Old rate, had it around christmas time. Slightly skunky, mild herbal notes, too expensive for what it is.

Surprisingly good for a lager. Fresh even with slightly higher alcohol than rest of the lagers. Not too bitter, bright golden color.

330ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow. Quite carbonated, small head. Surrenders (pun intended) carbonation quickly. Tastes quite hoppy but a stale after tatse

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy golden color with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is a little musty but overall nondescript. Flavor is like a musty Budweiser or other American lager. Vague notes of toffee malt in the finish, leaves a distinctly unpleasant aftertaste. Not crazy about this at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml can. Clear pale golden body with a white head. A bit weak in aroma, mild malt and slightly spicy/fruity yeast. Flavor is soft, light and sweet malty, fruity, spicy and refreshing. Noting really exiting but a decent thirst quencher.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dieses Jenlain aus der Dose wird durch einen starken Mango Geschmack geprägt der bis in den Nachgeschmack anhält dort wird er allerdings milder. Ansonsten ist es etwas malzig, etwas plumpig durch Mangoaroma. Fazit: Interessant, aber nicht so gut wie die anderen Jenlains, nicht mein Favorit!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An ordinary pale lager, clear gold color. Simple corn/malt flavor. Not offensive in any way and very drinkable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought a pack of these from a French Hypamarket: 25cl throw away green bottles, just for drinking in the kitchen while cooking and stuff over Christmas, saved one to review at leasure (Jan 2012).
They were great just for ’out the neck’ quaffing in the hot surrounds of the cooker but didn’t really notice the taste etc, I just ’necked’ them.
This bottle however will get some respect: poured into an ’Augustijn’ labelled chalice.
It looked like your typical European lager/pilsner. Light golden body, bright, clean and clear, on top the usual white head that refuses to hang around.
The smell was slightly metallic with hints of a hop (yes, you read that correctly, a hop).
The beer is supposed to be filtered, and lagered but unpasteurised. So it’s a lager then!
The regular lager/pilsner body depth is almost reached, but this is a bit thinner and weaker really, the 6% ABV isn’t hidden too well and the flavours are not strong either:it’s a cheap supermarket lager in all aspects.
Strange how I enjoyed just drinking this beer a lot more than I have dissecting and reviewing it. The beer had a chance to warm up a bit too as I wrote this review, you don’t want to drink this unless it is cold, trust me!
