1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a pale golden yellow appearance with a large white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Skunky pale lager aroma, even from a couple of feet away. Pale malty body thatís a little creamy with a lot of carbonation. Somewhat skunky flavor. Run of the mill, crappy international Pale Lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - labelís different but itís the same beer. Sweet grassy nose, some light noble hops in with the juicy pale malt sugar. Super pale yellow. Taste is lightly fizzy with medium bitterness and faint mineral water. Light body but not watery. A little dirt and a little grass, just a hint of cardboard. Surprised at how good this is!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, shared by Saxo. Itís a clear, almost golden beer wtih a small, white to off-white head. Grainy nose with dms and a faint fruity touch. The flavor has dms, grains and some fruits. Not much bitterness found. Thin, dry mouthfeel. A both boring and not very good beer. 100508

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grainy aroma, not super skunky, as many of these South American lagers can be. Medium hoppy for the style. Fairly clean. Not awful.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 I grabbed a bottle of Belikin from Plaza. It was pretty crisp, but not as thin on flavor as most pale lagers. It didnít have any of the same sour or skunk as the others either. Belikin is a pretty well-put together beer, all things considered.
