2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not necessary "the best of what Germans do best" as their slogan implies. But still, not a bad lager.

I tried the "Bomber" variant of this beer. I got bombed. This beer has a light flavor that made it go down fast, hence the drunken stupor. There was a slight fruitiness to it. Worth trying again but nothing remarkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sharp bitter hop aroma that transfers to the palate. Not bad to look at in the glass, but the brand has been done to death.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Oh my gosh I can't believe I drank this beer. Did I say "beer"? This was rot gut! It poured a medium head and had very little lacing to it. It had a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. It had a bitter taste and the aftertaste lingered and lingered. It was pale gold in color. There was no carbonation. It had a light body to it. Obviously, I was anything but impressed by this beer. I am glad I have this rating out of the way!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
1/4 draught: Very small head, clear urine colour. Little to no aroma apart from a hint of woody hops. Tastes rather bland + thin. Slight sweetness, slight bitterness. Too watery for me.

I didn't really like this one. It came off as skunky and very bitter, and almost no finish except for more bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold colour with lots of fluffy white head. Very carbonated, almost looks like champagne. Very perfumy aroma, a bit skunky, too. The first few sips coated my mouth with a lingering very bitter and perfumy taste. Sweetened as it warmed to a very mild malty taste with a slight bitter finish.

Middle of the road pilsner. Good on hot summer days. I have other beers as my favorite though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is what I drink with my dad. I don't know why he likes it so much. It has a pungent odor to it and a bland watery body with a bit of a bitter finish. Bad but not horrible.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a pretty decent beer. It's harsh when you first taste it, but it has a nice aftertaste. Takes some getting used to.
