2004 bottle. Deep yellow/rust colored beer, with a poorly retained, bubbly white head. Aroma of mouse poop, rabbit poop, maybe some chicken poop or bat poop too. Flavor is HEAVILY metallic and very sour/skunked on the end (gee, did it occur to use a different colored bottle?). Just fantastically bad and went down the drain quickly. Medium light body, biting carbonation.

Tried this only because I recieved their pint glass as a gift. This beer came off much like a pilsner. The aroma was very earthy with a slight musk. The taste was full and malty. A decent enough beer but nothing special.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 A pretty good lager, kind of like a toned down version of the K64 Blanc. Faint tastes of lemon and wine, a good palate with a very slight pleasant grittiness. The lemon and grit reminds me of pulp, kind of nice actually.

This is not the filth. It is a beer to drink and it does the job quite well thank you very much. It will not be making acceptance speeches at the Oscars, but it will be washing down the lobster at the meal afterwoods.

Canned. "This’ll be another crappy canned lager" I thought as I opened it...looks ok, good gold colour, and a white head that lasts, and leaves a fine lacework. Aroma?..well...slightly hoppy, and slightly malty..hmm,not that great. Palate is smooth and slightly malty sweet, cant find any hops there tho’..not the "crappy" I expected, not a classic either..ok,I suppose for a S&N "produced under licence" lager.

A lovely coloured beer with a great taste, but its head lasts about 30 seconds and has a chemical aftertaste.

I’ve noticed that people basically just bash any lager they come across...I dont know if it’s fighting the mass produced lager craze or something else, but I am sure that compared to most lager’s I’ve tried this one isnt bad at all. Certainly more taste than the big three...a little fruity with a dry, clean finish. Not fantastic, but its a decent lager and worth a try...cheap at world market.

Pours a golden yeloow with a small head. Aroma is very skunky and flavor is rather weak.
