Bottle in Europe. Perhaps the bottle was old, but beer was quite bitter and unpleasant. Never again. SDalkoholic (2424) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Bottle in the USA. Had some skunk in the aroma. Drinking this wasn’t much different from all the euro macro’s. Would maybe pick this up again if i saw it in a can. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Had in austria. I know I didnt like this beer in the USA when I had it and I had better expectations for it in Austria. I was dissapointed. Very bland overall with a harsh astringent aftertaste and overly carbonated. Flavor is also too grainy and cereal like. Not good. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Can. Pale yellow with a nice sized white head. Grassy grainy hop aroma. Fairly unexciting with a very mild bitterness with a touch of malt. Mainstream Euro lage. Light palate. Drinkably boring. Marko (6088) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 17, 2004
Nothing too impressive, nice colour and ok head, but has a not-really-nice malty aroma and taste, and nothing much more. It was in the fridge fo 8 hours, so it was cold, but it wasn’t refreshing at all. It’s passable overall.

Typical lager, with nothing to stand up above standart.
Best seved cold on a hot spring/ summerday Belly Full O Beer (57) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Pours a rich golden colour. Crisp refreshing taste. Not a great complex beer but great for sitting out in the sun. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Clear bright yellow hue, small, but well-retained head. Sweetly aromatic from afar: a little floral, dry hops, on the pilsener side, with a touch more sweetness. I was a bit put off by an initial resemblance in the aroma to typical American lagers, but that soon passed. Decent, but short finish. Clean and smooth, but woefully short on flavor of any kind. Pretty much lock-in-step with any old lager. Light body, minimal texture, nothing terrible here, but absolutely nothing to remember it by, either.

NSLC Beer Gala. Can. Golden colour with a fizzy white head. Toasted wheat, faint corn aroma, similar flavours, with a light nutty bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly watery mouthfeel. invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Can in Tomsk, Siberia. The can proudly says that it’s Austua’s Finest Beer or something like that. If this is true then God help that country. Tastes slightly hoppy and gassy.
