3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I can remember when this was being brewed in the USA by Miller, but I’m glad to see it’s back overseas, where it began. Anyway, it poured out a golden yellow color, with a slight haziness to it. Had a decent enough head on it, but didn’t last too long. Slightly bitter taste to it, with a metallic finish to it as well. It did taste of malts, and a slight fresh hay quality to it also. Had bitterness aplenty. Finished kind of thin, however. A better pilsener than most on the market.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Straw yellow, large white head, slowly to disappears.
Fresh aroma, hoppy, weak persistence. Hay aroma on an honey-malty backbone.
Weak honey sweetness followed by a moderate herbal bitterness. Hoppy-herbal aftertaste, nearly balsamic, of bitter herbs, gentian.
Dry palate, oily to watery texture, medium body. It is best on tap.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I had the Japanese brewed version of this, brewed by Asahi brewery. Pale golden and clear, just as one would expect. A medium white head, a touch of lacing. A very mild aroma, some sweetness with faint spicy hop tones. A very mild flavor, not too sweet as some of the "corn flake juice" Japanese macros can be. A step above average Japanese & US macros, but just a small step. I imagine this would be ggod in warmer weather or while eating Bratwurst!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a classic German. Both malty and hoppy. Very clean and a bit boring. A nice refreshig if it is served at the right temperature.

Looks like a pils, smells like a pils, taste like a pils. It must be a pils! Smells and taste both malt and hops. Good bitternes and a touch of sweet in the ending.

Pretty average German pils. Not too much taste to it, if anything, a little bitter though. Pale color, not too much head to it. Smells pretty average, too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light gold color, small head. A light bodied Euro-lager. Some flavor to it, but mostly a typical Euro-lager. Some malts, some hops, some flavor, but not much else. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nothing great, but OK.
