Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Gold color with a fizzy white head and lively carbonation. Very sweet citrusy aroma. Grassy as well. Honey almost. Eh... flavor is a sour, grassy mess. Too bitter and rough on the palate to be worth making a session of.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Grassy, wet sock aroma over a sweet pils base; rather flavorless and slightly sour; harmless, yet quite unappealing.

3fourths (8885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Draft: Typical mild and fresh pils-sort of malt with medium to low hop bitterness but still noticeable. Somewhere between a helles with too much coarseness and astringency to the malt, and a German-style pils that’s underhopped.

Bottle: Smells and tastes like wet grains and sour, moldy hay. Completely unappetizing, and this was a cold draft pour at a McCormick’s Fish House. Horrible, horrible beer - I at least expected it to be somewhat refreshing and flavorless.

BeerBaron (2) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2005 does not count
This was the first time I actually regretted that i wasn’t drinking a bud light. Piss yellow, no taste outside of the dredges of America’s "Rocky Refreshment". Too watery, poor carbonation

Had this beer at a local bar on tap. At least they served it to me in a cool glass, otherwise it would have been a complete waste of my $4 for this junk.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Piss yellow with a film of white head. Slightly lightstruck, grainy aroma. Mellow grainy flavors with a tinger of bitter and floral hop character, this character particularly noticable in the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

"Wifebeater" seems to be drink of choice amongst English pub-goers. Over-carbonated, fairly tasteless. Standard keg lager stuff. Have noticed that bottles of belgian origin tasted slightly better

jcwattsrugger (11752) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2005
on tap-pours a thin white head. Color is clear yellow. Aroma mild grain. Taste is grain and a Corona like ingredient, but better. Good carbonation. A good lager, which they tend to be middle of the road.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Poured a pale yellow color with a white head. Malty doughy aroma. Malty flavor with a raw dough tartness. Not really a lager fan but not a bad beer.

It sucks to live in Oklahoma. Just played at a brunch, and the manager knows I’m a big beer geek. When we were on a break, he says "Boy do I have a surprise for you. We got a new beer from Belgium." He then pours it in a wine glass. I thought it was a joke. Slightly darker than my drummer’s Bud Light, but nothing worth taking seriously.
