2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color, small suspicious particulates, and fleeting soapy head. Generic aroma of lightly skunky hops, pale malt, rice, and butter. Flavor is cleaner but mostly bland aside from some mild sweetness and noticeable bitterness in the finish. Beats Heineken anyway.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a big white head. Not much aroma - some grassiness. Light malt flavor, light mouthfeel, light grass flavor, light, light, light...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Think of this as an imported Budweiser. Pours light gold, aroma is weedy with light hop. Highly carbonated but evanescent head, taste is light, really light, some hops, some malt, malt tastes riced down. Not much here, better than Bud but not by much.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very pale gold with decent white head. Seems very carbonated. My
god the aroma is putrid. Flavor is not so bad but very bland and weak,
like a typical Eurolager. Definitely not worth repeating. I will say that it
does seem to have a bit of a sweeter flavor than most Eurolagers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Edgy aroma, which goes malty. Pretty nicely balanced sweet and bitter flavor, but just a standard Eurolager. Has a bit of clinginess in the carbo palate, but itís very servicable brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Obvious attempt at a Heineken clone. Dark gold appearance, typical Saaz-induced slightly skunky aroma with a tad bit of wort-like essence to turn it around and mellow it to some degree. Has a crisp flavor at first with the hops shining through and finishes with some malty, dry biscuity notes with just a pinch too much yeast. Good moouthfeel though - just the right amount of carbonation. Not too bad for the price - $5.49 a six pack in Savannah, Ga.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This actually isnít a bad little lager. It pours a clear medium gold thatís a bit fuller in color than I was expecting. The bubbles are large, but the head is nice and lingers for a short time instead of instantly fizzing away. You can actually smell the malt and slightly skunked hops. The flavor is maltier than I was expecting as well. Itís a nice straw pilsner malt with a touch of chalk. Lightly sweet, thereís a touch of hop flavor but low bitterness. The mouthfeel is light and soft and a bit bubbly instead of watery. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very light, clear, and crisp refreshing lager, much better than Heinichin, more aromatic(the good kind of aroma) and more refreshing as well.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I really thought this was really bad. Watery, very watery, maybe it was because I had the Rogue Double IPA earlier in the day, but this was just horrible.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold color with little or no head. Taste was malty with a hint of hops. An average not noteworthy beer.
