2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit of a hoppy nose. Bit flat for a pilsener.
Flavour was OK, but nothing spectacular.
Kind of dry, but needed to be dryer.

this is adecent pils. I do not favor pils but it has a nice balance. Tried it twice and was a bit less impressed on the second sitting.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Golden colour with typical Eurolager aromas of continental hops and bready pale malts. Well-made if a little indistinctive.

I’m not sure what all the hype is about: This beer was not very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Draught @ Papago
As I bash lagers and pilsners quite a bit, I must say this beer hit the “B” spot as its like 85 degrees Fahrenheit today. The color on the pour is a crystalline gold with a prosperous white head that is also creamy in texture, with the lace a fine veil to conceal the glass. Nose is prototypical lager fresh and sweet, nicely malted with the start sweet and the top light to moderate in feel. Finish has a pleasant acidity with the hops apropos to the style, quite dry aftertaste and a quite drinkable lager that I’ve not sampled in years, a great session beer for the hot summer days in Arizona that are just around the corner.

I had this on tap recently, and found it very ’nothing’. Not ’bad’ like many American Pilsners, but just not much flavor to speak of. I also made the mistake of having it right after a Leffe Brune on tap. A lot of beers would taste like nothing after a gem like that.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m updating my rating - previously
I had sampled an extraordinarily skunky
bottle and rated it at 1.9. I just tried
it fresh on draught and unskunky. Still,
its not as impressive as I’ve heard. Some
malt character and body, but overall, an
extremely mediocre beer.

Had this on tap, it was absolutely atrocious. No head, no lacing, no flavor, I couldn’t finish this.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 translucide and bright golden colour, big and irregular white head with big bubbles; elusive herbal aroma with notes of paperboard behind; the palate begins slightly oily, moderately sweet; medium-bodied; a hint of late bitterness with a decent malty, corny finish - drinkable
