forward to your favorite as soon as you can get your hands on it.-SNR

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle - country tasting - Kobehavnske Oldage, May 2006. Pale gold colour. Dull and skunky. Just about drinkable. Nothing else to say really. Thanks to Per for sharing.

Blond color. No aroma. Poor taste as every other Pale Lager. But… thanks to Per!

Ungstrup (29082) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
A pale yellow beer with a white head. The arom ais sour and malty, while the flavor is sweet malty with an underlying sourness probably from some sort of brewing cereal.

sunevdj (3130) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle at the "minifestival" at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Pours a clear pale yellow. Sweet with grassy notes. Dry finish.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Sampled at our own little ’Country Festival’ during Københavnske Øldage 2006.
Clear golden, snow white head. Sweaty aroma, bit of hop. Not that bad just pretty inunteresting. Grainy and citrusy with some bitterness showing in the end. Definately one of the better of the "festival"!

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Bottled: Pale yellow. Clear. White very small head. Grassy and sweet beer. Has some vague fruitnotes. Is boring. Tthanks to Per and Jeppe for letting me in on this tasting.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2006
[Bottled] Clear golden, no head. Light papery nose. Swetish, fizzy and bland. Paper dominates, otherwise it’s fairly clean flavourwise. No bitterness.
