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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.
