Ingredients: Malt; maize; hops.
A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production. Pale yellow appearance; moderately light bodied; mild bitterness.

Clear gold in color, the head is white, the lace minimal. Nose is malt, the front is malt, top thin, the finish is dry, acidic, lightly hopped, another utterly forgettable beer. Does not make my current 1000 beer master list.

You know, this is probably the best green bottled imported lager/pilsner I’ve sampled. Good head and lace, mild hop aroma very well balanced with malt. Pale golden color with the most insane effervescence I’ve ever seen for this stly of beer. A good drinking beer with no real flawsespecially good for the style(IMO) but nothing outstanding in the grand scheme of beers.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2002
A very light yellow color and no head. A slightly hoppy aroma and a hoppy flavor a little like Urquell but not as bitter. It has a quite dry taste.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2002
Very light colour with a white quickly dissipating head. Fairly disappointing hoppy aroma. Flavour is mild and quite pleasant, but perhaps a bit boring. The hops clearly dominate the malts. The bitter finish could be longer lasting. Note: I think I may have been drinking this beer at too low a temperature. It seemed as if the last glass was somewhat maltier (and sweeter), which IMHO improved the beer.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 I detect some malt flavor, but not much. Better than Moretti, perhaps. Some crispness, and the warmer it gets, the maltier it is.

Skunky aroma, smooth piney flavored palate. Surprisingly drinkable, although still nowhere near enjoyable.

sleepdirt (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 2, 2002
Sweet at first, then slight rotting fruit taste. Actually pretty good hop balance. Refreshing, that’s it.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2002
Clear and pale gold with a lasting white head. Light and clean on the palate; not unlike carbonated water. A little sour/tart in the middle, which I found interesting. Finishes with a sweet, ’white-wine-like’ dryness. Went well with my red sauce pasta.

legion242 (2266) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
Very pale with almost green tint and slightly opaque due to floaties; Head was billowy and white; Nose had a clean skunkiness that reminded me of Stella. Clean Saaz character. Thin palate. Little bit of perfume. Delicate.
