DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma with some malt and some grassy Saaz hops. Sweetish malty flavor with a rather light bitter hoppiness in the finish. Body is rather light. Not that bad, but could use some more hoppiness, body and character in general. Oh, and I like the bird on the label.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2000
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 courtesy of Toni Hutter; canned - clear golden beer with a poor head retention; vaguely malty and corny aroma; medium-bodied and gently sticky; decently tasty and with a moderate bitterness; pretty long malty and aromatic finish - acceptable

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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.

Dogbrick (11609) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Can from a small tourist bar at the river port in Bratislava. This brew is a clear golden color with a medium frothy white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Mild hops aroma with a touch of citrus zest. Light body with a clean mouthfeel and flavors of mildly spiced hops, bready malt and citrus. The finish is grassy hops with a short citrus aftertaste. Barely average overall.

hopdog (11602) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a yellow color with a white head. Citrus, dried grass and generic sweetness.

crossovert (11423) - Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 If you get it fresh and in a can it can be really striking. It is a smooth, mellow pilsener, but one that you with want more and more of.

kevnic2008 (11414) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2012
Light gold pour. Mild hoppy taste, very smooth finish. Grassy spruce hop. Not particularly interesting, but a nice refresher.

madsberg (11405) - Sřborg, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white small head. Sweet and metallic aroma. Flavour is malty and very sweet. Is very thin bodied and ends on a artificial sweet note. Not much hops present in this one.
