2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little sweet, similar to a brown ale even though it’s not. Heavier on the malt. Pares well with my "Spanish" lunch.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma: The smell is weak, very corn cereal, a bit sweet, raisins and strawberries- No acidity, no bitterness.
Appearance: The beer is clear pale straw colored, small bubbles, a white head that settles quickly, but leaves some lacing.
Taste: Starts sweet, once more the strawberry association, some corn flakes, anonymous fruity tones, like esters, a slight sour, lemon, and bitter soap presence.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, small bubbles, no body, a chemical soapy feeling. A somewhat dry finish.
Overall: Overall I find it hard imagining this beer to be good in any situation.
Note: Bottle 250 ml. Reviewed 2011-04-21.

Golden colour and white head. A decent lager that didn’t stick it’s head out neither in a positive or negative direction. Light sweet taste and aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from the Good Wine Shop, London. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white head. Corn and a bit of cardboard in the nose. Light sweet flavor with some crispy cereal, cardboard and faint, toasted straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mildly crisp on the finish with moderate sweetness, but the persisting cardboard character really isn’t doing this beer any favors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with steady bubbles and a nicely proportioned head. Nose of gentle herb notes and mainly a pale malt background.Taste of hay, then caramel with a grassy hop note running through. Palate is medium bodied, with a medium, tangy texture and a crisp finish. Overall, a well made strong lager.
