Again the green bottle can condemn this beer unless found in an unopened case/box. When at its best it is a very mild and pleasant pilsner beer with a good aroma and a full-body flavor. It is one of Austria’s best pilsners, although increased production and distribution in recent years may erode its quality as with other classic beers.

Canned. On the very sweet side, not a hop king by any means. I am amazed why they did’nt make a beer with this name more well hopped!

Lubiere (11225) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
A light golden pils with a collapsing white head. Strong skunky aroma due to green bottle, with light grassy malt following. In mouth, a clean fresh malt with a nice german hop finish, lingering and decent. Bought at SAQ for 1.95$.

Boutip (5195) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle: Poured a golden color pils with a nice foamy pure white head with good retention. Aroma is slightly skunky which is not surprising considering the fact that it came in a green bottle and the brewery is probably 4000km away. Taste is also skunky (but not enough to covered the whole taste) with a nice hops finish. This is probably ten time better when pick-up fresh at the brewery and It is just a shame that they export this in green bottle.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle at RFD Washington ... bright yellow with a thin top. Corny aroma. Classic German pils style although a little starchy. Good pilsner.

johndoughty (4399) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2006
Golden with a slight edge due to carbonisation.Not too bad but it does distract from the enjoyment of drinking this one.Dry initial taste that leads to a gentle sweetness. Quite a reasonable pils with a classy label.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Bottled - Criterion Leicester. A blonde coloured beer with a nice whitish head. The aroma is sweet and lagery with some grassy hops. The taste is quite thin but there’s some sweetish malts and noticeable hops. Tasty, clean and drinkable if a little short.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Clear pale yellow colour with a weak head. Aroma of saaz hops, also malt and corn. Crisp flavour with notes of hops, and little fruity. Ends up dry and bitter, very average for a pilsner.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Clear yellow color with a thin white head. Sweet corn and honey aroma. Flavor of light honey with some corn aftertaste.

Bottle. Pale beer with a steady white head. The aroma is yeasty and malty and the flavour is malty, yeasty and dry. Overall a pleasant beer.
