HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
Can (440ml). Poured clear pale yellow with some nice lingering bubble columns, a big foamy creamy white lasting head. Aroma is sweet creamed corn, extra sugar, some vegetal skunkiness and wet-dog yeastiness. Gets nastier if you let it warm: don’t let it warm. Taste follows the nose with the added extra of some stale hops and quite a lot of sour grain. Watery. Not horrific, but not worth drinking unless you’re really thirsty and it is ice-5 cold.

330ml bottle at the Saxildhus Hotel, Kolding. Imagine my delight on checking in to the hotel for my night in Denmark and finding an invitation to drink anything in the minibar for free in celebration of the hotel’s 100th anniversary. What delights would the minibar hold? Of course, the only beer in it was Tuborg Gron. However, it was free and it would have been disrespectful not to toast the anniversary. Pale gold colour with persistent carbonation. It claims to be all malt. If that’s true, it was quite an achievement to make the beer smell adjunct ridden. Very corny. Not much better on the palate. Dull malt and lots of sweetness. Only a touch of late bite and a lasting, dry aftertaste does anything to redeem the situation. Sadly, I had to drink a few more of these before the night was out because Kolding is, apparently, shut on a Monday evening. Thankfully, its by no means the worst lager out there.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 440ml can. Pours a very pale straw yellow, with a quick fizz head that disapers in a second or 2. Aroma is boiled corn and can. One is instanlty asulted by the relitive thinness, and how fast it goes flat. taste is not bad. It’s also not good. somewere betwine drink it or dont. Tastes of crystal malt and fresh boiled corn make the first yell, folowed by bubble gum and a little floral hop. Undertones are almost un-present, slight herbal ness, touch of ginger, just a pettal or 2 of spicy hop, cane sugar and a trace of belgum yeast. the finish is actualy very dry and nice, with only the slightest sweet malt/corn aftertaste. The summer is over and I just now see this one on the shelves, but I realy think this might be the ultimate too hot to think beer. Just sweet and light enough to pour a full {american} pint down you’re neck, but intresting enough to actualy create some thought. I think I like it, but not very much. A perfect contadiction, that’s great. Worth a try, I’m positive some of you out there will think this to be poured directly from the great beer god’s left breast. Cheers {ps, we all now that the right breast is for ale, the left for lager, right? lol}

33 cl. bottle. Golden colour with little shortlasting head. An ordinary no good pilsner with a watery body.

TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2005
This one is pretty rough. Too many hops, and too much yeast. The alcohol is almost overpowering. The color is odd, and it has a moderate but quickly fading head. The beer is much too skunky for me. And the aftertaste is much too bitter.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2005
This is not good. Sparkling gold body, with frothy short lived head. Aromas are tin, corn, skunked hops. Taste is bitter mineral, tin, skunky water. This is a sub-par beer from a brewery that prides itself on tradition.

leaparsons (8916) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle. Light gold with a white head. Flavours are corn, toast and some hops spices. Flavours are corn, grain and some butter. Also has some some citrus fruit followed by ever so slightly dry hops. Not as good as the German pilsner version (however un-pilsner like that it).
Earlier Rating: 8/19/2005 Total Score: 2.5
50cl Bottle. Golden with a small head. Aromas are nutty metallic hops with some sweet malts. Flavours are nutty and bitter, metallic with some staleness. Bitter and a bit rough on the finish. A very unusual pilsner, it reminded me more of an Alt. Not too bad. Interestingly, this is brewed by Hannen who brew an Alt...did they put my beer in the wrong bottle?

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Very light golden with a massive head, that disappears almost instantly. Very faint hop notes in the aroma and a bit of toast. Massively carbonated. Bit of maltiness on the palate. Extremely thin mouthfeel. This is an unbelievably boring beer.
