2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Color is light clear yellow, with a fairly big head of frothy foam about three fingers high and settled after a few minutes to uneven white foam. Smells of musty grasses, grain, and malt. Taste is thin and sweet with a corn grain and a thin wheat like presense. Feel is very thin and watered down to a light body with no hold. Not all that bad, but not all that good either. More flat and empty then anything flavorwise.

This strong pilsener pours a clear, bubbly, golden color with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma is hoppy with some floral and grass notes. It has a medium body with lively carboantion and a smooth, crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is only mildly malty with the hops being dominant, though not ver strong. The finish is crisp and lightly hoppy. This is not bad at all, just mild in flavor. Very refreshing and easy to drink with no off flavors.

Metallic, golden lager with some malt notes. Minimal hops but some spice. Too thin.

Light gold and clear. Smooth, dense carbonation. Very sweet malt base. Slightly herbal, flowery and sweet. Hardly any bitterness to speak of.

Golden straw color,medium sized white head with a little staying power.Malty sweet aroma with a nice mild hop presence.Nicely carbonated,with a malty taste that switches to a nice hop taste.The after taste is mildly sweet with a slight hop bite that fades to a smooth finish.This is much better then i thought it would be a little spendy for a mediocre pils at 10 bucks a 6-pack but it was definately a nice change from what i've been having.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 A quite nice, rather blonde lager. A sweet taste with a touch of almond. Quite carbonated, and the taste of alcohol brings the points down a little.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I've had good ones and I've had bad ones. The best was in a Thai resturant in Hawaii. Nice lager taste and hops that can compete with the big boys in Europe. A bit between German and Dutch lagers. The worst were a skunky mess. If you can get this fresh, it is a great lager.

Smelled extremely skunky when I cracked it open. but then smelled just of malt. Color is a very weak golden. Flavor is slim, but had a decent bite to it.

Had this with a Thai meal. Strange palate, somewhat 'papery'. Fair sized head, good lacing. Nice light golden appearance.

The aroma is malty sweet with notes of brewmash. The beer is yellow with a big bubbly head. The flavor is simple but with an OK malt sweetness. The palate is very filling for a pilsener - probably because of the 6% ABV.
