1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Draft. Absolutely no head. Mega-carbonation overkill. After tasting, was so unimpressed, I tried to chug it and it burned my throat into oblivion. Ouch! Crystal clear gold hue. I challenge anybody to differentiate this from any BudMillerCoors brew in a blind taste test. The epitome of "run-of-the-mill".

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Piss colored, bland, but fairly clean, non-skunked, german hop aroma/taste. By no means any good.

On tap. Fairly average beer, more malt than anything, lacks a bit in hops and distinguishing flavors.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow with very little head. Not much aroma to speak of; this can be said of the taste as well. A light pilsner, I can't say its objectionable, however it certainly isn't remarkable in any way.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 Had it fresh on tap. Very nice, with a pleasant aftertaste, unlike when I had it out of a bottle, a green bottle, and the aftertaste was skunked. A very inconsistent beer, had to re-rate it. Like it alot better when I was 18.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lights skunky aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, fair lace. Thin, little malty, little hoppy, just a light pils. Short finish. The only pilsener my wife likes by the way. Probably because of the lack of flavors.

This is a very dissapointing beer, so much for the reassuringly expensive advertising. It is over-rated and not something I will be rushing out to buy again.

This one's new in my neighborhood & I thought I'd give it a try. Nice fluffy head and deceiving skunky aroma- this beer is somewhat musty with a flat finish. I found this much like any other euro-lager (middle of the road).

I disliked this beer very much. On a day in which I tried four lager/pils beers in a row (not as much by choice as by the lack of other options), this one was the least desirable. Not much in terms of a nose and the flavor was not overly pleasant. I'll pass the next time I see this one...
