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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 350 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Golden beer, without foam, with a small sparkling with big bubbles. Malt flavors, toffy, alcohol feeling in spite of the low rates. The taste is soft, brown sugar, corn syrup and grain. A bit heavy, lack of pep, in spite of the prickle on the tongue. End short and slight bitter. A good example of lager of warm country.
