UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Very light golden, I got no head at all. Some nice faint smell of yeast. Mild taste, pretty simple. Hops are well pronounced, nothing else too interesting. All right everyday lager. 500 mL can.

Had this one bottled. Medium head that dissipated rapidly, slightly more bubbly than most, deep yellow color, very clear and bright, very mild hoppy taste. Clean but watery mouthfeel, aftertaste is dry. For a lager, this isn't bad.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Pale yellow color with a thick head. Clean hop aromas follow through with a nice full feel in the mouth. There is a touch of sweetness that gives way to a dry finish. Aftertaste is mild, not bad for a lager.

bierkoning (12884) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2003
Slight orange aroma. A little hopbitterness, with some orange in the flavor. Just a bit of soap in the aftertaste. Another average German lager....

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
Clear golden robe, generous white head with a decent stickiness, but short-lasting leaving just a film. Herbal and bready aroma, very malty with notes of hops (saaz?). Light bodied, sweet grassy taste and a decent bitter dry finish. I'd give it better notes wouldn't it be of the unpleasant DMS character.

aracauna (3548) - Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2003
This is a surprisingly tasty beer. It's nothing that you wouldn't expect, but it's a very well executed lager I think. There's a very crisp body with a bit of a spicy hop bite, especially at the end. I actually consider this a pretty tasty lager, almost pilsnerish.

Ernest (7507) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, cereal, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Feed-bag smell, too sweet, husky finish. Blah.

bfgill (120) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2003
DAB is a bit cheaper than its overseas counterparts, and i dont really know why, cos it isnt worse than them. A nice malty aroma with a quite full beginning finishing with a crisp, dry finish. cheers

Not a bad beer, but nothing special. Wouldn't be a bad beer to mix with a night of pizza and baseball.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Bottled. Light yellow color. A very slight skunkiness in the nose and the taste. Very watery body. A hint of bitterness, but mostly tasteless, apart from the skunkiness. Re-rate: Had a case of unskunked bottles. Although still a bit too mild, I really liked the creaminess and the slight malty sweetness. This + no skunkiness makes it a really enjoyable lager
