Booooring. Typical lager - but lsightly better than average. Certainly better than American lager.

Zing! Crisp, clean. Goes down WELL. Can have one of the most unruly stanky sewery stenches around, but not detrimental to taste for the most part. Nice dry aftertaste with a bit of a fine malty grain flavor. Everyone I know feels obligated to keep the stopper bottles. It’s a nice gimmick.

I wasn’t even lucky enough to get mine in a cool bottle (but I was lucky not to get a skunked one). Typical Lager attributes. Dry flavor with minimal hops.

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

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Plain cereals and some dry straw... Lightly honeyed sugars underneath it all...Very drinkable and not evoking concentrated syrups or anything... In the can, at least, this is a drinkable barley malt-laden beverage...

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.

Very low carbonation. Watery. Like a Danish discount pilsener.
