Light crisp slighty skunked grassy aroma. Light pissy hue with a fast disappating foamy head. Watery taste with a malty edge and a short skunky finish. Standard Swil.

The head, like champagne mousse, rises up then quickly dies down to nothing. Low carbonation thereafter, leaving just a petillant prickle on the tongue. Very pale gold colour. Some fusty malt in the aroma, but quite faint. I also thought I detected corn adjunct notes, but that isn't listed in the ingredients. Sweetish initial impression on the palate, with some biscuity malt notes and an acidic edge appearing later. Not very hop accented. The finish is fresh, clean and vvery dry, but marred by a metallic tang that hangs around after all else has departed. Drinkable, but not very distinguished. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk

I thought this was OK. Pretty decent maltiness in both aroma and flavour. No real hop character but enough bitterness to balance. Well made, well balanced and drinkable but certainly nothing special.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2004
White, bubbly foam which dissipates rather quickly, leaving a thin head. Pale-golden color. Aroma is bland, very slightly malty. Flavor is the same with a weird nasty aftertaste.

Very light coloured beer. Typical lager aroma, but not a bad flavour. Very clean, crisp and refreshing. Better than the huge majority of eurofizz.

Crockett (1113) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Clear straw yellow. Fizzy head for a short time. Light floral hoppy apple aroma. Flavours are, again, hops and apple. Lively carbed. Finishes dry, with lingering malt. Suprised. It was half decent.

Massive foamy white head sits atop a pale yellow body. Glass lacing is not too bad. The aroma of cheap lager permeates the air around as the beer is poured. The flavor is slightly hoppy along with a little bit of biscuity malt. Not too offensive but not great either.

mobilecow (14) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2004
My very first beer, so there is some attachment but decent enough to be a regular repeat. It's fairly pale, with a nice white head. The taste is slightly sweet (but not overpoweringly so) with a decent malt taste with adequate carbonation and a clean finish - maybe too clean as there's no memorable after-taste. It's by no means a complex beer but is better tasting than most mass-production Lager and miles over a Molson Cdn. Definitely worth a try...

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2004
This was actually not a bad lager. Pours golden and cloudy, with a large rocky head. The smell is skunky, which I really do not like, but the taste makes up for the aroma. I mean do not get me wrong the taste is not amazing, but it is not bad for a lager.

hershiser2 (2605) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
very pale golden, cloudy, large head; too pale and almost colorless, actually. skunky smell, nothing appealing here. not much of a taste... just a bitter and skunky aftertaste.. very boring. very very very very very very very thin in the mouthfeel Not gonna bother drinking this one again.
