Dogbrick (14328) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Can from a small tourist bar at the river port in Bratislava. This brew is a clear golden color with a medium frothy white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Mild hops aroma with a touch of citrus zest. Light body with a clean mouthfeel and flavors of mildly spiced hops, bready malt and citrus. The finish is grassy hops with a short citrus aftertaste. Barely average overall.

crossovert (14145) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 If you get it fresh and in a can it can be really striking. It is a smooth, mellow pilsener, but one that you with want more and more of.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Clear golden body with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet (corn?), apple juice, slightly skunky. Taste is very mild -- medium sweet, bit of grassy in finish, and I can swear that I taste the alcohol. Light-medium body.

BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden straw yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet corn, wet grains, earthy and spicy hops and dust. Flavor is malt forward with corn sweetness and bright, spicy Noble hops and a dry finish. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation.

bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
Can from Fonefan, thanks! Brewed by Heineken Sopron, Hungary. Soft grassy aroma with aluminium notes. Grassy hopbitter flavor, somewhat grainy. Medium bodied with a hint of metal in the aftertaste. Slightly disappointing.

Rune (13764) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2010
500ml from a dark green bottle with a gold coloured foil around the neck. Picked up at Systembolaget Kiruna during a beer trip to Swedish Lapland last October. Chalky white head reduced to a few patches on the surface. Spotty lacework on the glass. Clear gold body. Grainy smell with notes of grass. Sweet pale malts up front with notes of noble hops. On the sweet side of a bittersweet ending. Slightly oily palate. Food friendly (shared with Frau Eva, Tromsø, 23.01.2010).

Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2000
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 courtesy of Toni Hutter; canned - clear golden beer with a poor head retention; vaguely malty and corny aroma; medium-bodied and gently sticky; decently tasty and with a moderate bitterness; pretty long malty and aromatic finish - acceptable

hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a yellow color with a white head. Citrus, dried grass and generic sweetness.

Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2004
Another unimpressive LCBO import. Lighty saaz hopped. Malty sweet, dry and sour finish, creamy. Fizzy

thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2006
Bright golden colour white steady white head. Great taste, quite hopp with a slight fruity flavour.
