33cl bottle with twist-off crown-top, Ven: 11 Jul 14, LT04B 15:47
Beer starts quite watery. Nothing more in the beginning. The mainpart is flat as well, a bit grainy, slightly sweet. The aftertaste is flat, short but not ugly.
Nice beer for a hot summers day, but in total a bit flat. --> 9/12/7/8

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pale yellow with foamy small white head, no specific aroma that I could detect, high carbonation, thin body with watery taste. Very generic beer, did not feel like 4% at all.

Bottle at home, courtesy of cunnigham, cheers Henrik!
extremely pale blonde, white lacing, initial vegetal cabbage nose thankfully dissipates to become cereal. Fairly sweet and flat, not much body and brief finish. Not the worst but not particularly good either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another lager on the menu.
Pours with a typical clear, golden color, and is topped with a medium white head of short retention. Also, quite bubbly.
There’s not much to say about the nose really, since it’s pretty weak with only faint grainy hops present.
The taste is similar. Not much there, light and feels watered down. The start is slightly sweet, while the finish does have a minimum amount of bitterness.
Very easy to drink, but not much to the taste really.

Colombiana. Muy chota. Comercial de bajo nível. Sabor fuera del padrón, pero para el lado errado. Fea.

Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is pretty papery. Little else. The taste is cardboard, paper. A bit of apple. Grain. Watery, plenty of carbonation. Overall, not good.
