2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. It pours a quite pale golden body under a decent white head. Mostly grainy and malty on the nose, but there’s also a fruity touch, apple and a little lime. Quite dry in the mouth, medium to thin body, with flavors of pale malt, grains dominating, but there’s a hoppy fruityness coming stronger towards the end. Decent bitterness. I’m not sure what happens when the beer warms up, I drank it from the fridge, and then it did the job as a quencher or lawnmower beer. A decent lite beer it is. (080525)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can. Clear golden body with a big white head. Aroma is mild grain and fruity. Flavor is rather fruity (apple and citrus) with some malt and certain bitterness. Surprisingly OK at the first sip, then some kind of annoying artificial subflavour is noticed. This flavor isn’t really bad, just reducing the surprisingly positive first impression by a few pints. Not the worst low cab beer at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can. Pale golden colour. White creamy head. High carbonation level with lots of bubbles rising to the top. Crisp citrusy hop aroma. Notes of pine. Crisp malt flavour with grainy notes. Powdery texture and a prickly sensation from the hops. Light bodied. Very refreshing and delicate. Reminds me of a kölsch. Did not have high hopes for this beer, but I kind of like it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
As bland as it gets. Sickly pale, the only flavour is artificail sweetener. Amazing that there is a market for this!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big white fine-bubbled lasting head. Yellow body with carbonation. Clean, rather neutral malty aroma with apple notes. Dry malty apple aroma with papery notes. Smooth clean mouthfeel. Dry cardboard and corn aftertaste with metallic notes. Faint sweetness with quite a lot of butter (when warmer). Could be worse. (0.5l can, Meny, Oslo.)
