Bottle. From african import/export Cph.
Not as bad as expected but still not very good! Frothy white good mostly deminishng head. Yellow colour. Very week but not ugly aroma. Almost no bitterness and very short finish. Very watery. What could you expect?

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear light golden ale that quickly becomes headless. Skunky nose with sweetish straw malt. Too thin to be bready really, yet hay-like. Very thin. Not metallic, but herbal and feeling like it’s been brewed and kept under the sun. Papery and bad.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from PeterA, thanks for bringing this!
Smells like the antelope enclosure at Copenhagen zoo. Rubber, chemicals, a rather nasty beer.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Small coarse white head. Very pale yellow body. Strong rubbery aroma with mealy notes. Dry mealy rubbery taste. Dry chemical aftertaste. Strong chemical corn and rubber taste lingers. Not just unpleasant; this tastes like it’s going to give you a bad headache. (0.63l bottle from PeterA, via KnutAlbert.)

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
630 ml bottle. Very pale golden. Medium-sized white head. Clear. Strong crisp malty aroma. Perhaps it is not malts, but it sure is bold. Citrusy hops. Feels very thin. Plastic-like aroma. Light-bodied. A little citrus. Sharp hop bitterness that does not blend with the light malts at all. High carbonation level. Surely refreshing in the sun, but there are a few rough edges that I’m sure will cause a head ache the day after.

Bottle. RBESG. Thanks to Jacob for this new country.
Straw colour. Metal and plug-hole in aroma. Lightly sweet with a nasty metallic, wastewater profile. No bitterness. Light bodied and pretty awful.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at RBESG 2007. Rubbery. Sh**ty premium lager. Can’t say anything more really, it is just pretty terrible with no real character.
