2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl bb03/2015, Edeka. Dank cardboard and soggy grain in the nose announce that this is a mug-sized chugger: taste corroborates this fear by being almost wholly devoid of hop nor specific pale malt character, offering mostly old straw and a sogged bready sweetness with a massive sticky sourdough edge conjuring up sticky Vitamalz. Gulpable and yet less than refreshing.

Smooth, bitter hell. Not earth shattering by any means, but still a solid hell.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very good beer overall. Pours a very bright golden color, very clear. Small white head. Just the right bitterness and hops. Crisp. Awesome.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
the aroma is malty and herbal with hints of grain and hop... the taste is malty, clear and refreshening, with smooth hoppy bitterness... spicy dry aftertaste... classic Bavarian beer...

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Hard to believe they could continue to sell something this bad. The nose is sort of bready and cereal like with a skunky note. Taste is unbalanced to the sweet side with no discernible hops. Not crisp. Very disappointing...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can. Nice lager for high price (low overall point). Rather sweet than hoppy, besides foam is poor, but taste is grainy, malty, very short bitter at the end of all gulp. Almost thin beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Una buona birra. Equilibrata in tutto. Dorato chiaro di colore, schiuma finissima e peristente, non troppo briosa, ben luppolata

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l bottle. Clear golden color with fast disappearing white head. Aroma of bread. Taste is too sweet, like eating cookies with water. It would be good if some bitterness was present.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from a Moscow grocery store. Label is a darker, more pleasant yellow. Beer pours a clear gold with a white head the disappears quickly. Aroma is grainy and a bit bready. Taste follows the aroma, with slight bitterness in the finish. Overall it's a nice enough beer, although I prefer Hoffbrau's effort.
