2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale gold with a large but rapidly fading head.
Aroma is lacking: some grainy malt and possibly grassy hops? A hint of white wine.
Quite sweet upon tasting and amazingly light on. Sweet bready malt is the only discernible flavour. Practically no bitterness whatsoever. Become cloying after a few sips.
Carbonation is too high. Massively high. Very watery too. Considering the lack in flavour, this is not what you want.
Possibly the most flavourless beer I’ve had. Even beats Kilkenny in that way. However, no flavour is better than bad flavour!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle I took to Paul’s place for Kan’s visit. Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Grainy, little bit of lemon. Sweet, empty, little bit of paper. Finishes up without anything of note. Generic pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10/21/09 from 22oz bottle. Aroma is very corny sweet/sour pils with a light, but not objectionable soapy note. Appearance is the lightest clear yellow possible with a very low white head. Flavor is is sour malt followed, followed by sweetnes and has some of the lightest bittering in a light lager I’ve seen. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a moderate carb texture. Overall, simple, even for a pale lager, but this does manage to produce a beer without much to object to.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, 330ml from York Beer & Wine. Pale straw with white head. Thin, soapy, tinny pale lager with a vegetable, slightly putrid aroma, sweet cheap malt on the palate. Just as I imagined it would be, but I had to buy it as a new country to the list.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looked like an unhealthy piss with soapy bubbles.
Good News - served at an icy temperature.
Bad News - the cold couldn’t fully hide the chemical-corn aroma. Oddly viscous feel for a brew with little flavour. Aftertaste was mild, but a vague chemical tang was left behind, making this a failure as even a lawnmower beer.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured with a nice head and it featured a good colour, better than most swills. Then it got ugly. The aroma was almost perfume-like and not in a good way, and the taste was very peculiar, reminiscent of the "smell" and somewhat unpleasant I would NOT drink this again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. BB 10.11.09
Ok so there’s a bit of a story behind this, because as it stands the beer in front of me is NOT Hite Beer, rather a Cleanskin beer brewed by Hite Beer and imported into Australia. Unfortunately information on the cleanskin beer itself is hard to come by, but my assumption is this is the beer.
Very clear yellow gold body, fast dying bright white foam.
Sweetish cereal malt aroma, grain and rice, touch of honey with some detectable floral hops and background of cardboard skunk.
Flabby sort of texture, lean body, carbonation is fizzy and towards the light side, possibly contributing to the oilness of the palate.
Corny cereal malts, good hit of DMS in there i’m pretty sure, honey sweetness takes away most of the subtle hop flavour and bitterness.
Nothing special, though at the price they’re flogging this stuff at the local bottle ’o, I wouldn’t be complaining.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours with a pale yellow fizzy body with a dying white head. Aroma is cardboard and not much else. Taste is grassy with a bit of rice. Fizzy and dry.
