2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can. Thanks to a friend from Switzerland! Very clear, straw-coloured beer with an average white head and some long lasting lacing. Malts and grassy hops in the aroma. Something that brings sweetish white wine to mind. Some herbal notes in the finish. A bit metallic. Flavor is medium bitter with a sweetish maltiness in the finish. Body is light to medium and texture is a bit thin and watery. An average carbonation. Nice looking lager but nothing very special.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned 50cl. It pours a pale yellow beer with a nicely lasting tall white head. Lively carbonation. The nose is oily with hints of chestnuts, wet cardboard, glue, dried fruits and sour apples. The taste is oily, buttery with hints of apples and chestnuts. Low hop presence. Rather herbal. Herbal buttery finish with a hint of fennel.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From my notes 6/8/07 - Pours a two-finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Skunky nose. Good carbonation and light bodied. Flavor is hoppy like a Heineken only fresher, lingering bitter aftertaste. Best by Nov 2007. S.FR.3.85 ($3.13) for a 330ml green bottle from Schlössli Snack near Lucerne, Switzerland.

bottle. Pale yellow, medium head. Hoppy and grassy nose. Otherwise nothing special to notice, malty and hoppy, dry finish.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Lemon colour with minimal head. Slightly skunked aroma and hardly any taste. Expensively imported fizzy yellow Swiss piss. I am a complete idiot for buying this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Purchased in can at COOP in Chur, Switzerland. Poured a clear yellow, with fizzy head. Nice hops. While the nose and flavors were good, overall the beer is too light and watery for my taste. Should appeal to people who like their beer light as my Swiss hosts did.
