DocLock (8599) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Gold pour with 2-finger whitihs head. Aroma is hopcitric, some pale malt, mild metallic notes. Tastes crisp, with hopcitrus, some pale malt notes, and some thiols. Not very good, IMHO, and certainly overrated by a lot.

radiomgb (2521) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
Golden-yellow in colour, fizzy white coloured head, quickly dissipating, no lacing. The aroma is grainy, some pale malts, herbal and grassy hops. The flavour is crisp, lots of grains, cereal and bread, herbal and lightly floral, moderate sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes lingering, moderately bitter and dry. This is actually not that bad, one of the better imports at the LCBO.

500ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario for $2.25.
Purchased on June 19, 2007 and opened on July 1, 2007.
Best before February 27, 2008.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Re-rate 6/18/12: Bottle. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma with lots of cereals, bread and hints of herbal/grassy hops. Grainy corny flavor with a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Kinda drinkable, but not good. Not fresh enough (this bottle is a year old) so the new score is not calculated. 3/3/4/3/7=2

Draught. Golden color with a pretty white head. Malty aroma. Bready, malty flavor with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8

ekstedt (6032) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Can from the Shell gas station near Frankfurt-Hahn airport, Germany. Clear golden with white head. Weak malts, some herbal hops. A bit watery, good bitterness. A mediocre German pilsener. Rating 5/3/6/2/9. Draught (8th June 2008) at the pub K65 in Berlin. Oviously much better draught, I gave it 7/3/8/3/14. Perhaps also due to having it at a pub in Berlin on a hot day.
