2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
For a pale lager, this is pretty good. Very smooth flavor, aroma is light. Appearance is kind of flat and not much weight or lingering flavor in the palate. This would be a good summer time beer, lightweight, but tasty.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Warners at the Bay Bottle Shop. Very light and pale in he glass and very very clear. Has a crisp white head, not a lot of carbonation. Grain and wet straw in the aroma which is not that pleasant. The flavour is pretty basic and not that great either. All in all pretty disappointing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From the notes. Bottle. Pours gold (shocker!) thin head, aroma of maybe hops, taste of beer. Unremarkable. Stick to #9 and get blottoed.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle poured into glass. This was a gift from a friend who is Russian so I decided to give it a go. Nothing but water essentially. Flavorless and very blah.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden colour with steady head. Nose of hops. Taste of bitter hops made sweet, mild fruits, barley and leaves. Very easy to drink, but nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Very easy to go lager with a bit of malt in the background. Filtered to the end but still enjoyable. Not really tasteless and a nice refreshment if you just need a beer.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a light and crystal clear golden color with a fairly thick head. Nose is a bit skunky like most cheap lagers. Taste isn’t much better, but at least has some flavor. Meh.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
A rich gold beer that pours with the pride of Russia sold to a Danish holding company. Obnoxious 3 inch white head. Nice frothy appearance though. The smell is like corn and honey. The flavor is like cough medicine and used honeycomb cereal milk. Great job adding the maltose in there in hopes the kiddies and ladies would drink because we all know they love sweet things, right? Oh.
