1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a thin off white head. There is some DMS in the nose along with dough, cracker, and some floral notes. A bit twangy note on the finish. Spritzy. Lightly bitter and sweet. Kind of bland and watery. Just a bit of toast. Quite boring and not very good. I can’t imagine a scenario where I’d want to get fucked up on this shit. I’d take a good ol’ fashioned American-made Budweiser over this.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear, deep gold with a soapy one finger white head. No lacing at all and very poor head retention.
Aroma has a distinct metallic twang mixed with skunk. I can just get a whiff of noble hops but they are buried under some bad smells.
Thankfully, the flavor is much better than the aroma. The metal is gone replaced by bread grain and grassy hops with a bit of spice thrown in. There is a little bit of tartness that seems out of place, along with a moderate bitterness and clean finish. The finish isn’t super crisp but it isn’t bad.
Overall, this beer is ok but just lacks the refinement of some other German pilsners. While the price is good, I would take a Bitburger over this any day.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, poured clear, yellow and with a vast white head. Yeasty nose, some grain not a whole lot else. Taste consistent with European lagers, lots of yeast and grain flavor. It a somehow decent, crisp and easy to drink beer; but nothing great.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Its very presentation is very inviting. The German purity law assures excellent beers giving another example like this one. A blond beer with all the flavors well developed. Good foam, hop/floral aroma, bitter to the taste but not too ofensive. A big pretzel is its perfect sidekick.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold with a small white head. Standard euro lager nose. Light grains on the tongue with a slightly stronger than average bitterness. Pretty clean finish. Not remarkable in any way.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pours clear golden, frothy head dissipates in 2 minutes, no lacing. Dirty hop aroma, overly bitter but not in a pleasing way. I’ll bet the Germans ship it all over to the US and laugh about the high price they get for this swill. Old Milwaukee might be better.
