1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Another bland brew from Eastern Europe. Started out alright but the sweetness and nasty grains were too overpowering in the end. Was hard to drink all 500mls. Soapy and watery with a nasty grainy undertow. Not sure what the 12% is about??

Soapy, skunky, and slightly grainy aroma. Yellow color no head. Pretty weak flavor with a tinge of cherry. Hopless and dull.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden body with short lasting head. First impression this was drinking ok but after 500ml it was starting to get a little heavy, too much sweet malts and not enough fresh hops to really impress.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear yellow with fizzy white head. Nose is faint soap, malt. Flavor of faint stale malt, rather bitter towards the end. Forgettable.

Bottle, Freo Doctor, Fremantle
Slightly old smelling noble hops, with a tiny hint of malt, Very flat, almost slick palate, with a hint of peppery spiciness and vegetative hop flavours. No malt to speak of.
Not nasty by any means, but perhaps a little battlescarred.

0,5L bottle. Golden color, not so rich aroma, balanced flavor. But without aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Dark green Bottle. Talk about an underrated beer. This goes down smoothly. The flavor is gentle, slightly sweet but malty with distinctive signature. Well ballanced, not as hoppy and carbonated as some other pills. The head disappears rather quickly leaving little or no lacing. I’ve had this hundreds of times and it never seems to become stale, tastes as great as the first time I tried it. This is my favorite pilsner next to Urquell.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a even white head. Aroma of hops and light malt. Taste was very similar, except sweeter. Strong carbonation and light metallic undertones. I was a little leery about trying this beer, since it was the only one left on the singles shelf. It was decent though.

Haven’t had a lager in months! A pils in even longer. Minimal head and lace, even with the most vigorus pour. Clear faint yellow. "Skunk" aroma, but plesant. Classic Saaz hop pils, but VERY refreshing. Some bitterness/metallic as palate goes along. Enjoyable lager, as lagers go (with me anyways.)
