2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colored, little vanishing white head. Buttery, fruity and mildly hopped aroma, some Slovakia-reminding tones in butter. Crispy carbonated. Flavor is also buttery with some wet cardboard and citrus. Sweet tones in aftertaste with lemon and mild bittery hops. Good German lager with some butter.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unique pull-top bottle cap with dice printed on the underside. (I rolled a nine.) Pale straw color with a lacy head. Very light spiciness in the nose - almost a dusty smell. Light watery body. Initial sweetness with an interesting nutty quality. Crisp, lightly hoppy finish. An interesting entry in one of my least favorite styles of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Pivnizub, with my thanks! Golden color, some flowery hops and a touch of malt in the aroma. Medium bodied, slightly malty, but especially hoppy flavor. Fresh, even with a touch of citrus. Well above average.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a foamy white medium head. Corny malt aroma. Light sweet malty flavour, thin but somewhat crispy mouthfeel. Initially malty, slightly bitter and short finish. Bland & boring.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden coloured, mid-sized fluffy head; mainly cardboard in the nose, some citrus-notes from far behind; slight malty taste with a tinge of bitterness; light bodied to watery, metallic notes in the nearly non-existing aftertaste. Unpleasant and boring !

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden colour. Nice, big, lacey head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly malty, hoppy with a long hopbitter finish. Drinkable, but nothing special.
