1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
35 cl bottle from Kvarterhusets Café. Pours a light golden, rapidly dissipating head. Smells weakly malty - like a standard-fare macrobrew lager. Taste a balanced and refreshing yet faint combination of hobs and malt. Stronger taste than standard Heineken and Carlsberg but not much more than that. Good in the carribean if nothing else is available I imagine.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
20/01 0.35 l can, courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing a new beercountry! It poured golden body with medium sized head. Malty, corny and slightly sourish aroma. Sweet honey flavor, sourish corny and also a bit dusty. Lighter body with shorter, boring corny finish. Nor refreshing nor pleasant, it’s pretty much useless, no matter there is nothing too much wrong here.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
My best colleague in the world brought me this beer from Cuba, on which I thank her very much (there Nina, I said it :p :D). Shared with heavy.
Poured a golden(ish) body witha small white head that went away fast. Pollen and light sweat in the otherwise light malty nose, maybe some corn too, light sour note. Bready taste, vaguely corny. Light herbal hop, light sour note. Ordinary, drinkable and correct macro lager that would probably be much appreciated in the Cuban heat, but doesn’t stand out from the crowd otherwise (except for the can design, which is very nice).

Bottle. Somewhat fruity and grainy aroma, cookies and a bit of grass. Nice deep gold color witha medium, flufy head. Sweet malty flavor, bready, some grass and light fruit. nothing special, but not so bad really. Refreshing and clean, though a bit too sweet for sure.
