2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasting at Matt’s, can
Golden color; the aroma is a bit more grainy, malty than the 10, it’s also sweeter, not so boozy, less chemicals, more easily drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber colour with no head. Aroma of sweet nuttiness and floral notes. Tastes sweet, with some marzipan notes and maybe some cheap honey. No off flavours. Hides the alcohol well. Really surprising, again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL can, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very boozy, with lots of phenols and vegetal notes. Flavour is actually better, with sweet malt, some corn and phenols. Surprisingly not terrible. Tastes much better than it smells. Pretty decent for what it is. Obviously not good, but not disastrous.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light amber. Sweet. Candyish, in a way, with light alcohol in the finish. Could actually be worse, but this lacks the balance and style that the 10 has. But still, you can’t lie, this is still in that "almost drinkable" category.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
500 ml can picked up in Amman, Jordan. Pours a deep cloudly almost copper cloor with a fast to go fizzy head. Aroma is sweet candy, and some alcohol. Taste is is very weird, sweetness, alcohol, and cardboard. Palate is sticky sweet thick goo. Believe it or not not as bad as the 10% but still not good.
