2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mahrs in Bamberg, bottle. Golden with a nice head. The aroma is pretty weak with light notes of malt and hops. The flavour is refreshing with light notes of malt, caramel and hops, that gives a refreshing bitterness - all in all very uncomplicated and quenching.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a cloudy very light straw with a large rocky head that did not persist. Grainy aroma with a bit of nobel hops and no skunkiness. Grainy malt flavor with some grassey/spicey hop notes. Finish is light and dry. First bottle had alot of floaties. Second bottle was better. Not a beer that travels well or should sit on the shelf long. I suspect this beer could be quite tasty fresh.

(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a mid-sized frothy white head. Fresh aroma of slightly herbal and slightly lemony hops with a soft malty sweetness. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a crispy mf. Soft malty base with an aromatic and fresh hops character; dry and bitter, herbal and slightly grassy hoppy finish. Recommendable light beer (01.03.08).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquor, Chicago, IL. Clear straw color with medium white head. Aroma is reminiscent of a homebrew day with the water pulling out those hot cereal aromas. Dry grainy malt flavor with subtle grassy hops. Medium body with good carbonation. I didn’t like this beer at first until I sat and tried to understand it a little bit more.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a 500ml bottle purchased at Edelweiss--Poured a clear pale whitish yellow straw hue with a big white head. Nose of cheap cereal grains. Flavor abundantly sweet and over malted. Grassy and skunky. Pretty terrible. Most of this went down my drain.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml bottle. Clear, pale yellow with a white head. Grainy nose, light dusty hop. Too sweet. Flavor is sweet grain, a bit musty, corny and grassy. Not awful, but close.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I should have my head checked. I paid $4 for a flippin’ light beer. Okay, so it’s a German made light beer. Big whoop. Aroma was weak with minimal amounts of corn and a bit sour. Appearance is a pale (really pale) yellow with a one finger head which dissipated almost immediately into a scummy, big bubbled top. Watery. Bland. Small amount of carbonation. Comparing it to other light beers, and it’s not bad. It should stay that way and if you drink this with that one thought in your mind, you can get thru all 16.9 ounces of it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from State Line. Pale gold pour with fizzy white head and a lot of carbonation streams. Aroma and flavor have grainy pale malt, hops, citrus, in roughly that order of magnitude. Not a beer I’d buy again, but you can do a lot worse in this genre.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Moan and Dove circa Summer 2005. Had to drink this as part of my quest to join the ’Mug Club’ elite. Don’t really ever want to drink this again, and I feel like I have a pretty good memory of this experience even though it was almost 2 years ago. Pours just like the picture to the left, clear golden yellow with a frothy white head that fades after a couple minutes. Good lacing. Nose is grainy and cereal like, with a slight sweetness and a slightly noticeable hop aroma. Flavor is pretty bland with a little sweet malt, more cereal , and water. I ended up chugging the second half of the glass just so I could move on to the next beer. This is not incredibly tasty, but it doesnt really have any flaws and I’ve alwyas had a thing for Mahrs. That being said, I dont think I would ever pay 3 or 4 bucks for a bottle of this--even if I wanted something light.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light aroma - seems to be grassy hop. Not certain about malt. Very pale gold color with a decent white head. Thin bodied. Carbonation a bit sharp. Very light malt, decent amount of grassy hop for balance. It’s quite clean; the finish is dry, and more bitter than could reasonably be expected. Really very good for a low alcohol beer.
