1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Light hoppy and grassy aroma. Very pale yellow color, white foam. Watery with some hoppy and malty tones. Short dry finish. Drinkable and not so horrible like almost light beers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Can. Thanks to SaintMatty) Straw colour with frothy, white head. Malty, grainy nose with notes of cereal, bread, hay and hints of tropical fruit. Malty taste with white bread, hay, corn, grain and faint traces of grassy hops. Thin body, with some malt sweetness. Fairly clean and quite decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can (Rimi, Tallinn)
5- Very feeble malty and hoppy aroma, just hint of tanginess to the hops, maybe ginger.
2- Very pale, fizzy.
5- There are malts and grains in there, certainly. Retronasals actually quite hoppy, that ginger in the aroma was no hallucination.
2- Watery and fizzy. Not worth 2, but the finish is actually flavoursome - all those hops and breadiness do hang around for a while.
8 This is a paradox. I had to give it those almost-decent scores above because it does actually have all the components that one requires from an OK beer. A 5:2:5:2 would normally come in at a 10 overall, but as all the minus signs show, there was something undeserving about each of those too, so I have to punish it. It’s just too weak and watery for me to really enjoy. Remove half the water, and this would be a storming pilsner.

500ml Can - Pale golden with moderate carbonation. Malty and grassy aroma with hints of milky weetabix. Grainy and malty taste with hints of corn and weetabix. Watery, thin and tastes like a diluted version of their standard lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Pale golden body, small head. Aroma has cereals. Taste has some raw barley and is a bit sour and citric. Dry and thin finish. Seems to be based on "Premium", which is already watery at 4,7% to begin with.
