BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2004
Clear greenish yellow with thick fizzy white head. Grainy skunky and adjunct laden aroma. Bland watery flavor that’s drinkable but lightly metallic and grainy like rotten cereal. Finishes watery & metallic.

A European Swill Beer. Had this in London I believe. Gold Coloring, no Head. Possibly fruity... not much to quench the tongue...next please...

Light gold with thin head that has ok retention. Boring nose, some citrus and malt. Similar in the palate with some malt, slightly stale, but is overridden with a dilutive note. It’s amazing in Oz retail that soooo many punters this beer is the business.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have had this one a number of times but have never been particularly impressed. Sampled on draft for this rating the beer poured a medium yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light and fairly nondescript. The flavor has a light malt element but otherwise is bland and inoffensive.

The european bud light. I have drank this every way possible- warm, cold, bottle or tap.. anyway you get it, its still comparable to a mass-produced beer from the states. Pretty boring.

pours a light clear yellow with a white head. No distinguishable aroma. Flavor is crisp, refreshing, and not at all unlike a mass produced "beer"

This is like the budweiser of Belgian beers. Nice color. It’s a good beer but not a great beer. It’s an average lager that is dependable and a couple of notches above Miller. Smooth with a little skunk bitterness on taste which is what you get with average lagers.

Pours a clearish gold, thin head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is S-K-U-N-K-E-D. Not that I expected any different. It’s possible that these euro lagers are pretty good when fresh and on tap, but I have not had a euro lager yet that was in good condition and was enjoyable. This one manages to be a little more malty and flavorful than many others.
