3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This had great carbonation. Nice mouth feel. Poured nice golden color with pretty long lasting head and lacing. Must have been really fresh judging by other ratings who don't agree with the head or lacing.
Flavor was good but not unusual. I'd get this again.

I really enjoyed this one - some bready malts finished off with a crisp black pepper/dirty hop flavor. It quenched my thirst, and I think that's all it was meant to do.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pyramid's version of a Heineken. Crisp and smooth, a golden color, white head and some malt and a nice taste. Not bad!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, moderate density of tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Dirty metallic flavor kills another Pyramid beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The appearance here is pretty nice...except teh head faded WAY too quickly to get a high rating. However, the medium orange-gold color is pretty nice. The aroma is fairly "earthy" for a pils. The flavor is also earthy, but not as nice as the aroma. Also a fair amount of bitterness for a pils. This is an alright pils, but nothing great.

Very domestic in style. Some lemon sweetness and decent hoppiness in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Hazy yellow with floaties; thin, but lasting, head and nice lace. Chewy soft malts with a citrusy zing. Crisp carbonation. Hoppy bitterness in the finish (flowery). Vegetable undertones (didn't like) with a citrusy-orange note (liked). Malts were strange, sticky and somewhat cloying. Became more and more annoying. But overall not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Loos like a pilsner, maybea little cloudy. A little hop spice at first then a load of buttery aromas, faint butterscotch, sweet malt and some green apple. Semi dry flavor with a buttery hop finish. Light bodied, appropriatly carbed. Average...

Yellow and fizzy. More hops than ussual for a pilsner. Not bad, but not my bag.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light yellow color with a rocky white medium head. Slight bread aroma with some floral hops also. Mostly a bread taste initially with the hop becoming prevalent halfway through the glass so this finishes very dry. Off balance most likely due to this being an old sample.
