drpimento (2771) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2010
I don’t know what it is, but most of the beers that I got at a nearby quickmart today ahve been on flat side. This one poured with a large, foamy, frothy, fluffy white head that soon faded and some lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is at first, skunk ( second whiff saw that waning), malt, and hop, plus some grain. Flavor’s like aroma. Body is good, but a little on the flat side. Finish is short to medium in length and forgettavle.

FatPhil (12190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2010
500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, AugustFest2010)
5- Smells like it’s made of beer ingredients, but there’s a hint of something nasty and plastic or chemical lurking in there.
2 Pale, brief fizzy head
5- One microsecond after detecting the malts, I detected the paper. The bitterness was very much in the vein of hop extract rather than fresh hops.
2 Thin and fizzy. Left an unpleasant taste in the mouth.
9- When mjs told me that ’Edel’ means ’noble’, I jokingly said "so this will be like a ’premium’ lager, I didn’t realise how close to the truth that would turn out to be. This is macro swill. Fortunately it’s German macro swill which is better than Finnish or Estonian macro swill!

(Bottle at One Pint Pub Augustfest ’10) Poured very pale golden and clear. Head was medium sized and white. Aroma was mildly grassy and bit metallic. Palate was almost medium bodied with medium carbonation. Falvours were mildly grass, bit of grain, malts, carboard and bitterness. Afterrtaste was mildly bitter.

Bierkrug (2130) - - AUG 20, 2010
500 ML bottle in Germany. Is a very pale yellow, almost looks like an American Pale Ale. Head is small white but dense. Aroma is a normal Pils hops with a hint of corn. Taste is pure to form and rather weak. Palate is weak as well but nice. Ends a bit metal like for me but again I am not a Pils fan. For me better than most pils.

Bif (1833) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Beer has a full golden color with a light head and good carbonation. Aroma was mixture of grain and hops. Taste was refreshing and a bit on the dry side. It finished with a smooth pleasant feeling. Great beer for more than one or to enjoy with friends.

asheft (2825) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2010
[bottle] Once past the skunk (invariably from the green bottle), the aroma is a nice sweet malt, yet crisp with fresh, noble hops, and an elderberry honey accent. Clear straw-gold under quickly dropping white fuzz. Crisp malt flavour that is well balanced with hops bitterness. There could be a bit more herbal, hay hops flavour, though. Light body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
