2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, 4.5%. Golden body, small head. Weak malty aroma with minimal hoppiness. Weak malty taste with very faint sweet hoppiness. No off-tastes but fairly lifeless and boring. I wonder why so many crappy pale lagers insist on being "Pilseners".

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml can (Rimi, Tallinn)
Aroma is ______ (insert words later if some aroma appears). Maybe a hint of something medicinal or menthol. Maybe that was one of our socks. Some ok retronasals, a little estery. However, on swallowing it’s utterly awful. Chemical and astringent. I want to scrape my tongue. Very shitty lager. About what I expect from Van Pur.

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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
660ml. Pale golden body, clear. Frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aromas of hay, toast, bread, grass and honey. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, thin, watery texture and lively carbonation. Nice pils aroma. Too thin in the body. Simple beer, but refreshing.
