On my last visit to the United States, in 1996, I was served a substance called Bud Ice in a plastic cup, which tasted of very cold water. Trying to broaden my beer horizons beyond the British Isles, I saw this in my local supermarket, expecting something equally pale, bland, and charmless. From my first sight of this delightful amber drop I knew I was entering an altogether different beer dimension. A great taste followed by a wonderfully satisfying dryness, intriguingly different from the bitterness in English and Scottish beers. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2005
Tap. Nice head. Abundant lacing. Amber color. Sweet caramel malt flavor in the intial taste followed by a hop flavor.. Finishes a bit bitter and dry. Not bad. Sirjohn03 (39) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2005
amber color with a white head. flavor is simple and light, easy to drink. slightly hoppy and malty, finishes smooth, not a bad lager NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 17, 2005
Amber pour with decent head retention. Aromas of flowery hops and some oddball crystal malt thing. I admit, I really used to hate the way this stuff smelled! Fast forward a few years to present day, and I still can’t shake my dislike of the nose on this beer. I understand it better, but it still just rubs me the wrong way. Crystal malt flavors with a touch of earthy flavored maltiness. Moderately hopped for a lager. fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2005
A good overall beer. I’ll order this over any Miller, Budweiser, or similar. Hoppy, but not too hoppy, nice finish - a good overall beer.

This lager had a crisp hoppy aroma that was a great prelude to the rich flavor of hopps and malts that fill your mouth with the first sip. A somewhat cloudy appearance with thin head, this beer left an slightly dry finish...just enough to coax you into having that next sip a little sooner than you normally would...

Poured cloudy gold/amber in color. light sweet smell. Straight forward malty taste with a hoppy finish. Very smooth tasting. szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours golden yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is of grassy hops. Very easy to drink lager. A beer that is consistent. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2005
