PorterPounder (5448) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Overall, bland. Light golden appearance, pillowy white head, good lacing. Lifeless mouthfeel. Flavor has some peppery essence to it with just a tad bit of Saaz hop bitterness. A bit of a biscuity flavor to it as well. Not much else going on with this. Dull.

Aurelius (4106) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Sweet malty aroma. Good label, medium golden beer with a rafting head. Malty, golden fruity, cakey flavors. A bit tart. Not very hoppy, it didn't seem to have enough hops to get it into the pils and out of the lager category. Substantial mouth, but needing a little fizz.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
Nothing special here. Seems the more I drink some of these pilsners, the more I dislike them. There was something about the taste and smell of this one that turned me off.....like a dead skunk with rotten fruit. Not pleasant at all, but better than Olde English , Schlitz, or any brew of that ilk.

GregClow (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2004
Clear light golden colour with a small white head. Grassy Saaz aroma with a hint of skunkiness. Body is crisp and somewhat watery. Flavour has moderate bitterness, and a very dry finish. Not unpleasant, but not spectacular either.

Nice golden color with a surprisingly clean aroma. Rather plain tasting but a quality example of the style for the money.

DragonStout (1408) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2004
A golden yellow beer when poured.The aroma was skunky.The taste was a real bad impersonation of a Heineken.The finish was both bitter and sour.Youi can keep this in Europe.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2004
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in a dimple mug. Tasted at 10C. Relatively dark yellow ./ golden in colour with a thin white sustained head. Aroma of hoppy bitterness with a slightly estery smell. Flavour is fairly malty. Evident sweetness with an acrid bitter finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2003
The color on the pour is a limpid deep gold with a generous bright white head that is frothy in texture and the residual lace a quite thin sheet to cover the glass. Nose is citrus crisp, fresh and clean, sweet with the start also sweet and fairly well malted, top is middling in feel. Finish is brisk in its carbonation and the hops mild but pleasant in their spicy bite, quite dry aftertaste, drinkable at any rate.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
A nice color (they don't call it Golden for nothing) and a decent white head gives way to a fairly bitter taste, though not too unpleasant. Better than your average pilsner, but only slightly so.

MontyLH80 (18) - Lubbock, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Light gold color, decent aroma (Hoppy) and a crisp taste. However I had this on tap while in the Slovak Capital, Bratislava, so I can't comment on the import/bottle version.
