yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle, labeled Original Import, 5.4%. It pours a slighlty chill hazed orange-golden body under a minimal layer of off-white bubbles. Fruit-syrupy sweetish nose with grains. Sweet flavor too, too sweet I think, with grains as a backbone, and a little bitterness lingering. The bitterness is overpowered by the sweetness all the way though. Medium body and appropriated carbonation considering the sugary feeling. Far from impressing, but not bad. Lacks on quenching qualities I think. 091102

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Can, 5.4%. Lagery aroma, hint of hops. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour has a little bisquity malt and spicy hop flavour, but also some rough flavour hop. There is even a little hop bite in the finish, but without the fresh hop flavour that should come along with it.

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2005
Can, label Zipfer original import (BB 11/2005)
Yellow with small white head, some lace. Aroma has sweet malts and earwax. Balanced malt profile with some late bitterness in the finish. Clean and drinkable but very plain.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2001
Mainstream, but still well-made pilsner, dry in palate but finishing rather abruptly.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours lightly cloudy gold with a slight creamy white head. To me the aroma is like light lemon grass. Near med body. Flavor is bready, with some bitter. Bitter is kind of unusual - could be herb/grass, but I’m not really getting a hint of spice. Finishes fairly dry. Better than many East Euro lagers, but this is from Austria, so maybe not a surprise.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 28, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a short lived white head. S: I can smell the skunk before I even pour the beer. Lots of sulfur on the nose, and some definite grassiness. Some decent sweetness underneath with some mild bread and some corn. T: A lot of grassy hops with a fair amount of bitterness. The skunkiness is still there and certainly off-putting. However, the beer is sweet overall and has a nice bit of malt in addition to the adjunct sort of flavors. M: Fairly light in body with a medium to high level of carbonation. O: Could have been pretty good, but the skunkiness just really ruined it.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
Pour very clear pale yellow. Aroma is sweet, with lots of malt. Flavour is definitely more hoppy than the aroma. A Citric hoppyness giving the beer a sour edge.
