Can. Golden colour with a big white head. Light hoppy aroma and a light sweet dry light bitter taste. Light body and a bitter dry finish.

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.

Tall Boy can. Pale golden with a sudsy white head. Sweet aroma, fairly grassy, kind of corny. Light bodied. Decent at best.

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

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

I don’t like pilsners/lagers at the best of times. This sample was from a can and tasted metallic. Skunky notes overwhelmed the mild hop aroma and made for an unpleasant glass of beer. Half of this went into the compost.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not my cup of beer. Oured pale golden yellow with a giant froth that dissipated to a foamy pond-scum covering. Some faint hops and a fresh floaral tone too. Non-descript flavours with a slightly sweet hop/malt finish Probably an OK european lager, but I won’t be searching it out.

Canned - 500ml. Limpid pale gold body topped with a good frothy head. Average hoppy nose with some herbal hints. Taste is definitely hoppy, and has some bready notes. It ends with a nice and long hoppy finish. This is a good and refreshing lager that tastes something else than carbonated water.

nice bit of clean and somewhat sweet aftertaste. Herbal character and would go with smoked foods in meal. A beer to be had on the colder side.
