2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 500ml, 5%. Large off-white head, looks to be well carbonated. Head lasts for awhile. Citrus in the nose. Starts off malty with a longer hoppy finish.

Bottle. White head, yellow body, Malty bitter sweet flavor, not much carbon dioxide (which I like).

Bright honey gold color, with a big frothy white head, zesty citusy note, pale malt, hay aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasty pale malt, smooth grassy accent, with a touch of fruitiness, leading towards a hop bitterness finish.

Amazed at the decent rates that this has. It’s just another nothing pils for me. Ok it is slightly better than most but not at all worth the 3.03 that is currently has. It is all a matter of taste though huh?

huge sour corn mash aroma as soon as the bottle is cracked open. Flavour isn’t much better, classic corn malty goodness of a international pilsner. Its bright and fresh, thirst quenching, but not dynamic.

Keg on the Exeter crawl - The beer of the night woohoo. Joy o joy. Actually this wasn’t that great. Some decent maltiness and hints at hop character, but sweet and thin and all in a fairly poor pilsener.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 this beer is a little on the sour side, finishes dry but not as crisp as it could. Not a very good pilsner compared to some others out there.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Green bottle, skunky aroma. After the skunk passes by, the flavor is pretty good. Good malt backbone, and plenty of hop counterbalance blended smoothly to a highly drinkable beer approaching Budvar or Urquell. No sharp edges except the foul aroma. Good medium body. This could be a fairly decent beer if you could get it without the skunk. (2.8) ..... 11/02/2005... second try.. Ok, got one thats not skunked this time. Aroma is much more pleasant, malty, almost marzen - like. This is very drinkable. Flavor is smooth malty goodness with some respectable hop crispness. Not bad. (3.0)

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass forms a good head. Nice golden color. Crisp, earthy nose. The first sip hits me with hops (saaz?) and hops. Then finishes sweet with another hop rush and then sweet again. Bold bready, hoppy aftertaste. At $4.99 a six pack it’s...well...it’s a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sharp punget aroma. Pale gold with an adequate head. Well balanced with a nice malt body and assertive hoppiness. Definitely more hoppy than most of the euro lagers and even other pilseners I have had. Good brew.
