2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Sokolowski’s in Cleveland. Light gold color with no head. Pretty weak aroma and flavor. Light hoppy flavor with faint bretty notes. It might have been an old bottle as I tasted a bit of oxidation, otherwise it wasn’t the best pislner I’ve tasted.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Aroma: Weak, there’s some maltiness here--cereal or bread--and some doughy yeast odors, but not much.
Appearance: Clear gold with thick white head that reduced quickly, but didn’t disappear entirely.
Taste: Balanced, though a tad heavy on the sweetness.
Palate: Medium body, slick and oily on the tongue, with a lively carbonation, but a bitter finish. Not pleasant at all.
Overall: For a 25 oz. bottle, I paid less than a dollar, which makes this beer one of the cheapest in the store. However, as with many things in life, I literally got what I paid for. My experience is certainly tainted by the fact that this is cheaper than the average forty ounce of malt liquor, but probably on par in terms of quality and taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a nice large-ish white head. The nose is toasty with a nice light malt note and some biscuity qualities, not too husky and a touch of clean hops. The flavor is clean and light with a brisk clean finish, more toast and light umami and hops in the mouthfeel. Light, maybe a little underhopped, but it’s very approachable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Bright gold body with a huge white fluffy head. The nose is very grainy with some green beans and also potatoes. The taste is doughy and with a sticky mouthfeel that makes it seem like nearly eating some light bread along with hints of bologna. There is also some old carpet and peanuts in the finish. Lightly carbonated, this one is easy to drink, but not the best tasting.

Pours clear gold into a stein. Bright white head quickly recedes to skim surface. Skunk and sour hay aromas. Sweet skunk upfront with a lasting bitter metallic finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light gold with a fast disappearing head. Nice skunk to the smell. Lots of carbonation. Starts off sweet and ends with a touch of skunk. This was way better than I expected it to be. Not too bad.

Pale golden colour with a thin white head. The nose is fairly fresh with a bit of light sweet pale malt. A touch of light noble hoppiness along with a bit of sweetness. It’s a simple, but reasonably tasty brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cool dude on front of label. Probably not as cold as it shou;d be. poured from a bomber size bottle. Pale lager look with a decent white head. Rolling carbonation is apparent within. Initial taste is pilsner bite, a bit sharp at times. Smell is a tad metallic. Pointed bitye builds thru the session. Finish is like many pilsners; quite sharp and lingering. Probably should not be in the pale lager style.
