2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden color with foam layer. Smells like wet grains. The taste is well balanced, fitting carbonation, light bitterness in the finish and everything. However I don’t like the wet grain taste and aftertaste of the malt.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Clean, light malt profile, grainy. Light sweetish, very subtle bitterness. Drinkable but also far from being characterful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Corn, grains, malty.
A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Corn, grains, straw, slightly sweet, crisp.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.
O- I think this one explains itself. While it’s not something I’d seek out, it was good for what it was and I can appreciate it for that. Not my thing but far from being bad.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is slightly husky and grainy without a hop presence. The flavor is pretty bland and boring, grainy and slightly resembling cardboard in a way. Light bodied and very fizzy with a bland flabby malt finish. About what was expected.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, light golden pour with thin, stable white head. Delicious & classic malty German aroma and matching taste. Light sweetness and silky smooth body. Similar to a Heineken with a little more subdued & refined character. Just an overall well done & easy drinking lager with a little more character than usual. My final 3.2 doesn’t do it much justice or tell the whole story, 5 out of 5 for the style. It’s official for me, Germany makes the best lagers. Very nice!
