2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange/yellow with average white head formation. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hop aromas and hints of citrus. Lacks some of the spicy characters of other pilseners, but not too bad. Strong sweet malt flavour hides the alchol content quite well, but could maybe do with some stronger bitterness to balance.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy yellow. Flat, uninspired, and lacking in both the malts and hops department. A bit bready and earthy.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really disappointing. I was hoping to get a kick form the 6.2%, but they hid it really well. This was the only aspect that was going to save this beer- a nice kick.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden in color with a medium white head. Aroma is grainy, buttery,bready and sweet like candy. Flavor starts bitter and becomes sweet, spicey hops, with more bread and butter character.A little thin in body.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Light cloudy orange with a light white head, dull earth and flowers in the aroma with some malts, watery mouthfeel, weak ending with a stale aftertaste. Not yummy.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
With my nose deep in the goblet, I smell wet dog. I love the smell of wet dog, but assume that beer should not boast this feature (hence my middling aroma rating). Flavor is a bit of honey and a bit of butter--both good for sandwiches, but not when lemon sneaks in between. Finishes clean, and the bottle is much more interesting than this photo: itís more like the Zhiguly bottle, or Ueringe Sticke--a ball at the bottom and superlongneck chimney.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This headless, pale yellow liquid smells a lot like the candied corn that I used to eat (too) many years ago on Halloween. Thereís a bit of hopping in the flavor, but mainly itís a grainy sweetness. Having a sweet, sticky finish (with a dollop of bitterness), this will not go down as a favorite pilsener of mine.

This was pale colored with a billowing head that stayed around. Somewhat grassy aroma. Very light taste, less hops than I am used to in a Pils but well done. I still prefer a hoppier German Pils.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2010 Pale yellow, foamy and quickly diminishing head, spots of lace. Nose of sourdough and a touch of grassy hops. Slightly sweet but not heavy w/ medium carbonation. I still donít think this is a Pilsener. 2.2
Original Rating from 2005: Well, this says itís a pils and itís a Pilsener here on RB but I really donít think it fits the style--too strong and grainy. Typical golden with diminishing head. Sweet malty nose with some husky grain notes and a waft of alcohol. Somewhat harsh flavor takes a minute of getting used to before you can really quaff the stuff. Decent enough of a strong lager if youíre looking to get wasted. 2.3
