COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg: Non-pasteurized, bottle: Pasteurised.
Ingredients: Water, malt, rice, hops, yeast.

"A crystal clear golden beer that crowns a glass with a frothy head of dazzling white. A deep hop aroma and a rich long lasting flavour that is underscored by a light, barely perceptible hint of hop bitterness."

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2005
Pale golden colour with small white head. Malty aroma with some grain, hints of sourness and a bit of alcohol. Malty but boring flavor.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Light gold with a fairly large and attractive head of white foam. Minimal aroma, not much to be spoken of. Taste is light and grainy, but clean with an attractive hop finish.

asheft (2629) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Pale, bright golden with a nice fuzzy blanket that formed good lacing. Aroma very pleasant bouquet of mostly noble hops with some sweet malt. The taste was a let down after such an inviting aroma: Stale hops and bland malt that was too sweet--not balanced enough with bittering. Taste ends with some graininess. Light to medium body with some minor astringency and medium to high carbonation.

pootzboy (1609) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2010 The 3rd of the 10 LCBO slavic lagers to be tried. Possibly the best as this is a Dortmunder-Helles style and I’m partial to them. In the glass we see a pale straw, slight haze, rockey 2 finger frothy cap with fair retention and lace. Moderate carbonation. Nose is promising; sweet bready malts over a slight citrus note, in keeping with a helles. Good lager body, sturdy malt pronouncement, very well balanced with herbal hop presence which adds some bittering in the medium finish..the rice is barely detectable.....very nice put together little expoert helles....and a heck of a good find at the LCBO as I expected all the new dozen east block imports to be bland and characterless as the others I had tried

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Bottle. Yellow colour with a medium white head. Malty hay barnyard aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2005
An orange beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is of metal and is sour - it must be the rice used in it. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal.

Boutip (4999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2005
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color beer with a medium head with standard retention for the style. Taste is quite crisp with some noticeable bitterness at the end. I’m not very knowledgeable on the style but would say that I enjoyed it more then some other eastern European lager out there.

Dorwart (2411) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Large white head from a vigorous pour. Light carbonation. Light malt aroma with some rice and a bit of hops. Leaves an unimpressive scum of lacing on the glass. Crystal clear pale gold in color. Light and crisp. Very little flavor whatsoever. I realize that dortmunders are generally weak but this is pushing it a bit. Slight bitterness. Finish is pretty clean with a decent hop bitterness. So so.

jazz88 (2579) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Bottle. Light to clear yellow color with a diminished white head. A musty malt and hay aroma with a somewhat sweet and corn flavor. A dry harsh corn malt finish.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 Had this one bottled. Very thin head, almost no nose whatsoever, cloudy yellowish color, flavor of canned corn. Not the greatest beer of all time, that’s for sure. (2/3/5/3/7) Rerate after the Binny’s Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois.
