33oml bottle from my local East European shop. A shimmering pale gold beer. Soft, watery, bland malt of minimal character - some mineral quality perhaps. Noticable hop bite and finish, typical of East European lagers - though the malt is a little blander than normal.

Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with moderate head. Slightly sweet-sour barley malt flavor with a hint of hops. Not horrible, not great.

Bottle from Christian Nielsen, the Vampyre. [Odense Tasting.]
Well, here is some of the fluid which runs into the black sea, but maybe not this summer, when the degrees hit around 45 C. Good in the heat!

Slightly skunky aroma. Overall watery taste with a hint of hops. Not horrible tasting, but not much going on here.

Christian (11029) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Yellow with a small white head. Thin grainy aroma. Watery sweet flavour that actually leaves an impression of malt.

Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

Not sure if this is the right beer. My bottle (360 ml) said ABV 4.6 and my searches told me this was really a pilsener. But anyway: Pale golden color, small white head. Butterscotch aroma, fruity notes and toffee. Bready flavor, malty and with some hops.

Sweet mother of mercy, this was awful - maybe it lost something in the trip over but I doubt it could lose that much. The bottle procured from the local ethnic grocer poured out a predictable pale yellow with no head. There would be no lacing here. Smelled a little metallicy, vaguely hoppy in a miller lite kind of hops way. Flavor was just plain bad, mettalic a little sweetness but the malt and hops seemed absent must be largely adjunct in this bad boy. Carbonated dishwater best explains the feel of this one in the mouth.
