2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Straw gold, poor white head and moderate condition. Fresh grainy maltiness in the nose, almost helles like. More sweet malt in the mouth with some trace hop notes although quite muted. Finish is thin and malty with a hint of hop bitterness. Others have noted adjunct notes, but the version I had states it was brewed to the reinheitsgebot which doesn't allow adjuncts in beers destined for the German Market which this is. Still nothing special though.

The beer departs the bottle a crystal clear gold color with a pythonic sized frothy white head, as it dissipates; it leaves a thin sheet of lace to obscure the glass. Nose is lightly sweet, crisp and clean as one expects from a pilsner, start is lightly sweet and the top thin. Finish has a nice hop presence, the acidity benign and the aftertaste quite dry, a fair to average pilsner, and a good beer to cleanse the palate.

Out of a can, this one tasted super metallic. Adjuncts and corn galore with a mild funky aftertaste. Its also pretty watery. Booooo.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Oh yeah, this is a really bad beer. Can, pours light yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is malty and metallic, taste is all chemicals with a dry finish. Watery mouthfeel. Yes, the Germans do produce crap beer too. Well look, I was supposed to serve it from a footed pilsner glass and here I poured it into a trappist glass. That must have made all the difference...

Well the, this certainly falls under the category of fucking terrible. Anyone want a 16 ounce can a corn, well here ya go. Tastes revolves around corn, as does the aroma, and the finish. I still have two left, aren't I lucky.

Stickingly clear corn yellow body with a fluffy white head. Nose is corn with undertones of rice with plenty of corn in the mouth with a delicate corn and chemical flavor. Corn gives way to more corn accentuating the lovely corn backbone. As the brew warms corn becomes prevolent rounding off the world class beer. Thank you 21Iceman40.

Completely if not utterly insanely clear yellow piss in color with a gigantic white clumpy head..smells exactly like creamed corn spread upon a plate of rice..tastes of acidic corn, paper bags, LSD blotter paper with strichnine, homeless people, clean hippies' armpits...it finishes clean but with hints of corn.
