2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can ( 500ml ). Kinda gay-lookin’ can. Why is this swill "Premium?" Pale gold, large lasting fluffy sticky white head. Boring aroma - dry straw, honey, hint of plastic. Taste is watery and stale - paper, plastic and dead weeds - wishy-washy mouthfeel, dry, flat, harsh - ...................... tick.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with decent-sized white head; some lacing. Aroma of straw and corn. Grain and corn primarily for the flavour with some light hops in the finish. Mediocre.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: Poured a golden color lager with a medium bubbly head with actually good retention and some lacing. Aroma of adjunct and light cereal is pretty average. Taste is a mix between some adjunct and limited hops presence with a somewhat nice cereal presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Below par overall and I have to wonder why somebody at the LCBO thought it would be a good idea to import this.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
500 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a Scotch Irish taster glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a fair white head.
Aroma: Messy corn/grain/cereal, a fair hit of dusty cardboard, musty, toasted cereal (like puffed wheat), not really much else.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Flav.: Tired, stale, cardboard, cereal, dusty, grain, devoid of anything interesting; dry with a touch of bitterness, light, watery malt finish.
I guess like Canada or the US, you have to expect Belgium to produce some shit. This is some shit.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Vile excuse for a so called Euro beer. It tastes as if someone made a bad, watery beer and added alcohol to comply with the label. This is a ’paint by numbers’ liquid. I should have read the label more carefully.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl can bought on Mill Road, Cambridge. Amber with a dense, loose, off-white head; unimpressive aroma of corn and stewed vegetables; very watery with a grainy flavour and a little sugar; before a blotting paper dry finish. This is enough to give Eurolagers a bad name. The ingredients list says it all :- Water, Barley Malt, UNMALTED CEREALS; Hops; HOP EXTRACT.
