2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
More hops and, therefore, more character than most euro-lagers. Slightly flowery aroma and relatively clean and dry on the finish. Not much in between though. Bland, but a reasonable standby if stranded in a bar that has nothing more interesting, which this was (as we waited foro the Eurostar train to take us to Brussels). Bottle, Bonaparte's, Waterloo Station, London, September 2003.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 54. This brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a straw yello colored uncarbonated body. The aroma was almost non-existant with only a few mmild hop notes present. The mouthfeel was tingly from the hops. It had a thin hop flavor. I still think this is an insult to good German beers!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal-clear and lightly active with a thin hazy head. Powerfully malty flavor but with the uniquely Bavarian hop roundness at the finish. Bit of the import skunk; better in Germany.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is an American Standard beer in Pilsener clothing. Its not a bad beer, but it pales in comparison to Pilsner Urquell. Most of the samples that I've had were skunky (probably the green bottles). Might be the best beer served at your local college hangout.

I guess I haven't rated this yet. A very drinkable and smooth Pilsener with an apple-juice roundedness to it. The hops appear to be Saaz, like Pilsner Urquell's.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2004 Pours a golden brown beer, almost no head. Very little aroma, as it warmed up a fair amount of hops and breadiness were present. Lightly hopped in flavour, though nothing offensive. Wasn't skunky at least. Bottle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer poured with not much head that faded fast. Not much hop aroma and a little less flavor than I would expect from a german pilsner. I would like to see more hop flavor and aroma in this beer. An okay beer that is better than most BMC types of beer. One nice thing was that the case I bought was sealed so that no light could get to the green bottles. At least the beers were not skunky.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This inexpensive and accessible import drinks like a decent beer. I like it better than Heinekin actually. Musty aroma and opaque, headless body. Taste isn't too shabby. Nutty. Smooth. Definite presence of hops. Not much in the way of a palate and a dry, very soapy finish. Nothing special but one you can certainly do worse than this green-bottled import.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a pale golden color with a very small bubbly white head. Skunky lager aroma. Rather bland, slightly skunky, metallic, some hops, and phenols noted as well.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild malt and skunk aroma that pours clear with lots of carbonation and medium head. Not a bad beer just average.
