Average gold color, thin but sticky white head.

Mild clean malt aroma with a whiff of sour pear or perhaps apple.

Taste is, in a word, bad. There's some crisp, sweet malt here, but it's overshadowed by a strongly metallic, astringent, drying flavor. On top of that, it turns a bit sour towards the end. There are some leafy, grassy hops in here, but they're totally ruined by the 9-volt battery flavor.

Ick, bordering on drain pour.

A. Clear straw yellow with a 1/4"head that dissipates quickly.

S. Nothing really to smell here. A bit of a slight yeasty aroma.

T. Really dissappointing here. Tastes like a poor light beer. I am not impressed.

M. Very light mouthfeel.

D. I could not have more than one of these, and I believe one is too much.

Note: Hard to find anything positive to say about this one.

11.2 oz bottle with no date, but perhaps a batch#. I am thankful for the fact that I did not spend the money on this beer.

Pours a pale golden yellow witha large head developing in my pint mug (wasn't at home or else it would have been a Pils glass) and heavy bubble action. The beer looks pretty good, but maybe it's just me not liking pale beers as much...

The smell was very minimal with a sweet malty "funk". This same flavor, or lack thereof, continued onto the tongue. Slight fruity flavor, but overall extremely lacking in anything good. This is not how I like my Pilsners.

This beer is extremely thin and seems to water down in the mouth. Again not impressive.

Overall I'm very dis-satisfied with this beer.

Fresh 11.2oz bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow with a fizzy white cap that leaves nice lacing behind. Sweet corn smell with some note reminiscent of wet hay. Tastes very slightly better, though not markedly so. Some grainy pils malt coming into play, but still a general adjunct fell. Quite sweet, and not pleasantly so. Light feel, though not really watery. Not a great take on a pilsener; really too sweet. In all honesty Jupiler (or any number of other euro lagers) would be a better alternative.

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.

Very average beer.. average in appearance, smell, taste, mouthfeel, and drinkability. Nothing special to report, just that it went down easy and I would recommend having it served extra cold. The only interesting thing that I could say about it was that it tasted very honey-like.. I'm not sure why, but the beer had a definite honey flavor to it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance – Hazy, very light yellow in color with a nice, white head that left some lacing and nice pools on top of the liquid.

Smell – There’s almost no smell to this lager except for a hint of lemon and maybe grass.

Taste – There’s almost no taste to this lager, either. The grassy, slightly sweet-n-sour attempt at a German Pils is insulting.

Mouthfeel – I enjoyed the light and carbonated mouthfeel to this one.

Drinkability – I refrained from dumping this with a shaking hand. It’s right on the edge.
