2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Pours literally clear in the glass, its only redeaming feature is the large foamy white head. Tastes closer to water than real beer. The bottle design makes a smooth poor impossible. Overall not a great beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear, nigh-unto-transparent color, a very palish shade of yellow, nearly not a color at all, redeemed by a booming, fluffy creamy white head.
Aroma: soft and shy, but showing significant hops, spare, but spicy.
Taste: rather light on the buds, a fairly flat flavor at first that grows on me over time. Light body, but my ever-renewing appreciation for the crisp, shiny pils character makes up for that. I find it lip-smackingly tasty before too long, then it comes cross as tinny and thin at the end.
Still, a very decent middle-of-the road pils, when that’s what you yearn for.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange and yellow haze settled into my glass. This has the strangest sediment and gelatin type junk floating that I have ever seen. Very unattractive. Has a very small head that forms as the copious amounts of bubbles quickly race to the top. The aroma is sharp mint and some lemons. I think that is the unique saaz hops. Intriguing aroma. The taste is fairly full for the style. It has grass, tobacco and a touch of a mint bite. Maybe I am the only one seeing the bite of mint, but it kees me interested. As it warms, it gets more sour. This started out great, but finishes with a cheap colby cheese flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw gold, big head. Nose light and hoppy. Malts are mildly sweet, some berry fruitiness, a bit overly hoppy at the end for my tastes.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The saaz are very noticable on this one. Solid, refreshing, and slightly boring. A nice session beer for a hot afternoon. 100% better when had in Salzburg.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bright clear/yellow with a touch of head for about 10 seconds. Grassy hops in the nose along with a touch of skunk. Pretty light and crispy, with a touch of malt and a little bit of those grassy hops. Short crisp finish. Quite average, but not offensive.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow. It is my opinion that this beer is pretty ordinary. Not bitter enough and not complex enough. An average beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright yellow pour with little to no head. Good Saaz hoppy aroma. Grainy flavor with a little too much bitterness. Fairly typical European Pilsener.
