The famous Irish íLagerí is chock full of sulphur notes. Whatís the point? Lagering should reduce the sulphur. You may as well brew it as an ale if your going to put it out with these fermentation characteristics.

ElGaucho (2391) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Medium caramel malt aroma. Donít think Iíve ever seen so many carbonation bubbles in a beer. Itís almost like champagne! I expected a thicker head from the makers of Guiness; nevertheless a well above average head and fantastic, frothy white brussels lace! Like Boddingtons, this is a European brewmakerís attempt to appeal to the American, fringe, wannabe beer connoisseur. Unlike Boddingtons, this one has the redeeming quality of flavor.

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2002
Not as disasterous as some rival efforts (hello Fosters, Bud et al). There are actually hints of malts and hops here! Average.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Not bad for a beer they sell at the pool hall. I was feeling A-OK after about 4 of these. Somewhat bitter, overall clean tasting.

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2002
A good beer with an order of chicken wings at your local Hooters. Nice aroma (smells like a nice, strong American beer). A little bit more bitter than your average Joe (thatís a good thing) but not a paradigmatic íbitterí if you will. Still, this is the perfect beer for your average baseball/football sunday.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2002
Clean crisp, and smooth. Not bad for an American Standard. Good for every day stuff, not a special occassion beer.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2002
Decent lager. Nice golden color, very smooth, clean taste. Not very flavorful or extrodinary, but not too bad.

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2002
An average lager. Itís better than a lot of the piss type beers that you get in bottles (bud, sol etc.) but not as good as some continental, export strength efforts.

Steak (124) - New York, USA - MAY 6, 2002
Good fruity aroma. Golden color is nothing enticing, considering its so close to other íamerican standardsí. Very smooth and crisp, what a traditional lager should be like. Itís not bursting with flavor, because itís not supposed to.
