bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2013
(12oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grain, grass, and week old cooked rice. Flavor of grain, grass, and a light hint of citrus.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Chilled bottle, The Turtle’s Head, San Jose, CA, 27/10/13. Orange boiled sweet with Southern Comfort and vomit aroma. Bright thin lidded gold. Hay, orange, bilious lager flavour with a great big smack of bandwagon-jumping. Interesting this is being marketed in the US but not Europe- had naive hopes it might actually taste of hops. It doesn’t. Dull.

BOSSbrewer (1310) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a pale gold with some head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is corn and some malt. Flavor is very bland. Very slight malt. Some vegetables. Slightly bitter but very light on flavor. Not much going. Slightly sweet and medium bodied. Finishes slightly sweet.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
BucannonXC5 (743) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Pilsner glass From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine Price: $8.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: Oct. 25, 2013 Consumed: Oct. 25, 2013 Misc.: Pretty nice looking black bottle Poured a honey golden clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of frothy white head. Tons of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Sporadic spots of foggy lacing along the sides of the glass on the way down. Good retention for a pilsner on the top. Smelled cloves, banana, honey, faint Circus Peanuts, bread, banana bread, caramel, apple, faint pumpkin and kiwi. More like a hefeweizen or something similar than a pilsner, but I did dig it. Tasted not as much like the smell as I’d hoped. Got honey, bread, apple, kiwi, caramel, banana bread and some cloves. Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, refreshing finish. Does not feel like 6.00 percent ABV, maybe more like 4.80. I was pleasantly surprised with Beck’s Sapphire. Not too bad at all and I’ll certainly enjoy the rest of this 6-pack.

emacgee (3871) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours a soft and clean straw blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is soft and bready with some mellow herbal hop notes and lightly vegetal character. Flavor is super round and mellow. Actually very smooth. Almost nonexistent hop bitterness and very bland flavor. Bready/doughy malt and that’s about it. Wish it were more crisp to accompany the smoove.

2.5
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottled from Bargain Market. Fairly crisp grains up front with a touch of an off flavor to it. Mildly hopped with a bit of a sweet undertone. Not bad. A pretty pedestrian brew here.

2.2
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
stevoj (1701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Average (well, less than average) lager. Don’t be fooled by the Beck’s name, it’s Bud. This was also brewed in Germany, and probably better. Weak aroma and taste, dull appearance, another weak North American pale lager.

1.6
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 4/20
mikesaum (592) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours dark gold with a large white head that leaves fast. Aroma is a bit sweet, slightly grainy, simple and non offensive. Taste is pretty much sweet water, mild grain notes, smooth and easy to drink. Not horrible.

1.9
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
kidmartinek (3303) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2013
This beer is an accurate golden color pouring with a big white head that settles to a film before sip 2. Its good from a bottle. Has some good hop bite and a medium body. Pour it in a glass and lose all that. You get corn and some foul graininess... and a thick body for a pale lager. I know its supposedly 6%, feels more like 4.5, but anyway, its too heavy for a pale lager. And why does ABInbev need to compete with itself’s bud light platinum?

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 6/20
jtclockwork (7107) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Pouts clear yellow with white head. Nose and taste of corn, metal and grain. Lighter bodied. Skunk finish.
