Slightly bitter & skunky but interesting none the less. Not for the average joe but hey that’s a cool bottle.

A dusty spider web which caught some white grapes and some malt…A skunk once got caught in it I think…And a chicken too…

A tasty lager and a cool bottle. Definately one of my favorite European lagers. A good one to use for introducing your MillBudCoors friends to real beer.

Good, smooth, has a bit of character for a macrobrew. Nice clean finish. Beats Heineken hands down.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2002
Aroma hoppy and a bit husky, but not bad. Color is a medium-gold with white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves some latticed lace behind. Countenance is decidedly on the light side: low carbonation (in itself a distinguishing mark) with nicely hopped taste but little malt contribution. Slight tang in finish that lingers in an unflattering way. Still, better than any American macrobrewed lager out there.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2002
Very low carbonation. Watery. Like a Danish discount pilsener.

Bierlieber (49) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Beats a Heineken, falls short of an Urquell. The swing top pints put it above any massed produced north German lagers. For the most part solid (if you’re partial to grassy skunk), great with a grilled steak.

bigal9699 (152) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Fairly decetn imported macro-brew. Crisp taste, but as usual, leans towards the vegetal and skunky side. Gotto love the bottles!!

Green bottle = skunky. Much better if you can find it on tap. Have never tried the 5L mini-kegs.
