2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz Bottle: Pale yellow, lightly fizzy, some lacing. The nose is strong with husk, alcohol and sweet cheap malts and light floor grade hops. The flavor is either a bit more bitter than I expected, or just kinda zesty and acidic from the carbonation. I’m thinking the latter, but it almost comes across like a snappy pilsener. Finishes thin, watery, no biscuit or toast or any other yummy bavarian lager type goodies. A typical export lager sold as a cheap alternative to the big boys.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Mild flavor, not too distinctive. No after-taste. Hops not totally evident. A good party beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another in a seemingly endless line of export beers from this brewer.
Not too bad looking, just your typical euro-lager ,pale gold with a small pure white head, loads of carbonation.
For being in a green bottle the aroma is not skunked, just weak, grassy hop, and a scent of malt.
In taste its quite a malt based lager, but hops make a small weak appearance in the back of the tongue and in the fter taste.
Its pretty thin and a bit over carbonated for my palate.
Over all another Euro-lager, it aint bad but it is very far from good.
