3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 500 mil bottle this was a very clear light gold., big fat foamy white head and lots of lacing. Pretty strong nose of German hops and light malts. Mouthfeel very rich and smooth. Flavor is caramel malts with quite a bit of sweetness. Goes down real easy and there is dry and bitter finish. I liked this a lot more it seems than most raters it seems.

Bottle. Your typical bready, hay like, refreshing lager. Budweiser-esque...not my cup of tee. I can’t quite see how to enjoy these pale lagers...

Remember drinking this one while sitting on a bench on a hillside in southern Germany..Not too far from The Eagle’s Nest. Good aroma, decent head, but has the most amazing flavor that is very unique to that region of Germany. Most of this rating is due to the memories it produces every time I drink it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a really pale gold with a big bubbly head. Smells lagery, straw, bread. Thin flavor, has some bready malts, biscuit, but tastes mostly like a pale lager to me. Not really an impressive brew, but it’s crisp and easy drinking. Not really my favorite style.

Clear golden, moderate rocky head, pretty good lacing and retention. Aroma is bread with herbal and grassy hops. Medium bodied, somewhat velvety mouthfeel. Pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy and bitter like a typical German pilsener, with more bite than you would expect in an export Hell. A good-tasting lager that satisfies. Also has one of the artsiest bottlecaps of all the beers out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (many tanks to joss !): Golden, big stable fluffy white head, deep sweet-malty nose with some bitter-aromatic edges in the wings, almost with a honeyish tinge; solid sweet-malty flavour with a distinctive bitterness, soft MF; distinctive sweet-bitter finish, aromatic. A fine well balanced, well crafted brew......
