2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a stemmed glass at home. New country tick. ABV 4.7%
Golden yellow colour on the body with a small sized white head. Good density and good retention. Light lacing on the glass, non existent activity in it.
Light malty aroma, non offensive at all, mostly because is so faint. That is pretty much it, nothing else going on there.
Taste is also malty, with light grass. Sweet and it lacks the bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thin body and low carbonation, as expected.
Nothing notable with this one, is going down easily, good to flush a dinner down.

(Bottle, thanks Gnoff) Pours pale golden. Sweet sugary aroma with honey and marzipan. Only hints of hay and grass. Medium sweet flavour with some fudge and toffee. Hints of hops in the flavour as well. Light to medium body.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Now wonder they drink rum....oh never mind. #4 INOS, straight from Colombia from a co-worker. Almost water like in colour, I’ve never seen a beer this pale. No head at all. Incredibly strong across the table offensive aroma. Bay of Quinte after fishing derby aroma. Taste is not as bad as aroma suggests, but not good. I’m starting to turn green and shred some clothes at this point....

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Beer #4 in the line-up at The International Night Of Swill, and the first in the Columbian one-two punch provided by tupalev. Cute little 296 mL can with foil on top to give it some extra class. Colour is pale yellow with a greenish tinge. Aroma is vegetal and strangely fishy. Flavour is pretty much nothing, just fizzy water with a little metallic tinge. No wonder they all drink rum down there...

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Possibly a cereal lager, as his seems very sour and musty. Not much of a head to speak of and color is extremely pale. Aroma of wet paper, tastes like cardboard with sour palate. not very good...

Bottled 33cl. Nothing much to write home about. Grainy, metallic and reminiscent of boiled vegetables. Sampled a bit too warm.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I would not call this a classic anything, but classic imitation of crap. Does not go anywhere, in any of the categories that I rate, goes down really harsh, and really fast. Finish is sour and bland.
