3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better pilsners, behind only Urquell and Konig on my list. Light, fresh, and "grassy". Quite pale and light, with a refreshing crispness. Always fresh (brown bottle)and consistent. A top-notch example of a German pils.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not a good beer. Piss color, and little scent. It is a pretty bland and watery but has a bitter aftertaste that I don't like in my beers. Too hoppy if anything but still a step above macro U.S.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a quickly diminishing head. Strong aroma. Malty. Very drinkable. Some hops, and definitely malt. A nice beer to have when there's nothing new to try. Like TheBeerGod said, a good "anytime" beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a translucent yellow gold. Tall foamy white head. Nose is bready and malty. Very light hint of grass. Very drinkable, if not entirely plain, beer. There's more malt, and some obvious hop character on the tongue. Smooth and refreshing, this is an "anytime" beer to me. It's just not complex, though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
My can said Premium Beer (not Pils). Pours gold with a tiny soapy white head. Nice beads. Mild hop/cereal aroma. Flavours are good but weak. Mostly mild bitter and balanced sweetness. It is pretty dull.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2004 Crystal clear, straw-colored lager with a large, fizzy, white head. Decent retention.
Nice, crisp, malty aroma with a flavor to match. Some very light floral notes and notes of butterscotch. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Very short, nice, lightly sweet finish with just a small hint of corn.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A simple but rather enjoyable beer for me. Very easy to drink. Crisp, clean malt flavors with a low-moderate hoppiness. Not that exciting, but certainly gets the job done.

lightish colour, a little hoppy, quite nice and refreshing. sort of beer that would be great to enjoy with a good barbeque.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle; freshness code that's undecypherable to me appears on back.
Appearance: light golden, no head.
Smell: a bit grassy, but smooth and appealing.
Nice taste... Has a good bitter twang.
A bit thin in the mouth, but really not bad.
I think this would make a great session beer. I actually enjoy it more at room temperature.
