larsniclas (5953) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2003
Draught at Plain Kitchen, Gothenburg. Golden, a lot of bubbles and fine head. Distinct cereal aroma. A dry palate and a lot of carbonation. Some seet hop-flavour.

motelpogo (7188) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2003
tasted pretty stale but it was nearly a year before its use by date. faintly grassy and with slight vanilla but no hop presence and nothing to generate interest

fiulijn (16214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 2005-01-01, as Birra della Storia (Alpa snc), 4.8% ABV, 4-2-4-2-8=20
Blond color. Simple aroma: corn, vanilla, cereals. Ordinary Lager, with a raw cereals flavor and very light lemon. Quite strong bitterness.

Blond color. Honeyish aroma. Simple, but again the pleasant honey impression (and some malt, paper, straw). Better than the 150° Anniversario.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2003
There is something about this beer that I like. The mouthfeel is unusually full nad the malt notes come through quite well. I could certainly drink this as a summer beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2003
Really thin, with a sweet maltyness, some drying, lightly herbal hay/grassy hops, very light, with low bitterness, unexciting, but better than most.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Pours a very clear golden, with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, malty with a strange almost honey-like quality. Flavor is malty, similar to a dortmunder, with that strange honey flavor. Sweet, with a mildly dry finish. I wonder if my bottle was a little old.

radiomgb (2466) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2003
Gold in colour with a large white head and great lace. Slight aroma of hops and grass and a nice hoppy flavour. Finishes with a small bitterness. This was a good beer for a hot day.
