3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 Aroma is faint with mild hops. Appearance is golden with minimal head. Flavor is slightly watery with a touch of lemon and hops. It has a very creamy mouthfeel. Good tasting lager. Not a complex dort/helles but not a bad choice for something lighter in the summer. Good beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Weird bitterness. Every time I think of this, I think of that Motley Crue behind the music, so the whole damn thing's ruined right there. Drink this and Nikki Sixx will show up at your house with a syringe and the next thing you know your heart's stopped. Seriously, though, weird bitterness here that I didn't like. Perhaps I got an old bottle, last time I had this stuff it came from the ghetto grocery store I was working at after classes.

the aroma is quite a sweet malt flavour. it is perhaps a tiny bit watery in taste, but there are lots of flavours there. it leaves a nice bitter and malty taste on the back of the tongue.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malt aroma. Pours a darker straw colour with a rapidly diminishing thick foamy head. Lighter body than I remember but still much better than the old Miller or Molson copies that were around years ago.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly sweet aroma that wasn't skunky because it came directly out of a light-proof six-pack box. Flavour is just straight medium level bitterness. Has a reasonable finish. Very average.

I can remember when this was being brewed in the USA by Miller, but I'm glad to see it's back overseas, where it began. Anyway, it poured out a golden yellow color, with a slight haziness to it. Had a decent enough head on it, but didn't last too long. Slightly bitter taste to it, with a metallic finish to it as well. It did taste of malts, and a slight fresh hay quality to it also. Had bitterness aplenty. Finished kind of thin, however. A better pilsener than most on the market.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light mild adjuncty aroma. Very little hops. Something medicinal or detergent-like. Light yellow straw clear with no head. Light watery body and almost flat. Adjunct flavor - light hops with unpleasant bitter finish. Muted corn sweetness and aspirin-like bitter after. Pretty bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I'm comparing this to the Lowenbrau that used to be brewed by Miller. Compared to that this is heaven.
