2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can from Dunmore Liquor, served in a shaker pint. The can erupted upon opening, losing a good amount of beer to my pants and the floor, and raising a strong vegetal scent. Pours a bright golden hue with a few streams of large-bubbled carbonation and a crackling, milky head that vanishes quickly, leaving a few tiny scraps of lace. Aroma is of wet grain, vegetal and corn, light honey sweetness, and earthy noble hops. Flavor is dry, with (just) tolerable tomatoey vegetal, wet hay and grass, and some doughy maltiness, ending with a soft bitterness and a black pepper note. Watery, and with a clean finish. It’s drinkable, but there are more palatable and satisfying German lagers to pick from.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 500ml can. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a half finger of white head. Aroma has notes of grain, classic German spicy/earthy hops, and faint, sweet caramel. Taste is balanced with notes of bread, sweet caramel, mild hops, and a touch of bitterness at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall pretty standard but done ok. Classic flavours for a German lager.

2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager
AROMA: Lightly sweet malt, but no hop presence. No flaws, either. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Crystal clear gold hue. Bubbly at first, but becomes calm. Large white foam mostly dissipates. Trace lacing. 3/3
FLAVOR: Low grainy malt flavor. Clean fermentation. Lightly sweet. Palette is mild but not boring. Hops have faded. Hint of oxidation. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body. Consistently crisp and clean finish. Refreshing. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Nothing to dislike, but nothing to truly savor. Easy drinkability from the 500ml can and cheap cost make it appealing. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 32/50

Pour from a 1 pint can. Clear golden brew with nice compact white head. Pleasant aroma dominated by sweet malty notes. Taste is sweet light malt up front with a modest hops towards the finish. Overall sweet from start to finish but a clean light caramel sweetness that is enjoyable. Nice lager.

330ml bottle. Poured into a Pilsner glass. Nice lager. Not the biggest fan of lager, so a 3+ is a high rating. Simple crisp flavour which is not complex but quite nice. Moderate sweetness (I had tried a sweeter lager just prior) and a light hop flavour. Small white head typical of the style and for me there was no lacing. Overall a decent drop and for Oz this was really well priced. Would have again.

Not a bad lager at all! Doesn’t have the big alcohol grain flavour which is nice. Mild corn and wheat flavours. Easy to drink.

330ml bottle into glass. Slightly smoky nose. Rapidly dissipating head leaving a scummy white film on light golden beer. Watery with cardboard notes. Tinny/vegetal finish. Quite unpleasant.
