3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Green bottle) My example was moderately lightstruck. Attractive straw color with a dissapating creamy head. Aroma is, like Aurelius notes, "graham crackery". Moderate carbonation somewhat covers a thin, watery body. The finish boasts hop bitterness that's subtle yet strong enough to cover the slight astingency of the malt character. Not bad, but not strongly recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As expected - skunky aroma - this is a German Lager in a green bottle after all - but it dissipates and mellows. Decent white pillowy head with little lacing which disapears quickly. Saaz Hops very apparent and strong flavored. This has a bit of a bite to it - overall, not bad - typical Euro Lager.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light, malty, graham crackery aroma. Appearance dings for green bottle, lame label. Medium gold beer with persistant pithy head. Seedish, with biscuity malts -- tastes like a cross between sunflower seeds and shortbread. Loses fizz entirely too quickly, watery, with a medium, bitter finish.
