2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Yellow with thin, white head. Quite bland with no distinct odors, nor distinct taste. Malts and hops apparent, but this is what you call a very average beer. Nothing bad, but nothing outstanding. Do you call this forgettable? After writing all the above I got down to the last swig and noticed a bit of a bitter aftertaste. So maybe I will remember it after all...at least well enough to avoid in the future.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Pours a typical goldish colour with minimal head. No skunk surprisingly but aroma 3was largley of stale hops - saaz probably? Flavour was mild , slightly malty with a bit more IBUs than expected. Not fantastic but OK cold.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light orange gold color. Small to no head. Aroma is kind of nasty, pencil shaving and cardboard. A light to medium bodied dort/helles style lager. Malts are mild and fruity with a touch of corn. Hops are very mild and slightly crisp. Except for the awful aroma, this beer is a typical euro-lager; bland, mild and skunky. The flavor is much better than the nose. Crisp and light, but so are 1000s of other beers of this type. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle in Europe. Perhaps the bottle was old, but beer was quite bitter and unpleasant. Never again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in the USA. Had some skunk in the aroma. Drinking this wasn’t much different from all the euro macro’s. Would maybe pick this up again if i saw it in a can.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had in austria. I know I didnt like this beer in the USA when I had it and I had better expectations for it in Austria. I was dissapointed. Very bland overall with a harsh astringent aftertaste and overly carbonated. Flavor is also too grainy and cereal like. Not good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pale yellow with a nice sized white head. Grassy grainy hop aroma. Fairly unexciting with a very mild bitterness with a touch of malt. Mainstream Euro lage. Light palate. Drinkably boring.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing too impressive, nice colour and ok head, but has a not-really-nice malty aroma and taste, and nothing much more. It was in the fridge fo 8 hours, so it was cold, but it wasn’t refreshing at all. It’s passable overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich golden colour. Crisp refreshing taste. Not a great complex beer but great for sitting out in the sun.
