2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours yellow with a bit of haze. Head was white and left in a hurry. Malty nose with a bit of soap or something of the like, not quite skunky, but along those lines, some pre-burnt popcorn notes. Tastes of biscut and bread, a bit sweet, that finishes with an attempt at hop crispness, but it lingers a bit. Not bad. Not a stand out, but not bad

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Opened with a big hiss. Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a big ass white head that finally settles into a small foam island. Very actice carbonation. As the head slowly settled, it left some nice clumpy lacing behind. Has a soapy, pear aroma. Quite funky. Has a light citrus and malt flavor. Light body. If you can get past the aroma, it’s not to bad. Thanks Jason.

I could have sworn that I rated this. Anyhow, it is pale golden with medium head. Aroma is pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor is pale malty, slighty crisp, with finishing hops and some citrus. Not terrible, but not a repeater.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle Poured a pale golden body with decent size head. Aroma is overly buttered popcorn, ripe melon, cucumber. Flavor is of grainy malt with a bitterness kicking in near the end of the sip. Not all of this was bad but it is in need of some serious recipe change.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Lemon yellow body and loose, sudsy white head. Aroma of melon, tropical fruits, light butter, and nutty pale malt. Diacetyl leads in the flavor, along with some light bell pepper tones and an element of sweet corn and medium bitterness in the finish. I would have pegged this as a Dortmunder. Regardless, this is not a memorable beer experience.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color with a thick and fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing around the top of the glass. The aroma is faintly hoppy with a hint of malt. Light-bodied and crisp with a weak floral hops flavor supported by a surprisingly sweet undertone. Malty flavor stays there through the finish, making this one lean toward the sweet side throughout. The finish is rather short as well. Below average.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a golden murky color with a head that wouldn’t stop. No particular after taste, no particular taste at all. Could easily compare it to one of the big three main beers

Bottle. Wow! One of the biggest, foamiest, long lasting heads that I’ve yet to witness! Not too much aroma other than stale hops & light malt. I drank this beer ice cold. Very mild golden lager with a smooth malt taste. I could drink many of these in one sitting. Aftertaste was slight flowery hops. All in all it was kinda sorta pretty okay.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light beany malt aroma, not very sweet or anything. Has a mild dose of hops, but mainly is gassy buttery beany stale smell. Dull amber-gold clear, with no head or retention. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts dull with some malty character. Nothing overpowering, it’s just ’there’. No great hoppiness and a mild bitter finish. After is unremarkable, with a mild astringent bitterness and gassy tangy residues. Bit of cooked corn in there, too. How this ever got verified as a pilsener, I"ll never know. It is a pale lager at best with a bit of extra bitterness.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 this beer is a poor lager -but as a pilsner, well it’s just plain bad. I fear I might have bought a bad case. Some of the bottles were way over carbonated.
