UPDATED: MAR 13, 2008 Not bad. Nice thick and foamy head to start off with, with aromas of strong hops. Slightly skunky smelling as well. Taste is harsh hops with some alcohol in there as well. Maybe a little too strong? Good beer for a summer day though. I just can’t get over the harshness. sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2004
(Bottled, very nice bottle indeed) Typical lager color with small, tight and lacy head. Very crisp, hoppy aroma - this must be pilsener, not lager. Flavor is more like in regular lager, but still quite hoppy and crisp. Light-bodied, crisp (how many times can I repeat that word in one rating?), palate with medium carbonation. A light but refreshing and pretty hoppy (although harsh) brew. Not bad if you happen to be thirsty. GoldenCrown (18) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2004
Gorgeous thick foamy head, sweet aroma and amber colouration. Robust pungent, bitter flavour with a sour aftertaste. If the varying tastes could be refined it would actually be a fascinating palate. As it is, its too loud, and all at once. run20six2 (123) - USA - APR 22, 2004
Had this one up in Canada sitting at the bar with my girlfriends dad. Very nice tasting beer, kinda reminded me of a stronger and darker heineken roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Hoppy bitter taste with smooth finish. The bitterness seems to fad as you get to the bottom of the bottle. Aroma smells similar to a Heineken or a Carlsberg and appearance is the same as well. Overall pretty good, but overpriced.

Bottle - Hoppy with stale aroma. Appearance was average with small rocky head. Flavor and palate was weak hops. Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2004 A tad too bubbly, but generally a good beer - unlike other macros, this one tasted like a real beer. Nice lager smell to it, and some hops in there. Besides, the swing top bottle makes a nice planter as well. jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 13, 2004
The skunkiest aroma I have ever smelled in my life issued from this beer. Points for the cool bottle. Decent beer with some dry hops; better than the other big import lagers. dberger624 (1028) - Voorhees, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2004
Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Good drinkable beer. Didn't have thet bottled skunkt smell or taste. Eructoblaster (4370) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Nice and limpid golden body topped with a quick fading head. Decent malty nose and average bittersweet taste. Its final is quite fair for that kind of average lager. Not very complex. Without being an outstanding beer, this is definitely better than Heineken.
