Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Slightly skunky, corn nose, yellow, fizzy. Has somewhat of a hop kick at the finish but mild. Uneventful.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 25, 2002
Nose of pine resin, perfume, hints of smoke, charcoal, fruit and flowers. Not exactly appealing, not exactly offensive. The brew pours a cloudy light honey amber. The large fluffy white head has no lacing and is mostly diminishing. The brew starts neutral with a sweet middle that gets sweeter at the finish. The light and creamy body is lively to the point of being almost fizzy with a metallic stickiness at the finish. Not something I would buy again. It clashes with my tastes.

Hokkaido dortmunder. Not bad, but lacks a certain something.

beerguy101 (5340) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Light gold color, large head. A lighter bodied lager style beer. Nice mild hops. Milder malts with some sweetness. Good balance. Nice full flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Smooth taste. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Clear light yellow, fizzy, foamy head, grainy aroma, metallic taste.

Ouch. The alcohol really shines through on this one. Not my thing at all. It seems heavily adjunct-laden and nasty.

Bolt (117) - Boulder Creek, California, USA - JUN 5, 2002
Nothing special for me here… Too much of a heavy malty taste up front followed by an unfavorable bittersweet finish.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 8, 2002
22 oz can. Typical golden lager appearance, but with decent head; nose is somewhat unpleasant when just poured but softens and ’freshens’ a bit into a slightly farm-like aroma; yes, new grass and the barnyard is better than many beer stenches out there! Flavor sweetish, crisp, just a tad of hops at the end. Not bad, but not worth $3 either.

Ernest (7030) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, light density of tiny particles. Aroma is lightly malty (light bread, grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a hint of chalk. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.

Nice, clean lager with a small bite...good with spicy foods. The can is a good selling point and the beer was worth 2 bucks. However I wouldn’t write home about it.
