(bottle) Pale gold. Little aroma. Reasonably refreshing lager/pilsner. I didn't detect any skunkiness/metallic tastes--perhaps I had a fresh bottle. I'm sure the green glass doesn't help.

I was pretty impressed with this brew. A little too expensive to geta lot but a nice change of pace. Really like the flavor once I had a few.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2003
Skunky, sweet and with that metallic cling-to-the-front-of-your-tongue type thing that comes with skunking. OK head retention and perfect clarity obviously, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Didn't think it was any good but then I had a Tooheys New and this killed in comparison.

Very nice dark lager. Had one in Niagara Falls. Nice finish, very smooth. Comparable to a heineken

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Dark straw color with a lid of white bubbles. Grass and malt aromas. Dry clight caramel flavors with a floral/dry rose finish. Nothing earth shattering for sure. Just another plain psuedo pils.

It was ok. Very strong aroma, almost too strong.Nice foamy head. Very light yellow color.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2003
I think this beer is also terribly overrated, even if it is one of the best sellers in its demographic market or whatever. It is still suffering from the green bottle blues. A very sweaty musty skunk aroma and taste, but not as bad as some others.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2003 I think this beer mostly suffers from being terribly overrated. Its gaining increasing popularity (at least here on the East Coast) and even though it is gaining the status of newest beer snob beer at many sports and dive bars, I find it a little disappointing. Its better than a becks or heineken, but has a bit of a skunky aroma (re: gym socks) with a very watery, corny, grainy taste. Hint of apple cider as well. Nice, unassuming finish. Not bad, just not terribly great!

The REAL king of beers, aka "shoe loser" as well as "wife beater"

Very much like becks/heineken w/a strange offtaste.Not as bad as expected.Nothing to really seek out neither.It reminded me of this beer called Peter's pilsener.
