1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
no real affect on my palate and no real greatness to this one. add it up the category with the other mediocre beers that try to be passed off as somehow "different" yet all seem to have no redeeming taste value. I could have had almost any other cheap american beer and not really have told you any discerning thing as to what I was drinking

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 Poured yellow and fizzy with a thin white head...smell was very faint (perhaps I had an old bottle), but what was there was a little skunky and faint soap...taste was much heavier malted than I’d thought...sour nasty finish...

Yellow with little head...a little lemony aroma...nothing too amazing here...definately crisp and refreshing though...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a sparkling medium golden with thin but persistent white head. Aroma has a slight wort-like quality to it but not over apparent. Slightly dry flavor with hints of butter and yeast. Hints of honey make their way in there as well. Mouthfeel is fairly pleasant. Not a bad Pils.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Medium disappearing white head, clear golden body. Weak aroma, only slightly hoppy. Hoppy and malty flavor with flower notes and a dry end. Pretty good pilsener.

Cool label. A nice, easy drinking beer that balances the hops and malt a little too subtlely, but makes for a nice brew on a hot summer day. Flavors are sour and a bit tangy in the finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden body, aggressive carbonation. Cornflakes and lemony hops in the aroma. Bready, stemmy flavor. Good dose of carbonic acid on the tounge. Meh.

I can not believe that I never got around to rating this one. Every summer, it is my favorite beer- it is all I drink when I visit the saucer- just very refreshing with a ton of character.

Tasty and refreshing pilsner. Dry hoppy flavors stand well.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shiny yellow body with a small fizzy head. Aroma isn’t special... sweaty light hops with grain. Taste is sweet... too sweet. Not horrible, but blah.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kinda yellow and fizzy looking though this does have a nicely retained egg white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with notes of hay and straw. There is a malt base in the background. Flavor is decent. Definite lemon, some light hop bitterness with just a dash of malt biscuit flavor in the background. Pretty tasty on a hot Texas summer day.

Pretty good pils. Light hop aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet and finishes lightly bitter. Appearance is yellow/fizzy. The is no head retention and no lacing. Pretty refreshing for hot Texas days.
