1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This stuff is pretty foul overall. One of the cheapest lagers found in any corner store in Ireland. Pours a light golden with a fizzy white head turns into nothing. Skunky and metalic hops , slightly herbal and earthy. Flavor is bland and lifeless with some wet cardboard, stale crackery malt, and some more stale hops in the end to skunk it up more and ruin the palate. Gross.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a green, eight-ounce bottle purchased on clearance at "liquor Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - This one pours a pale yellow with a full white head of foam and almost no odor. Tastewise... finally, a beer that can outbland Heiniken!
Itíll not be a reapest buy!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle yellow with a fluffy white head that left minimal lacing. Aroma was grassy hops and corn. Flavor was hoppy with a touch of sweet malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. It was a crisp and refreshing brew, best is ice cold on a hot summer day. They just seam to disappear.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale straw coloured hue with good carbonation and a fluffy head. Well hopped corn and malt taste with faint citrus flavour. Not too bad. (500ml can)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours pale to golden yellow with a sparkly effervescence. Quite highly carbonated but not sharp on the tongue. Head is white and long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma of bread and hops. Nice malt and hop balance throughout, with as much or more body than most lagers sold in this country. Definitely better than ití fellow Dutch lagers Heineken or Grolsch commonly found here. Priced the same as the common macro lagers ie: Canadian, Blue etc so I think I will grab this one next time instead.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well, nothing horrible here and nothing fantastic either. This beer really can swing either way depending on how it was stored. Luckily, I seemed to have gotten a decent bottle because it was quite enjoyable and quite drinkable. I think itís on the same page as a Tuborg (not quite as tasty) and much better the Heineken, Grolsch, Oranjeboom or other lagers from that region. Aroma was a bit malty with lots of rice coming thru. Appearance was a clear golden with a nice white head. Mouthfeel was a little harsh with average amounts of carbonation and a bit on the thin side. Flavor was grassy, malty, a bit sweet, quite crisp and quite refreshing! If I was throwing a party and wanted to maximize my dollar/beer/quality ratio then this really would do nicely!

Light bitter, herbal aroma. Pale golden color. Quite ok pilsener. Light spicy, bitter pilsener. A bit sourly, not very impressive all in all.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz green bottle. a party leftover...I was told this was purchased because it was even cheaper than PBR cans! The pour is about the same as the PBR...less head and less lace though...maybe just a shade deeper color. Aroma is not nearly as offensive as the PBR...mainly because I canít really smell anything! Maybe just this very faint hop presence...very faint. Faintly hopped and a touch of malt shows up...the finish is better than the PBR...I donít get that grossly sweet corn lingering...it does finish crisp and quick. Not bitter though...there is still some sweetness, but it tastes like malt rather than corn or something worse...Maybe good for a quick quencher, but not much to get excited about here.
