BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2005
Pretty mild all the way around-aroma, flavor and overall impression. An easy beer to drink, but nothing that stood out. A good lager with medium body.

IristAle (1) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2005 does not count
Thin laced head, crisp, no bitterness. Nothing stands out about this beer, but somewhat refreshing.

antibeersnob (29) - Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2005
Had it on tap with dinner. Straw Yellow in color, thin head, and a bit of carbination. No real noticable aroma. First flavor was that of any other lager..nothing special. However, had a nice bitter finish that was surprising. Too expensive for what you get, and very over-hyped. Not a bad beer, but would not buy again.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2005
Golden color with a large white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with a hint of hops. Flavor continues with more sweet malt/grain with a quick bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Kevin (2156) - New Mexico, USA - APR 5, 2005
golden pour that is attractive in the glass with a thin lacing white head. very light aroma that has a hint of earthiness and straw. taste is light mellow malt with a lemony finish that has very little bitter. rubbery mouthfeel.

fordest (2073) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Draft in Whistler, Canada. Golden yellow with an average white head. I had expected more, and I don’t know why. Hoppy aroma, but flavor was not overwhelming memorable, and the aftertaste was a bit metallic.

stouby (4107) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 2, 2005
Draught. Yellow with white head, fully diminishing. No lacings. Aroma and flavor light malty and hoppy. Light body, watery, lively carbonation.

pkbites (724) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Had several cans of this on British Airways while flying to London (March, 2005). Looks and smells like a low priced American standard. But it doesn’t have that awful overbearing corn sweetness that dominates most American beers. Light bitterness, goes down very smooth with a medium finish. Very refreshing.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Green bottle poured yellow with a good white head and heavy lacing. Aroma was malty,spice and a bit skunky. Flavor was malt, corn with a heavy metalic finish. Great lacing, but not that good of a beer.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2005
This beer does not offer a lot of flavor but personally I find it relaxing. It has a little of the skunkiness you find in Heineken but it isn’t as overt. It is definately one of the better mainstream commercial lagers on the market as it is a highly drinkable beer. However, it seems to lack a distinct taste that sets it apart from its competitors. In a few words: kind of bland but not offensive.
