Once upon a time, this was all you could get of German pils in Scandinavia, and in those days this was really an experiencw. But now I´m not that amused by this "standardpils" there are many better in Germany.

The coloring is not what I look for in a beer. It had a little bit of a bite that could make your stomach turn after a night of heavy pounding. All in all, I still will buy it in its 22oz bottle.

This is not a good German beer at all. Skunky, socks, ass? Not nice. Sorry about the donkey reference. Likesd it when I was nineteen.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear yellow with moderate carbonation. Funky hop aroma plus malt and corn smell. Flavor is stale (like cardboard) and skunky. Cloying to boot. Palate like a diet soda. Offensive and considerably worse than expected based on previous experiences with this beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Definitely better on tap than in the bottles (which have a tendency to be skunky). Not a bad pilsner (on tap) with good hops and minimal malt. A notch above Heineken.

(On tap) This beer is a bit of a two-face. I must admit I have enjoyed it in the past when faced with the alternative of Tooheys. Drinking it today it had a very nice, typical German Pils aroma - tight malt with spicy hop. Very pale colour with very little head retention. Tasted thin, fizzy and even slightly cidery with a solid bitter finish. Average.

First off, the aroma is completely revolting. Other than that it's not too bad of a beer, especially for a macrobrew. The flavor is alright. It seems like lots of people have gotten skunked bottles, that's a big problem for this brew... luckily mine was fresh. Anyway, it's not great, but it's certainly better than heineken.
