ogivlado (7655) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 20, 2007
Bottled(330ml). From some souvenir shop in San Marino as Birra dalla Storia.
One bottle costs 3.5, whilst you can get three for 10. So I bought 3, with Stallin, Josip Broz Tito and Mussolini (Duce) on label. There was also Che Guevara, Lenin, Hitler, etc. Stallin I drunk with Doggythedog, while Tito I had on Labor Day, and Mussolini is still waiting. Good and interesting idea, but the major problem is that beer is simply awful. Pours a golden colour with small white airy head and stale honey nose. Cardboard and caramel taste with stale vegetable notes and unpleasant sweet finish.

sinte (550) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle 0.66L. Pale yellow body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with a fair lacing; nice bubbles coming up from the center-bottom of the glass. Moderate hoppy aroma (flowers, herbal) with a light-to-moderate malty note. Light bitter and sweet flavour: well balanced but very attenuated; short finish. Light body with a watery texture; dry finish; soft carbonation. Honest standard lager, not particulartly satisfactory; in the complex a watery/ dilute feeling prevails.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2007
come out of the bottle a pale yellow with a half inch of frothy white head up top. Has a grainy nose and is reminiscent of czech pils. taste is minimal minus the prickly hops that are forced to the front by the over carbonation.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. Earthy, lemony nose... very subtle... discreet. Maybe a meaty note. The flavor is crisp, but dull and a bit stale... just not much going on. Medium-bodied and spritzy. Short, very crisp, clean finish.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Straw, huge head. The aroma has notes of malt, corn, straw and a bit of hops - and it signals:boooooring.... This impression was fully met in the flavour, that is uninspiring and unbalanced. Life is too short for beers like this....

Marko (5402) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 23, 2007
As Birra della Storia - Il Compagno (Stalin) and shared with ozujsko (thanks!)
Poured a big thick fluffy white head. Chemicals ftw, eh ? Golden colour, lively carbonation. The nose is a bit stale, malty and honey with hints of wine. The taste is... bad. Cardboard, hints of grapes, some hops, a bit oily, but somehow... dry. Almost mouthpuckeringly so. Yet another crappy gimmick beer. How nice.

FrankJohansen (3618) - Sabro, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle. Clear olden colour with a small fizzy head. Pretty mainstream boring pale lager.

faroeviking (10664) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a bubbly mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of grass, bit malty and fruity. Flavour is grassy, some malt, fruity with some lemon. Dry bitterish finish. A quite refreshing beer.

SilkTork (5689) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A dull pale lager with a light, dirty bitterness of no distinction or character. Clings to the mouth unpleasantly. Slight whiff and taste of corn. Unsatisfactory.
