1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
.355 bottle procured by Rune and shared at Beer Session XX 210512. Nicely designed bottle. Clear golden body, small white head but no lacing. Metallic aroma of hay, alcohol and the less than well kept urinals often found in generic dive bars. Flavour of grain is somewhat better than aroma, though overly sweet. Very strong carbonation does not help overall impression either. Almost drinkable on a hot summer day,

Shitty beer night. Golden colour clear with thin scum of white head. Aroma is fairly neutral, Agitate it and out comes sweetish grain and corn, but not obverty offensive. Flavour is subdued and crisp, with some oxidised toffee stuff happening. Palate is gassy watery prickles the tongue. Biting carbonation in the finish which dried it out. Not completely unpleasant. At least it is a cuba tick.

Can 21.05.12 @Beer Session. Thanks for sharing, Rune! Yellow body, smells like urinal, hay and tin can. Quite bland, sunflower, corn and alcohol. It might be okay on a warm and sunny day in Cuba, but on a cold day in the end of May in Tromsø it’s not. The design is cool, though!

Can, from a friend, 11. 04. 2014. Body is clear pale with bubbly foam, high visible carbonation, head is gone after few seconds. Aroma is weak malty, clean. Taste has light sweetness, with almost no biterness, only some in the after-taste. Touch of high alcohols. Body is light, carbonation is high but quickly dissapears.

330ml bottle from Redmonds. Pale, clear yellow, big rocky white head from my vigorous pour. Not much nose, or flavour for that matter - struggling here, some inoffensive pale malt etc. Thin, watery body, no finish. You know the score, I only bought this to colour in Cuba on my ratebeer map.

Poured bright golen with a minimal white head. Aroma of sweet grain. Weak, watery body, flavour is sweet and cloying. Might be palatable if completely frozen.
