3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours bubbly light gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is bread and noble hop. It has an aroma from the past. I think I had American lager with this aroma some decades ago. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready and lightly herb/grass. It is clean and arguably crisp. Bitter enough to make it quite drinkable.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml bottle bought at Wine Life’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.
Pale golden yellow colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and very small carbonation; Sweet aroma of light malt, with icing sugar, candy powder, faint floral, sweet corn, light bread and faint grass; Close to medium sweet taste of light malt, with corn syrup, very light wet cardboard, light medicine, light bread, light lemon, fairly light earth, bitter hops and very light grass; Mid to light body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is really-thinned malt soaked in corn syrup, close to cloying and hurting my teeth, yuck! Some light medicine and light wet paper made it even more negative. Saaz hops only shows up in fairly light earth, can’t do much with sweet corns. No!... Hoppiness is faint grassy nose, light earth, light lemon and thin grass in taste. Moderate and quite sharp bitterness for teeth-rotting sweet-bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste. Very sweet to mouth.
Comments: This one was thinned by corn adjuncts so much you can call it a macro Pale Lager. Much like the Estrella Damm, this is very sweet, with lowly Saaz hops that can’t do much and some slight but oozing off-tastes. Got to rinse my mouth before my teeth melted. Drain pours!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The successor to their Bock Pils since 2007, with the standard snow white head and pale golden blonde colour; pure maltiness, bit sourish accent, floral Saaz hops in the finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular, as usual in this style. I do prefer it over Bock Pils, though.

Een van de honderden pilsbieren waar weinig tot geen smaak aan is, jammer maar dit drink ik liever niet meer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a crystal clear pale yellow-gold color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, bready, grassy and sweet with a hint of lemon. The flavor was very sweet and tangy artificial grape. Long sweet artificial grape finish. Light body. Not good.

Got this on sale at the local ghetto mart for $2.99 a 6. Wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. I would call it the poor man’s Warsteiner. Hope it stays on sale, because it’s fantastic at that price.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tomada como brabante lager en junio de 2011. lote 06. Sin mucho que decir de esta lager normal y con sabores que podrían refinarse un poco mas. Bastante refrescante y fácil de beber con un cuerpo ligero de 5.2 vol.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow with white head that fades quickly. Sweet aroma of grass, grains, corn, bread, and a little fruity. Taste is pretty sweet with a floral and fruity notes. Some hay and grain flavors. No detectable bitterness. Light bodied with a sharp and crisp mouthfeel. Great for a hot thirsty day. Slightly above average pilsner. Much better than any macro lager.
