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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Many thanks to kevnic2008 for sharing. Golden colour with a grainy-malty nose. The beer starts neutral-grainy, malty-sweetish and a bit more intense than the "Balashi Chill". Malty-grain is dominating the quite watery picture with hints of a malty sweetness. Easy drinkable and very refreshing. Nearly no bitterness in the end. Nice for what it wants to be.

Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation.
Another wretched tropical lager.

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.
