1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml can. LT09. BB 12/Feb/13. From Colombia. ¡Muchas gracias Roberto!
Clear pale golden colour with a small white head.
Quite crisp grassy hoppy and grainy malty aroma. But the flavour is stale malty with some candy sweetness and straw. This beer defines the Colombian way of life? Boring? Hmm... Not what I have heard about the life in Colombia.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
269cl can bought in Cartagena (Colombia) and opened on 1st Feb 2013 while off the coast of Mexico.
Tasted cheap, which it wasn’t: I got stung by a young lad in a dark shed for a bottle of water and this can for $10.00, the little shit. I suppose he and his family needed the money more than me though.
To be fair it looked fine: your usual lager/pilsner golden clear and bright body with a fading head of white.
Sadly it then began to fail: seaweed and metallic in the nose and mouth, dry and boring feel to the whole thing. My Colombian box is now ticked.

Pours a very light pale yellow color. White head. Smells like skunk. Not much flavor. Maybe some hops in there somewhere

16-MAR-2013, bottle @home, shared with Morten, from Systembolaget, brought home by Marianne.
Pale yellow with low white head.
Bitter hay’ish aroma. Taste is bitter, hay, corn.
Thin body. Not overly sweet like some. Crisp, light and probably works fine in a Comlombian climate:-)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden. Small head. Smells grassy with notes of butter and citrus. Taste is thin and watery with notes of paper and grass. Dry finish. Might work ice cold, straight out of the bottle on a hot summer’s day.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 33cl - Clear white yellow beer with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of corn, hay and slight metallic hop notes. Flavor is malty with notes of corn, dough, hay and vegetables. Sweet and unbalanced beer, but I can see this being very popular amongst non beer drinkers who prefer no bitterness whatsoever.

330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with small to average, frothy to macropore, diminishing, white head. Grainy and corny aroma. Taste is almost neutral, subtle sweetness, a touch of straw, not far from water.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Øhandleriet, Oslo. Brilliant pale gold. Fully fading white top. Sweet wort and cereals on the nose. No hops detected. Lightly sweet bready, or cakey, malt base. Barely noticable bittering hops. Light body. Watered down mouthfeel. Drinkable, but far from interesting.
