2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light yellow, looks like many american standard beers. Smells quite strong, like lemons, but still has that very common lager smell like nothing in particular. Taste is mild and bland, with nothing interesting or distinguishable. Near the end, this lager becomes irritating in the mouth, and overly sour.

Reasonable color and alright head start this one...nothing special so far. Aroma is a little hoppy, but not much going on here, either. Flavor is fairly crisp and clean, but lacks depth. An alright beer at best.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Golden colour, good head, not too lasting. Hoppy aroma. Light and fresh flavour, but watery with not so much taste. Quite hoppy aftertaste. Refreshing, but nothing special.

Looks like bud with a bit of a head. Bland slightly hoppy/barley aroma. Has a touch of hops in the flavor, but not much. Finishes slightly bitter. Very smooth and boring, wont be buyin this one again.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2006 Bottled, blind tasting lager tasting with Bitburger and Heineken. Pale yellow, fully diminishing fizzy white head. Sweet honey and grainy, floral, and lightly fruity aroma. Cereal and toasty malts with a floral bitter finish. Light to medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel.

Aroma is skunky (my 330ml bottle was green) ala Moosehead. Good bubbly head but with little lacing. Typical golden colour with bubbles firing at the head. Taste is rather plain and finish rather bitter. A good beer when not tasting but taking it to the next level.

Not bad at all. I thought this might be a pretender to the standard quality of German beers, but this came through leaving a solid impression. The usual slightly bitter finish, good mouthfeel.
Not bad at all

This beer is smooth even with the typical german bitterness. It has a lighter easy going taste that anybody can enjoy

Straw body, white head, malt-accented nose. Much better than the Canadian-brewed version, which had a cloying sweetness to it. Clean tasting, thin, not something I'd buy much.

This is one of those grocery store beers you buy cause it is on sale and you are too lazy to go to the liquor store to buy better beer. The lable is nice. Your standard import that has been Americanized, but still above most US macros.
