3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty and yeasty aroma. Pours yellow with a large white head and shows fair lacing. Initially sweet and then bitter. Light, oily and soft on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice clear golden color,small creamy white head that hung around for a decent time,leaving a nice lace.Malty,wheat aroma with hints of citrus and maybe a slight hint of berry in there as well.Wheat and light malt taste with a mild lemon flavor coming on and fairly sweet.The hops do manage to make an appearance but it's mild and fleeting at best.I also can just detect a mild spice after the brew begins to warm a bit.The finish is mild fruity and wheaty and sweet.A highly drinkable brew,and well worth getting if you can find it.

Great billowing head, decent lacing. Heavily carbonated gold color, looks like a cheap lager. smells slightly skunky (old bottle?), sweet, almost like pure sugarcane. Flavor is again sweet, citrusy, and a bit spicy. Reminded me of a weak belgian single.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold pilsener looking beer here. Nich foamy white head. Slight bananan/bubble gum smell. Very light metallic flavor. Some banana, some bubble gum, but not much else. Slight sourness in the back of the throat and on your lips but that is it actually. Mediocre at best.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2003 Has a nice head, and pretty good aroma, but this beer is about as average as you can get. There is absolutely nothing special about it.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden with a huge frothy head. Less than pleasant lightly malty aroma. Smooth and boring, lighlty hoppy, watery mouthfeel, slighy bannana hints.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour clear gold with a large white head. A fruiy citrus aroma. A very nice light, but not watery, mouthfeel. The flavor is yeasty. It is not too sweet. Has a good balance. The overall flavor is subdued without being weak or bland. An exellent summer brew or when something light and refreshing is desired.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big fluffy white head. Clear golden hue. Banana nose. Pleasant mouthfeel, although all flavors are pretty bland. Nothing special, and as Oakes says why bother without the yeast.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden pale, huge white head that mosty lasts, leaves good lacing. Lot's of tiny bubbled carbonation present in the body. Aroma is soft, mostly citric (lemon/lemon peel), some banana. Flavor is sour, citric, light amounts of banana. Thin mouthfeel, very bubbly (maybe even "spritzy"). Definately takes a back seat to the Helles Hefe, IMO.
