2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Bright light-yellow appearance; ephemeral head. Invigorating aroma of fresh-cut grass brings a touch of summertime to these dour Canadian winter days. Refreshing palate and standard malt/hop body pleases, though this is admittedly just your standard world lager. Meets expectations... nothing more, nothing less.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
640 ml. bottle. Pours a very, very light yellow. Decent head. Very faint aroma of malt and lemon. Tastes very, very light. Lots of carbonation. No funky or skunky tastes, so it is drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Perfumey hoppy aroma. Bright golden yellow colour. Minimal flavour - dry, bland metallic. Inoffensive.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton. Label seemed to be more for a chewing gum than a beer....cool and fresh etc. Poured a light gold colour with some bubbles but no real head. Nose had notes of cardboard and grain with some slight citrus. Taste roughly the same. Actually reasonably inoffensive paired up with some super spicy food. Had much worse.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Poured clear, pale yellow with a quick dissapearing head. Adjunct aroma, slightly skunky. Crisp light mouthfeel. Tastes better than it smells. Light grainy macro flavour, with sweet malt. Clean finish. Alright for a lawmower beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, 4.5% a/v
Very light straw colour with a quick to dissapear white head. Looks blah. The aroma is barely there, a bit of chemical alcohol, a bit of grass and a bit of metal (strange out of a bottle!). The taste is rather fruity, almost like green apples. It is very light and bubbly on the tongue with a mouthfeel nearly like champagne. The aftertaste is mildly chemical/malt, though the rice in the beer makes it very dry. This beer is actually better than I assumed it would be.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned. A yellow gold coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. A really corny sweet lager with plenty of chemical flavours and aromas. There are far worse mass marketed pale lagers; this is actually reasonably drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
OOOH. A bit rough on this one. I mean, it is what I expected but it really bites hard on the aftertaste level. I would certainly pass and go Japanese if I had to.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale yellow with no real head. Has a generic stale beer aroma.
Taste was slightly sweet but no real flavor, pretty bland. It had a light body with lots of carbonation. Had with a Korean meal. It makes OB & Cass look pretty good.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. can from The Tin Can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a white head. Notes of sugar, corn, grass. Pretty sweet, actually. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and higher carbonation. Not a whole lot going on here, but unlike a lot of other Asian pale lagers, there’s nothing aggressively skunky going on, either.
