1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This brew had a sour taste to me and was unimpressed by it overall. About the only thing I did like about this beer was the bottle.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thin and nasty. Slightly green aroma of yeast and hops. Overly carbonated with sour hints. Not good at all.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured an medium head with large and small bubbles. Its aroma was slightly "OFF" and was not to my liking. It was a light amber/orange in color with almost no lacing. I initially tasted a bit of carbonation but was put off by the flavor. Not one of my better tastes. It did not have a strong fore or aftertaste though. But, I found the taste somewhat offensive too. I did not like it.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale copper. Foamy head is mostly lasting. Grassy, grainy aroma. Malty sweetness dominates. Light bodied but not at all watery. Some slight sourness. Fizzy somewhat artificial carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My sample was a quick little French throwback in a 250ml bottle. A golden lager, somewhat refreshing, and a little sneaky at 6.0%

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden. Thick head that lasted for awhile. Some sour taste, but I expect that in a lager. Good for this style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I must be on my own on this one! One of my favourite lagers, almost similar in style to the Alsace Dry Reisling wines of the area.
Not much aroma, with a pale golend appearance. Greta taste on the palate, with a slighly bitter tangy hit on the back of the tongue that lasts for ages.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Highly carbonated, straw-colored lager distinguished by its lack of distinction. Dry, lightly hopped, clean. Very little flavor, but no off flavors, at least.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin. It’s got a weird citrus pungency, but otherwise tastes like a very clear macrobrew.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear, straw color, minimal head formation. Sweet grainy aroma. Sweet malty palate, a little sourness, paper-like dryness.
