Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2005
A golden lager, with a little fruit nose, and a lot of malt taste. An average lager, not special good.

joergen (21507) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2005
Bottled. Yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of malts and hops, but not much aroma at all. Flavour of straw and grain with sour hoppy notes. Not very pleasant.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2006 The bottle poured a crystal clear pale yellow liquid with a rocky head that lasted less than two minutes leaving no lacing. The aroma was primarily of sweet malt with a dry-dirt nuance lingering in the background. The mouthfeel is light, smooth and refreshing while the flavor is unobtrusive. There is quite a bit of malt sweetness with well rounded clean hop bitterness. The middle is quite pleasant and the end lasts a long time with little to no bitter aftertaste. Quite nice.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) 5,5% ABV in my version. Fully golden, quite nice head. Nice body and a very pronounced bitterness that lingers on the palate. 150404

500ml brown bottle. Golden with small thin head. Malt aroma, malty sweet flavour, trace of bittereness late. Lots of carbonation.

thegreenrooster (3301) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2005
Pour is yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is more malty then most lagers. Flavor is bland malts and hardly any hops. Leaves a sweet honey aftertaste. Its probably slightly better than most eastern euro lagers but thats not saying much. Hey look a brown bottle!

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Thanks to tiggmtl for this one. Pours deep gold with white head. Aroma of honey malt, some hopcit. Tastes malty, with some hopcit and honey at the finish. Smooth, decent mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAR 22, 2005
LCBO bottle. Prerequisite Yellow and fizzy characteristics. Nice white head last and fades to a film leaving great lacing. Almost creamy mouthfeel which is disconcerting. Aroma is mostly grain and malt. Flavors include malt and slight hoppiness, runs on the sweet side. On the pale lager spectrum this isn’t half bad.

DerWeg (1525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2005
(Say it "Car-low-VAHTCH-ko.") Very refreshing and clean. One of the better recent "commie lagers" at the LCBO, Karlovačko is at least pure tasting compared to gut-rot Baltika, Warka etc. It may not stand out next to Budvar / Urquell, and its milder and paler than the good Polish Pilseners. But it is a good session beer for me - with a nice light grainy sweetness and subtle hop profile that for me recalls Chrysanthemums. A good, interesting macro by any standards.
