ALLOVATE (2541) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Tasted, notably, at a romantic dinner to please my fiancť and poured into a stem glass. Glowed a clear gold with large irregular bubbles failing to form a head. Watery thin and overly carbonation leafy corn lager that made me wish I had ordered a glass of wine. Became a little sweet and cloying when it warmed. Bland and lifeless, massively advertised Macro-stew of a beer that didnít even sit well with my food!!!

Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
I tried diligently to avoid consuming this beer on my trip to Europe, but when our dinner plans fell through and we found ourselves at the emergency backup dinner establishment, this was all they had besides Bud, Michelob and 255ml bottles of Castlemaine, and I was way burned out on soft drinks...

Anyway, aroma is very faint, just a little sweet, light maltiness and floral hop character. Light-medium yellow color, very bubbly, average head. Flavor is dry, malty and lightly bitter, clean and having a very light amount of hop flavor. Balanced, I suppose, and not offensive, really. Palate is crisp, the body is undoubtedly light. Just sort of a generic "beer" type of drink.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2004
I paid 3 bucks to add this notch to my beltloop, and at least it wasnít a 300 dollar call girl who didnít have 3 inputs. Pale yellow with medium head and some lacing, which gave this a 2 for appearance. Aroma of mild hopcit, and a noticable thiosulfate skunk odor. Tastes rather bland, with some hopcit, and a fairly crisp, smooth finish. I wonít buy this again, and with all the great Belgian beers out there, I canít understand why this is so huge in Europe....

On draft. Iíve tried Stella before in a bottle and this is much better. A little bland, but easy drinking.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - OCT 28, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Weird, weird, weird. I do not like it. It smells and tastes like Pine Sol. Yuck. ***Second Rating: After having this on tap in Boston, I realize that I probably got a skunky bottle before. Itís still not that great, however. Itís very light in flavor and has a bit of a corn flavor.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Well, it was free at the change of command reception. Thatís about all their is to say. Itís a very average pils thatís not complex. Color and aroma is standard with no outstanding characteristics. A bit hoppy on the palate and a clean finish. A snoozer.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2004
Golden amber in appearance, with okay lacing. A great hoppy aroma. Really good on the palate. Nice and smooth, easy drinking. Perhaps a good session beer.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2004
This beer smelt like pine needles when first opened up, but then that smell quickly dissipated. What remained was a smooth, enjoyable and pleasant light tasting mellow beer. Two thumbs up.

on tap. This was horrible, I may have gotten a bad pint but damn. Pale golden colour but the aroma and taste were entirely of wet stinky cardboard. Just a dank beer.

Doesnít smell very good. Interesting taste that I canít put my finger on. Slight bitterness. Looks like a typical lager.
