Light golden color with a white head. The taste is a thin grassy and earthy body. Watery and boring.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 Pours a light yellow color. Has a musty, skunky aroma. Seems highly carbonated. Flavor is watery and a little skunky. Very boring brew.

stouby (4064) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2005
Bottle, in Geneva. Yellow with white head. Aroma and flavor of malt and hops with a fine bitter finish. Well-balanced.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2005
Draught. Clear golden colour. Frothy head that wasn’t too tough. Non-noxious aroma is always a good thing. Very smooth..could it be nitro or just the beer itself? Mediocre and inoffensive.

Draft. I have to say I was suprised to see this beer rated so low en masse when I got around to rating it. I didn’t like the beer all that much myself, especially the thin palate, but found some characteristics to redeem it. The nose is grassy and grainy, like a lager should. Nothing in the flavor suggested the commercial faux pas of the macros (chemical flavors, acidity, sour aftertaste). In fact, I discovered some caramel, bready flavors with the neverending carbonation. My bias against lagers holds this one down, though.

Draft. eh... golden piss lager color...small head, ok lacing, skunky (in a good way) typical lager taste. All the Essex lads love this lager but hey I’m just not a lager guy. Plus this brew kinda sucks. No offense to you rude bhoys out there at the Red Lion in Romford.

Draught. Acidic aroma. Standard lager with a hint of acidity.

fraans (31) - ostend, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2005
Here in Belgium , this beer tries to compete with the likes of Tuborg and Carlsberg, but doesn’t get anywhere near. It’s not bad, but there are a lot of other and better beers around.

A decent pale lager. Big, persistent white head on top of a pale yellow beer. Decent biscuit taste with no bitterness, but no crappy cardboard flavour either. There’s better, but there’s also much worse.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Had this on tap and it truly sucked! No head and slightly skunked. One would think it would take effort to make beer taste skunky out of a freshly tapped keg.
