3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Countbeer at ‘Zieke Zuiden Tasting II’. Clear golden color, no head. Smell is ok but very standard. Taste is also like an ok pilsener, very straightforward. Decent, easy drinkable pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malty, bready taste with some biscuit and dough, not much hop character. Decent enough though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tried in Italy. Light color, easy flavor - nothing to make it special. A good drink to have with a calzone...

Nice, never liked the golden beers but this one was more acceptable. NIce taste and foam, good with Italian true food.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.66 l bottle from somewhere in Italy. It poured pale yellow body with medium sized head. Cheap flowery malty aroma. Flavor is not bad whatsoever, fine herbal with pleasant malty biscuit, notes of caramel as well. Medium to fuller in body, while finish was long, fine biscuity. This is supposed to be a premium lager, anyway, it’s much better than expected and a very decent macro brew.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Premium euro lager, slightly richer appearance and flavor. Crisp, quenching, but just a typical ’premium’ version of an already mediocre macro.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.66l bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!). Golden body, small white head. Oily sweetish, slightly flowery malty nose. Light soft honeyish taste, maybe light herbs, slightly dusty. Not bad, not great. Ends badly herbal. Eh.
