3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer evacuates the 355ml bottle a clear gold with a generous creamy white head that upon eroding leaves a thin but covering sheet of lace. Nose is all malt, sweet with a citrus like crispness; start is lightly sweet, the malt profile adequate, and the top light in feel. Finish has a pleasing acidity, the hops quietly spicy, the aftertaste dry, a drinkable beer, but nothing to shout about.

Historic rating, bottle bought from a beer superstore outside LA, California. Pours a golden colour with a white head, Aroma of grain and grass with hint of caramel. Average carbontation, light body, wasn’t much to it.

Sweet, fruity with a surpise of clove. Not the worst, not the best, luckily not a skunky bottle.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out a sparkly solid, clear gold with lots of tiny dots of lacing and really good retention. The aroma is quite fragrant a very interesting blend of odd strong citrus of some sort or another, mint ?? and a shit load of bread...honey! Yes. That’s it. The taste is pretty good too with lemon, bread and tasty malts. Goes down smooth, light to medium light bodied, finishes soft with a nice hop aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pastel copper with a small head. Aroma is dull, of root beer and grain. Flavor is actually decent: Decent pils with a nice honey note throughout. This isn’t great beer by any stretch of the imagination, but decent. Would have again for free. Overall, fair-good.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Dead grass color with no visible head. Mediciny, nyquil type aroma maybe with a hint of malt. Slightly tart a little sweet earthy flavor, what part of this planet I dont know. Finish is quick, very lacking in any flavor. Some sweetness. No keeper.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
<b>Can, 500 ml, 8.1 P</b>
<b>Appearance: </b>Pours golden body in colour, texture is definitely not clear, there are sediments floating in the body texture suggesting bad quality, head is poor, initially small, greyish white, weak, foamy to fizzy, quickly diminishing leaving no lacing, bare body after a minute.
<b>Aroma: </b>Aroma of sauerkraut, artificial dull sweetness, really nasty and far from being a Pilsener, something is terribly wrong either with my sample or with a person who decided to give it a Pilsener style label. Like nasty old fermented vinegar.
<b>Flavour: </b>Very nasty beer with very rubbery, nasty bitterness and accidity. Old, tart vinegar, old sauerkraut, yellow bile, black bile, diacetyl, burned wine with sulphur. At least alcohol is not that present. Finish duration is short to medium but just literally nasty.
<b>Palate: </b>Body is light to medium, texture is wattery towards sweetness, carbonation on palate is moderate to low, finish feel is just nasty, stinky and smelly.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a pint glass. Nice gold color with a small but firm white head. No lace as it reduces to a cap. Aroma is musty old grain and pumpkin pie?! Weird. Flavor is just about equivalent to the aroma. I still get that pumpkin pie sweetness, even the aftertaste is spot on pumpkin. It’s a mild influence but it’s unmistakeable. Aside from that there’s a bit of grain and a bit of noble hops. Very thin body and appropriate carbonation. Good drinkability.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 330 ml bottle from World Beers, this poured a very clear light yellow with no head and all and therefore no lacing. Nose of very light malts and a hint of hops. Mouthfeel was actually pretty smooth. Flavor of sweet malts and no finish. Pretty bland stuff.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, label shows 5.5%. Golden yellow, moderate white head, no lace. Very malty cereal aroma, a little skunkish hop scent. More malt than hop on the palate too, with a faintly medicinal note in the finish that may be due to the beer being stale. Not a very bitter finish at all, making this a poor offering as a pilsener.
