2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single 330 ml bottle from Sobeys Liquor’s seconds basket, served in a nonic pint. Pours a clear, gleaming golden yellow with widely-dispersed light carbonation (no single streams) and a pearly, short-lived, milky white head, leaving light rings of lace. The nose is a standard, cleanish lager, with mildly sweet cereals and whiffs of maltiness and grassy hops. Flavor is mild, and very much so for a 5.4% abv beer - there’s very little sweetness to its generally agreeable cereals profile. There also appears to be a tiny amount of alcohol heat present. Thin, slick, and finishes cleanly. Pretty good! I find that most Italian and Spanish beers have flavor quirks that turn me off, but I find none here. It’s no flavor bomb at all, but I’d be more than happy to have this around to quaff, whether or not I needed to avoid gluten. Thumbs up!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head, nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, slightly medicinal and yeasty. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, following is grassy with mild citrus, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty palatable, not bad at all...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Golden clear. Pale bulk malty, some spicyness, sort of earlgrayian notes. Med light, quite soft. Dull cream malty. Decent for a processed (gluten free) bulk lager though, was expecting a catastrophe.
