pale. main flavor is light malty sweetness. not much complexity. decent body. very little bitterness. seems well balanced. easy to drink and enjoyable if not very robust. it is however grossly overpriced.

Bottle. Straw gold moderate head and low conition. Enticing aromas of sweet malt and low hop aroma. Sweet malt dominated in the mouth and soft sweet and quaffable finish. Good Munich style helles.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (light bread, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Very average at best German pilsener. Hardly any color with a head to match. Still better than a bud!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale yellow - and a pale flavor to match. body is thin and lightly malty. The first sip had a nice hop to it, but that faded quickly and did not return. mediocre.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the palest beers I have ever seen. Not much in the way of aroma. Nor taste for that matter. Refreshing, though. The finish is too short for my liking.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 A light, fizzy and refreshing drinking experience. The Saaz hops are present, but milder than in most pilseners. There's an interesting, yeasty sweetness that's beguiling, yet slightly metallic. It's like sucking on a nickel.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Extremely light golden color. Light malt
taste with butter components. Kind of
cracker-like too. Almost no bitterness.
Watery with a weak body. Just an alternative
to water to wash down food. Overall very mild
brew that approaches the blandness of a
Miller or Bud. I got this in sampler pack
at the Munich airport. It was marketed as
a Bavarian specialty and, after tasting it,
it’s way over priced. A rip off.
