2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This clear yellow beer poured with a decent white head and a floral aroma. It’s a refreshing lager that has very little taste aside from a bit of malt sweetness and some vague hop bitterness.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 ounce bottle from daknole. Thanks! Pours a very pale amber color with a large head. Fair head retention and poor lacing. Aroma is very weak and shows notes of sweet graininess. Taste is grain, wheat, sweet sugary notes, banana candy and very weak grassy hop notes. Watery and thin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear watery pale gold with minute long off white head. The aroma is a combination of grains, sweet malts and sweet floral hops creating a modest corn note with a hint of spicy hops and yeast in the background. The flavor has a modest floral to spice hop bite enhanced by the level of carbonation. To midway it becomes grainy and sugary malty sweet. This has a nice level of hop bitterness into the finish fighting off the typical insane sweetness of most in this style.

Bottle. Light straw, with a large, tight, white head. The aroma is very heavy with raw grain. Creamy and light, with a raw grain flavor. Finishes a bit sour.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks Daknole. Adding a new country. Golden with a lot of carbonation and a smallish white head that is sustained by that carbonation. Aroma is Saaz like which I always find unpleasant. Flavor is grainy and somewhat buttery. Faint malt and some corn. It is also sour (not tart) and dry. Fizzy feel. Finish was watery with less flavor. I had no expectations for this one and was pretty much correct.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Colombia rating. Had this at La Hacienda Colombian restaurant in Orlando. From the bottle poured a piss-yellow, crystal clear body with a fizzy, disappearing white head. No lace. The aroma is of watered down, skunked corn syrup and stale grain. Flavors were equally appalling, with virtually no redeeming qualities to be found. Thin, watery body. Probably best suited as a water substitute for thirsty foreigners.
