1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A Mes rate:
33cl bottle thanks to Chris. Pale blonde colour with no head. Shockingly bad aroma with just some very off, rotting cardboard to note. Flavour was thankfully a little better. The cardboard is still there but less pronounced. Light malty notes and slight caramel with some slight oxidisation due to it being a year out of date. To be honest it probably did it a few favours... Not a world beater by any stretch of the imagination.

Bottle. Dark golden colour with a medium bubbly head. Sweet malty bit fruity aroma. Flavour is bit crispy, malty and bit sweet, fruity, hoppy. Nice fruity sweetish finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Sample #8 [bottled] at the first Biertest-Online Gathering, Düsseldorf, 29.12.06) Clear, pale golden colour with a foamy white head. Moderately sweet, slightly bready, cookie-like aroma with notes of citrus and a herbal touch. Sweetish, slightly sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Malty, slightly bready and moderately fruity taste, slim, slightly bitter finish with a whiff of herbal hops.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
OK Pale Ale, but is more like a lager than an ale. Very pale in colour with a thin white head. Sweet malts and a light bitterness which is very light, lighter than both IPA and American Pale Ale’s.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Fresh malty aroma with citrus notes. Moderate to thin white foam over a bright golden body. Citric flavour with a short bitter aftertaste. Slightly metallic impression. I would rather label the beer a standard pale lager and not a pale ale (Thanks to Eva for bringing the bottle back from Barcelona.)

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Clear light golden color, a thin white layer of foam for a head. Smells like wet cardboard, yuck, artificial taste, nothing enjoyable at all about this beer, what a pity it travelled all the way from Spain to Japan to get poured out.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - best before 30/8/03! Overall a pretty average beer, deserving of it’s average score. Slightly lemony aroma, but not much else. It has a sweet flavour that is not badly balanced, however not too interesting either. Could do worse.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) Poured a pale yellow. Very little aroma, a dry beer with sweet tones. Not unpleasant and can be refreshing, but not a good beer.
