Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2003
The aroma is very hoppy and sweet. The color is dark yellow and it has a fine though collapsing head. The flavor is dominated by aroma hops combined with sweet malt notes and grain notes. It ends on a nice bitterness. A really good example of an international lager.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Thin foamy head with ok lacing. Ok carbonation. Slightly skunky hops aroma with some spices and a trace of yeast. Color is a light to medium gold. Flavor is mostly malt. Finish is quite nice. Dry and bitter. An ok lager that finishes better than it starts.

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Pours with a four-fingered white head that fades slowly and leaves good lace. A golden color. Nose has a hint of skunkiness maybe it is because of the green bottle. Starts hoppy/bitter, finishes hoppy and bitter. Very good carbonation. Light to medium bodied. $1.90 for 500ml.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2003
Big aroma out of the bottle. Gold colour with decent but inconsistent head and light lacing. Strong hop character leans towards a pilsner. Underlying sweetness. Better than average lager but not stellar.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2003
From the Sharp Edge European Beerfest: Kind of a thin watery lager. Luckily, my people are better at vodka then they are at beer.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Boring, light, one-dimensional beer. Metallic and bit too watery. I was hoping for better from the Ukrainians.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Virtually no aroma, grainy, industrial.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Golden color,well carbonated,small white head that faded pretty fast.Malty sweet smell with mild hints of hop's.Malty taste with a strange taste that almost seems a bit metallic,mild hopping.the after taste is mildly malty sweet with a slight hop taste.The after taste is hard to describe malty for sure but theres an almost medicinal side to it as well.Could just be a bad bottle.This is definately nothing special.
