Can 500ml (BB 12/2011)
Clear pale yellow color, small white head. Grainy barley and wort aroma. Light bodied. Flavor is quite expected: light sweet maltyness, plastic, corn, very light bitterness. This is not totally hopeless as it has 2.9% instead of eg. 0.5%.

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl can, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff.
Arôme houblonné, fruité et citronné.
En bouche, bière légère, amertume houblonnée, citronné le tout restant très faiblard avec une touche de malt. Le tout reste léger sans vraies saveurs avec tout ce que l’on désire d’extraits de houblon et malt.
Palais est moyen avec une note de picotement.
