maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2003
This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2003
MGC with a touch of amber colour. Small short lasting white head. Initially quite metallic with some fruity nectar malt aroma as it warms. Quite low carb, slightly oily mouth feel. Short stale bitter and light malt flavours. Artificial acetone alcoholo like finish and aftertaste. Real or below ordinary.

SilkTork (5252) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2003
Bottle. In the great beer quest, hunting over the world for fine beers, this is simply a tin shack by the side of the road. Metallic aroma and - oops, no that was me, I just farted and thought the beer had got interesting... Um, there is a bit of fruit in the flavour, something tropical - sort of mango like. Mmmm, that tin shack is becoming more interesting. Flat, watery finish with that metallic quality returning. A tin shack it may be, but inside there are comfy sofas and palm trees.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2003
Poured a pretty dense head with some lacing, has a lite malty aroma and is generally inoffensive.

dubs (117) - St Peters, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2003
Hmm. Pretty shabby. Very watery and bland... I was hoping for more after the black one.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2002
Low on aroma and taste, not quite as sweet as Aussie Standards. Why bother?

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2002
Slightly sweet maltyiness, minimal hop character, clean, edgy, thin, kind of boring, but OK.

motelpogo (6876) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 9, 2002
dead average. seems like they didn’t make the most of reasonably good ingredients

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2002
The label says ’naturally malted’ - what the hey? Unless they mean ’naturally’ in the sense of ’of course’, that seems like spacefilling bullshit. Anyway. It’s allegedly a Munich lager - has a bit of nuttiness, and is reasonably clean, but otherwise tastes like nothing at all, in a forgettably inoffensive kind of way.

Your typical bland, generic gold lager. Clean, but not much else.
