1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cheap supermarket lager, in this case for Carrefour, brewed at Bavaria. From a rather dull 50 cl can. Moussy, regular, ’dirty’ white head of medium size sitting on top of a cristal clear, pure golden blonde beer with fierce sparkling. Aroma of sugar corn, damp cloth, iron, sugarloaf, faint hints of industrial apple juice, sweaty grains, banana candy and melting plastic. Spritzy onset as expected, somewhat souring carbonation, sweet graininess, corn slickness, lightly oily but otherwise thin mouthfeel, clearly metallic with a thin, watery, neutral finish only showing a brief, elusive floral hop bitter accent. Boring, corn-like, insufficiently hopped, grainy and metallic ’macro lager’, as expected, and like there are countless other ones in Europe alone.

On 50 cl can from Carrefour in Collioure. Clear golden color, good foam. Low aroma intensity; some fruitiness, more cardboard, a little citrus and a small hop note in the end. Light body & complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Ok enough

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl can from Carrefour Express in Firenze. Pours clear pale golden with a fast dissipating, small, white head. Quite the usual pale industrial lager - somewhat grainy aroma with notes of cooked vegetables, hints of honey, ripe fruits and hops too. Sweet, grainy and watery with mild flavours and a very mild bitterness. Drinkable if not much other options, but would not like to try it again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Carrefour, Nice. Pale gold, no head. Not as weak as British supermarket lagers which is my only comparison, but it’s strength does give it a fairly decent mouthfeel, but otherwise it’s very bland.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Light golden with small white head. Light grains with some light herbal touches of hay and straw. Very light hops. Quite crappy cheap lager, the best thing about it is that it barely has any taste, but there's nothing offensive either.
