godol (6) - Stävie, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2005 does not count
Nice but weak aroma with bread in it. Pale golden colourwith a fresh head that disappeared quickly. Well tasting but not very much taste. Gets a little too sweat after two thirds of the glass. Not enough hops and malt for me.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2005
Draught in 1.Slovak Pub, Bratislava. Averagely malty beer with a slight mown grass nose. Syrupy malt flavour with a slight dryness. Boring, but better than expected.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2005
Looks good when poured, a typical golden beer with creamy head. There is a definite sweetness in the nose that is emphasised when poured. Quite cloying actually with a syrupy finish. Not at all crisp and residually dry as on would expect from this style. Quite a disappointment.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2005
Off eggy, milky aroma. Sweet tasting, slightly syrupy, boiled veges. Soft, quickly fading finish.

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 (2476) - 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 (7290) - 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%.

Geiserich (3268) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 23, 2005
Bottled:
Quite overall beer. Some fruitiness, grainy, light sweet.

crazyvin (1897) - 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 (3251) - 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.
