3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (640ml), Export version:
Yeasty & skunky with some grain & citrus hops. Averager, not much of note in the aroma.
Clear straw with large foamy head that sinks to a finger sized whtie one.
Sweet with the flavour being made up of mostly corn & other adjuncts. A grassy hops taste & a bit of honey.
Really thin bodied & very smooth, almost watery. The carbonation is quite high as well but overall it’s not bad on the palate & it is easy enough to drink.
An excellent session beer. Not as good as the domestic version but a solid beer none the less.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bland international adjunct lager here. Pours clear golden with a fleeting white head. Adjunct ridden aroma and flavor is the name of the game. Finishes cleanly with some grassy flavoring hops. Awe dang poor shitae beir flavor.

Cerveza medio pelo, da para tomar tranqui, muy refrescante y con mucha efervecencia. Agarrate la cabeza al otro día.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Really not so good. Kind of off tasting. Clear and crisp, but not really good on the aroma or taste.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB in late July 2011. Colour: Light gold and yellow with minimal white head. Nose: Stale bread, malt vinegar, dirt. Not appealing. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Immediate touch of pear and apricot....so promising, and then a wave of sour barley mash rushes over. Cheap sweetness is present. Quite distasteful.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Drank in Thailand-- this stuff is basically made out of 100% pure hangover. Tastes like chemicals going down, even worse coming up. You’re better off puking this stuff up before you fall asleep, as the hangover produced by this stuff is unreal. The only reason to drink this is if you’ve got a gun to your head being forced to sleep with a katoey.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle, Bird Restaurant, Amsterdam, 15 July 2011) Pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, sweet nose with notes of grain, sugar and vegetables. Malty, grainy taste with bread, cereal and hay. Thin body, sweet, hardly any bitterness. Watery and boring.
