On tap at Andrea’s in Providence, RI. Poured golden and somewhat effervescent with a creamy white head. Aroma of light hops and corn. Taste as strong corn notes, light hops, and somewhat remiscent of American lagers but not as skunky.

Golden color with topped by a small white head. Aroma of sweet malt with an odd cardboard/ metallic nose. Flavor is more sweet malt - not well hopped enough for me.

On draught January, 2005 at Redbones. Rather looking forward to a nice Classic German Pils. When I sipped in to my glass of pale-gold liquid, with no head, I was rather astonished and taken aback at the cheap, soapy, metallic and even slightly acidic qualities of this "pilsner". Definitely tastes like adjuncts, though I dont know that they are in there. A pathetic amount of pils malt, no hops, and not even a clean finish, just a soapy, lightly alcoholic ending. A strange vanillin extract flavor pervades the beer as well. It wasn’t completely watered down though, to its credit, some slight body to it. Heavy, fake carbonation. Smell of vanilla, soap, touch of papery, watery hops.

Clear, Gold with white head. Slight hops in a mostly cereal nose. This was better a few nights ago when I was eating Kimchee, after two good Triples, it doesn’t do anything for me tonight. To be fairto this beer, my rating will be from a few days ago.

A nice hoppy lager. I enjoyed how clean it tasted, mine was only brewed 2 weeks ago, so that´s a plus. Nice to drink, I will drink this again when I´m back in Germany

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 Bottled. Yellow greeny urine coloured beer with a corny skunky aroma. The taste is dry and grassy and very lagerish. Too much lager bite and not enough taste for my liking. Score 1.7
Subsequent rating scored 2.9. Average becomes 2.3
