1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
16.9 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is unbaked bread dough with a light spice, a light banana, and a slight skunkiness. It’s a clear pale straw color with a bit rocky, bumpy white head. This eventually reduced down to a light ring with a couple of wispy spots on the surface. A light lace is left along the glass. The taste is a decent, but underwhelming balance of medium light sweet and bitter. It does have a light, creamy and fuzzy (at the same time?) carbonation with a texture that’s on the creamy side of thin. The medium-light body finishes with a dry, crisp grain and light butter caramel flavor with a touch of resin. The resin sticks around in the light aftertaste with a distinct buttered whole grain toast flavor.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Standard procedure here, with another big German import. Taste of bread,hay and little grass. All very light though thanks to the watery mouth feel. Inoffensive and very forgettable.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Wow this is one of the worst imports I have ever tasted. Germany should be ashamed of this brand! The flavor is skunky and the pour is a flat amber. Horrible skunky aftertaste.

Clear golden color with a thick white head. Sweet malty aroma with honey notes and light hop notes. Sugary and easy finnish. Refreshment for summer heat, nothing else.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
11.2oz bottle, from Party Town. "311/12" printed on the back. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Leaves decent loose bits of lace. Some bite to the taste, moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. Lighter body, lighter abrupt carbonation, more dry finish. Not much to the mouthfeel. Some corn, lagery bready aroma, and a light acidic bite. More bite to this than expected, really drags it down. Not good. Kept lowering this as I went. Could not finish, even while forcing swigs down in between bites of my delicious (and disrespected) sandwich.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by my brother. Pours clear gold with a thick white head. Sweet aroma consisting of malt and honey notes with light hop accents. Sweet malt and a strange kind of candyish sweetness before a slight hop finish.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003
Quite sweet, crisp kind of flavour. Not too much to it really, but very enjoyable none the less. Maltier than your regular Euro lager.
