3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home in London (picked up in Stockholm). Pours a perfectly, ultra pale yellow with a surprisingly foamy, white head. Some dim cereal notes in the nose with light hay. Flavor is very lightly sweet with touches of doughy cereal, straw and metallic bite. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp but mostly flavorless on the finish, some more weak notes of doughy cereal and faint straw bitterness. There’s really nothing super wrong with this beer. It lacks any serious flavor, but its lack of character almost makes it a better pale lager than some of its peers. Whereas some pale lagers are too corny or syrupy or overly cardboardy, this one is just watery with subtle cereal and a nice, crisp bite. On a hot day or after a run, this makes for a very refreshing beverage.

12 oz can. BB 15/02/15. (ICA Maxi) Luleå, Sweden.
Clear pale yellow colour with a tiny white head.
Some sweet candy essence in the weak aroma.
The flavour is also very weak with some corny sweetness and malty notes. If normal Budweiser is tasteless this even more so. Waste of ingredients.

Lys brungul klar med høyt fluffy skum. Kornete, litt syrlg sitron i lukten. Svært lite smak i denne, en tanke søtlig smak er det eneste jeg kan få fram, medium kullsyre

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a can at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to ADNielsen for sharing, and blomster for providing. Pours clear pale golden with an average, but quickly receding white head. The nose is the same corny Bud that I am used to. The flavor is corny malt with just a hint of light bitterness. The body is very light with lively carbonation and a short corny finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can bought @ Hemköp Stigbergstorget. US rating #800. Woopdidoo! This one gets my blessing to try to save my evening after having been nearly poisoned by Pumking. Pours clear yellow with a rather big fizzy and frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. smell is soapy with crackers, canned corn, hay, lemon zest, mineral water and boiled cabbage. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and tiny herbal with crackers, white bread, aspartame, hay, soil, canned corn, boiled cabbage and compost. Mouthfeel is cloying, round and light bodied. Finish is almost pure canned corn with hints of hay, soil and buttered white bread. well, atleast it’s not Pumking...
