1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
25cl bottle, thanks Tderoeck for the share.
Dorée, col blanc.
Arôme garde ce sale bouquet métallique de malt avec un houblon qui se glisse difficilement.
Palais est typique du style, dans ce cas ci, très médiocre en comparaison de la version ’chill’ nettement plus rafraichissante. Malt pils/pâle avec un houblon quasi imperceptible et ce fini horrible de maïs.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
14/IV/2012 - 22cl bottle @ home - BB: 2/V/12 (2012-354) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!
Clear light orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: nasty, rotten hay, pretty skanky, corn syrup. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: some citrus, bit hoppy, grains, hay. Aftertaste: slightly bitter, corn sweetness. Terrible, even when chilled in the freezer. Nothing hides the terrible aroma.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2012-02-26. Crisp dark yellow body, small fast fading white head. Mild aroma, lightly grainy cereally character. Flavour is similar, mild cereally grainy character to the malt, light bitterness but a sweet overall impression. Average body. Inoffensive but not particularly appealing either. Can from Blankboy

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can [333ml]. Pours a clear, quite bubbly pale gold with a large diminishing white head. Aroma is sweet and lightly vegetal along with very light grassy hops, grain and hay -- not offensive. Flavour’s better then I expected (though I was expecting the worst) though quite mediocre. Somewhat watery, sweet and corny along with light grassy hops, honey and fruit. Light bodied. I’ve had so many much worse beers then this and though it’s not my thing, it would be easy to drink on a warm day in the right place.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden yellow with some bubbles and small head. Aroma is minimal. Light body. Crisp and sort of refreshing, the slightest amount of bitterness and brief off-dry finish. Unobjectionable, but I would move along folks, because there’s nothing to see here.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
333ml can courtesy of blankboy - thanks, guy!! Clear pale gold, large lasting bright white waxy head. Sweet aroma, clover and garden hose. Taste follows, even sweeter, little harsh. Light body, sweet, decent carbonation .... on a beach, I wouldn’t spurn this.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Blankboy. My 1st ever beer from Aruba (and by the looks of it, the only one available there) Appearance: quite light orange, vigorous carbonation, medium white head. Aroma: Mildly hoppy, a little hay and cardboard, tiny amount of fruit. Flavour: Mildly grassy, a hint of hops & fruit, not a lot else really, not bad, can certainly imagine drinking it in a nice sunny atmosphere.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, thank you Blankboy! Clear yellow, small white head. Aroma is mild bit clean, faint light hops. Taste is also very clean - light body, foamy mouthfeel, some light dusty hops present. Better than what I was expecting, I could drink a few of these in the right setting.
