bottle - not a whole lot going on here, sweet corn flavor with a light hint of alcohol, goes well with red beans and rice though.

330 ml can sampled@RBNAG 2009, Vatlandsvåg. Golden body with a diminishing white head. Light corn flavor, a bit sweet and noticeable bitterness. Thin body, no really off flavors but not many good flavors either.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Again, another lackluster pale lager. Colour is a light copper. Aroma is grain and corn with a slightly skunk. Taste is very thin on body and flavours are again grain, malt with a slight touch of caramel. Overall not that interesting.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled 0,33L. Compact head but rather escaping. Amber yellow color, slightly fraught with good bubbly aspcet. Light cereal and malty aromas, little other. Metallic taste, unbalanced, with a powerful alcoholic note on the end.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned@RBNAG 2009 in Vatlandsvåg. A layer of grey bubbles covering a pale gold colored body. An unfresh sweet scent from the adjuncts. Notes of vegetables and butter. Taste has a quite harsh sweetness. Mildly hopped, some straw/grass maybe, and a note of lemonade. Oily in the mouth. Short sweetish, faint bitter ending. Hard to appreciate.

0,35 l bottle called Cubanero Fuerte, 5,8% abv.
Clear golden body with a small but delicious white head. Sweet buttery malt in the aroma with sourish yeast and some minimal hop. Medium bodied one with an average lager flavor of sweet pale malt and some grassy hop in the finish. Easy drinkable one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Belgo-Cuban #1? 350ml bottle from Jumbo, Faro (Portugal). Pale and completely headless after two swigs. Not especially appetising aroma of coins, glue, grass and..jam? Yep, grass jam. Highly metallic and grassy with dabs of apple, aspirin and card. Thick and sweet with some hops and a little lemony fruit that makes the off notes bearable..almost. Weird one, but more hop presence than most of the local swill. Difficult, but I finished it.
