MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Light gold with nothing even vaguely resembling a head. Nose hoppy, grassy, and somewhat skunked. Flavor is very citric, marginally sweet, and a bit hoppy, but the unpleasant skunkiness pops up again.

Bottle. I had this one about 10 or 12 times on my Lufthansa flight in March 2004 going to Frankfurt on my way to Rome. I enjoyed it because they were all free (we got bumped in business class) and it was actually a pretty decent beer. A light colored brew with a vanishing head. A little hoppy and biting on the nose with bubbly carbonation and a light body. Not bad stuff, not great.... but not bad. A decent Pilsener.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2004
Light yellow color, little vanishing white head. Lively carbonation. Mildly fenoly and hoppy aroma, nothing special. Fenols in flavor too, ends with medium hops and some alcohol tones. Medium carbonation. Standard mildly dry pilsner.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Palest pale yellow color, fine white head. Aromatic head, i.e. giving off the typical lager-type whiff. Fresh, citrusy, lemon, clean, simple, blah, blah, blah...I’m sorry, no matter how many times I try to come up with something new, fresh, original, unique, etc...there’s nothing I can do!! It’s a boring beer!!!

Classic Pilsner,pPours yellow, short head life, slight bitter and mild hops flavor. I like it quite a bit.

Better than most, but far from the best. I agree that life is too short to drink cheap beer, but I’m not too sure this is what it’s supposed to mean. It’s like a heine with some extra balls.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Looks and smells like a German pilsner should...medium yellow with plenty of white head, aroma is slightly bitter. Taste is a little weak, not much on the front end and the standard hoppy bitterness on the back end. Nothing too surprising about this, but nothing too spectacular either. Light to medium body, with the bite I mentioned before as the finish. I’m glad I was able to buy only one bottle of it.

sdechert (13) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Fizzy yellow beer, medium head. Slightly bitter, not much character. Good but not great.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Clear yellow/golden with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma of hay and hops. Very highly carbonated. Fairly well balanced pilsener with an odd(but not unpleasant) hay/straw finish.
