1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. As expected, it pours a pale golden body, clear, with a small white head. Grainy, grassy, slightly artificial aroma. The flavor is grainy with pale malt and some flowery and fruity note. Thin body. Grainy finish. Not foul, but there’s not really much interesting to say about this beer. (080216)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shiny white head, pale golden color. Fresh, semi-dry aroma of grain/malt. A scent of lemonade and hay. Taste is medium sweet with a quite crisp maltiness. Notes of sharpish hops and chemicals. Lively mouthfeel. Thin-bodied with a short, dryish end. Far better than expected...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, thanks to PeterA.
Rubber aroma, some sweetness, but definitely a beer for rubber fetichists. Malt and hops are in there, too, but this is not very well brewed.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Medium white head, mostly consisting of large bubbles. Pale yellow body. Strong rubbery aroma with intense rubbery notes over a rubbery background; mixed in are notes of bicycle tyres and tractor wheels. Intense chalky rubbery taste with strong chemical notes and a corn background. Settles into a dryish chalky rubbery aftertaste. Unpleasant; tastes like the chemicals will do you no good. (0.33l bottle from PeterA, via KnutAlbert.)

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 ml bottle. Pale golden. Slightly hazy. Sharp plastic-like citrusy aroma. Light crisp malts. Powdery. Synthetic flavours with a little citrus and rubber. Somewhat acidic. Fairly complex flavours, but it is for the most part very odd and awfully artificial. I suspect there to be a high percentage of non-barley in there. High bitterness towards the finish. Finishes dry.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled@Monks Café, Stockholm. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy/bubbly head. Aroma is grassy malts along with some hayish hops. Flavour is surprisingly malty and hoppy with slight cooked vegetables. Not very disturbing for being a "tropical lager". Actually quite clean and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Chemical aroma, even thought it lists all natural ingredients. Very pale yellow color, with a medium white head that didn’t last terribly long. The flavor was mild and sweet, good for a warm afternoon in Senegal. The mouthfeel was light, with none of the expected stickiness from the sweetness.
