1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl bottle. It is a light-bodied beer with a bit of sweet, touch of hop, and some medicinal sidetaste. Malt is rather maize than grain. Foam is OK, colour is pale. Its price is high for this.

Pours straw yellow with a decent white head.
Clean lawnmower brew, tastes like a regular pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaska från SB. Guldfärgad med stort vitt skum. Intagande dofter av lime, gräs, svagt vingummi. Mycket trevlig maltsötma i smaken. En väldigt godtagbar industrilager (förlåt, Specialty Grain).

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle marked 10/13. Nose sweet and grainy, definitely not barley or wheat. Pours ill golden with a very short white head. Taste is faintly crisp, grainy but with a touch of malt, not very clean, lightly sweet with faint bitterness. Perfumy flavor is horrid. It’s an industrial/macro lager, but at least it’s got that going for it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear gold pour, some white retention. Mild corn, hop, yeast notes. Pretty dry, thin body. The beer does not hold its flavor very well. Slightly better than a coors light.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Looks like a standard lager, maybe a little darker gold, head was small and died quickly. Aroma is sweet, a little floral, hint of skunky sweetness. T aste is pretty much the same. The sweetness isn’t quite right for barley malt, but it is not bad. Nothing too weird. Pretty average lager body. Overall, hard to tell apart from some of the big North American macros. Not quite sure what that says.

From a bottle poured a golden color with a small amount of head. Malty sweet flavor with a quick finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl Bottle (part of a four pack): BBD Sep 2013. Poured into a ’Veltins’ badged tulip on a sunny Shropshire Sunday during July 2013.
Usual lager/pilsner look and feel: golden and bright with a thin white covering of tight bubbles.
Semi-sweet malt nose with hints of floral hops as the beer warmed in the glass.
The taste was also semi-sweet malty, with a hop dryness towards the end of each sip. Nothing special but nothing wrong with it either.
OK, an average lager/pilsner with no ill effects by being ’gluten free’.
