1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 Can (500ml). All-swill minitasting #2 - after the horrific Bavaria 8.6, can this really be worse? Very pale gold, ugly large fizzy white quick-dropping head - looks just like the Bavaria. Unpleasant dry grainy/rice alcohol harsh aroma, but at least itís GRAINy - just poor, not ugly. Tastes just like it smells - cheap grain, dead UK hops, way too much booze - and the booze doesnít go away ... I wish the whole thing would go away, nasty aftertaste. Watery, lively yet mostly dead mouthfeel, primary charcter is cheap booze, slightly sticky - an ugly beer for getting you legless quick - but thereís a real beer underneath the forced booze; not a good one, but itís beer.

Tap, Excalibur, Girona, Spain. Clear yellow color, short head. Aroma is grainy, some hops. Bit malty and grainy taste. I didnít expect it to be rated this bad actually. Maybe, because it was from tap that itís much better?
