Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2005
Clear, golden yellow with a little off orange hue, with only a hint of ring around the glass. Decent hoppy smell, that must be Saaz, or a close cousin. Taste: Most definately grassy, with the aftertaste of baby radish shoots, or maybe those wheatgrass shots you can get in those yuppie juice bars. Ok maltyness, aftertaste lasts long, and sticks to your tongue, I like that.

maupie (926) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2004
This beer has a yellow body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is moutig.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. Last of the evening after drinking all day, had it on the train home to london from Brighton. Not bad for a lager i have to say, nothing much happening, but there are some tangy citrusy hops, and it finishes dry and medium bitter, it was quite a pleasant, innofensive beer.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2004
MCG with a large white head. Mild malt aroma with some nice hoppy floral notes. Hoppy, sweet refreshing flavour. Medium bodied, OK. Would be better on a hot day than a cold english evening though.

RichardGretton (4564) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2004
Pale golden lager with a dry and strong aroma. The flavour is very dry and bitter. Overall a very nice beer.

leaparsons (9499) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2004
Golden with a small head. Aromas are lemon, grain and hops that are as fresh as cut grass. Flavours are zesty with citrus and green hops. Refreshing with good bitterness to finish. Good stuff.

my least favorite. this really tasted neutral and bland. it has the crispness of other s-n beers, but absolutely nothing special. too light for my tastes

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Blond color. Crispy aroma, a bit malty and lightly smokey. Some nice malt taste, residual sweetness, and bold final bitterness. Very good as thirstquencher.
