1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light orange gold color. Small to no head. Aroma is kind of nasty, pencil shaving and cardboard. A light to medium bodied dort/helles style lager. Malts are mild and fruity with a touch of corn. Hops are very mild and slightly crisp. Except for the awful aroma, this beer is a typical euro-lager; bland, mild and skunky. The flavor is much better than the nose. Crisp and light, but so are 1000s of other beers of this type. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle in Europe. Perhaps the bottle was old, but beer was quite bitter and unpleasant. Never again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in the USA. Had some skunk in the aroma. Drinking this wasn’t much different from all the euro macro’s. Would maybe pick this up again if i saw it in a can.

Had in austria. I know I didnt like this beer in the USA when I had it and I had better expectations for it in Austria. I was dissapointed. Very bland overall with a harsh astringent aftertaste and overly carbonated. Flavor is also too grainy and cereal like. Not good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pale yellow with a nice sized white head. Grassy grainy hop aroma. Fairly unexciting with a very mild bitterness with a touch of malt. Mainstream Euro lage. Light palate. Drinkably boring.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing too impressive, nice colour and ok head, but has a not-really-nice malty aroma and taste, and nothing much more. It was in the fridge fo 8 hours, so it was cold, but it wasn’t refreshing at all. It’s passable overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich golden colour. Crisp refreshing taste. Not a great complex beer but great for sitting out in the sun.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear bright yellow hue, small, but well-retained head. Sweetly aromatic from afar: a little floral, dry hops, on the pilsener side, with a touch more sweetness. I was a bit put off by an initial resemblance in the aroma to typical American lagers, but that soon passed. Decent, but short finish. Clean and smooth, but woefully short on flavor of any kind. Pretty much lock-in-step with any old lager. Light body, minimal texture, nothing terrible here, but absolutely nothing to remember it by, either.

NSLC Beer Gala. Can. Golden colour with a fizzy white head. Toasted wheat, faint corn aroma, similar flavours, with a light nutty bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly watery mouthfeel.
