joergen (20742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2005
Draught. Yellow coloured with a white head. Sweet malty and buttery aroma with fruity and hoppy notes. Malty flavour of fruits and berries with a harsh hoppy finish.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 9, 2005
Bottled. Medium foam of sufficient persistence. Limpid yellow color, fizzy and diamond. Light and lean scent. Watery and canted taste. Present bitter but little pleasant. Artificial finish and little persistent.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2005
Enjoyable and drinkable lager. Nice outdoors and a hell of a lot better than the rest of the crap i get at cafes in milan.

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2004
Golden coloured with medium head. Somewhat malty aroma. Quite thin but it has a nice grassy bitterness.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Nice looking, frothy white head. Clear, golden yellow beer. Mild, slightly skunky, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor fell right in line with the aroma, crispy, adjunct, slightly skunky with a somewhat soothing sweetness that led into the dry finish. Not offensive, but no way to celebrate your 150th anniversary.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2004
An orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is very light, but what i is there is malty with notes of straw. The flavor is boring malty with notes of straw, honey, and a sour sort of hops which gives it a dry finish - or is it the use of brewing cereal, that makes it sour? and the body is even thin. A totally boring beer.

JMerritt (1796) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Standard pale-straw in color. Very small white head is 99% diminishing. Luckily, I was able to get a non-skunked bottle -- the clean, yet faint aroma was of straw and honey. Lightly flavored-- corn, hay, straw. Slightly alcoholic in the finish. Not offensive, but totally uninteresting.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2004
Bottled, at Le Tris, Bergamo, Italy.
Golden lager with a thin white vale. Rustic hop aroma with soft lager malts. Good structure with moderate bitterness and good length.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
Nothing special. Golden, ok head. A little odd aroma, and flavor like all the rest.

jonas (5639) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2004
Malt, corn and slightly flowery nose. Golden color, small champagne bubbles, ok white head. Lightish body with a corn aftertaste. Reminded me a lot of danish pilsners (which also contain maiz). Incidently danish lagers seem to be quite popular in Italy - I have to investigate the dynamics of this one day.
