1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow colour, small head fainting quickly. I could taste the alcahol wich is very rare for a beer that low in alcahol. Flavour is light, dry and hoppy.
Palate is not good, very simple.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 Light golden color. Noticeable about this beer is that it is very smooth and not very bitter for a german premium pilsener. Tastes more like Lager than like a Pilsener from the northern part of Germany. But still pretty nice. Re-rate: After having several of these in the last time, I also noticed the smoothness, which makes this a Pilsener that is enjoyable even after the 3rd and 4th one.

Ah the Bud Light of Germany. Bottle. Light straw color, smells yeasty, no real strong scent at all. The taste is light and easily forgettable. Sweet in the roof of the mouth. No Good. Kind of like St Pauli NA. After warming in the glass did collect a redeeming bitterness that was quite welcome.

This beer had a very pungent, unpleasant aroma for such a pale yellow brew. I found it very difficult to drink... there are way better pilseners out there for much better prices.

The malt profile in this one was great, it tasted like a fresh baked pancake but with a touch of spice (skunk) just to make it real unique. Robust and flavorsome, creamy mouthfeel and underdeveloped aromas.

Pretty good German lager... a beer like this should be the minimum standard for macro lagers.
