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

3fourths (9107) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2005
pale orange color. smells like skunky ashtray and moldy skunked old food. crisp flavor but really nasty too, skunked bottle oxidized flavor along with a pale grainy flavor that dulls the palate.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2005
Grainy sweetness light herbal/spicy hops and pils malt (mild DMS) in the nose. Clear golden body is topped by thin but lasting cover of white head that actually laces fairly nicely. Sweet creamed corn flavour is cabbagey in the finish. Not a lot of character to the otherwise bland, lightly sweet flavour. Medium-light body with fair to moderate carbonation and a slightly greasy texture that sticks in the throat. Can (Rahman - Mar. 2005).

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Light yellow gold, very little head or lacing. Aroma was lightly sweet and vegetal. Thin palate, mostly smooth, some carbonation. Taste was thinly malty with a light sugary aftertaste. I guess you’d want to drink this on a really hot day. Not offensive, but not memorable either.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2005
Had low expectations of this and was pleasantly surprised. No complexity but it’s a decent session lager. Poured a gold colour with a big head. Some buttery malt on the nose, and zesty hops. Creamy palate, light and quenching with a negligible finish. Buttery malt, minimal bitterness. (Bottle)

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2005
The liquid is clear and pale yellow; the large foam is made of big bubbles, it dissolves quickly into a finger thick head.

The smell is pretty strong for a lager. There is a rather simple, sweet flavour of malt and fresh bitter hops, white loaf (from the adjuncts?).

The carbonation is fairly average. Quite fresh…

The taste is rather mild and a bit creamy; the bitterness is low. There are notes of white bread, some diacetyl. The finish is fresh. The short and soft aftertaste got sweetness and some bitter hops.

In other words: Yet another adjunct lager. I’ve seen worse.

joemacaluso (119) - Prairieville, Louisiana, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Good beer, seems very much like a dortmunder style, not too sweet, not too bitter on the hops. Good beer overall, better than many standard German Pils.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Draught. A yellow gold coloured lager with an aroma of grass and glass. The taste is mostly gassy with a dull malt flavour. There are definitely worse lagers out there. I could be forced to drink this again. Score 2.0
Subsequent ratings scored 1.8 and 2.0. Average becomes 1.9

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 11, 2005
Nice medium gold. Standard issue nose, some malt influence, otherwise unremarkable. Fairly neutral palate, more malt flavours than one would typically expect from the genre. Slightly dry finish.
