Ungstrup (30392) - 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.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 66 cl) Nice golden colur with a massive, pretty head. Typical Italian lager: mild, some malty sweetness and not that much character. 180603

Bottled@O’malleys, Vasa. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grass, grains, some sweet malts as well as mild hayish notes. Flavour is quite much the same, but also has some slight rubbery notes.

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.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2006
UPDATED: APR 7, 2009 Bottled. Almost golden in color, without carbonation, but with a small white head on top. Weak but pleasant aroma, fruity and sweet. Quite fruity flavor too, with some malt and hops in it. Medium body and a lighlty hoppy finish. Decent beer. Rating: 5-3-6-3-11-2.8. (060720)

Bottle. (4.7%ABV) A slightly pale, golden beer with a dense, one finger white head. Grainy on the nose, with some fruityness. Slightly citrusy and with a hint of wet cardboard too. Grainy, almost sweetish and corn-ish flavor with fruityness as well. Some bitterness and a little wet cardboard in the background. Very watery on the palate, and lacking on carbonation. Short, grainy and fruity finish with some disturbing metal and a faint bitterness. I guess I had a weak moment the last time I rated it, this time I’m more on line with the other raters it seems. It lacks on the good stuff and has some annoying off flavors. Even though it’s available in Norwegian stores now, I don’t see a need to buy more of theses. (090407)

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
33cl bottle at La Scala restaurant, Dover. I was extremely surprised to find 2 scoops in this restaurant, this beer and Dreher. I was here on a works do. Gold, thin white head. Pale malt, sickly lager hop aroma. Some lemon. Slightly creamy in mouth. Finish has some nice hop, touch of bitterness. Slightly nasty.

Dedollewaitor (14645) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
66cl Bottle @ Italy. Pours clear and pale yellow with a white foam and lacings. Nose is mild of hay and grain. Overall weak and harmless. No off flavors. Medium to watery palate. Ends dry with notes of maize

TBone (14173) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Bottled (alc. 4.7%). Pale yellow color, small white head. Skunky grassy and grainy aroma with sweet corn notes. Fizzy carbonation. Harsh maltyness with honey, lemon and corn flavors. Unbalanced brew with odd flavors but at least it is not "just another pale lager" as I expected. Me does not like.
