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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The only thing that told me that this was a pilsener was the label on the bottle. Gold, flat, and headless, this has a very faint malt aroma with a suggestion of hops. The flavor is 95% sweet, grainy malts and a pinch of hops. There’s a sweet, grainy, hopless finsh. So, how is this a pils?

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Really like the shade of blue used on the label, enough to mention it. Macro nose, corn and grain, stale air. Pale, pale yellow pour with a noisy white head. Taste is bland with syrupy sweetness and a little metal, finish with a graininess edged by cantaloupe that makes me wonder about quality control. Corn and a touch of citus. Watery body. Yuck.
Oh, and...not a Pilsner.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light gold with fast moving bubbles in my lager glass. A little wisp of a head at the top. Strong vegetable aroma of carrots and celery. Hints of earthy hops. The taste is thin and metallic. Notes of carrots and even turnips are here. A decent pilsener, but a little thin and watery, even for the style.
