3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1) Approximately 50x chilled 275ml bottles over the fesitve period, plus a few glasses on draught- @Pisces, for example. Clean and..well,crisp with a pale lemoniness, light toasted cereal and honey notes, hop bitterness but not flavour. Cooked veg, light honeyed herbal hop, aluminium on the nose. Noticeably more clean and herbal on draught, with Noble hop hints. Hugely superior to many of its Mediterranean counterparts, and I’m not just saying that because I’m pissed, deliriously happy and in Barbados for Christmas. Hits the spot for Englishman and mad dogs in the midday sun. 535310.
2) Chilled from the bottle, outdoors/indoors at Grantley Adams International. Crackery malt, light lemoniness, cashew hints in aftertaste. Tweak of piney hop. Some custard cream/egg custard. No adjuncts. Superior global lager, warranting more than half marks.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Clean with some corn, wheat, and grain notes. Easy drinking. Not complex, but a definitely a nice light pilsner for chillin’ at the beach.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flaska. Guldfärgad med stor vit krona. Gräs och malt i både smak och doft. Sötma i eftersmaken. En standardlager, om än lättdrucken och inte särskilt dum i Barbados-värmen.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Simple, very simple Lager with low aroma but a high drinkability and a slightly sweetish finish. Could have been worse I guess.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden colour with steady low ehad and thin body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, light wheat, straw, mild apples and grains. Watery finish but easy drinkable. Nothing special but not that bad.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear golden beer without any head on top. Aroma is absolutely nothing but a very faint hint of grains. Very watery palate, no taste whatsoever going on here. Very boring, watery lager, that’s it.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 33 cl.
Pale yellow with absent head. Almost no aroma, just the usual cardboard, citrus and vague malty touches. Tastes the same, with a touch of water. Better than one would expect, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Pale gold with a fizzy thin head. Smells of sugar water and sweet honey. Thin light body. Little to no taste at all.
