1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Slightly hazy dull gold. Gentle carbonation but no head. Smells very macro - all fusels and acetaldehyde. No hops. Vague, heavy, doughy malts, accents of corn syrup and some background, indistinct toejammy sort of raunch. The general blandness helps it go down but even with the help it’s a bit labourious to choke back a full bottle.

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.

2.3 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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Golden and still with a thin veil. Malty sugar aroma. Tangily tart and sweet, but exceptionally crisp with a hint of lemon, but primarily a malty cerealy beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a touch of corn. Mouthfeel is light with minimal carbonation. Initial taste is very light malt. The finish is also light and is sour. It is a drinkable beer, but there just isn’t much going on. Light flavors and not much to them.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was malty and delicately hopped while the mouthfeel was tingly smooth and crisp. The flavor was mildly acidic with malt and minor hop notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yes, an american pils. THats not saying alot. Light straw color with a wispy white head. Light malt sweetness with moderate bitterness. A salty finish. Lacks the real bit of a bavarian or bohemian pils.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty decent pilsener, though it pours suprisingly with almost no head. Just a little grainy, but nice. Actually one of Berghoff’s better beers.
