1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
thin yellow color, bubbly, with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty, and . . . well that's about it. Flavor is bland, no real character. Palate is very thin. Blah.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
As commonplace as water in Germany, like Budweiser in the states. And I know many people really like this, but I don't find much to get excited aobut. It has a crisp taste and a clean maltiness behind the faintly spicy hops, but it's almost too mellow.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a beautiful pale gold color which produces a thick white head in my fluted glass. The aroma is of grain and a faint hoppy spiciness. A mellow grain sweetness is in the taste as well as a sharp bitterness in the finish. It has a very light body, and is well carbonated. A very clean beer that is straight forward and to the point. Not a bad pils, perhaps missing that special something, but it is quite serviceable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clear golden beer, tiny white head. Aroma is hoppy (hallertau or tettnang?), and flavour slightly bitter, dry, short finish. Rather thin bodied. Decent. Bottle.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow body with a weak white head. Aroma was, er, well, beer. That's all I can say bout it. The flavor? Again, beer. Seemed like just a generic beer. Refreshing, good with food, but nothing remarkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost yellow in color but still golden enough, faint white head. I'm thinking these are Saaz or similar hops. Smooth in the middle with a dry hop finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown 0.5L plastic bottle. Clear pale golden color with a very small fast fading head. Slight grassy aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a touch of hops and a light dry bitter finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A nice German pils.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dry, plain pilsner. One of those beers for which the character limit can't come soon enough. But it was free at a holiday party I went to today so I was happy to drink a bottle.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale gold with little head or lace. Sharp hop and malt aromas. It hits the tongue bitter, then malt rolls throughout the mouth and finishes with a malty bitterness. Fairly nice mouthfeel and palate for how light the body is. Good pils.
