Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Straw, huge head. The aroma has notes of malt, corn, straw and a bit of hops - and it signals: boooooring.... This impression was fully met in the flavour, that is uninspiring and unbalanced. Life is too short for beers like this....

Poured a big thick fluffy white head. Chemicals ftw, eh ? Golden colour, lively carbonation. The nose is a bit stale, malty and honey with hints of wine. The taste is... bad. Cardboard, hints of grapes, some hops, a bit oily, but somehow... dry. Almost mouthpuckeringly so. Yet another crappy gimmick beer. How nice.

FrankJohansen (3617) - Sabro, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle. Clear olden colour with a small fizzy head. Pretty mainstream boring pale lager.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a bubbly mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of grass, bit malty and fruity. Flavour is grassy, some malt, fruity with some lemon. Dry bitterish finish. A quite refreshing beer.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A dull pale lager with a light, dirty bitterness of no distinction or character. Clings to the mouth unpleasantly. Slight whiff and taste of corn. Unsatisfactory.

Wacher (129) - Ĺrhus C, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Clear yellow. Medium head. Hoppy nose with hay notes. Sweet hoppy flavor. A bit watery. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nothing special.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Dark yellow colored, little white head. Lively carbonation. Fruits, lemon and esters in surprisingly strong aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also fruity with corny lemon touch, some carbonation also there. Some cardboard in aftertaste.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Yellow-gold, modest head. Offputting aroma of vegetables (cucumber, celery) with corn syrup . Palate was much the same with an unpleasant sharp finish, almost sour. I may have had a bad bottle.

EithCubes (5618) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle. Floral hops and simplistic malt in the nose. Clear yellow body with a creamy white head. Hay, hops, and surprisingly sweet maltiness in the taste, light bodied-watery but somehow more substantive than most standard pale lagers. Some straw/honey and only the slightest wisp of bitterness (there’s more apple there, for example). Pretty good for style, but that’s not saying much.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle. Large white fizzy head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, transparent, carbonation, and a yellow golden hue. Nose was malty, sweet and citrusy. Flavor was sweet, somewhat harsh, watery, thin, somewhat malty and hoppy, and fruit. Overall weak tasting. Smooth, watery and thin palate. Light body. Not impressed.
