1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a 500ml can. Pale yellow, slightly creamy head that dissipated reasonably quickly. Aroma is grainy with a hint of cooked cabbage, no hint of hops. Light bodied and crisp on the palate, with a subtle hint of bitterness on the finish. Very little flavour, perhaps a hint of corn. Kind of boring.

Bière blonde de 5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré et amer avec un petit col mousseux au versement. Elle possède un goût âcre et amer. Elle possède un goût de houblon restant en bouche. Elle possède un aspect céréalier possiblement de l’orge. Il y a une amertume prenante en finale, comme un goût de limette.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 mL can. Bright clear yellow-gold pour with a quickly dissipating but initially large pure white head. Mild grainy nose with some sweet malts. Taste is about the same, but with a bit of metallic tinge and novocaine-like qualities. Not a good beer.
