Pours pale gold in color. Smells of corn with some sweetness. Tastes like sweet grains, kind of like sweet corn tortillas or chips. Despite that is is not bad.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Bottle. GBBF 2004. A golden coloured almost clear lager with a white head. The aroma is biscuity and sweet - not particularly nice. The taste is typically lagerish with a sweet snatchy bite. Not too pleasant Score 1.8
Subsequent rating scored 3.1. Average becomes 2.4

haukur (1203) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 5, 2004
avarage pilsner, a bit malty taste, refreshing. Nothing much to say about this, nothing new and pretty avarage

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Very pale gold colour. Aroma was quite mild with just a bit of grassy hops and some bread coming through. Flavour was wheaty, grainy, light hops and a little bitter. Light body, watery. Finishes with a medium bitterness.

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2004
bottle. light translucent golden in appearance. Fluffy white head. grass, bread, cereal, and perhaps some hops are all evident in the aroma. Somewhat hoppy, but not really in a good way. This stuff is quite bland and uninteresting.

pintbypint (2382) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2004
Sampled from brown 500ml bottle. Pours a very pale gold colour with a thick white head that disappers rather quickly to form a thin dishsoap like "scum", by the end of the glass no trace of head could be found at all. Moderate malt and hops in the nose. Full syrupy body, with a bitter finish.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Very light golden pale appearance,soapy white head with decent lacing, slightly cloudy. Slightly buttery aroma with a little bit of biscuity maltiness to it. Flavor has some brief peppery notes, and some doughy notes as well. Detect a bit of honey sweetness in the back end as well. Mouthfeel is slightly bland. A decent Helles, not too much distinguishing it from a regular pale lager though.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Limpid golden body topped with a thick bubbly head. Average malty nose with some bready and hoppy hints. Taste is dominated by hoppy flavors. It ends with a very nice, long and bitter final. Good refreshing beer.

shorlin (590) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Decent lacing and an okay head. Not too pale, between yellow and gold. Very good nose, although I am getting out of practice in tasting. Sweet grass, nearly lemony aroma. Actually some complexity in the taste and body. Starts rounded and full. Finished sort of tingly. Dry at the end. Good beer!

hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Crystal clear, light yellow lager... as close to colorless as I’ve seen in a beer. The white head is large and frothy with very good retention, but sparse lacing. The nose is floral and peppery with light notes of citrus fruit, grass and toffee. The flavor is a bit citrusy, but otherwise nondescript. Well-bittered for decent balance. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Why do the owners of otherwise very respectable beer stores always seem to highly recommend bland, imported lagers? I guess they wouldn’t sell any of it otherwise.
