luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottled. Beer is a clear light orange-gold color with a small, frothy, white, mostly and rapidly diminishing head. The aroma is kind of icky: Malty with light notes of toasted grain, light-to-moderate note of cereal; Hoppy with a light note of herb; Yeasty with a light sweet dough note; Light miscellaneous notes of cardboard and DMS. Not clean, doesn’t smell like something you’d want to drink. But I’m a trooper, so here it goes. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with a short, lightly acidic, trace sweet finish. Husky/metallic aftertaste, along with a faint suggestion of airfreshener. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average. Forgettable.

Ernest (7815) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain/husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky/unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Poor.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Rich, deep golden hued, big, puffy, lasting, snow-white head. Nice. Aroma: clean, lightly floral, and honeyed. Very even-handed and stable. Malty, but not belligerent. Taste: fresh, flush malt, cereal grains prominent, crisply leaving the mouth bone-dry, and shy of brittle. Great texture and mouthfeel here, malt shines bright on the palate, then wryly washes away. Nice fruit notes, apple, pear, chime in around the middle, more honey and herb. Finishes clean and zesty. Medium bodied, fully flavored, and truly delicious. $4 for a 500ml bottle. Worth it, in this case.

DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Clear golden pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, some hopcit and honey. The flavor is pale malty up front, with some honey and hopcit emerging, and a crisp finish.

Well, this isn’t my favorite kind of beer style, so it only gets a seven overall, but this was a dandy grab. Golden color with some straw hay brown hues. Large head on the pour and it stuck around for a while. Appearance would have been higher if there was better lacing. The aroma was bready and of grass. The flavor was strong grassy Saaz hops with sweet biscuit and bread notes underneath, keeping this one short of a pilsner in character.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Pours copper with a white head. Smells malty with some peppery splashes and dough. Tastes sweet with nutty qualities. Surprisingly full mouthfeel.

3.2
TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle. Gold bodied with a small white head. Nose is grainy and grassy. Light toasty malts and buttered biscuits. Touch of lemon as well. Taste is grassy, light hoppy, grainy and biscuity. Some light lemon as well. Body is light-medium and crisp. Bit of dryness around the edges. Finishes with lots of sweet malt, light lemon, grassy notes, light straw, grains and Euro hops. Nice summer beer!

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Golden coloured with an off-white head. Medium carbonated. Slightly sweet and slightly sour. Not much to taste though.

2.9
Ungstrup (38381) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 2, 2006
An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and malty, combined with light caramel notes. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of caramel and a good hoppiness, leading to a dry and lightly bitter end.
