3.05/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look - Light straw or hay in color. Decent carbonation, and about a finger and a half's worth of foam that dissipates very quickly.

Smell - typical German pilsner smell that I personally don't care for. Very hopy.

Taste - quite bitter, and fairly strong at the back of the palate. Still, lighter in taste. Not as bitterly hopy as it could be.

Mouthfeel - oddly enough, creamier than I would have thought it to be, but still somewhat light.

Drinkability - I'd say that if you're looking for a lighter feeling German pils that's not actually a light lager, this wouldn't be too bad. Still, not one of my favorites.

Serving type: bottle

2.89/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: Decent straw golden with good head and retention.

S: Grain, malt and light hop. Kinda plain.

T: Same as the smell.

M: Smooth and refreshing. Maybe a tad watery.

O: This beer isn't as bad as many make it out to be, but not as good as I remember.

Serving type: can

2.71/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Serving: Bottle, from the bottle
Served: 13 July 2014

Appearance: Had this one from the bottle, but the bottle is green which is never a good sign with beer, especially 'imports'. Label says it was brewed in St. Louis according to German Reinheitsgebot.

Smell: This bottle isn't skunked, so that's good. Smells otherwise of light, sweet malts, and some astringent earthiness.

Taste: You can tell this one is all-grain when you compare it to American macros, which is nice, but it doesn't make up for much. The taste is slightly fuller than a Miller Lite but has a weird funk to it that definitely isn't skunkiness and is certainly something else.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation at least makes this one refreshing.

Overall: Not a great beer, and one that I would only drink if it was free at a party.
