look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a one finger fluffy white head that quickly disappeared to nothing, the body is crystal golden yellow.

Sweet grainy malt, hops, some lemon in the nose, refreshing.

Taste is sweet pale malt, lemony, mild earthy hops,some biscuit

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation, slight lingering bitterness that coats all of your mouth, dry, very sessionable.

A good lager that was a pleasant surprise. Not a lager fan but this style seems to appeal to me. Would definitely grab it again or sip a few next octoberfest.

pours an attractive clean gold with a decent sized pure white head. a light grain/faint lemon scent is about all that rises but it alright to me. taste wise its nice and smooth, grains and faint lemon come through with a small but nice hop bite at the end. crisp and clean mouthfeel finishes slightly dry and goes down oh so easy. another crisp clean one for washing down flavorfull food with ease.

paid $5.99 for a 6er.

look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance; clear straw yellow with a fluff white head. Bubbles are fine and large, leaving sticky lacing. Follows the style to every last detail. Head dissipates slowly, yet if pour properly, remains throughout the drink.

smell; mostly spicy hops, not much else.

taste; much more malty in a raw dough and barley flour sort of way. Slightest bit of citric hops in the finish before malts come out again. This taste a little wierd for the style but the hop/malt balance is very accurate.

mouthfeel; sting carbonation with a dry and crisp finish.

drinkability; I'm always thrown off at first but the taste grows on me and this beer is quite refreshing. I buy it often times.

One of the basic fine German lagers. Always available, reliable (unless it has been sitting to long in the store). It has a nice golden color with white head. Crips tasting, with lingering bitterness, but with enough smoothness for balance. It a beer for everyday consupmtion. Maybe this is the mass-produced version of German Bud, but at least it is good.

I hadnt had this beer in a while, as I usually leery of green bottles. But BiermanVa left a couple over at my casa after a cook out and well Im not gonna let it go to waste. Pours a nice clear golden hue with a fluffy almost pure white head. Smell was crisp with the typical German lager hoppiness, with a bit of the sweetness of the malt coming through as well. Taste was clean and crisp, a bit of slightly sweet maltiness at first which was washed away by the nice crisp drying noble hops.. A bit prickly on the tongue with the carbonation, but still nice.. Very drinkable, I can see being able to suck these down with abandon on a hot summer day. I would certainly pick up a few of them this summer, especially in the 5 liter keg which cant get light struck.

Pours a brilliantly clear, light to medium straw color with a dense white head. Aromas of slight DMS, a little floral hop note, but overall very clean. On the palate, a smooth malty rich brew hits the mouth with light and sweet flavors of Pils grain, and a bit of hop flavor. The finish is not completely dry with a lingering malt sweetness and just a balancing hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium low with moderate carbonation. A very crisp and clean beer with just a touch of hop character.

A pretty boring pour: yellow and clear, a finger's worth of head. Very translucent with a lot of carbonation present. It left some sticky lace behind, but not much. After the head dissipated it left a little bubbly ring around the edges. The nose was a typical lager/pils ; grain, soda crackers, perhaps a little lemon. It tasted like white bread, malt, some crunchy crackers. The backend was dry with a balance of sweet. Very crisp and light mouthfeel; smooth. I liked it for a good summer lager! I'll smash a few of these, yo!

the canned version was much sweeter than I remembered. The appearance was fine, if anything it was better than the bottle because of the way the pour looked. the smell was the same but a bit sweeter, and the taste was the same, but sweet: grains, bit of hops and sweetness. the feel was fine, but the drinkability really suffers because the added flavour.
