COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bottom fermented, light beer tickles the palates of beer-lovers around the world. Its aroma is mildly malty and its refreshingly sharp tang derives from balanced hopping.

This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white bubbles that left a fair lacing and alight yellow gold colored body behind. Nice mild malt hop aroma and a smooth mouthfeel with a lingering mellow flavor that I could not identify, but was nice none-the-less. Its flavor is a bit difficult to describe. There are notes of malt hop and barley in this one. It is nice and refreshing. Nothing bad about it, just nothing great either.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. Although the bottle I got from my fellow homebrew club member's basement was dated "Best by 3/01," it still bore up in pretty good shape. A sudsy head over the usual straw body. I can taste a little of the Dortmunder style here; certainly a little more malty sweetness than an American beer, without being sugary, and a hint of German hops. To paraphrase their own slogan; Nicht so “Gut” as a DAB, “Besser” than a Beck's.

Not too bad. Reminded me in many ways of other light European lagers. Sort of skunky. Poured a beautiful thick white head, aroma was definately malty. Very crisp finish. Good beer.

Pale yellow with massive white head, pressure delivery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Sweet malty flavour which seems to be a theme from this Brewery, a little acidic pehaps citric flavour but mostly CO2 gas. Bland and uninteresting.

Golden cristal clear colour. White cumulous head, lasts well. Aroma is very faint. Has a slight lemony twist with a balanced bitter hop scent. Taste is very balanced, with subtle sweetness from malt palate, balancing well with slight bitterness.

Color is a clear gold bordering on being pale, with a strong foamy white head thats about two fingers high with some divets and leaves patchy lace. Smell is faintly soft with a acidy tang of lemon-lime-like bittersweet hop. Taste is pretty intesting, its smooth, crisp, and clean with the hop standing out as a unusual lime peel, very bitter tang twing to it thats not strong but its there. Not like a belgian wit or hefe-weisen strength in taste. It remined me of a mild IPA with a bit more thinned out malt and hop. Its not bad, its more of a solid pilsner feel and taste, but as a pale lager its a bit short.

BLAND. Pale golden, fluffy white head. A good amount of carbonation. Sweet, malty aroma. taste is still rather bland with a light bitterness.

Sour, corn smelling, international standard lager. Sweetish and oily. Some maltiness.

Typical Euro lager. Grassy hop aroma and good balance of this with malt. Still reasonable.
