1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is not impressive. It reminded me a lot of Heineken, which is also not impressive. It was slightly bitter and very pale. Not my first choice in beer. I will pass next time.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crystal clear, straw-colored lager with a medium-sized, frothy, white head. Diminishes to a small, creamy, well-retained head with great, weeping lacework.
The nose is skunky and metallic. The only thing pleasant about the aroma is a touch of lemon. Flavor is non-descript. Ultra light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Short, dry finish. Not good!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale golden, light malt aroma. Lots of carbonation, crisp finish. Perfect lawnmower beer.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Although this beer comes from the same makers of Franziskaner beer this lager is mediocre at it best. Regular taste. Regular flavor. Regular aroma. Nothing extraordinary in it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Surprisingly uninteresting. Possibly Americanized? Possibly just that lager does not travel well, and I had this one half way around the world from its home. Slightly skunky nose, watery palate, average golden color with head that vanished immediately. Tastes like a light beer with good hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty head on a golden colored beer is all to be expected. Average malt/hop aroma with a balanced flavor of hops and malt. I'm sure this is much better on the other side of the pond where it would be tasted while fresh.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold, good head retention. Mildly malty aroma, not much though.
Flavour was slightly malty but had a tiny bit of sourness which was really inappropriate for mine.
Beaten out by Lowenbrau - hardly a ringing endorsement.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear and golden with a slight head. Clean malty aroma. Malty flavor with that big long malty finish that is typical in German beers.Quaffable, but not as good as Ayinger.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow in color. Small white head. Has a decent maltiness followed by a slight sweetness. a medium hopping is present. Has a dry and almost citrus finish. Had a little more flavor than i was expecting. Not bad for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear straw color with a small tight head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty. Flavors are initially malty and sweet with subtle fruity hints. Finish is crisp and hoppy. Not bad, but not my favorite style.
