Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2003
Found it again in a bottle here after bitter (actually not really) memories on tap in the old dart. This beer is one that stirs up memeories of a forum discussion by Ringo about local crap being better than foreign crap. At least on draught it is fresh, even though highly dumbed down for mass consumption. The bottle doesn't give much more but for a slight improvement in hop aroma and flavour.

gold, small white head. a thin, sweet lager with very little in the way of hops or anything redeeming.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2003
Draught. Clear light golden body, with generous carbonation supporting a medium to large white head (medium if served in the UK large on the continent). Softly balanced hops v malts, producing an easily drunk beer. Can be found in most high street shite pubs, try to avoid these examples as their not a fair representation of the beer. Most Parisian bars do a better job of it.

This is my good-average blond beer. It's perfect for everyday mood. You can eat what you want with it, it always feels right.

No head. Slighty bitter taste with an unpleasant aftertaste. Skunky aroma.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2003
Golden with a small head. Can't find much in aroma, maybe some sugary malt? Light-bodied and watery with some plastic and sweet flavour. Ultra-bland.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2003
Clear, deep gold little to no head. Skunky but with a light green bottle, what would I expect? A very mild sweetness with slight bitter finish. Nothing to get excited about.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 Bottle. Golden with little head. Hardly any smell. Light taste but some malt to balance the bigger hops of the aftertaste. Nice body. Obviously not the most natural of beers nor the best. But as an easily available macro at a fair price I have no complaints. I'd drink this when not able to get my preffered pilsners/lagers. Re-rated it and expected it to go the same way as so many in the past. Dropping grades. But no, I probably like it better, for what it is, now. Decent, balanced mainstream lager.
