2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some fruitiness with light grassy hoppiness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppiness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light caramel and light grassy hoppyness. Sweetish pils with caramel - too sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a shaker. Light straw color with small white head. Aroma is sweet corn. Flavor is light and semi-sweet - typical lager. Light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall it’s a light beer without any real flavor, not very exciting...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Gordon Biersch-Columbus. Pours a very pale yellow-gold with big carbonation bubbles and a two-finger white head. Aroma of grassy hops, pale malts, crackers, and straw- not a whole lot to it, but it works. The flavor is a more subdued version of the same, probably overwhelmed by the massive amount of sharp carbonation in this. Not quite as hoppy as I’d like but all right.
