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)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flowery and fruity, soft pils. Refreshing and slightly different. A little hops, but not enough. IMHO the bottled version is better than the draft one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Fresh hop aroma. Golden colour, big stable white head. Flavour is OK malty, with a low to medium bitterness. Nice enough pils, but no explosion of flavour.

Yuck! Dry, watery, papery. There’s nothing here and what little there isn’t worth finishing. This is on tap in the ’best’ German restaurant in NYC? For the record I wasn’t impressed with their food either.
