3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Sweet, bready malts. ... Appearance: Golden, with diminishing head. ... Flavor: Sweet, malty from start to finish. Consistent, but a bit on the watery side for me. ... Palate: Pure malt, enjoyable. ... Overall: Be careful about this one: Some of the labels down here in Texas have it listed as "Original Premium" and call it a malt liquor-- thank you, Oakes, for clarifying that -- but a decent selection, nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had a slight sour tang and a mild biscuit flavor, but overall a honeyish malt, herbal hops, and a clean lingering bitterness. Very light-bodied. Meh.

My wife and I sampled this beer together and mine looked and smelled very different than hers. Mine was hazy and very yeasty smelling. Good beer though. Neat to drink a beer from the oldest brewery in the world (1040 according to the label) Yeasty straw flavor with stong aroma. Enjoyed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pale golden; thin white, quickly diminishing white head; grainy, dusty nose, traces of dough and caramel and a tinge of citrusy fruitiness; quite crisp, slightly sweetish flavour with a touch of bitterness; short grainy, citrusy finish with some hoppy traces. A pleasant, decent Helles, above the average...........

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light blonde with a wuickly dissipating white head. Aroma is of honey soaked malts but no hops. Body is light with a rather low amount of CO2. Flavor is rather one dimensional in the sweet malt but this is an all malt beer and it shows in the characterful sweetness of the malts. Very clean and mild bitterness. One major Kudo for this beer: absolutely no off-flavors to speak of. A rather bland but quaffable beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours blond with a frothy white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with some alcohol notes. Rather carbonated and slightly bitter, watery texture with a mildly malt bite. Nothing special my explanation would be refreshingly unimpressive. A very average beer

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Yellow clear colour with a nice lace head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Very dull flavour and crisp finish, some speciel flavour at all.

(Bottled, bought at the Brewery pub) A boring beer, with very little taste at all. I don’t know why they bother to brew this when they have other splendid beers!

I don’t know why this beer gets so low reviews. It’s a good lager - full of flavor, good mouth-feel, and smooth finish. Has an unfiltered hazy golden appearance with a fairly large head. Sweet malty aroma with some floral hops. Malt flavor tastes like there is honey mixed in with the beer. Also has a nice crisp hops flavor of citrus.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty typical of average-good German beers. A little too light in flavor and body for my personal taste, but it’s refreshing in an American lager way, and at least better than that.
