Beerdedone (3308) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Can. Pours golden with a decent whte head. Aroma of grain, corn, and sweet malts. Flavor is bland, corn, grain, slight hops. Thin body.

LCBO can from 2 years ago. I forgot I had this in my "beer cellar". Lets see how time aged this. Sparkling body with a bleached white head. Grainy tin aroma, corn and minerals too. Sweet malty corn flavour, with some grain. There were chuncks in this? Strange. I hope it doesnt make me ill. Ok.

jfm (1724) - Holbk, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle. Golden color with a small white head. Very thin and very light malty body with a thin palate. Very boring and watery.

DuffMan (9738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Large bottle (1L I think), bought in Taiwan. Classic clear-golden yellow pale lager appearance. Surprisingly, I can pick out some green hops in the aroma. Palate is on the thin side, but finishes nicely with a very mild hop note. Better than I expected-- I wonder if this is because I had it in its country of origin (and maybe therefore it was fresher)?

Hildigltur (5105) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden coloured. Very weak aroma. Weak and quite sweet flavour. Watery.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Clear golden appearance. Strong lemony aroma and flavor, pretty sweet, almost shandy-ish, mild bitterness in the finish. An OK refresher.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
Bottled. Pours a clear golden, with a white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Staste is sweet, with just a tad hoppy bitterness. A rather bland beer.

quikgamer (3) - TAIWAN - SEP 1, 2005 does not count
Got this in a can, poured it into a glass. Saw tons of floating debri in the beer, not good appearance at all. The taste is of putrid rice water and a weird sweetness is present, very idustrial tasting. The can design is about as appealing as its flavor.

If in Taiwan, stick with Coke--it comes in bottles anyway. Not a beer worth taking home, even if the catchy name convinces you.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2005
A pleasant aroma upon opening but after that its all down hill.A strange mouthfeel with a lingering dryness.It claims to have won gold medals but were? Reminds me of Heineken-yes its that poor.
