2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
nothing too special about this beer. ultra-clear straw color, with a faint malty, grapelike aroma. light in the mouthfeel and a little sweetness in the finish. it would be a really good beer if it weren't so thin.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A boring beer with an almost cloying, sticky sweetness lurking. Too much head on it regardless of temperature. Like, half the glass. It doesn't make me want to have another. I have to wonder how much this beer may have suffered on the boat from Germany, since some of the negatives here may be attributable to staleness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A rather simple German pilsener. Very clean tasting, no flaws. Light malt flavors with a grassy/citric hop bitterness. Crisp and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A readily available, although somewhat average, German Pilsner. I prefer a little more body, but this is a refreshing light beer that undoubtably will have a following somewhere. Not bad, but there are better beers from Germany.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another in a gift six pack assortment. Pale amber color with nice white head. Flowery aroma and a bitter taste. Not such a good beer but wasn't awful.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow pour with a head that left fast. Nondescript aroma. Weak taste... some malt notes but not much else going on here. Not impressed at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This Pilsner does not have much to praise. It's a very thin, pale looking beer. Livened up with more flavor/hops this could be quite good, but it's a mediocre beer as it stands.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pilsener style that doesent have heaps to write about. Smooth but thin, slides down nice and pure but then dissapears, not much in the way of genuine flavour either. Average.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Pale yellow. Small fast fading white head. Grassy hop aroma. Flavor has a light sweet start with the same strange grassy bitterness that I didn't care for in the DFH 60 Min and pale ales.
