Poured into a A&W Root beer mug.

A: Appearance is probably the best part of this beer, looks light-golden with a small head, but could have to do with glass that went through dishwasher.

S: Ew, not very appealing at all. Smells of skunky, tin only. The skunky aroma fills the area surrounding me after opening the bottle, very disgusting. I don't mind skunky but this is like "off-skunky" After all it comes in a green bottle it will get skunky as Heineken does I suppose. (btw Heneiken is waaaay better than this)

T: Eh, ok nothing to great or offensive. Thankfully it doesn't taste like it smells, no tinny strangeness. Just a general grain taste, with a slight hop bitterness. No hop flavors. Disappointing as this is supposedly an import beer from the fatherland of lager.

M: Slightly and pleasantly carbonated. If everything else was great this would compliment the possible theoretical flavors and smells of this beer.

O: 2.50 . It's just not that great. It's not horrible like budweiser or miller lite. But it is a sub-par beer with Heineken *somehow* being better than this! Comon local party store, stock some quality authentic German lager!! Not this stuff!! ;)

Sampled right now on 12/31/13. A single 12-oz bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a clear pale yellow in color with a very thin white head. Some lacing was seen which each sip.. Lots of streaming bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass but good carbonation. The aroma is on the strong side and just of grains. The taste is crisp and clean and is of grain. Goes down pretty easy. Overall, it's not too bad.

I really like this beer. Traveled Europe, Canada and SA for work and have had several hundred types. Yes, it is like Heineken but more everything! Listen, people rated Mirror Pond and Sierra Nevada - for it's high alcohol content. People tend to like to get a kick, especially when you drink lots. I'm a PHD and know that from all the alcoholics I see. This is a great tasting beer!
