Thin light beer from Germany. Most of these do not survive the trip across the ocean. If you get to The Fatherland someday, you will find that these beers are light and crisp and refreshing. Here, they are skunky and sour. It is the green bottles and I think the preservatives. Maybe.

Hop aroma. Golden with greenish hue. Malty honeyish taste, well balanced with hops.

Opened it up and it started pouring/foaming out everywhere. It had been in the refrigerator for days. Got it into a glass and it looked okay. Still maintained a head throughout after all the initial problems. Kind of tasteless though. Not a bad lager at all, just don’t need to pay too much for this kind of beer here in the southwest.

A solid, genuine German beer, meaning real ingredients. Pretty standard and straightforward for the style, so nothing unusual to report on. In all fairness, I don’t know if I could tell this apart from Warsteiner, so I’m rating it just the same as I rated that. I had it on draft because I don’t trust the green bottles.

for someone who does not like lagers I though this was quite good. nice and crisp with some flavor.
An ideal hot day’s drink

Probably my favorite lager. Well-balanced hoppy w/ a slight sweetness. This is how a lager should taste. Not a beer for the dark beer lovers, but good for anyone who likes a lighter brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the better lagers out there. Big head, almost clear golden color. Slight skunkiness that they did a good job keeping a lid on. Clean and refreshing though not remarkable.

Definately the worst European beer I have ever had the misfortune of tasting. This beer is poor. Don’t even bother trying this. It is very watered down, skunky, and tasteless. Reminded me of 3 month old watered down pabst blue ribbon. Yuck!
