Not the worst I’ve experienced, though certainly not the best either. Grassy and grainy aromas. Pale golden with a fizzy foamy head. Lightly bitter. Light bodied with a dry finish.

One of the first beers I have drank! As far as the smell goes it has a slightly skunky, rotten apple smell. Pours a beautiful light green color with an impressive beady head. Tasted a bit watery, almost like a Rolling Rock, but had a stronger rotten apple taste. Has a watery beginning and end. Overall, it’s nothing great, but nothing offensive. I still have fond memories of having one of my first 6 packs ever back in my army days so it scores some nostalgia points with me. A quality cheap beer.

Green 12 oz. bottle, gifted by a friend as a joke because he thinks I’m silly for rating so many beers. Hey I would never buy this so I’m making out on this deal!! Aroma is grain, rice and stale yeast.

I remember drinking this years ago and recall it not being very good. Nothing has changed in that category. Sweet grainy flavor with a light herbal bitter hop finish. Stale, lightly skunky yeast. I will be generous with my scoring since it still is drinkable (in a binge drinking kind of way)

Wombata (567) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2015
Aroma: Light floral and earthy hop, sweet corn, lightly roasted grain, yeast. Palate: Light body. Flavor: Earthy, corn roasted grain, yeast. Finishes very dry with firm bitterness. Comment: Carbonation is well done--very minute, persistant bubbles suggesting a long lagering at low temperatures. This gives it a rounded mouth feel initially before the lager turns dry. I don’t care for the corn aroma or flavor and marked it down based on that.

Apple juice aroma. Taste is water and fizzy lemon with some faint apple in the back of the tongue.

12 oz green glass bottle. Pours a beautiful golden clear color. Thin papery head. No skunk. Malty and hoppy. Very nice. Maybe a touch of biscuit. Flavor is tasty. Grassy hops. A little bitter but not too much. It does have some biscuit on the flavor. Mouthfeel is very clean. Crisp. Has a slick finish. Medium to light body. Overall, this is more of a pilsner than a lager, and it is quite good for either style. If you can get one that?s not skunky, it?s hard to beat.

Faint grain and malt aroma. Light golden in color with a two finger, fast fading white head. Great warm weather, refreshing beer.

foyle (347) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass Appearance: pours a 1+" frothy head that drops slowly. Color is clear pale straw with mild streaming carbonation. Aroma: initially a bit of skunk (green bottle) once that subsided, some mild sweet malt and grassiness. Mouthfeel: light and watery with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: sweet yeast rolls with a mild hop bite that lingers in the finish. Overall: nothing offensive (other than the initial skunk), but not near the best in this style.

purpledotdays (2) - Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2015 does not count
Funny to read repeated "corn" comments. Sure, it is an InBev product, but it does not contain corn, so you have to discount those reviews. Lower alcohol content can be a plus when you have chores. Taste is acceptable and German enough. Not my favorite beer, but readily available and modestly priced.

Classic german beer. A staple that is light with a light taste and distinct german aroma.
