I think this is what I had, but frankly I’m guessing a bit. Closest in overall appearance to what is in this picture, but label says "Premium Pils." In any case, Medium gold in color, faintest flecks of orange if you look deep through it, decent head, big bubbles. Sweet flavor, then a slight bread note, and skunky grass hops. Better than this description makes it sound, but not great.

(500ml bottle) Sparkling straw body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, metallic, some bread. Taste is moderately sweet, apple juice, some bread, light metallic in finish. Watery, undercarbonated light body -- no crispness.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2004
Standard lager color, no foam. Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol, not disturbing though. Sweet start, ends with mildly dry and bitter mouthfeel. Thin body, still good basic lager. With more body rates would have been higher.

CapFlu (4504) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2004
(500ml can) Purchased at the SLGA Confederation Park store in Saskatoon. Pours a lasting white, frothy head and a highly carbonated deep golden body. Nose of tin, dried fruit and bread. Flavour is far more malty than anticipated, mild hoppiness. Not bad for a canned beer but only average at best.

imdownthepub (10171) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Sunny yellow colour with solid head. Tastes as though it is full of starch with a bread yeastiness. Some lemony acidity.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
Golden in colour with grassy aromas and little carbonation. Flavor wise, it starts like a Helles, but develops some odd sweet notes on the finish. Somewhat cloying... could be better.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
Golden straw colour with a large white head. Leaves some good lacing. Fruity, herbaceous nose. Clean-tasting but much hoppier than other pilseners I've tried thus far. Grassy flavours with a fairly bitter finish. Pretty good.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2004
Thi sis the only beer that I can truthfully say pours a solid yellow color. Very very thin head and leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet, with trace of sweetness. solid mothfeel, terrible aftertaste...leaves my mouth feeling used. Not too great.
