3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: November 15, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: just returned from watching LVR’s production of All My Sons--legs were broken... APPEARANCE: tawny, straw-golden body--comes across rather faded--with effervescence of various pacing; head is snow white and lacing nicely, like frost on a winter window... AROMA: the punch of Saaz front row and center; bananas and some off-putting wet rag as well...PALATE: soft, light-bodied and swift in its descent; active and bubbly on the tongue, inviting flirtation...TASTE: immediate complex esters arrest the teeth--apple and pear, most notably--while subtle malts work the throat with a woody, pulpish effect; floral, almost perfumy experience, a beer that dances lightly on its feet, yet it finishes with some grainy/rice aftertaste ...OVERALL: as one of the four self-touted "Great Beers of Belgium,," this pilsner has some product potential--over two hundred fifty years of brewing, black and gold foil necktie, a nicely drinkable flow--and delivers with a delicately complex pilsner worthy of a second look...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale golden beer, small to medium white head. Nose has metallic notes with malts and grain. Flavor is malt and a vague graininess, weak hops in the finish. Very neutral and bland. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This states right on the bottle that it is an ale and I am rating it as such.
A unique class of its own since I know of no other brewer that has used
Saaz hops in an ale.I was not expecting much after the pour but this brew is oddly very refreshing for an ale.Head perfectly clings to the glass.Colour of murrifat macrobrews.Brewed since 1747.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Corn aroma and its bad. Taste is a bit sweet but fresh, almost like shandy. Aftertaste is like someone shat in your mouth.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
250ml bottle (Wines of Galilee,Tallinn)
Even from a distance, after pouring, it’s a stinky aroma, or is that my BO? Close up it’s pure corny pisswater. Slightly perfumey taste, gentle malts. Incredibly pale, scarily so. Thin palate. Finish has a fair amount of bitter hops, quite high for a pale lager. Lasts for a while. Aroma was the real disappointment, but it improved.

Draft. Just a regular pilsner. Golden color, white head. Taste of grainy malt and some bitter hops. Decent.

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.
