brstp (201) - - OCT 9, 2007
Nice-looking clear yellow pilsner color, aroma of grass, dirt. Taste is clean and clear, a little brownish, thin dry mouthfeel but refreshing, German pils hops. Slightly bitter, overall a nice easy beer.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Lights straw, with a massive white head. Light malt aroma. Very light body, with a good balance of malt and hops. Very dry, with a quick finish.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Grew up with that stuff, hence I have a soft spot for it. However, it does not seem to travel wel. The graininess and hoppiness has dissipated and malts are at the forefront. There is some caramel now very pronounced and the finish is not as crips as it should be. Bummer. It is much better fresh in Germany, trust me.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2007
12oz bottle. Weak aroma of malt with a little hops. Med yellow hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is a little sweet and malty with a clean finish. Palate is watery soft and light bodied. No desire to try again.

DocLock (9494) - 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 (2686) - 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 (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - 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
