UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 I love my lagers, and this was a very good one. Nice amber color with some head and right amount of carb. Crisp and refreshing. I only had time for one bottle so far. I might come back to raise the rating in the future. STAMEEX (5) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2004 does not count
This is an awesomely(yes awesomely) smooth beer that I think has a terrific flavor. Can’t say I’ve had a better mainstream lager. BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Bottle: This is one of the best widespread lagers I’ve tasted. Amber in color with a small white head. Aroma has corn, fruit, hops, and spice. Flavor: spice, light fruit, toast, light malt. Very nice lager that is nice to drink at cooler temperatures that I would drink most beers. Refreshing. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2004
Had this on tap while watching some live bands at Arlene’s Grocery in Manhattan. Thanks to Brian for the hookup. Nose of spice and toasted malt with a hint of wine. The brew is a clear amber and has a quickly diminishing white frothy head that leaves virtually no lacing. This lager has mad flavor for the style; spicy, fruity, and toasty. The light body is creamy and soft, and feels chalky at the finish. A wicked lager to be sure. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2004
A very popular beer here at ASU. It good but way over rated. A bit dark with a tan head.

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is corny fruity hops, but is weak. Falvor is fruity malt but is otherwise fairly nondescript. Surprisingly easy to drink. Better than most macroswill. Maybe a little watery, but otherwise surprisingly good for a lager, which I don’t usually enjoy. I would have a few more of this one. iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Man this has caught on like wild fire! A good lager to put that fire out on a hot summer day without mortgaging the house!I must rate it a notch below Sam Adams though certainly way above those carbonated urine offerings. Can’t compete with the elites yet carries enough color, taste and body for a quick solid quencher.

Fantastic widespread lager. Does not have much of the carbonated gaseous pain that many other big time lagers have. Nice spiciness beneath, and a full flavor. Color is also very attractive for a bar. Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2004
This is bullshit to drink after having Old Rasputin Stout. It is extremely thin and like water. SHD (17) - Palm Harbor, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2004
This is a great beer anytime - having spent years drinking Ausralian beer, this is an easy transition. Hard to find other mass market beers in Florida that compete for flavor.
