1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pale gold pour with minimal white head. Hopcitrus and faint pale malt were noted in aroma and flavor, with some off metallic flavor notes, and a bit of thiols in the nose. This started off at about a 2 rating, then devolved into a drain pour for the last 4 ounces or so.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Medium golden in color upon pouring. Moderate grainy aroma. A tad sour. Fairly average pils. Some grain and a little bitter. A little lacking in flavor, but still fairly crisp and clean.

Pours a fairly translucent bright yellow. Little head and little carbonation. Weak aroma smells very fruity, kind of like lemon. Tastes more sweet and more bitter than other pilseners I have tried. Palate is smooth with a light body. A little too bitter for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Pours a golden yellow with a big billowy white head that retains well and coats the glass. Aroma is boiled corn and bread dough. The taste is standard German pils - - pale malt sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. As I said, it’s standard, not great but not bad. Quite refreshing.

Bottle. Long lasting head and lacing. Very clean, soapy and sharp taste. Decent hoppiness. Somewhat boring, not much going on here except the bitter aftertaste which seems to last.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2010 500 ml can. a middle of the road german pilsner. drinkable with all the typical flavours in balance. a bit thin and underwhelming.///////////////////re-rate 020810. now that i really dig pilsners i find this beer to be quite good. lean pils malt body and plenty of nobel german hops. tight bitter finish. recommended.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On Tap at Old Chicago : Very clear light yellow pour that has a ok finger white head but leaves nice lacing around the glass. Nose of malts and grain. Taste was mostly sweet malts. Palate was a little watery but was very crisp and had a minor hop bite toward the end.
