average. light wheat color; mildly sweet with a more bitter finish; probably better than American macrobrews, but not much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid rheingotterdammerungersbot (er, however you spell that) German lager. Definitely better than the old American stuff that they tried to pass off as Lowenbrau, but which was cheap and I came to love in college. Bready, bitter, clean. Good whack of Hallertau hops. Not better than Paulaner or Hacker-Pschorr but probably better than Beck's, St. Pauli, Bischoff. Gets dinged in appearance for green bottle and screw-off to here in the US.

smells like german lager with a hint of lemon.. tastes like bread, metal, lemon, and grains with a stale hop bitterness at the very end showing more metallic notes...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blond beer with a small head. Light sweet hop aroma and light bitter hoppy taste. Ok, but nothing special.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
There was absolutely no aroma. Clear with a slight yellow tint. Nice head, which earns it an extra point. Flavor is slightly wheaty piss and water. Easy to drink, but who would want to? Overall Impression: 2 of 20 for the head and lacing and. Overall, a crap beer.

Tried a six pack of this and was very impressed. Seemed like the perfect balance between light and dark. Would definately buy again

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I remember the Miller version of this in the early '80s - we really thought we were being fancy when drinking this! Pours a dark golden color with thin white head - decent lacing. Slight yeasty aroma, not very apparent. Slightly buttery taste with slight hop bitterness with an cloying yeast aftertaste. Othe rthna the yeasty clingy aftertaste, the mouthfeel is decent. Reminds me a bit of some Eastern European lagers. Expected more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This has always had much less of a profile than many other German beers down here. It sems tha it is making a bit of a comeback with its availability climbing. Not having attended Dina's party I cannoty comment like others here but to me it is a good example of a Euro lager. I know this has been one of my common comments but it is valid nevertheless, notwithstanding that there is a slightly greater mouthfeel and malt presence in this beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Probably one of my favorite mass-produced beers. It's Munich-style, and it tastes like a Munich-style should. I haven't had it in the US yet, it might taste different here. I know it did when it was bottled by Miller.
