DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 4, 2005
(330 ml bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Grainy, lightly sweet, and quite grassy, this beer smells like it might have some promise. And the flavor makes good on that, presenting me with a pleasant, very grainy- and grassy-tasting beer. Light bodied, but reasonably clean. Medium straw in color with a slight haze. Size, retention and lacing of the off-white head is average across the board. I thought this would be a really crappy imported lager, but this has been all right.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2005
Can (500ml). Okay, here goes, another pils. Poured glowing very pale yellow with a big finely foamed white head that dropped visibly, leaving a scum-like lace behind. Aroma oddly like fresh-picked mint (tangy, sweet, almost musky), with some sour grain notes - very odd. Taste is of straw, wheat flour, sugary malt - eventually finishes very bitter-harsh, not like hops, more like burnt straw - to the point of leavingan unpleasant lingering aftertaste. Harsh, brackish, thin mouthfeel. Too bitter (yet also too sugary) for me, but it has more going on than most EuroLagerCans, even if it does get very vegetal as it warms slightly

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
Clear pale gold colour with fast fading rockiy white head. Mild malt nose with slight yeast hints. Bitting bitter taste with mild bitter finish and mild malt undertones.

haukur (1309) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 20, 2005
a decent pilsner, golden looks, fastly dissapearing head, medium crispyness with some faint hops. Decent, or just more

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2005
I drank two of these straight from the bottle, but Im guessing: Golden with a white head (correct me if Im wrong). Malted aromas, low in caramel, with herbal hops, metal & sweat. Nicely balanced flavor ending on a light, hoppy note with pencil shavings (?). A good pils... an even better "premium lager".

SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2005
rated this one for free. pale yellow, lively carbonation, light bodied, finishes bitter but lacking much character. very quaffable, however, would make a decent session beer, but i would imagine that this is a little on the pricy side in this country, but it wasnt for me this past sunday.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 1, 2005
Compact and enough adherent foam. Yellow gold color, limpid and discreetly bubbly. Bitterish and pleasant scent, light malty and hoppines notes. Light taste, slightly watery and not much prickly. Soft and bitter end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, golden pilsener with a very handsome, tall and retentive head. Lovely malty character and a very fresh, aromatic bitterness. Really "Spitzenklasse" 250100

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with white small bubbly head. Hoppy nose with vegetably hints. Hoppy flavour with some vegetably and malty notes. Too much hops for my taste though.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 20, 2005
Medium gold in colour with medium carbonation. Light malt and DMS aromas. It has some very unplesant flavors: metal, coarse vegital hops, and paint thinner. Thin bodied too. Definitely the worst of the German lagers that Ive had recently.
