2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle at home. Nice pop from the ring-pull. Pours clear golden yellow, small white head. Aromas are a bit on the cardboard side of things, with corn and cereal. Faintest whisper of hops, sweet on the taste. Not much going on, but not entirely unpleasant.
