1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another beer I got on my shopping trip to swill heaven. I have seen this many times but never been willing to risk it. Pale yellow beer with a small fizzy white head. Smells faintly skunky, but that passes quickly. Taste is that of a German style lager. Think Becks, but not as good. Still, its not as bad as I was expecting. Its drinkable but not recommended.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Smells like a lager PIlsener, but with some honney features. Not bad, but not a beer that would make you crazy.

This is one of those beers i walk by all the time and maybe i should have just kept walking. Aroma has soem sort of herbal notes to it, doesnt really remind me of hops. Taste is seriously minimal with the herbs having a play in your mouth. Thin asian lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted 27/10/2005. Shared 330ml bottle at Neil Millerís October Cellar-Vate Tasting.
Pale yellow-gold, white head, slightly flat (possibly a little stale). Bland aroma that says nothing but "international lager". German-style flavour - faint honey sweetness and herbal hop notes. Short and lightweight. Unoffensive and obviously well made, like most other beers of this type, but not something Iíd choose to buy if I had other options.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Poured a very light gold with a medium white head. Skunky, sour aroma. The palate is pretty thin but itís not watery. The flavor is sour and bitter with a touch of citrus and very dry on the finish. Not as much malt character as a typical lager. It went OK with my spicy Chinese dinner

I wonder if this style of beer is easy to produce. I ask because it appears all over the world in a variety of guises, from North America, Europe, South Africa, Australasia and South Asia, all tasting very similar to one another. This oneís not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pale look. Not as good as I expected it would have been. Bitter, and a dry finish. Probably would have been better if it had been consumed with food.
