3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-yellow in colour, fizzy white coloured head, quickly dissipating, no lacing. The aroma is grainy, some pale malts, herbal and grassy hops. The flavour is crisp, lots of grains, cereal and bread, herbal and lightly floral, moderate sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes lingering, moderately bitter and dry. This is actually not that bad, one of the better imports at the LCBO.
500ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario for $2.25.
Purchased on June 19, 2007 and opened on July 1, 2007.
Best before February 27, 2008.

Grainy corny flavor with a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Kinda drinkable, but not good. Not fresh enough (this bottle is a year old) so the new score is not calculated. 3/3/4/3/7=2

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Can from the Shell gas station near Frankfurt-Hahn airport, Germany. Clear golden with white head. Weak malts, some herbal hops. A bit watery, good bitterness. A mediocre German pilsener. Rating 5/3/6/2/9.
Draught (8th June 2008) at the pub K65 in Berlin. Oviously much better draught, I gave it 7/3/8/3/14. Perhaps also due to having it at a pub in Berlin on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Microfestivus ’07... A greatly retentive ocean-foam head caps a dull yellow pour. There is a very faint citrus and earthen hop nose. The flavor is indicative of the style, a dry upfront palate... implied yeast. A slightly grassy bitter back isn’t necessarily intrusive, although it does grow... There is an oddly thin creamy mouthfeel, certainly not indicative of the crisp expectation. It feels just this side of watery... Overall, it’s left a bit underachieving.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden pour. The small fizzy white head rapidly vanishes. Aroma seems initially skunky but expands to reveal buttery, biscuity malts, grass, and floral hops. Taste is bitter hops, grass, biscuity malts and soft honey. Body is light and bitter. Mild carbonation. Ends with more hops, flowery notes, grass, biscuit, buttery malts and soft honey.
