look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: Clear medium golden color, with a modest white head, slight carbonation, and thin, fine lacing.
Aroma: Mildly sweet malt, pleasant spicy herbal hop aroma, and a faint note of skunk.
Taste: Opens with mildly tart malt, and understated hops. Midway through the taste, some citric notes appear. Finishes with a mildly bitter metallic hop note.
Mouth feel: Smooth, pleasant, and fairly full.
Drinkability/notes: Well-crafted example of a nondescript style.
Thanks to Max for hand-carrying this beer from Germany.

2.88/5 rDev -19.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75
11.2 oz. bottle acquired in the greater Washington D.C. area after a pilsner tasting, unknown bottling date, poured into my Snallygaster mug, drank 11/6/13 over a half-hour.
A: 2/3 - straw yellow-golden coloration, high clarity (can both see or read through), thin white head quickly fizzled out into almost nothing, no alcohol legs
S: 7/12 - clean lager yeast aroma, adjuncts (corn and/or rice), pretty standard for a light adjunct/adjunct lager
T: 14/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's little-to-no bitterness; in the middle of the mouth, the adjunct and lager yeast flavors kick in; clean aftertaste
M: 2/5 - moderate carbonation, thin-bodied (essentially watery), little alcohol presence
O: 5/10 - don't understand the appeal of this beer at all, and don't even understand how it scored as high as an 81 on this site (I guess only because it's a German import); to me, it's in the same league as the typical American adjunct lagers with lots of the same characters - little-to-no flavor - no flaws but totally innocuous; if for whatever reason you're looking for a German lawnmower beer, this would be a decent choice, but I cannot imagine ever purchasing this
TOTAL = 30/50
