5.3% ABV
12.2 oz brown beer bottle $2.99 at Provisions Northampton MA
Date - 30.04.15
Appearance: Pale transparent yellow - very light color, small head sticks around, small carbonation
Smell: smells like a budweiser
Flavor: very mild traditional beer flavor, very little hop bitterness
Overall: 2/5 If you like beer and aren't a fan of the swing to hop heaviness this is ok...but I don't like regular beer
So this isn't at all to my taste. At least it was cheap.

Straw-colored, with a white, average head. It seems a bit too carbonated in the appearance.
The smell is a light malt, and a even lighter hop, very light.
The taste is a bit more resolute. A quite definite malt, and a more definite perception of the bitterness.
Medium-light-light body. In the aftertaste the hop is quite definite. And the bitterness is quite longstanding.
Drinkable.

Pours a three-finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear pale greenish straw color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Bready malt nose and flavor is dry, grainy, some sweetness, smooth. Best before Nov 2016 $3.25 for a 360ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

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

Appearance: Straw color; big, white head.
Smell: Some very light grass, hops
Taste: Overall fairly balanced between malts and hops; Starts with a slightly bitter, grassy taste but develops into a more level, perhaps biscuity ending.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation, besides the big head; refreshing but lacks any kind of a “kick”. A rather oily aftertaste.
Drinkability: An OK, refreshing beer but it’s failed to impress me all 3 times I’ve drank it.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Pale straw color. White , rocky, crown shows good retention. Floral, mildy malt, aromas & piney touch. Crispy with subtle citric touch upfront. Clean earthy bitterness lingers into the finish balanced by moderate maltiness. Smooth palate. Light to medium body, lively carbonation.

Not a huge fan of euro lager in general. Trying to rate this to style, but I'm not a fan. Smells skunky, tastes skunky. Aftertaste is skunky. Great skunky euro lager that puts others I've had to shame if that makes any sense.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Has a small, stable head, with a clean bright yellow color.

Reveals aromas of wheat, hay and subtle, bready malts. No aroma hops detectable in this. Subtle floral hop smell becomes recognizable, as the beer warms up, adding to the lovely, slightly sweeter malts.

The taste however yields a pleasantly hoppiness, right from the beginning, adding a crisp floral note to the dough, bready malts. Turns slightly dry during the finish, with grassy, noble hops being as present as the malts. The hop bitterness finds a fitting, crisp intensity, without revealing any signs of tropical fruits, for the hops becoming a major centerpiece in thia beer, interacting well with the sweeter, still bready malts. Has a clean, semi dry finish, with toffeeish malts. Light bodied with a pleasant, noteable hoppy aspect.
