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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. A clear medium golden beer with a medium sized and fast disappearing white head. The aroma is lightly malty with a touch of hops and not very powerful. The flavour has a medium sweetness and feels industrial all the way, though is not totally undrinkable. Medium body, lively carbonation, short finish with light to medium bitterness. Not the worst commercial lager, but uninteresting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New bomber at the local shop. Normally I wouldn’t buy any more Euro beers from this place since they all seem to be very old, but this was a new item and it had a date stamp reassuring me that all was well. Although my numbers seem mediocre to low this was a very enjoyable lager. Aroma of plain cereal that is lightly sweetened with some grassy hops in the nose. Crystal clear gold color, the pour produced a fluffy white head that blanketed the glass leaving tons of lacing. Soft and light to the palate, the aftertaste is too sweet. Drinks easy and has a cream ale effect. Grainy and grassy with some mild hop flavors. Apples are evident as well in small doses. Pleasant $3 bomber, simple but it works.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colored with etiolated foam head. Decent, crisp lager grainy malt and German hops in aroma. Crisp flavor with pleasant malt in the background. Light cereal graininess. Dry mildly grain tannic sour finish. Not my style, but not bad for the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a little skunky with light grass and malt. Pours gold with a decent head and lots of bubbes. Flavor is also a little skunky sweet with some grassy hops and a crisp finish. It was nice on the deck after being out in the heat.

Palate – Ok Mouthfeel, Good texture with a skunk dry finish.

Drank on Elizabeth’s birthday--Poured a light hazy golden body with a fluffy white head. Nutty, creamy, cereal nose. Very creamy on the tongue. Favorable subtle smooth finish, but pretty lame overall as for extremeness. Word.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle green, 660 ml
Appearance: Head is rocky white, head size is initially huge but systematically, quite quickly diminishing, head lacing is fair, head is mostly diminishing. Body is golden even amber, not perfectly transparent and clear and sparkling very gentle.
Aroma: Hoppy, a bit skunky (but only hints due to green bottle), chalky, mineral nose but weak, malts in aroma are not much preceptable, plain, strait rather poor, typical boring aroma, nothing extraordinary, a hint of old grease, no alcohol hints.
Flavour: Front is sweet and wattery, like water with sugar, than you can feel again sweetness on palate that becomes stronger and made your tongue dry and sticky, it is a big mistake to add an extra sugar to the beer and call it on etiquete ’Pilsener’. Finish is moderate sweet and short. Nothing interesting, very watered hops and malts.
Palate: Body is light ot medium, texture is wattery, tongue is dry at finish in a nasty way. Carbonation on palate is almost flat, finish is a bit chalky, parched and nothing more of a taste, only negative aspects. The worst beer should follow that particular one should not be worser and the sad story is, that there are some worser one.
