3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle looks really noble. The beer in the glass is also okay. The flavor is modest dry, modest "dusty" finish, very drinkable. Good beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good pale lager aroma, nice and clean, friendly and fine. Continuous rolling rising carbonation in the glass, very noteworthy. Excellent amount of fizz on the palate, likable. Initially this is surprisingly bitter then it mellows out in a way. Becomes more like a good pale lager. Taste after taste it becomes more and more friendly. I want to give it a 4 for taste but the enjoyable factor on this stuff is pretty high so I’ll notch it up to a 5 or 6. Remnants of pilsner bitter bite on the finish, refreshing to the end. A likable beer. Probably an excellent session brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From an 11.2oz bottle--Poured a clear straw golden yellow body with a fluffy thick and quickly diminishing white head. Nose of a standard pils. Bready, crisp, mildly metallic. Some sharp spicy hop presence. A little creamy and refreshing in the mouth feel. Crisp, clean finish. The metallic bit was a little bit of a put off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5L mini-keg at a New Year’s Party. Pours a pale, golden yellow with a white creamy foam head. Pleasant lager aroma of barley malt. Flavor is a perfect balance that I have been missing for a long time. Nice citrus bitterness flows evenly with the grainy malt character. Medium bodied at extemely easy to drink. I had more pints than I was expecting, it is just so smooth and creamy... delicious. Prost!

500ml bottle from Quaffs, Spitalfields Market. Pale gold with thick white head. Light lager aroma, bit of metallic pale malt. Very light in mouth, with a quickly disappearing flavour. Some metallic carbonated sting. Faint lemon. No off flavours, but just a lack of anything.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5L keg at our Septoberfest party. This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of mild hops and grainy malt. Light-bodied with a bready malt and hops flavor. Not a whole lot else going on aside from touches of spice. The finish is clean and earthy with a short-lived malt aftertaste. Average-ish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very minimally hazed straw/gold with a bright white head. Nose is as to be expected for the style. Slightly hopped and earthy. Flavor is fairly robust. Good, but not overly unique. Smooth bitter edge with a slight sweet touch. Feel is standard. Drinkable? Absolutely. This may not be the most inventive of the style, but you could certainly session this one quite easily. More of an everyday beer instead of a special occasion one.
For some reason as I drink this I have the urge to eat a big fat pork chop with this.
