2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells typical of lager. Tastes like a typical lager. Nothing special. Particularly frothy. Stake corn. Lil heavy. Got much worse as it warmed up

Can pour, decent head. Typical euro lager aroma and taste. Not too bad. I didn’t have any trouble finishing it.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Type: 500ml can (16.9 oz.)
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $5.99 for a 6-pack
Purchased: Oct. 2, 2015
Consumed: Oct. 2, 2015
Misc.: Canned on April 9, 2016
Poured a copper, pale, clear color with three fingers of white, frothy head. A good deal of bubble streams shooting straight up from the bottom of the glass. No lacing on the sides of the glass. No retention on the top. (Sight - 3.25)
Smelled honey, corn, butter, grass, cereal, wheat and light sourdough bread. (Smell - 3.50)
Tasted much worse than the nose, mainly getting farm smells. Particularly hay, grass, faint manure, cereal, corn, wheat and maybe a touch of honey. (Taste - 2.75)
Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt, grassy finish. (Feel - 2.75)
As bad as I was expecting it, this was not good, even for the price. Oranjeboom is much better. (Overall - 2.75)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from TJs. Brewed in Germany according to the label. Nose is barley malt and mild, herbal noble-like hops. Flavor is bready and very pure tasting barley malt bill - which is very nice for this price range in the US. Good balance between a tea-like hop flavor and mildly sweet malt. A good seemingly adjunct free lager that might just be a bit excessive on the hop extract - but that is expected for the price. This beats almost every US macro lager right out of the gate. I suspect that this the kind of cheap and readily available barley driven beer that most Americans rave about after visiting the continent after a lifetime of watery corn and rice crap.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light grainy aroma, with hints of sweet malt, not much in the way of hops. Pours a clear light amber with a quickly fading white head. There’s a touch of grassy hops, but not enough to balance out the sweet grainy malt. Light bodied, with just a slightly sweet finish. Not a good example of the pilsener style.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can in Seattle, from Trader Joe’s. Alright European pils, rather tart and crisp compared to cheap American versions. Lagering sour, clean, but macro. Just ok.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
16oz can from Trader Joe’s, about $1.20 for single can, poured into pils glass
Aroma: light grainy, slight cracker, somewhat spicy/noble hops, clean
Appearance: gold, very clear, white head
Taste: light bitter
Palate: medium body, creamy, light bitter finish
Overall: Not a lot going on in this beer. Hops are very subtle, too subtle for style. A slight bitterness in finish, but that’s about it. Body and color is good, but just lacks a bit in the taste. Nothing horrible, but just nothing in the taste to comment on either good or bad, just a lot of things missing.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Some kind of random, mildly offensive lager. Had a tall can of this at a friend’s place last night. Tastes like adjuncts. From trader Joe’s.
