Winefly (60) - KEW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2004
This is my kinda beer. Its got the lot and is far superior for mine, than the Heineken. It has a good solid taste and leaves a good after taste. I liked it.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2004
Really not that interesting. Golden colour with big but not lasting head. Aroma is virtually not existing. Flavor is under average.

Spanner (60) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2004
Only madmen pay extra for the swing-top bottle! Fine light lager with few bubbles-and a pop top! Spanner.

hershiser2 (2713) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
This is a very average beer in an overpriced container. The smell was not inviting because there was virtually no smell, other than a faint hint of a beer. Not really worth trying, because of the price, because it's not something I would see someone wanting to drink when they want a tasty brew.

TBone (16834) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Can Good lager with hoppy aroma. This gives some personality to otherwise light to medium bodied "basic lager". Finishing flavor is average and moderately bitter. (5/3/6/3/11 2.8)
Re-rated, bottled, alc. 4.5% ABV (BB 03/2005)
Normal lager color with a good white head, lace. A bit skunked hoppy aroma. Medium bodied, sweety malts - almost like sweet corn - flavor with decent hoppy bitterness in the finish. Should be better when fresh. (5/2/4/3/10 2.4)

becksgenius (110) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2004
In the same class, as heine, and pilsner urquell. maybe even becks. quite skunky upon opening, and not something i really enjoy, but in a pinch it does fine.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Not skunked: Clean clear color, hoppyy aroma, smooth sweet finish, not a bad lager. However it's greatest asset (it's supercool bottle) is also it's greatest downfall as it is often skunked.

rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2004
what intrigued me about this beer was the bottle. i liked this beer when i first sampled but since i've sampled so many others - i've determined that this beer is one of the skunkiest beers out there! this beer is what i guage skunkiness with!

SpringsLicker (3560) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2004
When it's good it's good, when It's bad (which is most of the time) it's bad. In fact it's usually bad so often that people think it's supposed to be skunky. A step up from Heineken, but it's hard to find one that doesn't suffer from "Green Bottle Syndrome".

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Good crisp taste. the smell leaves a lot to be desired, but this is a favorite beer of mine. Clean taste, yet crisp and bitter, but not like an IPA. Good head, but has to have a good pour to make it appear. very drinkable, but not spectacular, and good everyday beer, but must be colder than it should be.
