argo0 (12501) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Clear golden body with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet (corn?), apple juice, slightly skunky. Taste is very mild -- medium sweet, bit of grassy in finish, and I can swear that I taste the alcohol. Light-medium body.

HenrikSoegaard (12047) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Light sweet and bitter flavor, a little cheasy. Average finish. Watery palate. Not my style.

imdownthepub (11962) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Pale gold with light head. Mostly a tasteless eurolager. Didn’t match many of the Hungarian beers which says much.

FatPhil (11831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 500ml bottle (Travellers, Tallinn) (5:2:4:2:6=1.9)
Slightly gingery lager aroma, some lemon. Similar taste, very lagery. Drying, slightly unpleasant palate, metallic. Some weetabix in the finish. Slimy. Not actually nasty, but not actually good.
Rerate: 500ml can (Stockmann, Tallinn) (6:2+:5:3-:10=2.6)
Sweet fruity citrussy aroma, a bit orangy ad lomony. Pale. Head settles slowl to a scummy ring. Fullish palate, but not as full as the Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold we just had. Very simple czech style lager. A touch of ginger at times. But a bit boring. Finish only hs simply dry hops, dryness is refreshing. It’s surprisingly good for a macro lager. The nimbu masala test brings out only a hint of alcohol, and definitely no puke.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
Can from Fonefan, thanks! Brewed by Heineken Sopron, Hungary. Soft grassy aroma with aluminium notes. Grassy hopbitter flavor, somewhat grainy. Medium bodied with a hint of metal in the aftertaste. Slightly disappointing.

Benzai (11359) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2011
Average white head, standard golden / yellow pilsener color. Smell pilsener malts, grains and a little musty. Nothing special and -though not complete rubbish- pretty boring.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Light amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Very grainy aroma with no detectable bitterness. Taste starts off grainy and becomes bitter, fruity and slightly metallic. Definite sweaty sock notes. Medium body.
