3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden topped by a finger or so of fizzy off-white head showing moderate retention and leaving nice lacing. The nose is grainy, doughy and fruity with apples and pears. Some sweetness too. The taste starts with a sweet and fruity malty attack with apples and some white bread. The mild hops come along with a faint grassy element pushing the fresh malts down the palate through a very mellow finish. As far as the style goes, this brew pretty much nails it. Sure it feels aqueous and it’s not complex but in the end, I would have one of these on a hot summer day while the coals heat up for dinner. Cheers!

Can. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has stale corn and grains and seems like it’s going bad. Taste isn’t much better, as it’s a bit cloyingly sweet and almost sticky. Not a good one.

Real doughy nose, with some golden apple on it as well. Bready. Crisp, with a little soapiness present. The sweetness that is characteristic of pilseners from this area is present. Nice clean sessionable. Not one of my favorite styles, but quite enjoyable.

Richmond 21st. Clear yellow, slight head. Aroma was skunky, from a can???, light honey malts, faint floral hops. Flavor matches, sweeter than expected. So-so.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light gold with a small head. Nose is junk white bread. Party beads. Taste is similar. Junky plastic and bread. Nasty. Light body, soft carb. Unpleasant.

God DAMMIT I hate this site. All these retarded hipster fuckwads and their fucking shit-tarded Hipsterish bullshit! WTF EVERY SINGLE BEER WITH FIVE STARS IS A FUCKING RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT?!? wHAT THE FLYING FUCK. try a Fucking LAGER, you FUCKS!!!!!
This beer is EXCELLENT. It was brewed cold (it was "lagered") and is crisp, quaffing, and clean, with almost no off-flavors. The head laces up wonderfully. I seriously hate this retarded fucking website that doesn’t appreciate anything other than trendy-stupid American hipster-BULLSHIT ale. For FUCK sake the Germans and Belgians figured out how to brew a perfect BEER a long time ago, and now all these lamewad San Francisco butt-children with stupid beards and retarded shackets have to go creating some fucktarded rating system that makes a GREAT lager into a "19".
HEY RATE BEER RETARDS, YOU FUCKWADS DON’T KNOW JACK FUCKING SHIT ABOUT BEER, GO FUCK YOURSELVES AND DIE IN A HOLE ALONE, YOU FUCKS!!!

The appearance was great - it really look inviting and "correct" But the odor was not good - I got corn husks and yeast. Then the taste was too mild - a quaffing bear as one reviewer put it. The after is also still corn husks in my mouth - need another beer to rinse with. Will not buy again. BUT I read a lot of reviews and get the impression this beer is "variable" Mine was a 50cl can I got at E-mart in Korea dated "5/12/14" which in Korea reads December 5th but I fear it meant May 12th and this is Sept-26th!!

Elle est dorée et limpide et une mousse sublime la recouvre. Un nez de céréales, herbacé, floral avec des traces de miel. Un goût de mal, d’herbes, de poivre avec des pointes minérales. Une bière ordinaire qui n’a pas vraiment de défauts, à part celui de ne pas avoir de qualités. M.A. 28-05-15 (1189-150814)
