pivo (2566) - GERMANY - NOV 21, 2002
Typical lager nose, light gold color, huge foamy head. Apple taste, no bitter. Medium body, round mouth, artificial aftertaste.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Skunky sweet nose. Golden with a medium rocky head. Very bitter and nothing else.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2002
I would drink this over Bud and any mexican beer, for what it’s worth. But that’s not really saying anything.

GiddyBoy (117) - USA - NOV 15, 2002
I didn’t like it. It was skunky. It had a very bitter finish too, which was not appealing. It is still better than most American standards.

PorterPounder (5540) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2002
Slightly skunky aroma, thin, lacy, white head. Very dry - so much so that it leaves a bitter aftertaste. Not too much flavor to this. May be good with sushi - but by itself - unimpressive.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2002
it wasn’t all bad the best was that it came in a 2 liter bottle years ago and they had a dragon head that you put on after you took off the cap and the beer flowed through the mouth of the dragon. a neat gimmick but it still doesn’t help that it’s a run of the mill flavor and just doesn’t have much going for it.

The fav from Japan has many qualities that mirror American Pilsners. It is sub-par overall.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2002
Nice head. Clear colour. Crisp Dry taste with a Pilsner like hoppiness. Not great but very nice accompaniment to some hot wings.

Nothing special about this beer. Dry beer is not really my type, maybe.
