330 ml can bought at Great Food Hall at Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Piss dull pale golden colour; One-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Good sticky lacing with active slight carbonation; Sweet aroma of moderate malt, with very light wet cardboard, grains, syrup, very light floral and very light lemon; Close to light sweet taste of light malt, with faint floral, sugar notes, thin lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Close to light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is light malt in thin watery background. No obvious grains or other off-taste. Some faint floral, Sweetness is actually a lot lighter than most macro Pales. Thin lemon end in a whisper. Easy but very so so… Hoppiness is faint floral and thin lemon in nose and taste; Bitterness is very light and barely tastable, essentially thin lemon finish; Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: Slightly papery and syrupy aroma aside, this one is surprisingly drinkable given the inclusion of glucose syrup to jack up the abv. It’s very light sweet by macro standard, plus slightly better body. Lack of hops is a downer, but this is no drain pours. Cheap but easy to down.

Foam poor and almost entirely without carbonation appears the flat and uninviting in the glass. In fact, here I recommend that you drink it straight from the bottle, if you have to drink it. So you avoid at least to look at its surface expression and simultaneously limit to the synthetic aroma of something that should have been buried long time ago. It is very anonymous and tastes disgusting glucose syrup. Indeed, so repulsive that I pour 3/4 of that splashes down where it rightfully belongs, namely in the kitchen sink. While I am left with a horrible taste in my mouth, and I send my deepest condolences to the employees of Harboes, which must tasted and quality ensure this product. The job must then be really well paid for it is hardly the joy of the work that is motivation.

330 ml can. BB 09/03/2016. Thanks (?)Tommi! Clear golden color with a tiny white head. Sweet caramel, alcohol and malt in the aroma. The flavor is alcohol, mild bitterness (from alcohol) and sweet malt. Yuck! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden beer pouring with lots of tiny bubbles and a white head. The aroma is savory with a little pepper. Very smooth palate. Tastes of light hay and earthy malt with a tingy, bitter finish.
