pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
This is the Bud of Belgium. A very standard lager with delusions of greatness. Wet cardboard nose, bound with cheap hop bitterness. I don't like this one at all.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2003
This is actually getting worse down here. The beer is brewed under licence so the tap drop is not great. From the bottle it is not bad, with a mild hop finish and clean style. Still better than most of our swill.

Skunky garbage. Trace hops in the nose. Ungood flavor. So much worse than Heineken.

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 19, 2003
Light golden in colour, with a short to medium head, which disappers rather quickly. Malt and herbal aroma. Mild bitterness, thin malt texture, short finish, but overall, not the worst macro lager around...

Hansen (7351) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2003
One of the most ordinary belgian beers. It's like Heineken, Carlsberg and so on. A little sweetness and a very little bitterness, that's all.

Dorwart (2424) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Decent white head with great lacing. Plenty of carbonation also. Light gold in color. Slight malt/hop aroma. Flavor is light and crisp and not offensive. Finish is slightly dry and a little bitter. A typical european pilsner but is actually better than a lot since it seems that they forgot to throw the skunk in the vat.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2003
On draught: Looks like your average Pils clear light gold with snow white head. Tastes just like a German Pils in every way. Crisp clean light body with high effervescence. Subtle malt flavor and ever so slightly bitter.Very refreshing but not a great Pils. More recently I've had Pils from Ayinger and Pinkus which were both far better.

TheGreatKen (76) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2003
It is very crisp. This reminds me of Czech lagers like Staropramen and Pilsner Urquell. It's drinkable, but stronger than most American lagers.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Had on tap on May 7th, 2003 at Callahan's
The beer poured a golden color with slight carbonation. The aroma wasn't anythign special - perhaps some hops and grain - but weak. Taste is nothing to write home about - it was easy to drink, but the taste was a bit acidic with a weak aftertaste.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2003
This beer poured a dark straw color and formed a nice bubbly white head that didn't leave much lace as it subsided. The aroma was of green apples and had a slight skunkiness to it, which couldn't have been from the store since Columbus just got this stuff in a few weeks ago. A medium amount of carbonation was present. The flavor was of hops and grain. For a lager, it had a surprising amount of taste to it and the finish actually had a bit of body to it. I can see where people would compare this more to something like a Heineken.
