2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in Berlin. Pale golden colour, decent head. Moderate flowery hoppy aroma. Average pilsener flavour, tolerable hops, but not really remarkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A typical pale lager in all respects, but missing some of the hop strength and pleasant bitterness found in many good quality german pils. Okay.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Yellow golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma of sweet maltness combined with a light grassy nose. Bitter flavour with maltness and some metallic hoppy finish. Very dull and uninteresting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz botlte pours golden with a fluffy white head that stayed pretty well and laced some. Aroma of pretty much every other german lager I’ve tried. Light grains, a touch of skunk, and light hops. Flavor is grain, some honey, light malts, and a touch of german hops on the finish. Palate is light and rather airy. Likely won’t drink this one again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale yellow, ever so slightly hazy. White foamy head. Sweet and malty. Slightly fruity aromas. Light bodied. Dry, lightly dust finish. Nice mellow thirst quencher.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Straw colour with a smaller white head. Very crisp and Saazy with a lot of floral aroma. Quite dry for a lager. Goes down easy but nothing really special.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty nasty German industrial lager. Has none of the subtlety of a good pils. Very pale gold, busy carbonation, huge loose head that spackled the glass. Uninteresting aroma - cheap ’wet nappy’ malt, urine, rust and sugar. Medium-bodied but mouth-filling. Not overly fizzy, which is its sole redeeming feature. Too sweet initially, before a late metallic hop extract taste provides a dry finish. Lightly hopped sugar-water. Not much better than the local CUB lagers. (500ml can, Liquor on Parade, bb 10/8/06)
