Not a bad aroma really, like many euro lagers, just not really any aroma. Poured a watery golden color with a smallish diminishing head. Doesnt taste bad really. Mild sweetness with a malt profile and scant hops in the aftertaste. Better than many pale lagers and pretty drinkable all in all due to its almost total lack of carbonation which is usually out of control in pale lagers.

Eh. Ive had better, but Ive definately had worse. Very light and easy to drink, not bad on a hot summer day (it was 105f out while I was grilling some steak and drinking one of these). Slightly sweet, A touch of honey and sweet malts, almost no hops, a tiny european earthiness. If I disliked anything darker than an amber this would be a solid beer.

This beer sucks. The flavors and balance are all off, and to be honest, Id rather drink Mexican or Turkish tap water than try this drivel again

12 oz bottle - La Traviata Restaurant, Austin, Tx. Pours a straw colored light to medium golden with a sligltly fluffy head and decent lacing. Aroma has a bit of a salty, olive oil like essence to it which is quite pleasent. Same olive oil essence carries over to the flavor which is a nice change of pace from the regular run of the mill pale lagers. Some sweet honey notes up front with a slighlty salty tinge on the back end. Smooth, clean palate. Not earth shaking, but very enjoyable.

Golden colored with a thin head. Very malty grain aroma. Flavor is full of toasted malt taste with little to no bitterness. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Braudog (6493) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bright yellow with a castle of white foam protecting it. Almost a spicy aroma, and indeed this beer delivers a more earthy flavor that most European pilsners ... but still rooted in its maltiness. Respectable bitterness in the finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 66 cl) Nice golden colur with a massive, pretty head. Typical Italian lager: mild, some malty sweetness and not that much character. 180603

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2005
One of the better Mediterranean lagers. But thats not saying much. Pale gold with a short hello-goodbye head. Surprisingly sweet biscuity-malt aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, thin to medium body. Lots of malt on the tongue and some balancing bitterness. Better than expected - but my expectations were low.... (Bottle)

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pale golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Malty metallic aroma with a bit of hops but very small bit.Light malty taste with a bit of maybe some caramel in there along with a decent hop showing at the end.Nothing special at all but for$1.29 it was worth a try.

A good solid grainy beer. Bloody expensive though. Lots of malt and grains.
