2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

This is the typical yellow skunky beer...but not quite like bud, etc. Smoother since it’s a "pilsner". Besides that, the taste isn’t all that bad. I’d say that it’s drinkable, but barely. Don’t know why anyone would buy this though, with so many alternatives out there for the same price.

Bottle at Easter. Gold pour that flattens out. Cardboard and grainy nose. Tastes of corn grains cardboard. Lemon. Sour in bad way.
