2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Skunky aroma, even in a brown bottle. Yellow, sloppy white head. constant champaigne-like carbonation. Mildly hoppy, sourish, tart through the finish. No "off" flavors (canned corn, metallic). Actually, the tartness was an oddly appealing aspect of the beer.

This was bad, even compared to EKU 28 (which I don't enjoy much). The flavour reminds me of the fake beers I drank before I was 21.

Yeah, it's a German pilsner so it's yellow, clear, and tastes like sugar wheat. Fairly clean and clear. Some mild citrus flavors.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow, very carbonated and bubbly. Lightstruck skunkiness, straw taste, dry grasses. Medium bodied though and not to ruined in the taste (even though nose was skunked).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfumey nose. Light golden colour. White head. Like said before, very typical german pils. I feel like this has a great body, and is a a perfect rendition of the style. Herbal finish. Refreshing and crisp, a nice pilsner indeed. Delicate and sophisticated.

Not very impressed with this one. Grassy aroma, minimal carbonation. Slight bitterness initially, quickly fades. Finish has a skunky element.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Draft, pleasant surprise. Very floral aroma, bit of graininess, typical golden color, decent lacing from head. The taste was of light malts, with a nice blast of hops on the finish, dry at the end. Quite fresh tasting, more pronounced hops than expected. Glad to find this on tap, worth trying. NOTE: bottled version far breadier, hops barely show up here. Draft is a much superior beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is golden lager fare. Aroma is some hops and grass. Flavor is clean with some hop bitterness and a little malt but rather unimpressive. If you are looking for a complex hoppy pilsner keep on looking, if you are looking for something to refresh you on a hot day, then look no further. Basically a pretty good pilsner a step above Heineken/Becks/St.Pauli Girl. Other brewers of Bohemian and German Pilsners should put thier beer in brown bottles like these guys do!
