2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bios 5) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a shaker glass, ABV 5%
"Fancy" bottle while it openly advertises the use of corn and rice, like it’s a good thing. Anyway, it pours a deep golden yellow coloured beer, with a small and thin white head, collapsing fast. Aroma of has lots of malts, some grass, with the rice being notable.
There is a nice bitter taste and some hops though, not a long lasting one but it’s there. Finishes sweet with unfermented grains and sugars, thankfully the corn is not notable, the rice yes but not as on the aroma.
Medium thin body, high carbonation.

Pale and smooth beginning. Lots of grain. Grainy-sweetish mainpart, not too deep, a bit unround, not much bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wässriger, zunehmend getreidiger Beginn und Mittelteil. Abgesehen davon wenig aromatisch, wenig malzig, kein Hopfen. Spritzig, auch zum Ende hin getreidig. Monoton, dennoch gut trinkbar. 8/6/7/8/8/7

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Quite typical warm weather beer. I remember it being quite fizzy, but the head didnt have much staying power. Bit sweet, not much in the way of bitterness and with a dry mouthfeel. I thought it was dull, and I was sad reading that it contains rice and corn (maiz), something I would hope European beer makers would refrain from.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Syrlig duft sammen med humle. Fin gyllen farge. Dekkende hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. Noe søtlig smak.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear golden color with minimal head.
Almost no aroma, just some faint adjunct smell.
Taste is also very faint. Just the specific adjunct lager taste.
Mouthfeel is decent. Light body and medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty bland adjunct lager, nothing special here.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Paleish gold with loose head.
Lager aroma with some sweet malts. (4+)
Tastes boring and pale, but at least it’s not too fizzy.
Not exceptional. Does have a bit of hopping. Maybe a little paper
Unusually, Phil did not share this.
