Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle from Bestway shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of grainy, dusty malts, sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts, mild green hops. Medium bodied.

2.8
crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2017
33cl can, nearly frozen. Pours a pale yellow, big white foamy head. It smells skunky and "beery". I’m fairly certain this is quite fresh because I’ve never seen it and the carton it was in proclaimed "new". It smells pretty good though once you let the sulphur die down. Smells like bread and herbs, rice, it smells fresh. Flavor isn’t as good, it is sulphury, salty, but dry and crackery, hint of maltiness. Its ok. One of the better ones in thsi style.

jercraigs (10921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2003
Blackout beer #1! Drank during massive blackout across Ontario.
Pale yellow, and fizzy. Pours big white head that vanishes. Smells faintly of hops. Bitter finish that doesn't linger on the tongue. Bit of alcohol esters in the background.

marcus (10736) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours yellow with a modest white head and a nondescript aroma. There is a light malt flavor with a trace of rice.

2.3
DuffMan (10723) - 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)?
