3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I bought this bottle in Kempten. It has a nice amber colour. The head disappear quickly though, leaving just a very thin ring. It has a balanced smell between malt and hops and a little metallic smell. The taste is a bit malty with a nice hoppy aftertaste. There is a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle purchased at Manchester Wine and Liquors. I have a feeling this bottle is over a year old based on my profound experience with this store and the faded colorings on the price tag. Was stored in the back of a bottom shelf, though, at room temp. Aroma is somewhat fruity, estery, and grasslike. Some mild banana yeastiness present as well. A bit metallic and somewhat sweet. Interesting enough aroma. Transparent golden color with a small whitish quickly dissipating head. Start has a small smoked maltiness. Almost musty. A bit of spicy, astringent, hoppy bittermess to finish. A touch dry. This is very good in the world of pale lagers, but it’s still a pale lager...

(Bottle 50 cl) Very pretty, fully golden beer with a tall, dense and creamy head. Quite full-bodied with a malty sweetness and a discreet bitterness. Solid brew if not overly refined. 140302

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Pale straw color with white head. Yeasty nose with hints of light/yellow citrus and some light graininess. Smooth mouthfeel with flavors of light lemony citrus, light malt, and balanced yeast. A fantastic light lager, very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with a nice frothy off-white head. The aroma is a bready with light grass and sweetness akin to over-ripe apples. The flavor is not half bad. Bread and light sour apple sweetness, some spicy/grassy hops. Fairly enjoyable on this unbearable torrid and humid day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dark golden with a good creamy white head that doesn’t last very long, not much lacing either, grassy and flowery aromas. Bready, cracker and apple flavors with a strange sourness. Medium bodied with a light and crisp mouthfeel, finishes dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL bottle. Pale gold pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a little sweet and bready with some hints of perfume and apple juice. There’s virtually nothing to this taste-wise. Low carbonation and thin-bodied. VERY soft and smooth going down. As close as a beer can come to silky. A little white-breadiness and butter. Well-balanced. I picked this up because my girlfriend liked the little boy on the label. So much for that. Not a worthwhile style for me.

(500ml bottle) Slightly hazed apple juice body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light grassy. Taste is medium sweet, bread, lemon, some grassy, light apple, spice. Light-medium body. I found this to be a flavorful and well-balanced beer with mild bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks, Allgauer, for letting us know that a pale lager can be a good thing. From the bottle, this pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head and solid carbonation. It’s got a sweet grassy aroma, some hints of apple, and mild herbal hops. It’s very soft in the mouth and easy to drink. The taste is a skillful balance between sweet malt and herbal hopping. The finish is clean and crisp. Nice refreshing brew.
