onystrom (1329) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2006
Clear light yellow color with small head. An ordinary pale lager and nothing exotic but the country.

MPA (866) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden with nice, white head - looks like it one would expect. Aroma is mostly lime and malts with some perfume notes. Malty and slightly grassy flavour. I had feared it would be less flavourful, but Iíd actually prefer this to many other lagers, though itís a bit too thin in body. Guess the average beerdrinker in Denmark would find this interesting...

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear, pale, pale gold with an average size diminishing white head. Man, thatís pale, looks awful. Aroma is very sugary sweet along with corn, grain and some essence of ass. Flavour is a very watery version of the aroma -- which is a good thing I guess, better a diluted version of that crap. Quite an unpleasant finish to it too. Light bodied. Total crapola!

oh6gdx (23708) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, small creamy white head. Aroma is maize, malts and a bit salty notes. Flavour is not much to talk about. Very watery and slight maizeishness and maltyness.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle. Super pale water-gold colour with a small white head. Bad aroma consisting of skunk, grains, and generally adjunct-laden. The flavour is plain and grainy - not too great. Actually itís pretty rough.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with the regular crew plus MDS at Gregís, courtesy of Harry. Very pale yellow (hardly any head). Skunk grain aroma - awful. Skunk grain/grassy taste - this is a really bad impersonation of a pale lager. Bad stuff all around, my first 0.5 in a while, but there is honestly not one redeeming quality about this beer to merit a mark.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pale yellow with a pillowy white head. Aroma - what the hell?!?!? Itís like rancid hay. Christ. Flavour - ah, itís not worth it. Thanks to Harry for sharing this exceedingly expensive swill with us and allowing us all to tick off a new country.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Extremely pale yellow, small quickly fading white head. Astringent wan grains and hints of alcohol in the aroma. Dilute astringent grains in the flavour taste like they are trying to make too much beer from too little malt. Thin watery palate. <P> ĒIím not gay, but I know Pet Shop Boys!Ē Ė Tupalev

scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - AUG 18, 2006
This is pretty good stuff! A little light, but very refreshing. There a lot of good flavors and qualities. An expiration date helps with a hard to find import like this. Beer snobs stay away ... this is an import lager that hasnít been scooped up by the yuppies ... yet. Try it, itís certainly more interesting than a budweiser. This is beach beer without a doubt.
