4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Probably one of my favorite mass-produced beers. It's Munich-style, and it tastes like a Munich-style should. I haven't had it in the US yet, it might taste different here. I know it did when it was bottled by Miller.

Smells like Dina Richeys party in 1989, getting laid on the hardwood floor in the living room at a kegger. As far as I know, it's the best Dortmunder/Helles beer I've had this week.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 Canned (ABV 4,5%)
Typical yellow lager look. Lots of CO2. Small foamy white head. Not much aroma, just some metallic malty tones. Taste is weak also, some bitterness in the finish. This is like another American standard.
Re-rated, can, alc. 4.5% (BB 10/2006)
Pale golden yellow color with good white head. Malty, fruity aroma - a bit like some kind of Belgium ale. Quite carbonated. Fruiy malty flavor backed with decent grassy hops. Hoppy aftertaste. Good malt profile here supported by tasty hops. (4/2/7/3/11 2.7)

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hard to tell this beer was a malt. Definately something that I could drink many of. A small head, and pale color. Nothing too special, but it was good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can - not much aroma, a bit of malt. Appearance is of an American Standard. Very pale yellow with a white, white head. The flavor actually surprised me. I was given several of these by a guy at work and did not really like the first several. I was about to drain pour the rest to make room in the fridge and it's been there over a year. However I wanted to rate it first. I left the can out while I was drinking another beer. It warmed, of course. I then noticed a very nice malt sweetness. Still not great, but I think I'll drink the rest instead of dumping it.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Gold, short soapy head. Virtually no aroma. Lots of apple and grass. Minimal hop or malt flavours. This beer is not as popular as it used to be. Was it better?

500 ML sample- As soon as I took a whiff of this stuff I caught what seemed to be some mint and herbal scents. That was very nice. Head was almost non-existant. Colour was light straw. Light bodied, went down easy. Nothing groundbreaking though.
