1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- courtesy of garthicus. Pours a clear pale gold with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma of straw, vegetables, some sugary sweetness and something else not so good. Awful flavour of straw, plastic and corn. Light bodied. Friggin’ awful!

Drank while Noize operated his Homer Talking Fridge Magnet.
Clear yellow colour, small white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Flavour is bitter, with grains and malts. Dry finish.
Homer would approve this beer, and so do I.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
My bottle, shared with Blankboy and HogTownHarry and opened with Harrys Homer opener. Appearance: Pale pale yellow, small white head. Aroma: Grass and plastic, yuck. Flavour: Grass again, Hay, plastic, butter. Hmm, if it wasn’t for the Simpsons connection I’d be less than impressed. I’m just happy to try it and I have some to trade!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (330ml). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Looks like watered down apple juice. Smells like Grolsch, or ass - is there a difference? - plastic and burnt corn and weeds. Tastes ... bland - watery, clover and apple cores. Watery, harsh, flat - well, at least it was cold. But thanks for the share, Al !

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled 33cl. Appearance: It pours a pale yellow beer with a decent nicely remaining creamy white head. Extremely lively carbonation. A huge amount of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Nice lacework. Aroma: Metallic nose with hints of boiled vegetables and corn. Sour, grainy with onion showing up. Very poor. Flavor and palate: Grainy, sweet and very watery. Hardly any bitterness. Metallic. Some onion sneaking in. Lemony. Light bodied. Boiled vegetables dominating in the finish. Overall impression: Overpriced and disgusting.
