2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bit of a disappointment. Light golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Slightly bitter on the finish.

What was once my favorite beer now stings with a bitter aftertaste. Could be the beer...could be my developing taste. Too bad.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Not really one of my favorite choices, I feel it comesn on very, weak. I feel like I am driinking water, with only slighlty more flavor. COuld just be me, i have tried it a few times, on tap, in the bottle, this doesnt do it for me.

Bottle. Excellent carbonation upon cap removal. Great aroma-nice and hoppy. Nice amber-golden color visible even through the green glass. Taste is is pleasantly hoppy, with a good, crisp bite. The medium aftertaste that remains is more than welcome and is fairly tasty. Carbonation remains excellent throughout the whole bottle. A great beer to drink!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my favourites. Sharp, crisp, full flavoured. A saaz hopped beer, with lots of flavour and a pale malty prescence. One can see why this beer is copied so much, especially with a golden amber colour and a great white head.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Somewhat odd aroma, suprised because the head was pretty well lasting. Taste is like a watery hoppy brew with a slight tartness to the hops in the beer. Decent brew for a hot day, but it’s starting to cool down, so forget about this one for 6 months.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Hoppy aroma with floral notes. Luckily, no skunkiness at all. Bready, hoppy taste with some flowery notes, but a harsh bitterness in the finish. If it weren´t for the strange bitterness, this beer would be an excellent Pilsner.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
1Pt. 6.3 fl. oz. Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow. A nice head initially formed then fell quickly to nothing. Aroma, well not much, hints of pale malts, some hot water bottle, and some very very metallic skunkiness. Flavor is mild, very dry, crisp, light malt, and somewhat of a dry bitter finish. Not bad. Mouth feel thin and tended to leave my mouth parched. Drinkability Low. Very very dry.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden body with a thin white head of small bubbles. That damn cheese smell that I can’t get over is still there. But I did get some faint sweet malts too. The cheesiness didnt persist in the taste, thankfully. Bitter, floral taste with a kick of sweet before a bitter finish. I am not sure if this beer should taste and smell like this, but I will for sure have to get it on tap to make sure. Overall, not too bad though.
