3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight wort-like aroma with a bit of a yeasty undertone and a bit of pepper making its way in at the end. Light, but persistent white head with light lacing. Slightly cloudy, pale gold appearance. Flavor has hints of yeast, with some biscuity maltiness filtering through. Slightly sweet and somewhat refreshing. Decent, almost creamy mouthfeel, just the right amount of carbonation. Very workable Pils.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright yellow/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet grain with zesty citrus notes. Flavours are also grain with soft malts and some citrus bite. I was reminded of lemon sherbert sweets. Quite floral hops are evident but this lacks bitterness or dryness on the finish. A refreshing pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden color,small white head that left a decent lace behind.Malty sweet aroma with a nice citrus and hop presence and maybe even a little spice showing through.The flavor is mild at best with a mild fruity flavor mild malt and a gentil sweetness.Not alot of hops going on here and there is a slight yeastiness as well.The spice that i mentioned in the aroma is kind of there but fairly subdued.Over all it’s a pretty smooth and easy drinking brew but it’s also nothing special,but worth trying a few times atleast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Red Lion, Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Tasty beer - some lemon and a syruppy, insistently bittersweet taste. No head or lacing. Despite the qualities above, does have some moments of thinness, and the finish is not as tasty as the Spaten beforehand. A good enough German Pils.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice amount of hop bite, smooth and clean, with a slight metallic finish. Easy to drink, but once it got a little warm, quickly turned sour. Drink this one cold.
