1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Eurolager. Carbonated, without taste brew. Pours golden and has too much carbonation, hence a lot of head which goes away quickly. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden straw with heavy carbonation. Bread, hay refreshing in South African summer but watery and nothing special. Consumed in large volumes in this country and it is definitly quantity rather than quality with this one.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Radisson Blu Waterfront, Cape Town. Probably the best ’lager’ I had during a recent trip to SA. Which doesn’t say a great deal about the others.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Whipped eggwhite-like head, rather huge but fast receding over metallic golden beer. Faintly hoppy, bit grassy, strawaroma. Watery grainy to malty flavour. Finish bereft of any real flavour, but some bitterness (tad metallic) keeps hanging around, God knows from where. Spritzy. Empty. Bweuk. Txs to the bringers!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: Corn, light hops, slight citrus.
Appearance: Clear, pale yellow,, a few bubbles, very little head.
Taste: Medium light bitterness, medium malt. Slight tin. citrus. very light hops.
Palate:Medium high effervescence, slight carbonic bite, medium light bodied.
Overall: This used to me one of my favorite beers! It is an enjoyable beer and a good session beer. With new tastes and knowledge, it is not the best beer. It as too much or too little. I will still drink this, depending on the situation.
