1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bought in France, brought back to Germany. Pours out in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of sweet malt. Taste of dull hops, brown sugar, caramel, sweet malt and light barley. Very sweet finish. Didn’t enjoy it because it was just too dull, boring, unrefreshing and unquaffable. Way below average.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
As expected this one is not a sniff better than the belarussian dortmunders where lot of different sugar or glucose syrups is poured in to make the beer drinkable. Aromas of caramel and its brother sugar are in the dominance from first to last. Absolutely artifical but still a bit drinkable. Below average - as expected - no surprise.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml swing top bottle, bought from an online shop while on holidays in Greece. Poured into a tulip, ABV 6%.
Light copper orange colour on the body, head a bit taller than one finger, white, thick and soapy with average retention and nice lacing left on the glass.
Aroma is flowery, clear malts, fresh grass. Interesting.
Taste is fruity, a bit of citrus at the end, sort of flowery on the background, kind of malty too. In general I would say it’s mildly sweet with a light acidic finish. Not bad.
Medium thin body, average carbonation. Slighty dry on the palate.
Overall, after I wasn’t expecting much from this one, but it turned out to be very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 50cl swing-top. Je suis agréablement surpris par cette bière blonde houblonnée. Je l’ai trouvé solide pour une bière aussi simple, mais la chaleur de plus de 30 degrés Celsius que Paris offrait au mois de juillet 2013. Une bière franche et rafraichissante avec des notes de houblons frais.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 0.65l bottle with flip cork. Bought at Bonarka (at the huge supermarked at the first floor) shopping mall in Krakow. Que? I don’t understand the low rating, but it can be because I’m used to terrible macrobeers from Norway. Rich, full taste of a great beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,33l bottle from some small shop in Paris. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma and flavor are mostly malts with a slight cider-y taste to it that isn’t quite welcome in a beer like this. Drinkable nevertheless.

Da non disdegnare come birra da bere senza cercarci chissà cosa. Malti e dolcezza, niente di piu

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Swing-top bottle. Pours clear bright gold with a frothy, lacy white head that quickly descends. Aroma of grass, flowers, toffee. Thin body, watery texture high carbonation. Tastes like carbonated water with a beer-like aftertaste. Probably a great choice with foods because it’s so polite and gets completely out of the way of any other tastes.
