4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is sweet, hoppy, floral, and just a bit skunky. The appearance is a clear gold with abundant carbonation, and a nice bubbly head that is very long lasting, and has nice lace. The flavor is smooth and a bit creamy with a nice hoppy aftertaste and just lightly bitter. The beer is smooth, and a pleasure to drink. Overall I really liked this one, very nice beer.

An aweful beer that I really can't drink. Most of the time it is skunky and old. It just has an tart and tangy aftertaste that is venomous.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is the beer that started it all for me. Nice heavy hops, although it is slightly skunky. Very light color, but good head. Love the bottles. I will always be thankful to this beer for starting me on my journey, but since that day, I have tasted many MANY beers with better body and flavour.

Slightly golden appearance, slightly hopped, slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is metallic finishes slightly bitter. Its a lager, decent ones are so few and far between I dont know why I bother.

It's better than your average Macro Swill thats for sure, but still falls short of being a good beer. Nice creamy head, not overly carbonated like most Macros can be. Taste is a little skunky, but thats to be expected from these damm green bottles. It's not the best lager on the market, but it's definatly not the worst.

I am occasionally tricked into buying this, and I'm always disappointed.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Many years ago, this was my beer of choice when out on the town. Now it is just another plain thin Lager in a beer world already overpopulated with this style. Certainly better than American macro swill and given this as a choice, I will always take Grolsch. Can often be skunky. Like Motelpogo said, the best part of this beer is that the bottles are great for your homebrew!

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Good head to it, went down smooth. Light hoppy flavor and not over powering.
