2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first rating. Just what I happen to be drinking instead of writing a paper. Nothing terribly exciting, but very drinkable. One dimensional taste, a little citrus, slightly sweet, but finishes lightly hoppy. Enjoying it a little, but I wonít buy it again.

Bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a deent head and good lacing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale yellow with a thin head. Faint malty aroma. Flavor is suprisingly good, wheaty with nice yeasty overtones. Very watery and absolutely no aftertaste. Overall pretty good pale lager.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 A pretty clean brew, nothing great about it, but was expecting worse, would like it on a hot Cali summer day, but alas, I had it on a rainy day! Pretty average.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the 12 oz green bottle, but under the label of Fischer La Belle. Golden in color with an effervescent white head. Surprisingly unskunked, but thereís just not much to it. If there is an aroma or flavor, itís hiding from me. I suppose that means itís "crisp." Nowhere near as fun to drink as the amber.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 "Fischer La Belle" directed me here. "A rose by any name" probably wouldnít taste this crappy as "Tradition" or "La Belle." It ís a deep yellow color with a large bubbled, fizzy white head that rapidly vanishes. The aroma is fairly skunky, like a warm MGD. The dying head laces the glass as you drink. And drink rapidly. It wonít make you ill, but if the scent is any indication, its drinkability will not withstand heat. I donít plan on waiting around to find out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden in color. Smells a little grainy and malty. Grainy, bitter flavor. Average lager. Not offensive. The label on my bottle reads %4.5 abv. Not sure if this is different or something.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - 650ml. Clear gold body topped with a nice bubbly/frothy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is well-balanced without being perticularly exciting. The hoppy taste has a bit more character but remains unidimensional. Quite drinkable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden; sizeable, white, bubbly head. Aroma light malt and citrus. Flavor very weak: Barely malt, lemon, and alcohol astringent. Watery. Unusual bottle, but otherwise poor.
