3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not my first time tasting, but I might as well go ahead and rate it. This is my standby beer that I know I will be able to find anywhere. Really good lager, and most people are willing to drink it. Great for parties, etc. Pour is a nice amber, with a nice mild hoppiness in the nose. Good head on this beer. Taste is crisp. Slightly hoppy and well balanced with the malt. Very satisfying.

Bottle 355 ml. Golden and clear appearance with a small compact head. Sweet and malty aroma. Taste of caramel and different malt flavours. Nice balanced bitterness. Not too complex. An excellent lager.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a breathtaking ruby red with a cumulonimbus head. Beautiful lacing. Heavy esthery nose, accompanied by pine and baking soda. Off-putting floral palate, with overtones of pecans and forward alcohol. Mouth-filling mouthfeel and disappointing finish.

A beer more than passable, almost pleasant. I’m not a big fan of amber lagers but I can see myself drink one of two of these

when did they change this recipe? it used to be the strongest beer in the SA lineup at 6.5% now its at 4.5%??? what strikes me is the flavors they eek out of the hops in this lager...citrus, noble spiciness, very nice. the body lacks, but for a "common" beer that you can find anywhere, this lager excels. much better than average.

This beer is a beautiful pour, but I think it’s pretty middle of the road as far as flavor and quality. I think it’s a great beer by which to rate other beers. Fairly distinct aroma, great amber color, and a bitterish sparkling taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 From a bottle. Lightly sweet with hints of pine and flowers. The finish is short and bitter. It is an alright lager, but not one I would seek out.

Pours a golden amber and smells sweet, floral and malty. Sweet malts up front, caramel notes and maybe some pine towards the end. Body and carbonation is medium. Not an outstanding beer but I can always count on it as a good option in an average bar.
