2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a weird clear yellow orange gold with a healthy white head The nose is sweet, very very sweet. Sweet like corn, reminiscent of High Life. A little bit of spice... maybe skunked light hops? Maybe some apples... weird. The mouth is as thin as this beer looks, moderate CO2, not a lot going on. The flavors are about in line with everything else. Sweet and lacking substances. Theres some spice, like I said about the nose, but its mostly dead hops I think. Cloying sweetness lingers. I just dont like this one. Despite the sweet spot I have for High Life, I just dont like this beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 750 ml in Paris, 2006.
Medium blonde color. Thick, fine head.
Malt and yeast aroma. A touch sweet.
Sweet, malty flavor at first. Strongish. Moves more to a bitter hops finish. Good fruitiness, citrus. Apples. Lingering malt sweetness with hop bitterness, long-lasting. Slightly sour.
Not terribly complex, but very nice, dry, flavorful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A white beer that has a little more golden color than the usual yellow. Has the typical citrus aroma with mild hops. Taste has a little bit more hops than other white beers, but besides that, there’s not much difference.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. I guess it’s not aged that long. Clear amber, only slightly darker than a pale lager, with a thick, white head. Malt aroma, with some rich caramel and roasted notes. Sweet, heavy and full body. Finishes a bit sweet and long. But, a distinct style I’ve not explored before.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl Bottle @ home. Beautiful golden/copper orange colour, fluffy white head. Aroma of hops, grain, esters and some cardboard. Flavour is grainy, slightly hoppy, a bit pale lager/malt liquor like, metallic. Alcoholic and slightly bitter finish. A bit thin. Not very impressive.
