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.

Pale gold, white head. Taste has some mildly sweet malts and watery fizz. Very drinkable, not offensive and completely nondescript. Middle of the road everylager.

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.

Creamy. One beer with itneresting feaures, different taste than other lagers but still within the boundaries of the regular stuff. Nice head and colour.

500ml bottle. Very pale yellow (Lovibond 3). Good sized head lasts fairly long. Lacing is ample. Aroma is quite repulsive - like a wet dog. Tastes rather mellow with initial sweetness and hops to balance out. Im impressed with the balance but there's nothing really special about this.

hmmm. Estonia. This night is getting worse and worse. This beer just tastes like fermented shoe leather. No taste, bad aftertaste and surely a big hangover tomorrow. No good. Really watery colour.

Big can from Blaisure. Thin straw body w slight head. Nose is hay, water and metal. Taste is thin corny malts and slight sweet. Not offensive, as some are, but not much going for it either.

500ml from my local lcbo. Typical golden pour, next to no head. Aroma of wet grass, cardboard and corn. More sweet corn and cheap cereals in the finish with next to no bitterness. Lcbo, why?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500mL bottle, showed up unannounced at my local likboe. Pours a pale yellow with a small white foam. Aroma is of your standard pale malt syrup with peppery hops. Flavour has that odd ’East Euro’ malt character that I can’t quite describe, but is a little grainy. Nutty, and with some quick, peppery hop zing in the finish. Not a whole lot going on, and yet another in a long, long line of pointless beers the LCBO seems to feel the need to shower us with. Where’s my Aldaris Zelta?
