A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Good head, not overly bubbly. Ambery colour. Aroma is thoroughly mediocre, kind stinky. Not strong, so it's OK. Not much taste, but there is a sour aftertaste. Nice and bubbly, kind of dry.

Dark yellow colour. Actually kind of flat looking. Reminded me of very good synthetic motor oil, and I think that put me off the whole experience. Aroma is certainl;y hoppy with piney. resiny hop. No malt. Also getting grassy, maybe lemony. Pretty one-sided though. Taste is a little bitter, a little dry. Sourish aftertaste which doesn't linger. Really, not the beer for me.

Thin white head and lace. some sweetness evident in the aroma. Bitter tasting, and nice malty flavour. dry finish.

Our bottle was clear, the one here is brown? A very well made lager, a very nice malty flavor with some subtle hoppiness towards the finish. As it warmed, an unsettling bitterness came out and tainted the beer.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Bottle. Transparent yellow, effervescent for a lager and with a henerous head. Smooth and not very skunky despite the trip across the pond. Crisp, clean, and drinkable.

Color is typical yellow transparant lager color with a decent white head. Taste is smooth with a good bitterness. Overall a nice lager.

Sparkling gold w/ good sized white head. Soft, fruity, sweet malt aroma. Thin, syrupy body. Watery sweet malt flavour w/ light hop finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Sparkling light golden color. The nose is fruity with some grass and a little bit of sweet malt. The body is candyish with some light grassy hops kicking in at the end. Boring and, I think, forgettable.

Nice, clear olden colour with an orangish hue and a big, fluffy white head. Very fresh and pleasing aroma with grassy, fruity and soft hop notes. Sweet malt in the beginning kicks off the flavour well, but it's begging for some more hops in the finish to really wrap it up nicely. Still a very decent and refreshing lager, though.
