ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2005
Pale golden colour with thin white head. Malty aroma with some sweetness and a slight bitterness. Malty flavor with some sourness, all in all a boring lager.

Eructoblaster (3543) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
Bottle - 33cl. Golden body topped with a thin bubbly head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with strong and persistent skunky notes. Taste is mostly watery with light hoppy flavors. Ends with a short bitter finish. Horribly boring...

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2004
From Bottle. Im always doubtful about beers in clear bottles. It suggest there is nothing to protect from the light. This bottle was clear green, but the brew was less bland than I expected. The head was low and disappeared quicly, the body was pale yellow, but the taste had a bit more fullness than expected. A good average beer for all purposes.

caesar (6180) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2004

kyzr (1247) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Light color with large head which is gone in a matter of seconds. Not a lot of aroma to speak of. Light hints of hops with malt taking over. Very sweet, a nice summer beer. Shout out to my parents for getting me this!

rauchbier (3709) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle, DBF 2004. Gold, good white head and gentle condition. Low grassy hop notes in the nose, moderately malty sweet in the mouth but with some hope flavour creeping in and a sweet finish with a touch of lingering bitterness. Unoffensive and undemanding.

DrnkMcDermott (2961) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Bottled, as Lapin Kulta Premium Lager, in St. Petersburg, Russia. At 80 rubles, the most expensive beer I had in Russia. And yet its label seems to suggest adjunct grains. There is a very slight citrusy hop quality to it, but otherwise its just another "premium export" beer. The label says its brewed in Tornio, Finland, which may make it the northernmost beer out there.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#54).
Dark yellow beer, disappearing head. Weak hoppy and flowery aroma. Malty flavor, quite full for a pilsner. Not a lot of bitterness.
