Bottled. Don't know why I should have expected anything of a macro sold in a bomber bottle for under $2 at Osco, but there you are. Smells like a Miller Lite. Pale yellow color under a fluffy head that dwindles quickly. Light malt taste leaves a touch of hops at the end. Some adjunct taste? Gassy. What you get in college to "impress" a first date. Eh.

Not bad for a macro. Straw yellow, average head, fastly diminishing. Grassy aroma and a clean and lightly bitter taste. A bit watery, but, actually, you CAN taste some hops in this beer, which is not true for many competitors' brews...

A shiny golden color on this german beer, bit it does not have the best of heads. A quite pleasant beer with a nice touch of bitterness.

Typical pils color with a small head. Some malts in aroma. Tastes a little to watery with some malt and some acidity. Finishes quick with some metallic notes.

Not too shitty. It may knock the untamed nose off its ass a bit but kind of grows on you after a while. Is very similar to St. Pauli Heineken and Grolsch(but of course you all knew that already.)

I like the glass with the 0,5l mark (I bought it actually). As for the beer, it smells hops and cereals. No skunk presence in nose. Pilsner bitterness is not disappointing and separates this beer from most very commercial products. Lack of characteristic though, a little boring.

Not a bad brew,good color ,small head with the taste being in the usual macro range with a pretty good bitterness that gives it that little diffrence to put it slightly above a macro.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 Typical green bottle beer grass smell. Slightly crisp and bitter tasting with a little metallic ting going on. Decent beer but not worth that import price tag.
