JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 1, 2006
Pours a sickly yellow (ever-so-slightly green). White foamy head and big suds. The smell is barely there... I had to strain to detect a bit of grainy malt, some apple cider, and an unsual solvent aroma. The mouthfeel is on par with carbonated water. Nothing to write home about, nothing to get upset about. The taste is astringent and bitter, a pilsner through and through, with the bitterness overpowering initial attempts to decipher the taste. A bit of honey can be noticed, along with a citrus tang in the aftertaste. Other than that, hops and bitter, baby, hops and bitter. In general, not a good German Pils. Poor King Frederick August III of Saxony, I hope he had better drinks than this to console his abdicating soul...

AjaOki (6) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006 does not count
I bought a few 500 mL cans of this. The only thing really giving it much of an appearance is the massive amount of head it has. Otherwise it’s pretty standard looking. There’s nothing overly unique about this beer, I like it though. It’s one of the better lagers here, not that we have a great selection.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2006
Big shiny white lasting head over yellow body with ongoing carbonation. Light aroma of flour and chalk with a touch of hops and some acidity. Taste is lightly acidic, clean, with well-defined hop profile and clear maltiness, faint apple notes. Dry aftertaste with a touch of hops and some cardboard. Not bad, but could be better. (0.33l bottle.)

Appearance is light yellow, clear with a faint white wispy head which dissolves quickly. Light hoppy aroma. Flavor is grassy and a bit cardboardy with light biscuit and wisps of fruit.
