2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale yellow with a quickly disappearing foamy head. Taste is quite flat and watery and slightly bitter. Not bad but not great either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale yellow color with a small, foamy head. Aroma has some muddled hops and grain. Pretty carbonated. It tastes very much like raw grains instead of malted barley. Kind of "dirty" taste to it as well; it’s more earthy and hazy tasting (if that’s possible) than I’d like. I wouldn’t search it out again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rather slight aroma, some basic light grainy maltiness and faintly spicy, grassy hop. Pale golden color, very clear and sparkling with a fluffy head. Pale malt start, the middle very slightly sweet and the finish is dry and lightly bitter, very crisp indeed. Body is of course light, mouthfeel is well-carbonated. Has more flavor than some of the more well-known export German Pilsners.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
AKA Bitburger. That’s what I thought as I drank this. Good, clean, refreshing, well balanced pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clean, light malt and hop flavors, medium bitterness. Dry finish. Not bad, good balance, just not flavorful enough.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A white, frothy head tops a pale yellow body. Nothing remarkable about this beer. Your run of the mill pils. Nice cold on a hot summer day, perhaps, as a side to food but certainly not something to be sipped and savored on its own.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Nothing offensive about this, but at the same time nothing much of note. A little bit of lemon in the finish.
Re: rate nice grassy hops, lightly toasted malt. A little honey. A bit sweet in the finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thin body, moderate head. Aroma is lacking, a bit metallic perhaps. Virtually flavorless, a touch of hops present. Overall a thin beer, a dime a dozen.
