2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured a bright golden color lager with a large pure white foamy head. Aroma of sweet cereal notes is OK and somewhat bland. Taste is also dominated by sweet cereal notes. Body is on average for style with good carbonation. Too sweet for my taste but no major brewing flaws apart form being a bit too bland.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Have to admit it’s hard to rate this beer without making fun of the name. Sorry even us beer snobs get to be juvenile now and then. Very skunky scent that has already turned me off upon opening. Grass weeds and skunk. Yeah this is going to be great. Looks all right, light pale yellow pour with lots of head. The taste is better than the scent. Easy to drink, low carbonation. The head just won’t go away though. Not the best beer for a man with a stache. Overall it’s tolerable, the scent is enough of a turn off that I won’t be touching this again. If you like that skunky hops style you may like this more than I.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
November 2008: Posh golden can with a foil covering over the ringpull, mine held 500ml and was taken during a lager tasting evening. The can also claimed the beer is a ’limited edition’, not sure it is!
This was a bog standard pilsner in every way, nothing special in any aspect. Typical lager colour, typical lager non-smell, typical mouthfeel too.
This beer could have been German, Czech, Polish or even American. Not a great beer, just average throughout.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Creamy. One beer with itneresting feaures, different taste than other lagers but still within the boundaries of the regular stuff. Nice head and colour.
