Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Light golden yellow with large off white head. Nothing to substantial in the aroma just alot of grass in the field. Not alot of body with minimal bitter and a grassy flavour. Nohing special

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2003
Pale yellow-gold with minimal white head. Grassy aroma with a bit of hops and a metallic edge. Watery mouthfeel. A bit of malt sweetness in the flavour, and a bit of bitterness in the finish. A bland, average lager.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2003
Pale golden color, head quickly gone, but leaving some lace. The nose is slightly grassy with some hops. The body contains some bitterness following a rather intense spritziness. Finishes with a light bitterness and some accompanying grassiness.

Jayb0 (1052) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2003
draft - a decent lager. Clean, slightly hoppy aroma, spritzy. Thin but fairly dense head. medium body, high carbonation, good malt/hop up front. Weak finish.

haukur (1344) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 14, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 surprisingly thin, but with a nice lasting head, a decent lager but noting more...

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Yee-haw -- a chance to savage the French! A little skunky, though not bad. Lager-tart and a little fruity. Very carbonated, but a fair mouthfeel, tough there were some musky notes in the finish. Interesting bottle. Not bad, but not distinct enough to buy it again.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 Rerate Revisit after 10 years. Crisp and clean, about par for a Euro lager, tad bit of minty skunk, but not a drainpour.Original 2.4 The aroma is a bit skunky and wet newspaper like - probably due to the green bottle (which has an unusual and interesting shape). Appearance - almost see through light golden with little to no head. Flavor has a bit of a hoppy bite to it with some underlying sweetness. Kind of an odd mouthfeel to it - slightly stinging. Not a bad lager overall - but the French should stick to wine.

PhillyBeer2112 (2540) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Pretty stinky at first whiff (green bottle) but the mercaptans wafted away leaving a light malt and noble hop aroma. Gold but empty looking with thin yet firm head. Surprising body and round sweetness! Underhopped, esp in the finish, leaving a lingering sweetness, while too slight to be cloying, is too much nevertheless.

KzooJeff (4) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2003 does not count
Very smooth - carbonation comparable to sparkling wine rather than other beers. Good balance of hops and sweetness. Good with food.
