IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2003
Regular golden pils with huge chunky white head. Skunky aroma (damned green bottles) Not much flavor. Thin and watery. Some hop bitterness. The worst beer brewed in Belgium I've had so far. With so many good ones, why bother with this?

A bit on the burnt side with the malt, but good otherwise... Not very impressed with the head or lack of complexity.

This one was about as middle of the frickin road as they get. Poured on tap at lucky baldwins, it came out a uriney colored yellow mass with a weenie little white head and very little carbonation apparent. It smelled super funky...just like a Eureka beer...with wheaty, grainy, breadym doughiness and a slight malt being apparent. It had a rather boring, clean and watery wheat/honey taste about it. It was putting me to sleep it was so boring. Clean ending, but nothing to the body at all....next!!!!!

Pissly transparentness..nice head though..smells like budweiser but tasted like budweiser with some peaches and nectarine puree'd and slopped on top...although in the end..its lagery poo.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 21, 2003
Pale golden colour, decent head. Hoppy aroma. the taste is has some malty sweetness, with an hoppy, quite bitter aftertaste. A regular commercial pilsener: not bad, but nothing special.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Clear pale golden color with a bubbly and frothy head. A little wheaty aroma and some skunk. A taste of skunkiness and a nip of floral notes. I really am not a pilsner fan, but thought I would give it a try.

Even out of the bottle, this is one of the cleanest, freshest tasting brews I've had in a long time. Pretty dry too. Goes down real smoothly, and one of the few brews I can drink at least a six of.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 Bright yellow color. Mild hop aroma. Lots of carbonation and a light, airy palate. Pretty good flavor, much better than I remember. Moderate hops and some malt, it is much like a Bohemian pilsner. Score increased from original of 4/2/5/3/10. Seems best on draught.

A dark yellow beer with a nice white head. The aroma is a strong hoppy one - really nice - it almost fills the room when you pour it and makes you think of a Czech pilsener. The flavor is very sweet (maybe too sweet) with a nice but not that prominent bitterness. A little more balance would help. A good beer for a pilsener.

Thick, bitter then sour and full of chemicals. Whoops, not 75 characters. There - that's better.
