Nothing here, not drinkable. A pilsner like the lager. brewmaster should concentrate on a few core niche players. Surprisingly bitter extreme. No head and mminimal carbonation.

Bottled. Hazy golden with creamy head. Some apple and citric acid in the nose. Sweet and rounded, nice malt character. Some grass. Low bitterness. Seems a bit oxidized.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours very nice thick, puffy head. Gold true to pilsner look, medium carbonation. Strong malty flavour a bit off bitter taste . Not to clean, to stick mouthfeel. Unusual mixture. Bitterness is up front but not that kind off bitterness you are expecting from hoppy lager. Robinson's guys are on right track but still need to work on balancing and finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light golden colour, crystal clear with an average sized white head. Smells of malt, a bit of sweetness and a very small amount of hops. Light-bodied; Strong metallic twang, some fruityness in the taste as well as the small amount of hops and malt. Aftertaste, bittering from the metallic twang and from the malt. Overall, not the worst beer I could imagine, but not a great pils. I sampled this out of a 650 mL bottle given to me by Cartoon_Khaki in Canada....Thanks!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours crisp yellow with a moderate white head. Odd hoppy aroma, and bitterness to it. I am curious if it is the kind of hops they are using, or my sense of smell. Seems like a new one for me. Not unenjoyable, nor is it particularly good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 I don't have much in the nose from the sample that I have there is little there. Nothig in the appearance very lack luster. There was no head and very little carbonation. Light fuity and flowery with a subtle bitter finish. And smooth. I'm finding this beer very inconsistant in flavour. I had this last night and it was sweeter and maltier then I've ever tasted. That is the warning I have about this beer. It's inconsitant with flavour. I've lowered my rating beacause of that. However it does look a bit better then usual.

Malt accented, slight touch of spicy hop, and dark, stewed fruits. Maybe some caramel.
