1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Somewhat disappointing. Okay head retention, little in the flavor or color department. No nose. Well, a slight skunky flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
golden pale lager color, fizzy white head. aroma is surprisingly malty with a bit of metallic hop finish. the flavor is watery but has some malt balance. This isn't as good as I'd hoped but it was still drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear, light golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good lacing. The nose is of citrus fruit and white bread. Big, lemony notes in the flavor. Tart and tangy. Well-balanced. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thin, watery, very carbonated, not much flavor overall. Drinkable when it's ice cold, but tastes worse and worse as it warms.

Blond color. Light hop aroma. Light malt and hop; quite strong bitterness. A common lager.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 I can recall that for a brief time in the early 1980's they tried to push this beer onto the American mass market. Apparently they weren't successful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer evacuates the bottle a translucent gold color with the head massive in size, spumous in texture and a brilliant white color, the lace forms a thin skirt to let the sun shine through. Nose is sweet malt, also crisp and fresh to the senses, start is quite sweet, the malt adequate and the top skeletal in feel. Finish is modestly carbonated, the hops apropos to the style, drinkable, but I’m reaching to give it an average rating. Well it is “Good to be kind”!

Sad piss lager. I can taste serious metal here, this is a problem. Color is off, taste is way off. Drinkable, but it's not fun.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
hmmm, it is definately not as bad as some have made out but it is definately uneventful. Golden clear with a thin white head. Good lacing on glass. The nost is faint and sort of skunky but not offensive. Barly and some wheat in the taste. Crisp, clean and somehwat acidic or metalic (from can maybe?) Thin body.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours gold with almost no head and lace. Very light aroma of malt and a tiny bit of hops. Not much there. Sweeter malts fill the flavors out as it fades into slight bitterness at the finish. As noted before, there is a fairly creamy body. Not too shabby, not something I'd normally drink, but could be pretty refreshing on a hot day.
