Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2005
Full bodied, but sweet. Too sweet. Created a bit of unbalance in th malting and hopping. Nice appearance, but with a diminishing head, and no lacing. Little to no aroma. Soft carbonation.

asheft (2633) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
[on tap somewhere in the Czech Republic] Clear, brownish straw with a lacy white cover that was even a bit rocky. Sort of fresh hops aroma with a bit of malt and a bit of skunk. Surprisingly elevated bitterness up front leading into some hops flavour and then a touch of sweet malt. Interestingly, bitterness clears quickly. Fairly dry with not a whole lot of flavour. Light body with considerable carbonation and a nice finish.

shrubber85 (8325) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle. Nice malt aroma. Pale yellow color with moderate head. Balanced malt and hops flavor - nice body. A very nice pils and much better than the 10%.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 14, 2005
interesting, yet weak. Had a lot of amlt flavor to it mostly honey and bread notes not much of a hoppy finsih. Kinda carbonated and light on the papate.

Kinz (3405) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2004
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.

argo0 (11868) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2004
(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 (4687) - 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.

ogivlado (6109) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 7, 2004
