2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold with a bit more life in the color than the Tuborg I had just prior. The head is fuzzy and dry looking, and lasts for a bit. The flavor is definitely on the adjuncty side, but not offensive. The flavor is soft, a good bit of rice, but not in a foul way. Very low bitterness and very low hop aroma. Very soft on the palate.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Amber beer with small head, small aroma and small flavor. A thin, watery, beverage without character or substance.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with a decent, white head that lingered for some time. Aroma was all black with a white stripe. Starts malty and finishes with a pronounced bitterness, but not realy a good bitterness. Very crisp and fizzy, if you like that.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours yellow with thin non-lacing head. Nose is floral and acetone. Sweetish malts and mild bitter aftertaste, but also an unpleasant plasticky mouthfeel. Not good and I wonít buy again.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pretty undistinguishable. A slight bit ahead of the US macros - but saying youíre better than Bud doesnít say much. At least itís not as skunky as Heineken.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(my bottle - identical label as illustrated - claims 5% ABV) Clear gold; thick and fluffy yellow head, fed by heavy carbonation, but not very stable. Very grainy nose, and the same time sulphuric - and meant is H≤S! This is "skunked", as you Americans call it, big time. Boring, light-sweet pilsener, some maize/corn. And if "hops can easily be distinguished" it must be by their utter absence. Watery texture, with a nearly slimy mouthfeel. Once gotten over the rotten eggs nose, this is "easily drinkable"? If you forget your retronasal perception, perhaps - with a good thorough cold?
