2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale straw yellow, moderate white head with poor retention. Sweet, faintly banana aroma. Bland palate, a little too sweet and waaay under-hopped to be called a pilsner.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a medium white head. Yes sir, it doesn’t get any sweeter than this!
Smell: Aroma of light grains marked by a mild, though distinct cooked vegetable scent.
Taste: Light, sweet graininess with an equally light touch of herbaceous hops. More DMS picked up on the quick finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel.
Drinkability: There’s numerous examples of fine pilseners out there. This just isn’t one of them.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a transparent pale golden with a large, frothy, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy noble hops and some grainy pale malt. Body starts pretty thin and watery with just a touch of sweetness and some earthy, mildly skunky noble hop bitterness toward a balance, but drinkable finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Pours clear yellow with a medium head and a light malt aroma. There’s very little hops presence here. The flavor is pretty much the same as most pale lagers. It has the usual mild, grainy malt flavor, though it’s fortunately not as watery as some similar brews. Clean and easy drinking, it compares favorably to the Buds of the worlds, but unfavorably to most craft beers.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 This is not a hard core craft beer. It also doen’t cost as much either. It’s a pilsner like Miller lite but way better. I tasted this next to a Polish pilsner and it tasted identical except for a little more carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost couldn’t find this one - they call it a "classic" Pale golden with decent head and lacing. Aroma has some spicey hop. Taste is more sweet and light, body is too watery to be fizzy. I keep thinking that they must use "soft" water for their brews, they lack bite.

very sweet, lots of caramelic elements, yet watery in a good way, not bad for the price, for some reason i am reminded of yuengling here

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2006 I have always felt that for the money this is one of the best beers around. Remember, I said, “For the money” It’s a smooth drinkable pilsner. If you’re on a budget you are infinitely better off buying this beer then a Miller or Budwiser

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light gold body, thin white head.
Aroma is sweet ricey malts with some added sweet sugar soaked hops. Like a pilsner aroma, but sweet.
Flavor is sweet too. Sweet water with some light lemony mint flavor. Okay, but too sweet and boring.
