Ungstrup (34953) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2004
An orange beer with a fine dense white head. The aroma is very sweet and grainy. The flavor is also sweet with notes of grain and straw. A nice refreshing lager.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Very pretty fully golden beer. A bit of malt and some hoppiness. But basically just a good lager. 160704

rlgk (18731) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2004
Yellow/golden, small head. Aroma is clearly grassy and with some hops. Flavor is both malty and hoppy, and ok balanced lager with a malty finish.

Bov (12109) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 3, 2004
6% - clear bright amber colour, the foam disappears very quickly, agrumes and alcohol in the nose with a hint of plastic, lot of carbonation, very sweet and oily, decent malt backbone, the aftertaste is short and quite dry which makes it just drinkable - definitely qualifying for a malt liquor

Bottle. Golden colour. Small white head. Bit maltiness in the aroma along with some grass and hops. The flavor is a bit malty, sweet and grainy. Simpel thin pale lager.

DocLock (10081) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Got this from a Georgia colleague. Hazy gold pour with big citrus aroma and many citrus elements in the taste, including lemon, grapefruit, orange, and subdued hops. Smooth finish. Not bad.

A lager like so many others. Well, ok, it has some barley/malt in the aroma thats a little bit pleasent.

PorterPounder (7539) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Pale gold cloudy, leaning towards specimen appearence, light white head, no lacing. Aroma of orange cake mix with extra doses of yeast thrown in. Sour flavor, with too much of an emphasis on yeast. Has some biscuity notes in there as well with a tad bit of candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick, decent. Overall, about the most redeeming thing about this one is the classic painted bottle - it just says Russia all over it - looks sharp.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Pours a very pale clear golden with an airy, puffy white head. Dry aroma has a mild Saaz hoppiness. Body starts surprisingly semi-sweet with hints of cookie dough and caramel, before a more biting carbonation and dry bitterness take over. Quite drinkable and refreshing. This was much better than I had expected.

Sigmund (6894) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2004
(330 ml clear bottle, bought in Denmark). Golden colour, not entirely clear (cold filtered). A whiff of Heineken-like freshness when you open the bottle, disappears in the glass, where the aroma is weak malty with notes of boiled vegetables and wet cardboard, just a faint hint of catpiss (clear bottle?). Flavour is lightly malty with an unpleasant sweetness, notes of boiled carrots and maize (corn). Low on hops. Little aftertaste. The Russians may keep this beer to themselves, as far as Im concerned.
