Gold, diminishing offwhite head. No aroma to speak of. Malty. Where are the hops? Caramel, some oxidisation. I don’t know if I got a bad bottle or what. Reasonably full-bodied for a lager but direly lacking in all other respects. Perhaps Count Grischnackh killed Euronymous because the latter gave him a bottle of this. Who knows?

Pale amber colour with a white head. Aroma of hops and malt. A little bitter flavour. Nisse666 (7988) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2009
Better the the ordinary Pripps Blå, but unfortunatly not that much. Those beers are for a foregin old regim. Nuffield (4199) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Dusty, oxidized, musty. Er, not very good at any rate. I didn’t know that this was an old bottle (shared with JK and other Minnesotans) but I put very clearly in my notes that this seemed old. If you find it around, do not purchase. JK (6295) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2007
I talked Brad(brewfiend) in to opening this beer, a full five years past its best-by date. And it is a in a green bottle. Considering all this, it was surprisingly good. Somehow not lightstruck or skunked.. It is a solid lager that I would drink again, but not at the nearly $3 cost.

Sickly pale golden brown color. No skunk on this lager but plenty of honey and corn malt. Sweet malty body with a thick mouthfeel. Surprisingly good for a lager. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2007
A 12-oz bottle shared by brewfiend. This is cool! A retired and aged beer; don’t get many of those. Pours a pale golden amber with a small white head that leaves behind a nice lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, sweet apples, and some multi-grain malt. Taste is a little watery, medium body and some fruitiness. Finish is silky with some dryness.

(Bottle 33 cl) Fully golden with a small head. Very smooth and malty with quite some sweetness in there and notes of caramel. Nice all right. 190700 PorterPounder (8290) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Blue Max Liquors, Burnsville, Mn - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark golden with a firm white head. Yeasty aroma, with a touch of fresh lake water accents. Flavor is yeasty with an underlying presence of corn. Some honey sweetness redeems it somewhat. Creamy mouthfeel for a lager. Overall a decent lager - even if the bottle says best if by 12 Aug 02!!!!
