2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can bought at 759 Store in Sheung Shui Centre.
Piss pale dull golden colour; Very thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Light pungent smell of malt, with faint floral, dough, bread, and very light lemony grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with faint syrup, very light wet cardboard, dough, light bread, very light lemon and faint grass; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is standard Euro macro. Light body with appropriate thin maltyness, sweetness is barely detectable, some wet paper but not a bugger. Quite doughty and bready, plus some faint light hops. Okay… Hoppiness is very light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Minimal bitterness for an lightly malty finish; Fairly dry after taste, wery easy to mouth.
Comments: This one may be standard, un-fanciful everyman’s Euro macro, but in all honesty, the smell is okay with bits of neat floral, taste is pretty clean with light malt and thin hops, and as a going down-easy crowd pleaser, it serves it purpose well enough. I have no complain and it’s okay with me. A good companion for watching football matches.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks like pale Dutch lager. Smells like pale Dutch lager only paler. Tastes like ambrosia from the Gods... of Dutch lager... only without any ambrosia. Completely unremarkable.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly malty aroma from this yellow almost clear beer with no head. A bitter medium light bodied club soda with a bit of grainy flavor. Not a horrible lager but coulda been a bit better
