(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lightly skunky with some sweetness and dry grass. Flavor is bitter and cloying at the beginning with a light sweet note. Middle is dry grass and some stale hops. Finishes bitter and very watery.

Yes there is alittle skunk in the aroma, but some other fine lagers have the same. Typical lager flavor. Yes it would be better on a hot day. Decent price for BOTW. Glad I tried it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brewed in Germany.... Pours a straw yellow color with zero head. Aroma of mild skunk, malts, and a hint of hops. Taste is kind of grassy with some lite bitterness at the finish. The mouthfeel is almost always the same with pale lagers.....boring. Don’t waste your time looking for this one. But i have to say the name on the bottle is cool.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 Pale gold with a modest white head. Some lacings. Has the usual skunked aroma of the green glass bottle. Taste is very solid pale lager from Europe with a pleasant grassy flavor, sweet malts countered by a dry bitter finish. Overall a good session beer. A decent alternative to US macros.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Unfortunately, the bottle is green. Initial aroma is a on of skunky DMS, thanks to the bottle. Light doughy malt aroma is also present along with a little herbal hoppiness. Not terrifically aromatic. Transparent yellow body with small, white head that is quickly dissipating. Light biscuit malty, grainy flavors present to start before this finishes with a bit of herbal, lightly bitter hops. This is pretty flavorless shit, if you ask me. Pretty fucking retarded.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yellow straw color with a modest white head. Noble to skunky hops are heavy in the aroma when poured and fade away revealing buttery malt. Some pale malt in the start, but lead to stale floor malt and heavy grain bread. Very much like many a euro (typically eastern bloc) lager. Too thick and heavy in feel.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Poured pale gold with thick foamy head. Head dissipated fast. Some skunk and a bit of h0p in the aroma. Very little flavour, some malt, some hop mostly blah. They should use real hops and not extract. Flat unimpressive finish. This would be improved by being bottled in brown bottles, but still wouldn’t be impressive.
A very forgettable beer. Germany can do much better.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from John’s Market in Portland, OR. Smelled lightly skunky upon opening, but that dissipated quickly. Very pale gold color with a vigorous white head. Mild grasy hop aroma. Near medium body with almost creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit too bready/grainy, but the hops almost make up for it. Finish is just slightly too sweet.
