2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma slightly metallic with a hint of wheat. Appearance is pale yellow and pasturised clear. Flavour has a small amount of fruitiness and saaz spicy hop flavour but leaves no aftertaste. Easy to drink but little mouthfeel. Only had this on draught and probably wouldn't worry about it again.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2004 Ugh - draft tasted like chilled liquid metal. Downright nasty. Didn't really have any "beer" flavor, just chemicals. If you want to keep your taste buds intact, avoid this bottled/fermented formaldahyde at all costs.

Better than Heineken, but not by much. A little skunky and metalic tasting.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 out of the bottle at bar: aroma is a little skunked, but that's ok with me..Can actually taste some hops at the finish, body is a little thin.Hops are noticeable but not overpowering.Much better than Heineken and any German beer is good with me.I really admire their Purity Law, if only we had one. I think this blows any domestic macro right out of the water.Certainly not the best German beer, but this is my import of choice until I find a better one.

Nasty commercial beer. It stinks, it tastes bad and it's not particularily cheap.

Typical German macro-pilsener. Quite refreshing and easy to drink but nothing really special.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottled. This is nasty. Extremely sweet lager which just bites at your throat. I hope never to drink this again, and only finished the bottle in order to rate it fairly here. Obviously lagers do not have to be bad, so why does this sell so well? Score 0.6
Subsequent rating scored 1.9. Average becomes 1.2

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was suprised. Extremely pale gold, short sudsy head. Wee bit of hoppy aroma with some roast. Flavour was good. Some bitters and cereals with fruity florals. I could taste a mild smokiness. I don't know if that is normal but it wasn't bad. Rounder than Heineken and Stella combined. Still wouldn't pay $45+ for a case. Not bad for macro.

I wonder what the marketing budget is for this? If I drink it will it increase my desirability? With women that have sculpted breasts and designer smiles? Will it give me that je ne sais quoi I have yearned for so long? If the marketing budget were increased could I get a pair of slacks to go with it? This is so good. So good. (aside, thanks for the cash) I want more. I NEED more. so good, so good. UhHuH
