3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500ml bottle) Pours a huge, foamy, white head and a well carbonated, light golden body. As tbone mentions below, the lager laces nicely on the glass and the head has staying power. The nose gives a lemon and floral scent, slightly lactic and sweet. Fairly fizzy on the roof on ones mouth. A honey sweetness coupled with a perfume with a quick, sharp bitterness then finish. As it warms up - it gets a fuzzy banana flavour to it. I kind of liked it? Above average.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled (BB 02/2004)
Pale hazy yellow color. Nice white foamy head which stays longer than in normal lager, some lace. Aroma is soapy and slightly hoppy. Taste is malty and extremely sweet for a lager, quite full bodied. Some hops in finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow color with a light foamy white top. Fresh fruity aroma with hints of grass and a light tartness present. Slightly sugary front with hints of fruit and nary a hint of bitterness. Too sweet and a touch too alcoholic. Lacks balance of any kind.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Typical lager color, big foamy head. Original, fruity and soapy-malty aroma. Fruity, grassy flavor, quite malty and slightly sweet. Light to medium-bodied, a bit too carbonated, oily palate. Quite pleasant, malty lager with personality. Not bad at all!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 10072128, if that means anything to anyone. No date on the bottle, though.
I'm guessing mine is quite different from some of the others listed. While this is far from excellent, IMO, it's not bad at all, and certainly not as bad as I was expecting.
Pours a *really* pale yellow, as in almost white color with a tinge of yellow. Decent head that did okay and there was some decent lacing left down the glass.
Smell isn't very strong, but malt with a touch of hops.
Taste is also very mild. Definately has malt going on but it's not exactly complex. A bit of a malt aftertaste, albeit a small bit.
Mouthfeel is quite full and thick, much more than I was expecting. Drinkability is definately good as I may grab a few more of these next time I'm at the store. I know I have a good source (for the time being), but after reading the other scores, I think if a future bottle had any dust on it I might skip it.

Clear amber. Smells like post cheerio milk. Not as bad as i thought it would taste, but then again not really good. Body tastes alot like oates, horse food i say.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A small sized white head that poured creamy and smooth with fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was slightly hazy and carbonated with a golden hue. The nose was malty, light hops, sweet and some fruit notes. The flavor of this beer was sour, malty and lightly hopped. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a light bodied beer with very sparse lacing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a hazy dark yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was doughy and malty. The mouthfeel was tingly and smooth from start to finish with a malt hop butter bread flavor. An OK beer but nothing special.
