1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: clear yellow, short soapy white head, almost no lacing. Aroma: skunky grass and grains. Taste: pepper, grass, dried hay, wet bread. Finish: mineral, with a hint of cracker after a few seconds. Notes: As I tried this, I thought "this sure tastes like a skunky heineken". Now I see that this is a heineken-owned brewery. Something tells me they are just brewing the heineken recipe and bottling it in Almaza bottles. Either way, it’s straight shite.

A yellow watery excuse for a beer. Could pass as a sugar free lemonade. Avoid.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours out like you might expect it - clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Medium balanced carbonation. Nose is alright of hops and straw. It didn’t taste as boring as expected, it was smoother and nicer: Ripe hops, light malt, white bread and caramel. Easy to drink, refreshing.
