BückDich (5477) - 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 you’d expect.

nick76 (4402) - 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 don’t 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 won’t be paying for it again. Decent, o.k. drinkability, but there are better euro pale lagers in the marketplace.

ogivlado (8097) - 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 (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
(500 ml bottle: $2.29 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) This beer doesn’t 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 there’s a hint of bitterness, but it doesn’t help. It’s 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 isn’t 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 that’s a good thing. Very bad beer.

2.4
PorterPounder (8268) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Green’s 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.

2.4
Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Can. Pale gold, smallish head on top. Sweet, simplistic, grassy aroma. Some off grain behind. Flavour served as sweet malt up front with bitter, green raw, grassy aftertaste. Medium strong alcoholic presence.

1.6
Beerdedone (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malts, corn-like. Flavor is grain, sweet malts, spices, carbonation. Nothing appealing.

1.8
oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, mediumsized head. Malt and hops in aroma. Flavour is smooth malty and hoppy. Still nothing to be really excited about. Feels clean.

1.2
mabjork (693) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden in colour. Rich white head, lacings. The aroma is hoppy and bitter. It’s main flavour is that of malt with hints of hops. Quite watery.
