750 ml bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville, CA. Initial DMS, skunky nose, which dissipates quickly. Aroma has some booze, corny, grassy hop aromas. Smells a bit like a malt liquor. Mildly hazy yellow body with a small, quickly dissipating yellow-twinged white head. Metallic, lightly sweet, biscuity maltiness in the start and in the middle. Finishes a bit harsh and bitter with some ethanolic notes. Similar to a malt liquor, but this is more smooth and lacks the harsh fusels.

750. Beer is clear, light gold with a small, white, frothy, immediately diminishing head. Energetic carbo trails in the liquid.<P> The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate note of honeysuckle, light note of resin; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Light miscellaneous note of tin; swirl kicks up a light rotting corn/DMS note..<P> The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic with a long, lightly bittersweet, dirty-tasting finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.

Ernest (7243) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2007
(as Krait Prestige) Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Not bad, as these things go, but difficult to enjoy all the same.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2007 Ølfestival 2007. Nice 75cl bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Sweet with strong grainy aromas. Light alcohol notes. Kind of grassy hopsprofile. Medium carbonation. Dry and sweet finish. Doh, I thought I would get India when rating this one... only to discover, it´s brewed in Poland.

750ml bottle. Mildly haxy with a golden hue. Musty nose. Touch of citrus and honey in the nose. Lively and zesty. Sticky honey notes. Nice citrus flavor. Easy drinking at 8%. Wanted more effervescence. Mildly sticky.

imdownthepub (12910) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 750ml. Carbonated gold with fizzed head. Strong Eurolager with strong malt note, interesting without being that good, sweetish, cardboard. An awful lot of below average beer in one bottle.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2007
It’s a golden color with a huge white head. Aroma was pleasant, spicy and a bit floral. Taste was the same - mild spiciness and some good floral character. Definite grainy/malty backbone too. Very drinkable. This is very smooth, crisp and delicious beer. On tasting it you wouldn’t assume the doulbe fermentation, as it’s so smooth and crisp. It’s deceptive I tell ya. Be careful! Enjoyed at Tastes Wine Bar in the Highlands neighborhood in Denver.

bb (8314) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Pale golden beer with a big whitish head. Mineral, slight grass aroma. Some earthiness, fruitiness, sweet malt flavor, but little depth. Very carbonated. A bit of spice lingers. Spritzy.
