2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draught) Straw pale yellow; good white head, lacey. Grainy, crisp nose - some maize? Quite bitter impression, on a grainy underlying taste, ending fruity (blueberry) and grain-sweet. Light, crisp finish. All elements in themselves OK, base quite OK, but the beer is in total unbalance, taste, finish, aftertaste all clashing.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow, not much head. Aroma from vegetables and dough. Flavor from boiled vegetables, some hops but a boring beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light sweet aroma, corny-grainy, with little hops effect. Not much of an aroma at all. Clear light yellow with white, slightly lacing head that dissipates quickly. Light-medium watery body with light carbonation. Starts mildly acidic, with some sweetness. Some grain flavor, little hops. Trace of sweet remains through finish and after, though bitterness comes in to finish, and strengthens through the after. Light alum bitterness remains a while. Not crisp enough to be considered refreshing. Best cold and quick.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Small head on a pale yellow body. Sweet and stuffy aroma. Malty and hoppy flavor, a typical pilsner. Forget it....!!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malty and so is the flavor. A boring lager.

Golden coloured. Quite a boring pilsener without much aroma nor flavour. Quite thin.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Grainy, dusty apple aroma and flavor. Sweetish, I can hardly taste any hops. Bland and sticky. Sad pilsener of dubious quality.
A second sampling in 2010 largely confirms this rating.
