Bottle. Poured a golden yellow with an impressive, thick, solid head. Scent is somewhat sweet, with some hop notes poking out. Taste is clean, a little too skunky for my liking, but very smooth. There seems to be inconsistences from bottlings as I’ve tried it a few different times with varying levels of skunkiness.

Perhaps something went wrong with my bottle on its way here to Panama. It was labelled "Duty Free". Poured into the glass with essentially no head and very little carbonation. Flavor was for a Pilsener, not that memorable. But better than typical macrobrew fare.

Large bottle, hot summer day, great beer. Certainly worth the hype when measured against the standard ’Budweiser’. Relative to other premium lagers I would say it holds its own.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Green 12 oz bottle. Had to try the "famous budweiser beer." Poured light golden, head disappearing immediately. Aroma initially of strong bologna skunkiness (green bottle disease), settling into familiar saaz hop and grain/straw pils aroma. Flavor of lemony hop, wet grain, grass, with a bit of a sulphury finish. Watery palate, flattened out very quickly. Though not entirely offensive, I expected a lot more. I’d definitely take Pilsner Urquell over this if given the choice between the two.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2006
0.5 L bottle, bottled in June 06. Dark golden with a light coppery shade. Full of large bubbles, fine head. Wonderful Zatec (Saaz) hop bouquet. Full-mouth, velvety mouthfeel, with a taste dominated by hops.

scania (188) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour. Aroma of vanilla and rich biscuity malt. Hoppy flavor. Juicy malt. Not very bitter, but dry finish.

DruncanVeasey (8426) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 1)Wildly effervescing golden trumpet. Citrussy hop aroma. That abruptly rubbery Saaz dryness. Bitterly simplistic, and not a patch on the dark version. 635413. 2)Re-rate over 8 years later...Waft of hutch from a mile off. Bready and honey-dripped with suggestions of cashew almost in the GA ballpark. Crisp suck of bitterness to conclude. Clean, refreshing and clearly a cut above most of the other rubbish available in Hinckley TossCo. 737314.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2006
This is the first beer that I have encountered from this brewer. Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a huge soapy off white head. The aroma is sour macro lager. The flavor is typical tangy macro lager with very little body or character. Typical crappy macro style beer. Totally forgettable.

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours out a nice golden colour with a playful bubbly white head. Scent is very skunky with light metallic notes. Taste is yeasty with very light fuity notes hanging on the backdrop. Leaves a slight bitterness on the palate. Unexpected flavour elements that seem to have two distinct layers of flavor... One initially yeasty with hanging fruitiness and two a bitter hoppiness with citrus notes. Overall smooth on the mouth and mild bodied.
