yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2011
Can. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, white head. The aroma is better when drinking it in Germany, but still decent, with pale malts, fruity and grassy hops and some hay. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with pale malts and hay in the back, finishing mostly bitter. Medium body. A decent beer I’ll try to remember to rerate fresh in Germany some day. 110516

TBone (12426) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 Bottled
Lager color, very small white head. Slightly skunked hoppy aroma. Malty, hoppy, with sweet tones. Medium-bodied, good pilsener with bitter finish. (5/2/7/3/10 2.7)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 06/2006)
Golden color, quickly vanishing white head. Mild plastic hop aroma. Fruity, sweet malts and weak bitterness in aftertaste. Quite boring pilsener, a bit like Budvar. (3/2/4/2/8 1.9)

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2000
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 A tough beer to rate. It runs almost directly average to its style. It has a light-to-moderate bitterness, some grassy-herbal hop notes and faint bready malts, both in flavour and aroma. It’s clean, slightly erring to the dry side in the finish. It’s not especially assertive, but nor is it especially mellow. It doesn’t seem to have a particular niche to my tastes.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2010
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal, wet cardboard, butter, and corn. Flavor of corn, cardboard, and grass with a mild metallic finish.

thewolf (11127) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 7, 2010
Can. [thanks mum & dad]
Pours clear pale golden with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, quite malty, some maize notes and citric hops. Medium carbonation, little bubbles, fairly dry. Flavour might be a bit thin, but there is actually a fair amount of bitterness. Malty sweet and the bitterness is light citric and quite flowery. Fresh and drinkable.
