oh6gdx (25464) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head, which lasts for long and leaves nice lace. Aroma is malts, hops and some slight estery notes. Flavour is fruity slightly hoppy along with some sweet malts also.

FatPhil (14074) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2008
330ml bottle (?, Amsterdam)
Darkish, good head. Sour, pissy and a bit peppery aroma. Taste is also a bit pissy, salty and drying - metallic. Some good malty body too, but dominated by odder tastes, not all good.

HenrikSoegaard (13276) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle. Creamy white excellwnt fully lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty moderate hoppy aroma. many fruity esters, banana? Moderate bitter flavor. Tastes of barnyard, really not my style. Very creamy palate. Strange beer tastes more like a light belgian ale. I wonder what yeast is used here.

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2007
Slightly herbal, grassy, citric aroma. Citric, grassy flavor with an upcoming grapefruity tarness (infection?) and a light hop character, especially revealing itself in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 9, 2007
from crackedkettle.com - pours a translucide bronze colour with a solid creamy white foam; estery aroma of pear and apple, some undefined spices; sweet and slightly acidic; medium to full-bodied; short and a bit sweetish fruity and slightly spicy finish - fresh, dynamic and with an interesting character

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2007
Disparate light head, fast gone, over very carbonated beer, with a champagne-like colour and appearance. Nose of sour hay, yeast - this is a benign infection! A bit of ít putteke . Fleetingly sourish, then an equally short-lived bitterness, tad metallic, reverting to more classical pilsner flavours with some grassy and hay - but hay thatís been long out there withouth drying. Very light bodied. A bit sharp, but not burning MF. As said, this is infected, but in a pleasing way. Itís quite original in itís style! Thanks Dean.

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2007
Clear yellow color, short frothy head. Aroma of grassy hop, bit malty. Average pale lager.

altonbrownd (5769) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2007
Bottle at home. Sour scented Lager. Appel color. Some texture of taste - not much. An apple-flavoured beer. A bit weak. Hoppy finish.

skortila (5337) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2007
Aroma of grassy hops. Clear, golden coloured with not much head. Taste is sweet with grassy hops and some apple. Not really good.

This is a pretty decent pale lager, light bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Sweet and grassy. Got this in a gift pack from the original Groninger, Paul.
