Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Light hoppy nose, some underlying bread malts. Golden body, small white head. Clean malty flavor, with a light hoppy note.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 The Lure:
Dark golden hues offer barely any head retention. Sweet honey and pear fruitiness remain subtle. Aroma and appearance are largely deficient in this bottle.

The Festivities:
Honeyed maltiness builds into a slick rotundity which grew on me. A nice back bitterness of hop resin appreciates the minty herbal quality which precedes it. Sadly filtered, this is a good bohemian pilsner, but there is absolutely nothing special about it. Well-made no doubt, but very tame.

Transcendence:
Beware of those who call themselves giants.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Nice full golden colour with a fine head. Fatty, full body with some malty sweetness and a nice hoppy aroma. The Krakonos brewery is somewhat historic since former president Vaclav Havel worked there in 1974!

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2005
An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is very nice: spicy combined with caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of spices.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2004
Glodblond lager with fluffy head.It has a hoppy aroma with a floral touch and a mild caracter. The taste is medium mild with a dry touch of hops and a good bitter afthertaste.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2002
Finally, the moment has arrived when I get to taste Mr. Pogo’s favourite beer. And it’s a good un, although nothing from outer space. Combines the big, soft, almost sweet floralness of Budvar with the fat maltiness and bitter bite of Urquell - which is a good combination. If the rich gold colour with a touch of green, or the head that forms faces and other strange lumpy shapes aren’t enough to get this one 5 for appearance, there’s the label with the huge gnarled and hairy old testament dude on the label holding a foaming mug of the stuff and glaring out at the mountains.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Hard to get hold of and disappears very quickly. only really worth having on tap, where it normally displays a massive and lasting splotchy head, peachy saaz aroma and loads of bitterness
