2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was refreshing to say the least. At the worst something to wash out the palate between heavier beers. Very light, but very thirst quenching.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reasonable but thin, light yellow and watery, but with some elements of a good pils; smooth yet biting, more malt needed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The prototypical lager pour, a translucent gold, bright white head that is impressive in size, frothy in texture and a nice sheet of lace is left after the head erodes. Nose is the quintessential lager, all malt, crisp and clean and a tad sweet with the start malt laden, somewhat sweet, the top middling in its feel. Finish is moderately carbonated, the hops present but understated, dry and long lasting aftertaste, an average lager, nothing that “Trips My Trigger”.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
For those out there that live to trash American light beers, you should try this first. Most American light beers are phenomenal compared to this beer. Its pale, bland, thin... bad, just plain bad.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Useless and forgettable lager: yellowish color, fast dying head, thin body, sweetish palate... The beer for those who doesn't like beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden. Sour aroma. Some cereal flavor here but nevertheless a meaningless standard lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean tasting beer. Thick white head. Not much in the way of hoppiness to it. Very slight aftertaste reminicent of Budweiser or Miller. Nice straw color. Overall a refreshing beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big thick head that is slightly creamy. Little carbonation but good lacing down the glass. Aroma has a slight wheat/yeast overtone. Just malt otherwise. Color is a light/pale gold. Flavor is pretty watered down but still not that bad. Mainly malts. Finish is smooth and crisp with very little aftertaste and a minimal hop bitterness. Much better than the typical american "lite" beers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly good for such a pale lager...hops are fragrant, mouthfeel is reasonably good, balance is decent, and it's cleaner than many American counterparts...no DMS or metal here. It may not look like much, but it's decent. It's odd how sometimes the simplest/weakest beers are the best from a brewery.
