2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: Poured a light golden color pils with a small bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of faint grassy malt is a bit deceiving. Taste is weaker then expected with some grassy/floral malt which were enjoyable but totally lack crispy hops which could have made this beer interesting. A bit deceiving since I made sure to pick up a can in order to ensure freshness which totally seem to be lacking here.

I think I remember drinking this in a Berlin movie theatre. Had it recently and found it boring: mostly grassy smells, a slightly sweet graininess and a bit of aluminum in the finish. I know German pilseners are not known for earthy, hoppy tastes, but this was just a bit flat for me.

A light amber coloured beer with a thickish white head. A distinctly hop and wheat aroma with a hint of malt in the finish. The taste is a tangy hop flavour with wheat and malt in the finish.

Bottle from Michigan, thanks Don. Poured a straw color with a large frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Heavy hoppy grass and citrus aroma. Medium body. Well balanced hoppy grass flavor with a medium smooth dry finish. Good drinkable brew.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 Nice aroma, kind of grassy, herbal -- pleasant. Flavor is semi-sweet but balanced with some hops, great dry/crisp finish which makes you want another and another. A great value for the price.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Aldi. A fluffy hopped spritzy lager. Quite drinkable and with some lager hop bitterness. Quite cheap. Nothing special. Malt is fairly ugly - grainy and wheaty, and the carbonation a bit excessive for my taste. The hops are the main attraction, but they are a bit old tasting. I like Pilsners when they are fresh and unfiltered, but I don’t find them attractive when left to go stale in a bottle.

Bottle. Sweet malt aroma. Pale yellow color with little head. Slightly sweet malt flavor with moderate hops - a bit skunky. Decent body. An extreme bargain at Aldi’s in US for $4 a sixer.
