0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is notes of urine, sour vegetables, and plastic. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is trace sweetness, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. HWARRRRFFF. Holy cow. The aroma is mind-bendingly disgusting. I’ve had a lot of swill lagers in my years, and I can handle swill, since I know what to expect. But this is the absolute worst aroma I have smelled in a beer in a LONG time. Does not smell like beer at all, not even bad beer. Something obviously went wrong with this batch or bottle, but these just rolled into the state so are presumably pretty darn fresh. No skunkiness, just reeking of green vegetables (green beans mainly) and plastic, with some sharp pee stink in there as well (like asparagus urine! that’s it!). Just absolutely putrid. It makes my stomach hurt just to smell it. The taste is almost as dirty. This is worse than drain pour...it’s like...wanting to do what Dae-su does at the end of Oldboy. Yeeeesh. I haven’t given many 0.5’s, but this one has truly earned it. Congratulations, Hollandia.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from asda. Golden beer with large foam head. Aroma of sweet cereal grain and a little metallic. Taste is slightly sweet, bready and a mild hop bitterness. Soft on the palate. Not too bad actually.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Asda, Syston. Certainly an improvement on the last one, but the more I drink of it, the less I like it. Grass cuttings smell, reasonably bubbly. Sweet slooshing gobful of sugar snatch. Little flavour. Little aftertaste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
C’est avec des bières comme celle-ci que je me rend compte que je ne donne pas d’aussi bonnes notes à des bières que me plaisent beaucoup et de surcroît, de trop forte à des bières qui n’en valent pas le coût. C’est blond limpide et une mousse typique y flotte. Un nez des plus inodores. En poussant un peu, c’est du malt et du sirop commercial qu’on perçoit. Le goût: céréales sucrées avec une pointe citronnées, qui rend le tout légèrement acidulé. Ça accompagne quand même bien mon pâté chinois. (M.A. 08-15) (1246-200914)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow brew. Mainly cereal and light noble hops in the presentation. Slightly vegetal and sweet, otherwise pretty clean. Nothing special, nothing offensive."
