1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 Smells and looks typical of a decent Pilsner. However the taste is where it differs. I just have no comparison. Its not good though.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big foamy head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is skunky, chemicals with some light hints at bad hops. Initial flavor is actually pretty malty with some salt.sour notes and a trace of bitterness. The malt flavors dominate the finish. Despite the aroma, it’s not entirely terrible. I wouldn’t buy it again, but I’m not gagging.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I’ll say this is what I’m drinking because the picture to the left is the most similar to my 11.2oz bottle. Can’t really ever trust a beer in a green bottle. Skunky aroma from the start, w/ corny malt notes. Watery w/ a very light peppery taste, little bit of a yeasty mouthfeel. I hope this was an old bottle. DON’T INVEST IF DUSTY.

Bottled: Quite unremarkable, light hoppy aroma. Flavor is light hoppy, notes of hay and flowers. Touch of acid. Astringent finish, light bitter. Not complex but drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one gets an extra half point or so for timing. Enjoyed after moving a heavy leather couch and breaking a glass slider in the process. Sweet for a "pils," probably from adjucts. Slightly acidic, lactic mash? Certainly better than macro brews here in the states. I could drink this all day on a hot one.

Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton. Gold, moderate fluffy white head and gentle condition. Low fruity malt aromas, quite thin and hop sharp in the mouth with a gentle fruitiness from the malt and a slight chalkiness. Short chalky dry finish with a touch of fruit.
