Undated bottle, honestly, I’m not even sure. Drinking it would suggest maybe 1-2 years, but that’s just a guess. Anyways, consumed on 8/4/06.DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Still a pretty strong pour. Large, white head recedes steadily to cover, with minimal lacing and an absolute flurry of large bubbles rising. Dulled-bronze/amber body is quite dark for a pale lager. Protein break looks to be left on the bottom, so it must be a fairly aged sample, I guess.
Nose is a touch of apples, followed by crisp lager yeast bite and light base malt honey. No hops, bitterness or otherwise, with some minerals and spring water. But not even a touch of DMS. Some oxidation, perhaps? Giving it the benefit of the doubt, for being quite old, assumedly, it’s actually a fairly pleasant smell and must be pretty crisp and dry when young.
In the flavor, I’m astounded to find, smoke??? Definitely unmistakeable phenols associated with Bamberg smoked malts. And that touch of earthy, dry, smoked malt. Not sure how that got in there, and it’s more phenol than actual smoke. Could be just a mix of caramel and oxidation. But pretty stale and with low carbonation in the texture despite the flurry of bubbles. No hop bitterness, some yeast minerals and no alcohol. Very not-pale-lager-like. Definitely some chemicals in there (it says Antioxydant 122 on the recipe bill). More like a california common or amber ale. I’d like to try a fresh bottle, and in all fairness, I certainly will.
I believe this one pops my Bolivia cherry. Bottle from Super Saver. Pale gold pour with 1-finger creamy white head. Aroma of hopcitrus, pale malt, some grassy lemon. The flavor is harsh, definitely an odd metallic citrusy tart flavor that I’ve not encountered before, and hope not to again. User37895 (3042) - - JUN 11, 2006
I know I’ve said this with some of these recent swills, but this one poured with really the least color I’ve ever seen. There was a somewhat stable pillowy head that kep this one from being totally ugly. The aroma was of sweet grains and corn. The flavor was sweet and spicey, the latter very unexpected. Unfortunately, rather than just being your every day corn swill, this thing had a nasty band-aid like aftertaste that killed it. Mouthfeel was about average for the style, a touch thin.

A pale orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with a light touch of straw, while the flavor is a weird mixture of metal and oranges. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a pale pilsener golden with a fair, creamy, white head. Aroma of corn and rice. Medium body with strange accents of coal and some smoke (?) - mysterious. Bitter finish. 070606

Bottle. Pale golden colour with a medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma and taste. Light body with a light dry finish. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Clear piss yellow, ok white head. Weak aroma of fruit and a little bit hop. Weird flavor of sourish vegetable and light malt. Quite dry. Almost as bad as expected! rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2006
Very pale yellow, white head. Aroma from boiled vegetables. No flavor at first, than some smoke (!) shows. Smoky finish as well. larsniclas (7187) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2006
