2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear straw yellow. Fizzy head for a short time. Light floral hoppy apple aroma. Flavours are, again, hops and apple. Lively carbed. Finishes dry, with lingering malt. Suprised. It was half decent.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Massive foamy white head sits atop a pale yellow body. Glass lacing is not too bad. The aroma of cheap lager permeates the air around as the beer is poured. The flavor is slightly hoppy along with a little bit of biscuity malt. Not too offensive but not great either.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My very first beer, so there is some attachment but decent enough to be a regular repeat. It's fairly pale, with a nice white head. The taste is slightly sweet (but not overpoweringly so) with a decent malt taste with adequate carbonation and a clean finish - maybe too clean as there's no memorable after-taste. It's by no means a complex beer but is better tasting than most mass-production Lager and miles over a Molson Cdn. Definitely worth a try...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was actually not a bad lager. Pours golden and cloudy, with a large rocky head. The smell is skunky, which I really do not like, but the taste makes up for the aroma. I mean do not get me wrong the taste is not amazing, but it is not bad for a lager.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
very pale golden, cloudy, large head; too pale and almost colorless, actually.
skunky smell, nothing appealing here.
not much of a taste... just a bitter and skunky aftertaste.. very boring.
very very very very very very very thin in the mouthfeel
Not gonna bother drinking this one again.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This lager poured a light yellow colour with a rocky white head. Sulfur and a skunk's ass were preasant in the aroma. Some grain notes. The initial taste of this lager had cinnamon flavours. It was nicely carbonated. It had a pretty clean finish with more cinnamon flavours. Palate was watery/dry and just dropped off. Not the worst thing I've had. At least it didn't taste like it initially smelt.

Plain and simple lager, Doughy with some sweetness. Unimpressive but not disgusting as some would have you believe.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
malty, bread-like aroma. Fluffy white head. Moderate hop flavour is pretty nice. Easy to drink, but fairly bland.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2004 Pale straw color, pure white fizzy head that diminishes quickly. Slightly grainy, mild floral hop aroma. Flavor leans twoards a sweeter malt taste. Could use a bit more hop bite. Not bad, very drinkable and refreshing. Would probably be a good session beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first Rusian beer. Fluffy head that dissipates fairly soon. Very pale golden colour. Soft, grassy hop bouquet. Mild malty flavour with little bitterness. Strongly carbonated. Inoffensive but refreshing, I don't mind it. (500ml bottle)
