2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I think Im guilty of giving this lager a slightly higher rating than a similar macro lager deserves. Am I biased? Crisp and papery. Golden pour. Sampled but not bought at Gilly’s.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a bright pale gold body with a fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring quickly. The nose is pretty decent for the style, some light bready and crackery malt with a nice light hop undertone. The flavor is better than average as well, light on the malt but very crisp and well lagared finishing very clean with a slight hop bitterness that adds that little snap that makes it interesting. Much cleaner and sharp than most Pale Lagers. Light bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation that enhances the light bitterness. This is pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear gold color with a small white head. The aroma has some sweet corn and malt with some spicy/floral hops. The flavor is bready with medium noble hop flavor and bitterness. A little acidity. Pretty quenching, tasty stuff. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is strongly citric and lemony with light grainy character and citric noble hops, pours clear pale golden with a fizzy and soapy off-white head. Taste is very sweet and malty, thin body only a step above watery, simple pale malt character is very repeatable, again lots of lemony character from the hops and very low bitterness, a touch out of balance there but erring on the side of moreishness. Light grass and a very faint touch of toast/biscuit. Mostly clean with a touch of grain, not very crisp and a touch oilier than anticipated. Have to give it to them, this is a massively "German" beer, I’ve had dozens of summertime lagers like this and the authenticity should not be questioned; I also think there’s a level of enjoyment here that the rating numbers just can’t hold. Brings back memories, and mostly good ones!
