UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 The bottle fucking kicks ass. Heineken with extra hops is my assessment. Pretty tasty and has a certain thickness that I was not expecting. Skunky, but not skunky in a nasty way. It's part of the flavor if you can believe that. Tastes like lots of cereal grains in this one. I know people who don't like it because of the skunkiness, but I don't particularily mind it at all. I'm sure it would be outstanding on a hot summer day. I would buy it again if it was about half the price it normally is. I like the stuff, but unfortunately won't buy it again because of the price. Ok, MAYBE I might try some again, but it sucks to pay so much for this! OVERPRICED! And a bit bitter.

Pretty good Euro-pils. Bit hoppier--with grassy notes. Still, it is refreshing.

despite from the bottle, i find this one a little to ordinary.

Skunky, grassy smell. Straw colour, foamy head. Grassy taste, bitterness in the after taste. Good carbonation. Ordinary.

If it wasn’t for the pine needle-flavour in the finish this would have been an avarage lager.

Well carbonated beer with a very hoppy aroma and flavour. Overall an average lager.

Oh my god, what a cool bottle! Oh my god, the beer isn’t as good as the bottle. Okok, I don’t want to be too harsh, but it wasn’t waht I was expecting. Tasted a little bit like a Heinikan (sp), but bithout that metallic bite. Considering that particular fault of heinikan is what keeps me away from it, I could drink this beer as a very good alternative. Would buy it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

slightly skunky aroma, average lager, very ordinary, wish they put as much work into what goes in the bottle, as the bottle itself

An average lager. Neutral aroma. A bit fizzy but ice-cold it is refreshing. Beautiful bottle. Overpriced!!!

Not really very good at all. I always saw the bottles when I worked at a bar and figured that they must be great. It was a great advertisement, but sadly that is all. The beer had an off-flavor and simply put is not good. The amber is quite a bit better, but certainly not great.
