DanielBrown (4095) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2003
Draught, at Hogshead, Birmingham. Boring, tedious lager, which is omnipresent in the UK, and is indeed the no. 1 lager. Skunky falvour, dishwater aroma, looks like shandy and stronger than it needs to be as a session lager. Yawn...

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2003 another overrated lager, it's the only beer that i've tried from belgium i wont pay money for, maybe a more complex [if faint]flavour than most standard mainstream lagers.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Pours a golden yellow with a thin head. Decent lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty. A touch of hops on the tongue. Not a bad brew. Actually, it's pretty good for it's class. I expected this beer to be complete swill.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2003
(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 (5032) - 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.

bhindbluis (17) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2003
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.
