2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thin body, moderate head. Aroma is lacking, a bit metallic perhaps. Virtually flavorless, a touch of hops present. Overall a thin beer, a dime a dozen.

clear, light golden, head is thin, white. aroma not that pleasant, has mild hops and smells a little like wet paper. this scores more points in the flavor dept. sweet, somewhat thin, bitter hoppy finish. not too shabby.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fizzy yellow color, not bubbly enough. Not much aroma, a little grainy, a little malty. Dull flavor, weak and thin overall.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottled, 4.9% ABV, BBE 10/2004) Golden lager color, big foamy head. Mild, hoppy aroma. Quite sweet and hopped flavor. If this wasn't German, I'd say it has some corn in it. Short, but very bitter finish. Light-bodied, quite carbonated and crisp palate. Not something you'd insist to try again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Light hop aroma is almost non-existent. Much more hop in the taste. Decent body with a medium amount of bitterness. As it warms, bitterness increases. Much less refreashing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale lager with a dry sweetish aroma, and a dry malty flavour. Overall a plain pilsner.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly above average german pilsener. Rather unusual maly/honey aroma. Fairly bitter, slightly sour? My sample went a bit cardboard, must find a fresher sample.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a really good beer! Nice clear gold color to it with a good head. Has a typical pilsner aroma belying a sweet taste. Goes down very smooth, nice creamy mouthfeel. Quite nice!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A well made German style pilsner. Crisp with a slight hop bite and the roundness of the German Style

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Perhaps its just that it's my first beer du jour, but this was a pleasant surprise. Aroma was a nice granola bar affair -- oats and whole grains and muted whiffs of honey or syrup. Nice label (mine is dark blue with a white castle on a hilltop, not like the one pictured,) good bottle. Tangy initial flavors, followed by an edgy continental hop body, followed by a bitter grainy finish. I liked this brew.
