2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden, no head. Its lager aroma is close to the original but the taste is clearly lacking.

Bottle from Boars Head World Buffet; sand pour with white head, smells like cereal tastes like artificial sweetener, some lager characteristics.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Muggy, bready, corn aroma. Taste is monotonously sweet, corn flakes. Ugly.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very hoppy aroma gives way to a chemical like taste, not nice, but I was on dryathalon in January

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle at home - 02/09/12.
Having a beer free 10 days, so guess this doesn’t count. A pregnant friend brought it round earlier in the year when we had a curry and left it, I wouldn’t pay good momey just to tick a style!
Pale straw colour with a bubbly white head and lots of visible carbonation.
Smells very grainy, oats, a little caramel.
Tastes of aspartame, overly sweet, fake citrus flavours, plasticy.
Light bodied, not as much carbonation as the visual suggested, leaves me with a candarel taste on my lips!
Rancid - 5 sips was enough, the rest is being liberated to Thames Valley Water - thank you and good not!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is the first 0% I’ve ever had, although obviously I am not mad enough to have been the one who bought it. I was expecting a bland and water affair, something inoffensive, not abjectly unplesant. However, this was absolutely awful. Pours as you would expect, I was already put off by the sickly sweet vegetal aroma. Taste is sweet, very malty, rotting vegetables. I could not finish the bottle and it marks the first time I’ve had to pour away beer and have something else to take away the taste. The only positive I can take away is that it gave me a better grasp of the extremes of bad beer.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Probably one of the worst beers I have ever drunk. Weak head, sickly Weatabix aroma, thick cloying cereal sweetness. Not going to buy it again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Smells like light-bready malt extract. Good, this is going t be a malty style one rather than a hoppy pilsner style one, as those tend to be awful. Taste is basically the same, this is basically a malt drink. Clean, sweet and bready. Very drinkable, even at room temperature (it got served up before it had hit the fridge). Pretty much no negatives, I could drink this if I knew I had to remain sober.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Golden body, average head. Offputting aroma of glue and piss. Taste seems cleaner and even a bit malty but the aroma really destroys the overall impression. Poor.
