2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dry with many minerals. High carbonation. Slightly sweet, barely hoppy. Typical lager, although slightly dark in color.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A medium-bodied, full-flavored, amber-colored lager - very bready and toasty - enough hops to bitter, but not to detract from the mildly sweet, buttery flavor - quite nice.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned, 6.0%. Dark golden colour, mediumsized head (white foamy). Sweet alcoholic malty aroma. Flavour has a big hoppy and malty peak, but otherwise it is a bit watery. Not that special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden color with a rich looking bone colored head. This is a stable head that is still two fingers thick and leaving a nice trail of lace on the edges. Light toasted bread, dough and hint of flowers and chalk. These breweries are starting to come around. While not great , they are much improved from the reactor water dregs that came out, not that long ago. Dry nutty flavors mix with some mild alcohol and herbal bitterness. Perhaps I am being a bit generous, but there have been much worse beers out there.

Last time when I drank this one it was utterly horrible and probably woudl’ve got a below 2.0 ranking. Now they changed the package and, most notably, the beer. Not that it’s great but at least it’s drinkable. Honey colour, average head. Still rather harsh in the beginning, very little bitterness. Average but not terrible.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, ABV 6.0% (BB 11/2005)
Honey golden, not much head. Malty, skunky hoppy nose, not very strong. Malty, carbonated, not much hops found. Clean and boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden colored with a fast, white head and a hint of carbonation. Aromas were lightly malted with straw and grasses. Mildly sweet in flavor with a lightly roasted bitterness in the finish. Overall held a weak presence and finished with a metallic feel.

Surprisingly really good! Brown amber body, lager feel to the palate. Tasty, a really good beer altogether, especially when its hot, or for session, or with beer. Vaguely like Pilsner Urquell in character, but different taste entirely.

Wow, I wonder if this beer is going to be "under the radar" soon. Pale golden body. Stemmy pale malt aroma. Light caramel and stemmy hop flavor. Not bad, really.
