3/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured a straw/yellow in colour with a medium head that disappeared rather quickly. Minimal lacing.

Quite a skunky smell. Rather sweet and hoppy with a bit of malt aroma.

Quite a mild flavour but with a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Is quite light on the mouth and isn't overly carbonated.

It is drinkable but I've had better. (328 characters)

Too me very much a generic pilsener...nothing out of the ordinary.
A pale yellow colour, with decent fluffy head, & good carbonation.
Very lagerish in aroma, with some malty sweetness...a little grassy hops with some skunkiness
Started with sweet malts, with the grassy hops, touch of pepper out the back...also a hint of sour, before a restrained bitter finish.
Mouthfeel was quite light...with enough carbonation.
Drinkability seemed not too bad, but overall the flavour was neither here nor there...if I never drink this again it won't bother me too much...Felt like I had definately been here before. (605 characters)

Very cheap.... $40 for two dozen 500mL cans.
a) Pale yellow/straw. White heavy rocky head, medium bubbling
s) Lovely straw / pale malt & husk
f) Modest flavour, mostly pale malt profile, with low hop flavours. Some bitterness.
m) All up front, empty at the back, light & bland
d) A good value lawnmower beer, that starts off well, but disappears quickly. (354 characters)

Appearance - 3.0
Poured one finger of white head over a very pale gold body that looks highly carbonated. The head steadily reduced to a thin, patchy layer.

Smell - 3.5
Definite skunked aroma upon opening that reduced with time, but never disappeared. Smells quite sweet and fresh, biscuity malt, grains, light grassy hops.

Taste - 3.5
A pretty typical German pilsener - refreshing, crisp and mild in flavour. Slight malt sweetness upfront, a little toffee, grassy hops, and a dry, cracker-like finish.

Mouthfeel - 3.0
Feels light in the mouth, moderately carbonated. Goes down smoothly, although over-dryness is not entirely pleasant.

Drinkability - 4.0
Crisp, refreshing, 4.8%ABV, no off flavours, has all the makings of an easy session beer. Not hugely interesting though.

OVERALL - 3.4
This is a pretty typical, slightly above average German lager. Clearly better (and actually cheaper) than most of the major euro lagers, but falling short of the Weihenstephaner offerings. Because this comes in screw caps, and is cheap to buy, I would definitely choose it if I were looking for a session beer for a night when I don't want to think about what I am drinking. Perhaps not quite as good as their lager, but still highly drinkable. (1,239 characters)

Standard pour produces a *very* pale golden colored beer, with a uniform white head of medium duration and with nice lacing. Sharp noble hops offset by alternately tangy/biscuity malt on the nose. Quite lively on the palate, with brisk, cleansing carbonation straightaway, and almost no middle to this, straight to the dry finish it seems. Quite dry, actually, with just a touch of sweet pale malt, and slightly more than a thin body. Hops are crisp, dry, and almost evasive, but they are definitely there, working away in the background and lingering quite nicely. I've sampled this beer several times this summer and it has definitely grown on me. When served rather cold this one makes for an excellent summer heat-beater, and a beer that I’d love to pair with some spicy Thai (the Tom Yum ramen I’m cooking don’t count!) or a little bit of over the top habanero action. Seems a bit soft on the palate despite the ample carbonation and style-perfect bitterness, and I'm guessing the water is artesian but treated a bit at the brewery. I like this . . . perhaps a bit more refined than Bitburger, but definitely on par with several of my favorite Pilseners from Germany and Austria (e.g. Jever, Spaten, Stiegl)

Pleasingly pale light gold and retaining a head if pour from on hogh, it looks appealing in my glass.
Smell is weak, being watery and a hint of that sweet European malt that so characterises so many beers.
It is not overpacked with flavour , it is more of a sensation or feel in the mouth.It is not tinny or sweet more effervescent and bitter It feels good but doesnt taste like much.
The experience is pleasant I would characterise this as a good summer luncheon beer , not for large volume consumption but as a quick cleanser. (531 characters)
