highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2008
So we drive way out west to Sydney’s Vietnamese enclave of Cabramatta and immerse ourselves in a bustling world of noodle stalls, sugar cane juice vendors and unfamiliar seafood. Close your eyes and you could almost be in Asia. I spot a bottle shop and wander in on the off-chance I might find some obscure Viet or other Asian imports. Lo and behold, there are four beers I haven’t had before. Two Italians, a Mexican and this Slovak. Go figure. I get talking to a charming Vietnamese-Australian local and ask her about the beer situation. She says: "In Vietnam, we import Australian beer. There is no reason to reverse the process." Fair enough. This Slovak pils showed decent head retention. Bizarre floral/herbal aroma for a pils. Tangerine bath salts and violets atop oxidsed cardboard. Perhaps a sharp minty note. Not entirely unpleasant to smell but really unusual. The soapy mouthfeel and soft carbonation is the best thing about it. All malts on the tongue. Soft citrus and peach. Peculiar stuff. (500ml bottle from Vintage Cellars, Cabramatta. BB15/7/08)

xcris (3) - ROMANIA - FEB 22, 2008 does not count
Bottle (Slovakia): draft quality pilsner, a bit light as appearance, a bit heavy upon. Some sweet with yeast flavour; Draught: passable, but with moderation; Can: forget it!

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma with some malt and some grassy Saaz hops. Sweetish malty flavor with a rather light bitter hoppiness in the finish. Body is rather light. Not that bad, but could use some more hoppiness, body and character in general. Oh, and I like the bird on the label.

harrisoni (17996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 Can at HogTownHarry Fest 08. OK lager. Bit thin and horrible to be honest. But you know what? It’s a lager. 2/5. Bottle from a colleague at work. Clear gold lasting white head. Floral lemony aroma. Decent pilsner Czech style. Definite malty flavour. Some hop which could be more bitter and lemony on the finish, but it’s perfectly fine. Some sweetness from ABV rather than the clean 4% svetly. Fullness in the mouth. A malty Czech pilsner. It’s muted but totally fine.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Very minor foggy tone to a straw color. Crčme head. Minor cereal nose with a stronger metallic tone. Flavor is tart in a way I don’t consider positive. Metallic edge is there, but not the biggest character of the ride. Feel is typical. Overall this is average stuff. There is nothing interesting about it and the metallic and dirty edge just kind of kills it from ever being interesting.

A Mes rate: Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08
Horrible yellow gold with a thin white head. Harsh cardboard aroma that made me cough. Similar flavour. Heavily overcarbed making it sting. I think I feel ill...

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours golden, slightly hazy. Moderate fluffy white head, some lacing. Aroma is grainy maltiness, but with a bit of cheap plastic smell. Flavor is doughy and full, but has some cheap syrupy sweetness to it and boiled vegetable flavors. Adjunct flavors are unsettling. Light bitterness lingers in the finish, as well as some oily, grassy hop flavors. Honestly, a bit hard to finish.
