2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml can. Tall meringue of clean white foam above a moderately golden amber base. A little skunky in the aroma with wet grain dominating. Thin and watery with a little bit of a metallic aftertaste. Quite easy to drink. Not the best but not the worst.

33cl Can from Albert Heijn, as Holland Import Pilsener Bier, other side says Cerveza Holandesa. Clear light golden colour, white head. Foul skunk aroma, grain, sulphur. Flavour is light sweet, some skunk, grain, CO2, cardboard bitter finish. Light bodied. Not worth the 35 cents I paid for it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Pale yellow. Some fizzy head. Metallic, tinny aroma. Mild carbonation. Not bad. Has the metallic flavors too but finishes very dry and is really not so bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, found in Hong Kong. Golden colour with a gluey, vaguely malty aroma. The body is relatively full for a macro, with some grassy hop, more glue, light grains and subtle alcohol. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it enjoyable, but at least it’s not objectionable.
