1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thanks to Jack for the bottle. Clear light gold, pure white head, nice lacing. Nose is lemon, lightly malty. Some dough,rather boring. Flavor isjust odd. Almost clovey (or is that rubbing alcohol?) notes, some lemon, dough.

No bad in its ranks. The expected thinnish body, the elliptical tang of hops, the quite engineered-looking head of unbeerlike foam... and yet decently enjoyable. The grainy flavor fills in what the lack of fullness leaves out. Hops aren’t unpleasant but are a bit closed-in and inexpressive.

Poured a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Grainy and malty sweet but hops were actually in there. Not much in the way of a crisp bitter finish but hey what could you expect.

Pour is a bright yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a very sweet smelling malt. Flavor is a nice dose of hops with a thin touch of malt. Finishes clean and crisp albeit kinda flat. Decent but nothing to get excitied over. Tastes better than a Warsteiner and a whole heck of a lot cheaper.

I didn’t like this beer much at all. It has a strange, but UN-pleasent taste. Many people seem too like it, but’s not my sort of brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle, ice cold, into a pilsner glass. purchased at aldi for $4.49 ($5.01 w/ all chicago, cook county, & IL taxes). For $5 you could do a lot worse (and I have!). Poured with a fluffy white head that dissapated quickly for a german pils. Lots of carbonation. Grassy hop aroma and flavor. Mediocre malt flavor. The hop bitterness stays with you for a while after each swallow. Kind of reminded me of DAB a bit. I think Th. Simon also brews DAB, too, and my impressions of it are similar, but I like DAB better. I’d take it over a Warsteiner for the price. If all you’ve got is a five spot and can dig a penny out of the sofa cushion, this is a passable choice.

Overrated in my opinion. Not terrible, just totally unremarkable. Life is too short to drink this mediocre beer.

No, this beer is not for me. No aroma, no special appearance, normal flavor and normal palate. Germany beer are normaly better than this.

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.
