1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(bottle - 330 ml) Pale gold pour with a light head and mild carbonation. Sweet corn aroma and not much else, pretty much the theme of the night thus far. Lightly bitter at the start. Slightly dry and metallic near the middle with a dry grass taste. Finishes dry and clean with a light metallic aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 330ml bottle, pours a light golden color and with a small white head. Very faint aroma of corn and possibly fruit. Taste is light sweet corn, with a hint of some fruit, crisp and refreshing. I think that this beer would be pleasant on a hot summer day with a couple of slices of lime.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, dated one year and three days ago. Not sure if bottled date or expiration date, but it hadn’t turned or gone skunky, so that’s something. Pale gold colour, light sweet aroma, almost floral or fruity. Very bland taste, some light sweetness, light corn, tiny bit of fruity tart. Watery body. Overall, beach beer.
