1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle share thanks to Leighton for this wonder of brewing science. Aroma is sweet wort, musty, stale malt, wet sileage. Flavour is sweet stale malt, worty, unfermented, sweetcorn, Clear yellow persistent white head. Sugary stale flabby palate. Bad stuff. Not even a beer.

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.

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.
