2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a light golden color with absolutley no head. Tastes like most typical pale lagers. I bumped up the rating a bit because it was nice of the palate. Sweet malty flavor. Would be nice on a hot day.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of the best new beers to hit the market, very smooth and in a world where everyone seems to love IPAs, this is a nice alternative to the run of the mill offerings at the bar.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was musty and dirty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The semi-thick flavor contained notes of mild hops and dough. Not one that I would drink again. A forgettable beer that gave me gas!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, consumed - or whatever part of it I can bear to consume - from a Zywiec glass ice-cold. Pale yellow-gold, moderate head doesn’t fade away instantly but still leaves little trace after a couple of minutes...honey, corn sugar and a hint of musk in the faint, not unpleasant but not exactly delightful nose...body is very sweet, with some hints of bready malt, mostly a corn syrup texture and flavor, a bit of metal or rust at the finish that’s rather unpleasant...syrupy yet watery body, low carbonation doesn’t help matters. I figured this would be bad, but it was in the .99 bin and I have fond memories of Beck’s - my first girlfriend loved German beer (and it was she who really turned me onto beer actually), and in the mid-late 80s in Chicago, your German beer choices at the liquor store or supermarket were basically Beck’s, St. Pauli Girl, DAB and half a dozen others not appreciably better or worse. So once in a while...but it will be a long while now, I think.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours golden yellow and incredibly clear, with a small, white foam head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of caramel, bread, and honey. Taste is slightly sweet with a just a hint of bitterness in the finish. There’s really not much in the way of unique flavors to identify. My best interpretation would be that it tastes like a very weak ginger ale that’s only been lightly sweetened. On the tongue, it feels thin with a light body. Overall, it’s drinkable, and that’s about it, as there’s absolutely nothing to get excited about. There’s a reason why the store had these on a buy-one-get-one-free special, and now I know that reason.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the glass it has golden yellow color with a medium head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is pretty straight forward with bitterness, herbs and grain. Not much here.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is grainy with a touch of hops. Still better than most american pale lagers.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,33 l bottle, bought and drunk in Vegas, cause not available on the german market. Is ist so bad? Let´s try it. Clear golden in the glass, small head. Some strange hop elements with flat malt on the nose. Taste is like an average lager with a little bit extra musty malt and some elements of additional hop. Okay, no need to get it in my home area.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle - Pours light amber, white head. Honestly, I thought the best thing about this was the weird and unique aroma. Now, I try to evaluate beers honestly, but they end up sounding the same, by style, because basically there are similar characteristics. However, this beer smelled like refrigerated flowers and a whiff of something you might get walking by the perfume/cologne counter at Dillard’s. Flavor was plain ol’ regular pale lager like every other crappy pale lager I’ve ever tasted.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear, dark gold. One inch quick white head with no lacing or retention. Aroma of faint cereal. Taste is sweet. Light bodied, soft carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of cereal grains, slight caramel, grass and skunk. Expected a little more from this, nothing going on here.............
