On draught in Naperville, Illinois. Color a pale amber, negligible nose, dry, bitter and mostly unsatisfying.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
Golden and clear with little head. Aroma is dominated by the green bottle skunk. Taste is weak and the finish is slightly bubbly. Not a great lager.

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
For a lager I usually stick to this one. Nice golden color, lighter carbonation than other choices. Skunky from a bottle but sweet on tap. For a lager, it ain't half bad.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2003
Colour was pale yellow, but with a strange brownish to it. Lots of fluffy white head. Lots of hop in the aroma. Taste was mostly bitter. Was like a typical macrobrew but with a bit more flavour.

3fourths (8885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Aroma of a typical lager, and a taste to match. Nothing terribly wrong with this lager, but the taste seems a bit metallic at times. Aftertaste is okay.

khayman70 (153) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2003
This is not a very memorable lager, it is light and even a bit skunky at times. It's not horrible, but in no way would I put it in my top 10 list. There was a decent hops nose and taste, but the light mouthfeel and very little aftertaste did very little for me.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2003
Glad I only paid $1 for this bottle. Dry finish with a sweet, hoppy character. What can I say but this is a below average lager.

This is an ok lager but has much too high a price tag for what you get

YellowKoala99 (9) - ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2003 does not count
One of the best lagers about. Strong hops taste gives it a good bitter edge. Very attractive.
