2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 From a 12 oz. brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, served in a clear restaurant glass.
Poured a clear pale pilsener golden with a foamy white head that settled into a
Had a clean nose overall, a sweet pilsener maltiness, lightly bready and
floral, subtle spicy hoppiness.
Moderate carbonation overall, crisp, dry and smooth, more light bodied
mouthfeel than medium bodied.
Dry, crisp, but in the end, average bland pilsener tasting, dry sweet,
slightly sugary, pale malts, a soft spicy, floral hop bitterness and a dry bready
finish with light metallic malt flavor lingering in the palate, not bad, but
average drinkability when compared to other pilseners.
Had this for dinner tonight at South American theme restaurant, did go well
with different plates I tried.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 12 oz. bottle from Samís Wines, Downers Grove. Despite my feeling about the Heinie-wannabes of countries without beer traditions, Iíll try íem anyway, just to pop the cap on a new land. Now listing this as a Dortmunder means I could hold this to a higher standard than the usual pale lagerÖ Somewhat hoppy smell at first, but then a bit of corn sugar. Head rises short, then dwindles quickly. Usual pale yellow color. I thinkthereís a bit of Dortmunder character, but perhaps itís just because Iím looking for it there. Taste is relatively clean, a slight touch of pilsner malt. But again, accompanied by corn adjunct. Specific bitterness hard to find. I didnít expect much, and thatís what I got.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is light but I do detect a cereal type of malt and a hint of herbal hops that are not unlike mint. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is light also but itís not offensive. Basically its just malt with a tiny bit of bitterness in the finish. The palate is thin. Even though it didnít knock my socks off, itís better than I was expecting.

This was an interesting light lager. It was different but it was not excellent. I guess it was ok.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From the bottle, yellow and active with an initially big pile of foam that quickly died on me. Thereís a nice lemony aroma, but the flavor is strictly starchy and weak. Unimpressed.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale gold in color with a yeasty steel aroma. like it came out of a can. I am drinking the bottle version by the way. Possesses the typical profile for itís genre yet not reaching the title of "Top in itís class" by any means. The finish is chalky and bitter. I think Iíll have a Coors please.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Strong aroma and taste of what I think is corn. Really fizzy with a mild crispness. Itís a typical "international lager" clone - they all taste pretty much the same and every third world countryís got at least one (or several). I canít say Iím disappointed as I wasnít expecting much.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle--Suprising sweet taste in comparisions to what I though was another pilsner. A slight aroma of mostly corn. The color was a bright yellow with small carbonated head that remained through the drink. Better than I expected, it was perfect with a pork steak mojito.
