Don’t like it, too bitter for me. Pale color, not much of an aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really pale color and by the time the beer got to me there wasn’t much in the way of a head. Not sure if the beer is naturally small headed, quick dissipating or if they just took too long getting it to me. Very pale and thin color. Flavor isn’t so pale or thin. Strong, peppery hops dominate the flavor with a bitter finish. Something about it reminded me of body odor or a kid I knew in middle school who had funky breath. Didn’t really taste too skunky though.

smooth, but bland. Reminds me of an overpriced Miller product.

A lighter weight beer than I usually drink, not very substantial, but it’s growing on me with every sip. I don’t like the bitter finish, however, so this one will probably be my last.

A decent beer, however, it’s aftertaste lingers too long. Other than that, a clean crisp beer that everyone should try... at least once.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light and refreshing, and a beer one can drink all night. I’m not big into the foamy head, so it doesn’t matter to me that this beer doesn’t have one.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hay-like nose and piss yello color with no head. Light malt taste and clean, bitter finish that is faint. Thin and watery. I’m insulted by this beer, which you can get everywhere in Deutschland, home of the Reinheitsgebot. Pretty bad stuff.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy, low head despite good condition. Initial malt aromas reapper in the mouth along with what seems to be an adjunct flavour despite its reinheitsgebot roots, but then there is nothing to stop a German brewer using adjuncts for beers exported outside Germany.
