1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale coloured body with a light white head. Aroma of stale malt and light lemons. Light-bodied; Skunky malt flavour with some cardboard tastes and a little light citrus flavour. Aftertaste has more of the same with a little bit of sweetness and some odd maltiness lingering behind. Overall, an alright beer - nice to try this tahian beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from ABC stores in Honolulu (Waikiki), Hawaii on 27-February-2007.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light almost fruity, dare I say, tropical aroma. The taste, however, is a significant disappointment. Dull hop bitterness, blah.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned(500ml). -from Geant Briancon. As much as I was happy when I spotted this beer on the shelf, that much I was disappointed when I tried it. But never mind, at least this was a beer from new country. Pale yellow coloured, small white head, grassy nose. Weak malty, faint hoppy and metallic. Dry bitter finish. New country, so two points more in overall.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can from Carrefour, Calais. Very pale gold with thick rocky white head. Bit of vomit and sickly lager aroma. But it is not a strong aroma. Not a strong flavour either. Some hoppy/lemony finish. There are some bubbles as well. It’s a nothing lager, no aroma, no flavour, no finish. How do you rate something that has nothing? This even made Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa seem interesting.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Budweiser from tahiti.
Sweet, highly carbonated, but a bit hoppier than expected.
Tastes better in Tahiti, I think, at least it’s cheaper there!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a brilliantly clear, yellow gold color. It is topped by an initially three-finger thick, frothy, pale off white colored head that actually leaves some lacing patterns on the side of my glass. The aroma is sweet and mild; a touch of herbal hops, hints of lemon grass, and a grassy grain-like character. There is certainly nothing wrong with the aroma, not what I look for in a beer, but certainly not noticeable flaws so far.
Served quite cold, this beer at first seems to leave no sensory notes as it crosses my palate. Definitely has a light grain malt sweetness, but it actually has quite a bite to it as well. The combination of carbonation and hop bitterness give this beer a, relatively, sharp biting character that starts out at its most intense as soon as the beer hits the mouth, but then mellows through to a lingering finish of light bitterness. A kiss of lightly herbal hop notes and a grassy grain note add a touch to the flavors found in this beer. This beer is far from bad, but certainly does not have that intensity of flavor I look for in a beer. It is actually quite easily quaffable, and I could see it hitting the spot on a really hot day. Not bad, I was expecting far worse but this beer is nice an clean.
