2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a stemmed glass, new country tick. ABV 4.8%
Pours a plae golden yellow colour on the body, with a good sized white head, thick enough, with average retention and medium thick lacing left on the glass.
Very weird aroma, I think it might be infected. Very yeasty with candy sugar.
Taste is something between malt sweetness and white grape sourness, with the malts winning, very yeasty with obvious candy sugar flavour. Another flavour is coming up on the aftertaste, a bitter one with average duration.
Thin body, overcarbonated.
Overall not a good one, I might give it another chance someday but itís not something Iíll hunt down

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. To be honest i was expecting a much worse one. Standard lager, quite pale in colour, clear, average white head. Some mild bitterness, a bit grassy.
