2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pale golden and slightly hazy. Fresh light malt, fresh bread. Very clean with only a hint of floral hops. Palate is a bit thin and watery, but the beer isn’t bad. I’ll take a Prima Pils over this any day though.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle best by July 2015. Clear gold with no head. Simple aroma of honey-ish malt and yeast that smells like vitamins and cosmetics, and DMS shows as corn and concrete, more so in the mouth than the nose. Light bodied, moderately sweet with low bitterness and low acidity. Syrupy and flabby approach, coarse starchy finish, low carbonation. All around terrible lager, smells foul and looks bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Spicy, herbal hop notes under crisp biscuity pils malt...A dry ending is cajoled by tepid citrus fruit...A beautifully rounded body is lean enough to remain very drinkable, yet can still create satiety...

Bottle back at Paul’s place after the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a hazed yellow with a medium sized white head. Light grain, a little citrus. Crisp and sweet grain. Soft wheat. Quite crisp. Sweet, crisp, and grainy on the finish.

Tap at Pony Bar. Medium gold color with lace. Nice malty, biscuit nose. Light bitterness, nice lemony, floral hops at first, but in the end, rather plain.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, rather pale straw golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up soft sourdough bread and earthy notes with dry, spicy accents of white pepper and dried hibiscus.. very pleasant and well-balanced. The flavor found bready and other pale malts at the core, with just a faint hint of cardboard.. prickly carbonation and dry earthy character surrounded.. lemony sourness over bread on the finish. Lighter-bodied with too much tight, sharp carbonation on the palate.. somewhat stale feeling as it warmed up.. overall a solid drinker.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
7/9/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is basically clear yellow, very light, with a fizzy white head. The aroma is dry pilsner type grain, very German - a hint of spicy hops as well. The aroma is sweeter but with that same grainy taste and a touch of earthy hops - not that obvious. A little citrusy in the finish.
