2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white bubbles that left a fair lacing and alight yellow gold colored body behind. Nice mild malt hop aroma and a smooth mouthfeel with a lingering mellow flavor that I could not identify, but was nice none-the-less. Its flavor is a bit difficult to describe. There are notes of malt hop and barley in this one. It is nice and refreshing. Nothing bad about it, just nothing great either.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. Although the bottle I got from my fellow homebrew club member's basement was dated "Best by 3/01," it still bore up in pretty good shape. A sudsy head over the usual straw body. I can taste a little of the Dortmunder style here; certainly a little more malty sweetness than an American beer, without being sugary, and a hint of German hops. To paraphrase their own slogan; Nicht so “Gut” as a DAB, “Besser” than a Beck's.

Not too bad. Reminded me in many ways of other light European lagers. Sort of skunky. Poured a beautiful thick white head, aroma was definately malty. Very crisp finish. Good beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow with massive white head, pressure delivery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Sweet malty flavour which seems to be a theme from this Brewery, a little acidic pehaps citric flavour but mostly CO2 gas. Bland and uninteresting.

Golden cristal clear colour. White cumulous head, lasts well. Aroma is very faint. Has a slight lemony twist with a balanced bitter hop scent. Taste is very balanced, with subtle sweetness from malt palate, balancing well with slight bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a clear gold bordering on being pale, with a strong foamy white head thats about two fingers high with some divets and leaves patchy lace. Smell is faintly soft with a acidy tang of lemon-lime-like bittersweet hop. Taste is pretty intesting, its smooth, crisp, and clean with the hop standing out as a unusual lime peel, very bitter tang twing to it thats not strong but its there. Not like a belgian wit or hefe-weisen strength in taste. It remined me of a mild IPA with a bit more thinned out malt and hop. Its not bad, its more of a solid pilsner feel and taste, but as a pale lager its a bit short.

Typical Euro lager. Grassy hop aroma and good balance of this with malt. Still reasonable.
