2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml glass, $2 @ Binny’s. Poured in my straight shot Trumer glass. Deep golden color, but with some floating bits. Puffy head that leaves some lace as it dwindles. Solid pils smell, though a touch of oxidation and maybe phenol. Initial taste impression is kind of watery. No date on the bottle, but I’m guessing it’s gotten old on the shelf. Gotta go with the consensus here; it’s another imported pilsener, a style that does not travel well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 6-23-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, fair amount of lacing, and very little visible carbonation. The Aroma is lightly malty, grain, grassy, citrus hops, and sweet. Taste is crisp, lightly malty and grassy hops. The Palate is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is light bodied. Overall, the texture of this beer is very watery and thin and I did not enjoy the flavor of this beer. This is a beer that is not on my list to drink again and a beer that I do not recommend.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale gold with a frothy white head....
Oddly, I pick up a bubblegum/banana aroma.....
Taste is straw, pilsner, with a steady hoppy bitterness....
The wheat ale scent doesn’t alter the taste at all.....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a pale straw color with a thick, tightly foamed brite white head that is a finger thick and lasts forever at 1 inch thick. It literally doesn’t recede. Tiny bubbles race towards the top of this crystal clear beer.
Theres a good malt/hop balance, it smells typical of the style with pale malts and slightly herbal hops. Perhaps a bit sweeter smelling than most.
The taste follows the smell, perhaps a bit more bitter than expected, slightly watery.
It is starkly average for a German pils, though above most american versions.
