Geiserich (3731) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 5, 2004
Hoppy-fresh aroma. Golden color. Pleasant hopp, spicy taste, light malty. Llight bitter aftertaste. A pleasant beer, but for me more a pils than a normal lager.

shrubber85 (9112) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Subtle hops/grain aroma. Dark yellow color and nice white head. Watery, grainy flavor with a slight bitter finish but grew on me as I drank more. Not bad but don’t look too hard for it.

50 cl. bottle. Served in small sample glass. Very similar to the Märzen. Pale gold, decent head. Pleasant enough lager.

Wow, we can’t find a decent pilsener in Autria. Every one we have tried is kind of like this one: boring!!!! Stale pale yellow in color, nothing going on with this one. Skunky smell, too many poor quality hops. Taste is too light, too much carbonation...leads to unpleasant consequences. Don’t like this one much!

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2003
Very pale colour, not much head but some clumpy lacing on the glass. Very little aroma, some cooked spaghetti. Lean but solid malt flavour. Dryish, balanced finish, some hops in there. Light body. Nice, but hardly exciting.

haukur (1438) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 16, 2003
a nice, very ordinary hoppy pils. Crispy taste, maybe too crispy. Lack of character, a little boring but drinkable

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Smell of slight skunk, dishwater and stale socks. I maybe getting quite harsh on mainstream lagers. But don't stop me yet... Very yellow colour and little head. Taste isn't bad really. Bit Watery, but some aftertaste that reminds of international Dutch offerings. Nothing special, but not all that bad. Re-rate: no, notes, but new numbers. Better than I remembered, but not special still.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2003 Not a bad beer. It has a bit going for it, a zesty bitter beer that is quite tasty. I was shocked as i didnt think it was gunna be much. cheers

This beer really hits the taste buds strongly but nicely. This beer proves that a beer does not have to look good to taste good. This beer has a nice sweet flavour and a sharp pleasurable aftertaste. Maybe able to call this beer a dry. A good drop that surprised me in quality.
