GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Pours pale yellow w/ medium semi creamy froth reducing to a nice white layer of pancake patter. Aroma is brisk w/ slight molded skunk and hay. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are malty w/ brisk yet muted hop and grass. Not real complex but agreeable in nature. Finish invites another sip w/ its moderte bittering. Better than other brews from this region.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle: Pale yellow, light white head. Nose of light alcohol and grainy malts. A bit of biscuit and husk. Light hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes a bit metallic and zesty. Not a bad lager, just typical of what youd expect.

nick76 (4397) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2006
The aroma is pale malts and light grassy hops. The appearance is gold with a small foamy head. The flavor is sweet and somewhat bitter. The palate is thin. The finish is malty and lightly sour. This is a weak lager all around but not a bad tasting one.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2006
From a 1 pt. 9 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Poured a slightly chill hazy lager golden with foamy white head that settled into a fine lacing. Aromas of sweet pale malts and herbal, spicy and grassy hops. Fizzy carbonation and a crisp, smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant, but bland tasting, sweet pale malts that dont have much of a taste, just a light breadiness, herbal and spicy hops, soft in their taste and bitterness, a very light taste of alcohol towards the end and a dryish, sweet, mineral malt finish, the drinkability is average at best. If this was offered to me for free, I would drink it again, but I wont be paying for it again. Decent, o.k. drinkability, but there are better euro pale lagers in the marketplace.

ogivlado (7706) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 3, 2006
Bottled(500ml). -just another boring and bland Lithuanian lager. Aroma is malty with hints of corn and hay. Of course flavor is also sweet...

DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
(500 ml bottle: $2.29 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) This beer doesnt smell too bad, but the flavor is just attrocious. Not just cardboard, but stale, nasty cardboard has completely taken over. Grain and corn for a base, sweetness is mild, and theres a hint of bitterness, but it doesnt help. Its only 5% ABV, but I would have bet it was higher. Wet cardboard in the nose is less intrusive than in the flavor, so some cereal grains give the nose a positive element. Light-bodied with average carbonation, but obviously this beer isnt close to being clean and refreshing on the palate. Medium straw in color and very hazy appearance. Fluffy, white head settles to a thin island in the center of the glass. No date on the bottle or label, but maybe thats a good thing. Very bad beer.

PorterPounder (7810) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Greens Beverage - Greenville, SC. - 500 ml bottle. Pours a very light pale golden, with a spongy snow white head that sticks around a while and leacves thck lacing. Grainy aroma with hints of grass and a bit of skunkness. Crisp, predictable eastern European lager flavor. Some grassy flavor, hint of corn, dash of Saaz hoppiness. Clean, even mouthfeel. Refreshing to say the least after a day of hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
