2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 The aroma isnít "delicate" as advertised, itís a strong, sweet caramel with some hot buttered toast - a bit overbearing, actually. Nice look, a clear bronze with heavy beading and a a frothy white head. The taste is tamer than the nose, crispy toast with with a daub of caramel. The caramel returns too strongly in the finish, causing my teeth to ache.

Ah, I just donít like the thick and sticky sweet take on lagers, these things should be a lot crisper. The aroma was too much caramel, the flavor followed suit. Very light toasting underneat the sweet and malty caramel, but the sticky sweetness was rather disappointing, especially with this one being labelled a godlen heroic lager?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dry malty, buttery, sandalwood aroma. Homebrewy at times and unusual. Hazy light tea color. Diacetyls - butter, caramel. Easy drinking. Some cereal and straw, sweet on the lips. Mouthy.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pours a sllightly hazy light yellow amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is a typical light laget with some sweet corn and other light grains. Flavor is similar but a bit sharp and bitter. LIngering sweet honey and slightly bitter grain bitterness.
Thanks Buckeyeboy again for this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a extremely quickly diminishing head. Corny and malty sweet aroma. It has an astringent taste with honey that wishes I had the Thirsty Dog Siberian Night. Not that good -- but thanks anyway, BuckeyeBoy.

Bottle. Ugh! This was terrible. Not well balanced with a terrible granny smith apple taste to it.
