1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
33 cl. bottle sampled thx! to Kraddel. Clear darker amber, small off-white head. Smells of pale grains, sticky, metallic syrup, reminds me a bit of a pale lager but way thicker, way sweeter. Taste is same grains, very sugary, sweeteners, nasty artificial bitterness, metals, lingering bitter medicinal herbs,... Thick body, lots of chemicals, tastes like a mix between a medicinal drink and a pale lager. Not enjoyable for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, darker golden beer with a creamy, off white head on top without any lacing on the glas. Aroma is grainy and a bit skunky, but not disturbing. Also touches of caramel when it warms up. Flavour is moderately sweet with a firm, lager-ish backone. Alcohol is detected, but not overwhelming. Overall just an average beer, easy drinkable and nothing special.
