Choos (698) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2003
Aroma from both bottle but primarily tap is hoppy with a small amount of spice which immediatly differentiates it from most macro lagers (in my limited experience.) Looks clear yellow but a bit on the lighter side that I expected. Drinks similar to other lagers with small amounts of malt and a bit of hops but very little body. Aftertaste was similar to the aroma (which was pleasing) just a hint of spice and a bit of hop. I give this extra points in overall impression as it manages to wind up beside all the other macro stuff on tap in Australia, I think it's real beer.

hotstuff (4645) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Draft at Coasters Brewpub. This beer's appearance consisted of a small sized white frothy head with fine-medium bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with a yellow-gold hue. The nose was lightly malty and the flavor was malty and somewhat bitey with an aftertaste. The palate was tingly and bitey and this was a light-medium bodied beer with fair lacing.

HighlanderOne (1118) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Had this on tap in a NYC restaurant. Aroma of malt and spice. A bit of a Heineken-like quality in the flavor, but not too similar. The flavor is dominated by malt, with that bit of spice and some hop in the aftertaste. A good beer, but don’t drink more than a pitcher at a time. RE-RATE: Poured from bottle. Aroma a dead ringer for Heineken - not a good start. Appearance of a light lager, but paper-thin head persists. Flavor is pretty much as I called it in the 1st review. Has clean feel - very easy to drink. Finished OK. Decent.

thedm (5282) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 17, 2003
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 62. This draft brew was enjoyed at Coasters in Eau Gallie Florida out of 1 of their 32 taps. This brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparen very softly carbonated yellow orange colored body. It had a medium strength malt hop aroma and a chewey mellow malt mouthfeel. The flavor was that of a medium strength malt.

DanielBrown (4270) - 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.
